Graphite Portrait Practice – Sister’s Keeper

I am an artist who LOVES color…bright colors…But…there’s times I don’t feel like adding color to my drawings!

I was introduced to graphite/pencil drawing from Jenny Manno who happens to be extremely amazing at it! I honestly had NO idea just how much great art could be create with just a simple tool…a pencil…a graphite pencil, an eraser, and a blending stump! You can actually create amazing art using a regular pencil and save tons of money on art supplies! Lol

These are my graphite portrait practice drawings I did probably 2-3 weeks ago! It started out with me just doodling, making circles. Next then you know, I started turning those circles into faces! I am so happy with how these graphite portraits turned out especially since they were not planned!

Art Prompt – Whimsical Girl

I’m in a Facebook art group, one of many, called @NextJenerationArt hosted by an amazing artist named Jenny Manno.

This particular art prompt whimsical girl was given by a guess artist by the name of  Patricia Saume Mazzei (You can find her on Facebook and checkout her amazing artwork).

This art prompt was so much FUN! I chose to pink and green because it’s one of my favorites color combos! Of course, I love the natural, textured hair too!

Whimsical Big Afro American Girl

I long whimsical faces and exaggerated, long necks. I created the whimsical African American girl spontaneously; I didn’t plan her at all. In addition to loving this whimsical African American girl’s long neck, I LOVE the big, natural hairstyle too!

This was so much FUN creating her! I just used Sharpies throughout including using a black Sharpie for her hair.

Graphite Portrait

I continue to learn and practice working with regular pencil/graphite. This graphite portrait I did was challenging. She looks entirely different from what I originally created.

I ended up erasing the hairstyle I had and giving her a short Afro instead and changed her facial features as well. I am totally happy with how she turned out with the flaws and all!
