Renewed respect for all portrait artists. It's the most difficult subject matter in the world! This is from a project that I've been working on (well, struggling with actually) and it's right out of my comfort zone. I gave up trying to do realistic and went for the old line-drawing-stylized type of thing. I still feel unsure about posting it especially as there are such great portrait artists out there. I feel like a bit of an impostor. This is a subject (portraits, not Freud) that I would really love to get better at. However I choose to draw inanimate objects as opposed to living breathing beings. I wonder what Dr. Freud would have to say about that.
