Freehand Famous Faces 1.1
I love graphite portraits. I like alliteration. I love movies, such as Lord of the Rings. Hence, the start of my Freehand Famous Faces series.
I’ve never been comfortable posting the photos from which my portrait paintings and drawings are taken. So, I decided to draw a few recognizable faces. It started with a suggestion from a friend that I do a sketch of John Rhys-Davies, then it spread to other members of the LOTR movie cast. Each is drawn freehand, without the use of projectors or grids. It’s true that I never measure. I know, shame on me. Measuring just takes all the fun out of drawing ;-).
Hopefully, these are close likenesses…and hopefully, they might get me some business :-P. Well, I think that’s enough self-promotion for one day. On this post (and always), I cordially invite your comments and criticisms on whether or not these portraits look like their originals.
