So this is James. He’s my brother and he shares an energy and passion for soccer!
I’m experimenting more with color lately. Stepping out of my comfort zone that I have with graphite and working towards the goal of having the color as realistic as possible. This one was a challenge. There’s a lot of things I have to do differently than I would with my graphite pencil. Although not anywhere near “perfect”, I’m still happy with this drawing and will have more knowledge when I work on my next color piece.
This drawing was very enjoyable for me to work on. What made it a challenge however is that I didn’t really have a picture to draw from for the girl in this drawing. I had found a really nice one of the guy but he was alone in it, so I had to figure something out. I ended up finding a catalog picture for the girl which helped a little to get started with, but then I was on my own to think about where the shadows went and such. Anyway, it could have turned out a little better if I had had a picture where they were together, but I’m still happy with the way it looks. 🙂
