No. 23 – Commissioned Portrait – Sketches 2017

I was commissioned to sketch a portrait of a friend’s mother from a single photograph she provided. I don’t normally like to draw teeth or smiles but I took on the challenge and I’m so happy with the end result and the client was as well. I was asked to just “do my thing” and sketch her however I’d like (which I have to say is pretty awesome). I wanted to maintain most of the integrity of the image and honor her mother’s memory but also make it a unique drawing with some sketching flair. I’m so pleased with the end result! Thanks for watching!
