Inspire Me Thursday: In Good Company


Hello, all.

I have had an eye on the Inspire Me Thursday website for some time, but I have never submitted anything until now.

This is a commissioned portrait for the Christopher Family, done in graphite, about 20"x30". I enjoyed drawing this very much, as Mr. Christopher is a good friend.

I thought that this would fit the theme well, as I feel most at ease when surrounded by my family.

Have a great week.

Peace!

Illustration Friday : "Strong"


Hello, all.


I didn't finish this one, but I thought it would be appropriate for this week's subject. A few months back, I posted a different John Henry pic for the word "Legendary". This time, I thought that this embodied Strong.


This is the first stage of my technique. I will add an oil wash next, then a layer of colored pencil last. I still have some adjustments to make to the image itself (adding more rock fragments and other details), but I am pretty much done with this stage.


Have a great week.


Peace!
