There’s something about trying to capture someone’s whole look in one simple drawing that’s both challenging and really fun. I love experimenting with colour, and I prefer a playful style rather than serious. I do both hand drawn (above) and digital (below) custom portraits, and although both are fun; I think my preference is in the digital versions. They definitely come out more successfully, because I have way more options for how I create the image.
If I could, I’d probably spend all my time doing portraits like these! I just enjoy them so much. There’s actually a bunch of people I want to draw for the fun of it, but I never seem to have any spare time. I actually had to schedule time to do CHORES yesterday. Fun eh?
The thing is though, I’m incredibly insecure about sharing my artwork; so forcing myself to do it and make a small business from it has been hugely refreshing. It’s terrifying too, don’t get me wrong. But overall I think it’s helping my confidence. There are millions of people out there much better than me, obviously; but I’m not dwelling on it any more.
Anyway, I thought I’d ramble here a little about how much I’m genuinely enjoying them because it’s awesome to find new creative outlets. Plus I don’t think I’ve actually shared any of this work on this blog before, even though it’s all over my Twitter and Instagram.
What creative things have you guys been up to? 🙂
