Trying to let go and just have fun

Keeping it quick & loose This sketch was inspired by a Lee Jeffries portrait.  I am a big fan of his work.  I find his images so raw and powerful.  I just can't resist sketching them! The goal with this sketch was just to keep it simple, try to capture the main features of the…

Tarana, Inspiration via Sktchy

Thank you, Tarana for the inspiration. This is Tarana,  I found her inspiration photo on the app Sktchy.  Her unique look and bold ear jewelry caught my eye. This sketch was created in Procreate.  I'm really enjoying sketching digitally, but, I'm going to have to force myself to put it down and spend some time…

More Procreate!

Another Lee Jeffries inspired portrait Continuing with the theme of my last portrait, here is another portrait featuring hands on the subject's face. This was drawn in Procreate and is based in a photograph by Lee Jeffries.  I took a slightly different approach to the finished portrait this time by adding a touch of color.…

I Can See You…

Something a little different... This is a little different I guess, at least it's not a full portrait. This sketch is based on a reference photo I found online.  I liked how the hand partially obstructed the face, the dark shadows added even more depth and mystery. I may continue with this theme and produce…

Procreate Portrait of Mr. Pegg

I'm really starting to get comfortable with Procreate... This is Simon Pegg, English actor, comedian, screenwriter, and producer.  I came across a wonderful photo of him that I found intriguing.  I decided to create his portrait digitally using Procreate. I apologize but I do not know the name of the photographer.  So I am unable to provide…

Imitation = Flattery, Right?

Drawn to Unique People... Whenever I go looking for an interesting face to draw, I seem to gravitate towards those individuals who exist on the outskirts of society.  I prefer to draw an individual whose face is unique, tells a story, or gives an indication of the life lived. This portrait, like all my works,…

More Fun with Procreate

and what fun it is... This is Jonathon, he is another face from my Sktchy Queue. Jonothan has been in my queue for a very long time.  He's been waiting on me to purchase some black paper so I can create a proper sketch of this wonderful inspiration photo.  I still haven't purchased any black…

Unexpected Magic During The Morning Commute... As I've mentioned before I live in a rural area in the Foothills of northwestern North Carolina.  Each weekday I commute about 35 miles south to a nearby town for work.  The drive takes about 40 minutes and takes me through mostly rural farmland. As commutes go, I consider…

Whitling down the Sktchy Queue

One down,  lots more to go... I am slowly working my way through my saved Sktchy references.  This particular reference has been in my queue for an extremely long time.  I'm glad I finally got around to creating this portrait. I think she has a unique look.  I liked the messy hair and the contrast…

Southport Waterfront

Southport Featured Image

As I mentioned in my last Sunday Snap post, we recently returned from a trip to Southport, NC.  This is a charming seaside town with good photo opportunities.  During this past trip, we walked along the waterfront near the mouth of the Cape Fear River and I took the opportunity to snap a few photos.…
