I decided to do a small drawing that I can work on at night. I’m not able to film my drawings at night because of lack of day light. I chose this Han and Leia thinking that it’ll take just a couple of days. This took about 3 weeks. I didn’t work on it every day and usually only about 20-30 minutes at a time. But I finished it yesterday, yay! The drawing is on 9×12 bristol paper, but the actual drawing ended up being about 8×6.
I know this isn’t my best in recent drawings, the hair is a little sloppy and the skin looks a little blotchy, but I guess the purpose of this one was just for fun. I hope you liked it.
I wanted to take a moment and show off my latest, and actually finished drawing of Lupita Nyong’o. I had started her during the summer but didn’t really sit down and finish her until the beginning of October.
I entered her along with Tom Hanks and Ewan McGregor, into the Arizona State Fair. I went to the fair a couple of weeks later and saw an “Honorable Mention” ribbon on Lupita! I was pretty shocked, its the first ribbon I’ve received for anything I’ve done before so it was a great surprise.
I recently acquired black drawing paper so I can try out white charcoal pencil on it. So when I miraculously had a moment to myself on Sunday, I tried it out on a Harrison Ford drawing. I only spent about 45 minutes on it. I’m happy with what I was able to do with it in that time.
The source picture I found of Natalie Portman was so adorable, I had to draw it. It’s also colorful and happy…such is the downfall of graphite. One day, when I do color pencil, I’ll have to redraw this to show those colors.
This is 5×8 inches.
I’ve always liked Natalie Portman. She seems to do pretty good movies most of the time. Not many actors get a premiere like The Professional and completely avoid the teen movie pigeon hole. She’s always been pretty legit.
