  • Jerry : Graphite Portrait Complete


    Jerry, custom graphite pencil portrait drawing by Leanne Wildermuth

    I’ve completed Jerry’s portrait and received the proof approval from my client, so this piece is now officially complete!

    Much has changed since my last update, I’ve blended a medium tone over his whole face, then lightened and deepened further to get those final details. It’s turned into a very artistic yet lifelike rendering that I’m pleased to sign my name to!

    I’m still working on a few other projects as well, another drawing, an illustration – and two blog/site design clients to button up before Christmas. Can you believe how fast the days are going by?!

    Wow. That’s really awesome – I liked it when it was not even finished, but this is just awesome! You’re doing better than some we saw at Montmartre in Paris.

    Wow… I’d no idea you could wrest that much emotion from graphite! His hair and especially his eyes are so alive!

    So, Leanne, are the animals going to have to compete more often with humans for your artistic time now? :dance:

    This turned out beautifully, Leanne. You’ve definitely captured the essence of an interesting man who jumps off the paper and seems to come to life right before our very eyes.

    As always, it looks great! I always had extreme difficulty drawing/painting people in art class. Animals – fine. Still lifes? No problem. People? Come out looking like the hunchback of Notre Dame.

    Wow! I landed on your blog looking for information about WordPress blogs and OMG!!! You are also an artist!
    You are an incredible illustrator and painter.
    And I have to say that I love your blog design as well.
