This is the original reference photo
This painting was very fun to do. I enjoyed the change in subject matter and the strength of the composition in the original reference photo that didn’t take much altering. The commissioner wanted his face to look more recent, as the original reference photo was taken about 10 years ago.

These are some sketches and drawings that I dug out of my old notebooks. Some are recent and others are from when I was only 15 (in 2002.) These aren’t really commissioned portraits, just things I drew of friends and family, pictures out of magazines, Mom’s old book of actresses as well as some live poses from figure drawing or college classes. Enjoy!
This commission was done for a friend. It is done in pen and ink and is 2 x 3 ft. It took about three weeks to complete. The finished product had highlights of color in the bamboo and face of the panda, but I documented it in black and white since I liked it better.
