Pencil on Paper
This portrait is a commissioned work that I am very happy with. I put the extra time in and I feel that I produced a great product.

This painting is a commissioned piece.
It was done from a photo that was taken from a cell phone camera.
The thing I want to note is the background work. They were in a densly wooded area that had lots of green leaves etc. I wanted to give detail wihtout needing to draw everything exactly.
So the background ended up being a 3 part process. (1) layering a general color (2) leyering some detail color and smearing it in vertical lines (3) adding detail of leaves and trees that were more pronounced in the forground.
In the end I was very happy with my outcome.
I went to do a photo shoot for a group of college age students who wanted to do a throwback family style session.
I did some extra photoshop work to build on the lighting and color.
