A simple portrait sketch created with Corel Painter and a 2B pencil

I’d love to be a better portrait artist. I almost always seem to rely on lines and maintain a cartoon sensibility about my work.

Sometimes when I see a photo I try and see the light and dark areas independently but almost always fall back to lines. There’s a knack to shading the image that I don’t currently possess.

Anyway, it’s a journey, so I’ll keep trying to improve my techniques.

This pretty lady is somebody I’m connected to on Instagram.
