For a Father. by dreamarian For a Father. by dreamarian
This is a graphite commission for a friend.

Lexi used to bar-tend for me a few years ago and has since become a qualified social worker. This is the first of 2 pieces for her. It's a portrait of her, her son and sisters for her father as a father's day gift.


I have one tiny worry. I'm using the same sketch paper I always use but for some reason this page had fine vertical lines on it. The graphite made dark grooves that I had to work hard to blend away. I hope the whole sketchpad isn't like this.

Why does everyone want drawings at the same time? Who gave the bat-signal?...One down two to go.

Beautiful!
I hope the rest of your paper behaves, otherwise I'd file a complaint and ask them to replace it. It's pretty useless if it's grooved!

I've now used 3 sheets from the drawing pad and it seems like it was just the first page. It would've been a problem for my color drawings but I think it'll be fine :)

This is really awesome Simone! :iconlainloveplz:
What size is it? If it's not too big, it mus have been hard to draw faces in that size :faint:
I really love how you did the hair, and the whole soft but detailed shadings! :heart:

And no worries, you managed great with that stupid paper, can't see any lines! :la:
