Radiant portrait, part 1

I've been given the chance to draw a very lovely bride and groom. Although I received this commission over a week ago, I've been so busy with finals that I only recently got started on it. Thankfully, the customer was very gracious and understanding.

But now finals are over, and I'm happy to get back to my pencil drawings. As you may know, I did a lot of oil painting this semester, and I learned a ton of good stuff! I am really excited to apply what I've learned about value and edge control to pencil drawing, to give my portraits a more artistic look - and this is the perfect photo to start with!


  1. that photo is amazing and i can't wait to see your finished drawing! :)
