I very rarely use pencil for drawing of this kind, but it somehow suited this model. I find pencil quite slow to draw with, but these rough, scratchy pieces make me want to try pencil a bit more. Watch this space ;)
I decided to leave this one 'unfinished looking' as I liked the contrast between the line and tone.
Lots of work to do to improve my portrait skills, but there's something about the composition that I like here.
Does your little one have a favourite teddy bear or toy? Well, I am offering to create their portrait!*
It was an idea I had last Christmas for my niece and she loved it! I recreated her "Doudou" as a cartoon character and she is proud to have him framed on the wall of her bedroom. It is also a nice keep-sake for the parents as teddy bears can become a very important part of the family!
How does it work?
To create a personalized Teddy Bear character portrait - simply send a photo of teddy (where I can see as much detail as possible) and tell me if you have any specific 'look' you would like - ie referencing a particular cartoon or illustrative style (eg. Babar, Sponge-bob, etc.!)
Portraits supplied as: Digital file via email for you to print at home.
