“Mini” portrait commission in graphite and process

“Mini” 11 x 14 inch commission, graphite on Fabriano Artistico HP Watercolour Paper.

I’ve been in a bit of an art slump recently after accidentally throwing tea all over this commission and having to start on it all over again! I hate it being so delayed (It was meant to be a Christmas gift! D: ) but now that I pushed through my slump and finished it, in a way I’m glad I spilt tea on the old version despite my embarassment. I think the portrait turned out for the better in the end! I really love this piece, I think the sheen on Mini’s fur came out really well without being too obtrusive. 🙂

Tools used: Caran d’Ache Grafwood pencils, AIN 4B 0.5mm lead, one Faber Castell 9000 8B pencil, Fabriano Artistico HP Watercolour Paper

I also have something special in the works – quite possibly the biggest coloured pencil piece I’ve ever worked on! I’ve not drawn anything for myself for a while, and I’ve also not done any works in coloured pencil since November. I’m really looking forward to starting it. Stay tuned!
