And Baby Makes Three…

Here is the latest family portrait! The outfits of the mother and daughter were adjusted to match the father’s uniform, creating the sense of a family unit. I particularly enjoyed drawing the daughter’s chubby cheeks. Naturally, when you have a group sitting in a somewhat static pose and facing forward, the overall composition can be […]

Bernini Sketch

The portrait of Monster and Tank is a wedding anniversary present. Monster (the cat) and Tank (the dog) are busy bodies, so getting them both in the same photo was not a possibility. Instead, several seperate pictures were used to create this single composition. Monster is the more aggressive of  the two, which is why he […]
