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"

I notice that you are great at drawing teeth. I guess all that extra effort paid off. For me, the toughest part were drawing the hands in different poses and sometimes drawing a unique looking nose would get me :D.

Thanks man! If I'm honest, teeth, hands, and noses, all give me trouble as well. I spend a lot of time drawing and erasing until they look somewhat realistic. Just can't go too dark right away, as that always makes it more difficult.
 
When I was younger, I actually started with more of a comic-style influence, drawing full body illustrations. However, after struggling with proportions, hands, and feet, for many years, I realized I wouldn't have to draw them as much with portraits, haha! I guess I have more patience trying to get facial features accurate, as they all play a role in capturing a likeness.

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! :)
