Day 15: Family Picture

oconnorkids_watermarkO’Connor Kids – Lisa, Alan, Glenda and Gemma

Some time I might decide to colour this sketch but for now I’m leaving it monochrome. It’s not often myself, my brother Alan and sisters Gemma and Glenda are together in the same country in order to get a portrait together which makes this all the more special to me. I’ve said I love drawing faces but drawing likeneses of family (and smiles) is HARD! I’ve got to say I’m pretty happy with the progress of this line drawing though.

Day 13: Comic

Today I thought I’d do a few quick portraits in a ‘comic’ style… (well, I’m not big on comics!). When I was a child I would doodle faces all day long. One day I had a thought – what if all the faces I had ever drawn had their own little world and personalities, and in drawing each one, I had made these creatures come to life?! Scary stuff for an 8 year old!
