Lately I haven’t been able to draw since I hurt myself (those daily life issues) and I still can’t doodle speedpaintings, so I got this idea to show some gifs of the process of some of my previous works. It’s not a very specific substitute, but it will help you to see the steps that were taken for the final result and it can be educational and interesting.
Today, I would like to show you the process of the last request I finished. If you like it, let me know and I will keep uploading more!
Since the end of this summer I have started out the habit of not doing the portraits exactly like the pictures, I end up modifying the look, adding some little details that were not on the original pic, etc. It’s funny because in the past I was obsessed with copying the reality just the way I used to look at it.
Now, I wonder, why should I draw what you get through a picture? (if it’s not for the usage of some studies)
Which is my style? Semi-realistic? I actually don’t know and I don’t worry about it. However, in order to enjoy drawing the best thing you can do, it is to do it in the way you love the most, without trying to get a label on yourself. Since the moment I started drawing the reality in the way I see it, I feel so much better than when I used to imitate it!
And that will be it for today’s reflection!
Coming soon, I will upload the portrait of the Instagram raffle winner and some other stuff.
Thanks for reading! 🙂
