Artist Danny Roberts Portrait of Japanese Model Risa Nakamura (RisaDoll) wearing Glasses

Portrait

Risa Nakamura

The painting today is of Risa Nakamura also known as Risadoll. She has a great look and was really fun to draw. So last week I was experimenting with digital painting. I’ve done a little bit of it throughout the years, but for the most part I don’t enjoy doing it as much as real life painting. For this piece I started out with a black & white pencil sketch in my sketchbook that I digitally colorized. I really like how it turned out. My brother thought it was kinda different for me… What do you think?

  1. I love it Danny, well done! I actually really liked the first version as well (on snapchat) but I looove this one! I tried digital painting but didn’t enjoy it as much either, the feeling of drawing traditionally is just uncomperable to me.

    Can I ask, which tablet did you use for the digital part? Was it Wacom?
