I had messed up this picture. I was trying too hard to get the tilt right. It is important that I do or the expressions is wrong. I have been reworking the top part of the face. I have the correct tilt on the nose on up. I have a long way to go.

Looking good Bro.. This is one of the hardest angles to get right in portraiture.. Just hard to get it to look right.. you have it down I think!

Thank You. It is not quite a profile and her head is tilted to her right about 5. She is facing me in our wedding. I have already posted the one of me.

No. They are too messy for me. I'm using charcaol two which are shades of brown and watercolor pencils. I used the same with the other two pictures.

Maybe you can make it work? I personally think you HAVE made it work. It's going to be lovely and that is a tough angle to work with. You are pulling it off beautifully.

The difference from the original load to this last one is remarkable! She is beautiful, reminds me of my mother.

Thank You. I had been unable to work on it for a few weeks. I was thinking of throwing it away before I redrew the eyes and nose to the correct angle. That was the first picture.

She is lovely! What a great subject for these most recent drawings (you and your wife), do you have special plans for them?

We are framing them and hanging them on the wall together. It is in the living room. It will have only our pictures on that wall. Another one has 6 pictures of my two kids that I drew. I am going to add pictures of her three kids after I draw them.

That is great! What a legacy. I have been thinking about trying my hand at portraits so I can honor my loved ones the same way.

This is a temporary arrangement. I sure she will rearrange it.

This is so lovely..really sweet to make portraits of your lovely family :')
I wish I can do the same but my portraits of any person (even just a portrait of me) turns out cartoonish. @[email protected] so I seriously need lessons..

I personally prefer to use pencil and make them in black and white. The secret is to avoid the unnecessary lines by using shape shadows and highlights.
