Drawing style

portr_verybigman (800x567)

Here are two sketches working from the same model and ending up with two quite different results. I liked the eyes and the fact the guy was of such generous proportions. Usually not trying to make anyone I draw look beautiful but rather exaggerating flaws, while drawing these I start to appreciate them. Will Terrell, cartoonist extraordinaire and generous youtuber, cracks me up when he goes people sketching, lovingly-jokingly talking of going where the”wildlife” is, which describes it so perfectly. If you take a look at your fellow passengers like a new species you find different aspects to their features and of stylizing these.

(Some sketches may in fact be older than the dates given and have just been touched up a little before my scanning and uploading them)

The young lady in the first image may end up holding a teacup or a candle stick in the end.

And all of them are patiently waiting to be taken into the realm of colour, contour and shades.
