My first pet portrait in oils, this was a lot of fun. Creating depth in the white fur was a challenge! It took over twenty hours to complete over several weeks. Oil paint has a very slow drying time which sometimes requires taking breaks between each layer.
Oil on board

I have started drawing some famous basketball players to raise money for my local wheelchair basketball club . Kobe Bryant is up first. Over the years I’ve designed several tattoos, but I’ve never had to draw a person who has them. The hardest part of this drawing (so far) has been making the sweat on this head look realistic and drawing the stubble. Both of these elements are also drawing firsts for me, so overall this project has been a massive learning curve. Keep an eye out for the finished piece!
This is done on A4 paper with a mechanical pencil with 4B and 2H lead, and an 8B graphite pencil.
