Every once and awhile my mother will recruit me to draw a portrait for someone as a gift. I took lessons when I was in seventh and eight grade from a Korean man and he was amazing. I learned so much about drawing the human face and learning techniques I never would have thought of. It's been about 6 or 7 years since I took those lessons but they are stuck with me!
I did this portrait of my nephew for my sister-in-law as her Christmas present. She loved it! I wanted to show the process of how it was done: outlining, facial features, and filling in.
