Keep in mind - this is rough sketch in..basic idea of where things go and what not. The eyes and mouth are off..I realize that..but this is my base to work from. Detail work is next..

This one will be fantastic. Is it hubby with Chris? Are you going to use color on this one?

No - this is a co-worker of mine with his son. No color. He requested graphite so that's what he is getting. :)

Love the look in their eyes, nice beginning, and very good shadowing, this picture makes me smile every time I look at it :D:D, thank you for sharing your work.

Thank you all. I wish that I could work faster. I could update but it's not a huge amount done (although it took my entire lunch hour to do that tiny little bit) so I won't until I get farther along. Maybe next week.

LOL. I showed it to him today and he said I had "mad skills"..so I take it he likes it. :D

Started working on the little boy today. Have to fix his mouth but had to stop because lunch hour was over dagnabit.

Started working on the background. I am not a fan of the background in the picture but he wants it put in. It is very "busy" so I think I am going to put it all in and blur it out. Currently the trees and background are fairly sharp, which is fine for the photograph but does not translate well into a drawing.

This is turning into your best work.

TerryCurley
08-10-2015, 02:48 PM
This is such a wonderful picture. You are smart when it comes to pictures. You know what works and what doesn't. I think blurring out the background just a bit is a good idea. It was just yesterday I was looking at my tiger picture and how I made the bamboo trees in the background so distinct --- I was too uneducated to realize I was taking away from the tiger by doing that. So that's one mistake I have learned from.

it's wonderful chanda and it made me kinda teary-eyed 'cause I remember my lovely grandpa letting me ride his shoulders back then..he passed away when I was still in grade school..I miss him so much..so thank you for the wonderful drawing..^^..

Can't wait to see the finish on this Chanda.. it's working out great!

chanda95
08-18-2015, 01:41 PM
Thank you guys. I appreciate it. Mine is going slow slow now..I think part of it is that I am being stubborn about the background..just don't like landscapes. Anywho..here it is..background is a major work in progress..it will get better.

just

Take your time. The background is coming along nicely.

You are doing great Chanda, as always.

It's looking really nice :biggrin: I really like the way you're shadowing, very nice, me like :vs_clap:
And still love their expressions, love their eyes :laugh:

Thanks! I got a little more done. The way I figure a little is better than none at all. I still have lots to do on the subjects themselves but if I can get the background knocked out of the way the rest will be pretty simple.

TerryCurley
08-19-2015, 01:38 PM
It's looking real good so far.

Why do landscapes have to be so time consuming?

TerryCurley

It's coming along great.

I almost never do a background. Yours is making the picture even better. Love this!

Thanks! If you only knew how much I hated drawing landscapes and backgrounds..lol. It's terrible how much I dislike it.

But you're so close. This should be expensive. Your art is at its best.

Too Kind! Did some more..at the moment just doing tree placement..will refine them a little later...or maybe not..might leave them as they are..

just

Leaf them like they are.

The background trees look fantastic Chanda. I can't imagine what you would change on it.

Got some art therapy in today! Feels good to be closing in on the background..I still have to a lot to do on it and a lot of additions to make on the people but getting closer and closer now!

Don't overdo the background.

The Daddy is going to be so thrilled to get this. It's really wonderful.

chanda95

Don't overdo the background.

I don't plan on it but I see some angles that are off in the shadows that need to be fixed and then finish up those trees..:wink:

Thanks. I hope so. He hasn't seen it since the early stages.

Thanks guys. I opted to take a break from the background and focus on a couple of things I have been putting off (the hat and his tattoo). Don't ask me what his tattoo is but that is what it looks like.

Well this will probably be my last update until completion. Doesn't look like I did a lot but I am doing detail work so a lot of it isn't real obvious. I am going to finish it up..show him and see if he wants anything else added or changed and then I will share the finished product.

It looks better than perfect. I'm impressed.

Thank you!

I think I am done. I don't want to keep pushing and ruin it. I see one tiny little thing I want to work on but the person requesting has seen it and seems very pleased. Once I get a better picture (this is not a great as it was taken with my cell phone camera) I will post it in my albums and send it away to it's new home.

Then I get to start on another one...:biggrin:

Thank you! I am happy with how it turned out. I wasn't so sure when he asked me to draw it if I could pull it off. I am pretty proud of myself because I feel this was a tough picture to draw. Of course I always see things that I think need to be done to it but I just told myself that nobody else is going to focus in on those things that I am seeing.
