Meow! by RayPelesko Meow! by RayPelesko
Here's my portrait drawing of the model/performer Skin Diamond. It is based on a photo that I took of her. One of the most stunning women I've ever met in person. Really cool and gorgeous girl!

Graphite on paper, approximately 8" x 10"

Thanks so much! This is one of my favorite pieces I've ever worked on. I love portraits that have an expression to them, and enjoy trying to capture that within my own drawings! I'm honored you like it! :)

Thanks again, Sharon!! Of all my portraits, I think this one might be my favorite. I came the closest to capturing her expression and eyes. :D

The personality that comes through... wow! Its more alive than a lot of photographs. And after looking through more of your gallery, I have to say: you've got an incredible gift. :)

:thanks: Thank you so much Clint! It means a great deal to me! I love trying to capture a subject's personality, especially with their expressions. It often frustrates me when I'm drawing, as I don't always feel I've recreated their likeness until I get close to finishing a piece. And that only comes after spending a number of hours tweaking elements like the eyes and mouth.

This drawing of Skin Diamond is one of my all-time favorite pieces I've created thus far. I just love her smile! :)
