Another Repin Academy sketch

Since I am currently practicing some figure sketch and am so very fond of Ilya Repin’s work, I decided to try my hand at another mastercopy from images found on Google’s image search for “Repin Academy of Arts drawings”. This was much more challenging… Continue reading Another Repin Academy sketch

“A Time To Herself” – quick charcoal figure sketch

Rick “The Muse” – quick charcoal portraiture

Good evening!

Posting a quick portrait drawing I did this afternoon. I’m posting the reference photo, the tools I used, and the final result.  It’s pretty basic but I’m happy with the end result considering the speed at which it was drawn. I’d like to be able to draw a semi-realistic portrait in about two hours. This one was just a bit over that limit. Continue reading Rick “The Muse” – quick charcoal portraiture

Morgan Freeman “Unforgiven” – charcoal portrait drawing

Good evening!

Just completed another western portrait drawing of Hollywood actor, Morgan Freeman, from the movie “Unforgiven”. Hard to believe it’s been well over twenty-seven (27) years since that movie was made. Hope you enjoy. Continue reading Morgan Freeman “Unforgiven” – charcoal portrait drawing

“Tatiana” – simple charcoal portraiture

Good day!

Just posting a simple charcoal portraiture of “Tatiana” today. I classify this portrait as “simple” because I did not spend time rendering detail in the drapery or worrying about every single curl of the hair. I’ve provided a reference photo for comparison.  Continue reading “Tatiana” – simple charcoal portraiture

“In Darkness, My Madness Comforts Me” – charcoal portrait/figure drawing

Good evening!

Trying something a bit different. Still working with charcoal but this time a little bit of an expressionistic twist. Don’t worry. It’s not a nude. Continue reading “In Darkness, My Madness Comforts Me” – charcoal portrait/figure drawing
