Isichel

Today’s face: Isichel, inspired by Sktchy. Suzan Colon, who is hosting Mindful March on Sktchy, asked us to post a positive thought with our portrait today. My positive thought is that I know that with every day’s portrait practice I’m improving my skills. It might not show in that day’s portrait but it definitely shows as I look back over my entire body of Sktchy portraits. Day by day, month by month, my skills are steadily growing.

Today’s portrait is of Madeline’s tapestry boots, inspired by Sktchy and this week’s Old School Sktchy challenge theme “stitched”.

Rafael

Today’s face: Rafael, inspired by Sktchy. A very rare portrait without any pen lines … just trying it out to see what I think. It looks/feels kind of naked to me but I think that may just be because I’m so used to those black lines.

Drawn in a Fabriano watercolour sketchbook with an HB pencil, painted with Zecchi Toscana watercolours and finished with Prismacolor coloured pencils.


Igor

Today’s face: Igor, inspired by Sktchy. This is today’s Sktchy Mindful March inspiration photo. I started drawing it early this morning before going to work thinking I could finish it this afternoon – but I ended up spending all afternoon at the animal hospital dealing with a pet emergency. So I’m not feeling very mindful at all and this is looking very half finished but at least I’m posting something- and my dog is going to be fine (though I’m £200 poorer).

Warren

Today’s face: Warren, inspired by Sktchy.

Drawn in a Moleskine sketchbook with a Faber-Castell Pitt pen and Copic multiliners. I didn’t realise the Faber-Castell Pitt pen wasn’t Copic proof – it smudged when I went over it with markers. Lesson learned.
