CHILD PENCIL PORTRAIT – LOGAN
Another one of my recent works, Logan the young boy pencil portrait. This one was particularly enjoyable for me, creating each stage of the piece until that cheeky smile shone through was great. The piece was done from 3 separate pieces of reference, so combining these was initially quite tricky, ensuring that none of his characteristics were lost when creating the composite to use as reference.
With all pencil portraits the smallest of marks and shades can create quite dramatic changes to the facial structure, this is even more so when drawing children as there complexions and overall face structures are quite pure and unblemished, so even the slightest of shades are crucial in the overall appearance of the subject. gallery.
The customer gave feedback when they presented the birthday gift; “Just to let you know that as I suspected my nephew was moved to tears to receive the portrait of Logan. Both parents loved it so thanks again. What you do is very special.”
