Vintage Couple portrait, finished!

I am really, really happy with how this came out. I wish you could see it in person; the scan didn't capture all the details.

The lace on the dress took a lot of patience. I drew it while watching an entire season of The Office (the UK version); it helped keep myself from getting bored while drawing and shading and erasing and shading and drawing all those tiny little patterns.

It was worth it, though. Once she received this, the customer told me, "I've been showing alot of people your drawing & they can't get over the detail. They love it!"

See this drawing in progress: part 1 and part 2.


  1. AMAZING! I wish I could see the face of the giftee/s when it is opened!

  2. Wonderful, and you captured that young love!

  3. You are really very talented! I used to do portraits when I was younger. I found some a little while ago and shared them here :
    I hope to get back into it someday. Wonderful work!!!
