ADRIANA LIMA - a portrait by tomjogi ADRIANA LIMA - a portrait by tomjogi
Now, this is a new one. This took me a bit longer, lotīs of sweat and a big portion of patience ... but the result is very satisfying. The portrait of Adriana Lima (I think a famous brasilian model with astonishing eyes) is my best one so far (to my opinion). I hope you like it, too.

I used all kinds of pencils, mechanical and normal, from HB to 7 B.

Note: when I joined deviant art about two weeks ago, I thought I could draw well, ... but then I saw the work of some folks here ... and was simply amased and kind of speechless. This opened my eyes a bit and I said to myself ... thomas you have got to make much more effort to achieve some really good work ... I think that my work moved a bit closer to that direction ... the target is set, the wayīs still long - letīs go to work again.

Bye ītill later, many greetings from Germany

can you please teach me how to draw real people, i know you are probably very busy, and i know it takes practice, but i am a really good drawer, just not as good at realism, if you could just take a few minutes of your time to tell me how (in traditional drawing) how you shade and make the face proportional, i would appreciate it more than you could ever know! just any tips you can provide
