Katiusha Feofanova – Art in Motion

It took me a few days to drawing and film this timelapse video. So I had to speed the video up 7000 times faster. If only I could draw that fast….

Artist Danny Roberts color pencil sketch of Swedish IMG model Julia Hafstrom daily study sketch

Art

Julia Hafstrom – Sleeping Beauty

Coming from an illustration/contour drawing background, I’ve been working on improving more loose shape based drawing and painting. This sketch of Julia Hafstrom is inspired by John Singer Sargent. I used green construction paper and color pencils and lightly scribbled in Julia’s form. I tried to focus on it feeling right, instead of worrying about it being accurate.

P.S. Just a reminder, a few days left till the end of the month. If you want to be eligible for this months’ rewards on Patreon sign up now ;)

Japanese model Maihee portrait by Artist Danny Roberts

Portrait

Maihee (まいへえ)

I have been playing around with getting richer colors in my drawings. This portrait is mainly color pencil and then i layered in some extra color digitally. I’m really happy with how my portrait of Maihee (まいへえ) turned out. It is definitely one of my favorite portraits that I have done in a while.

I’ll be giving away this drawing at the end of the month as part of the rewards for the Scholar group on Patreon. Make sure to sign up as a Patron for a chance to win it :)

Inspiration Friday

The Siren Inspiration Book

Since we all need Inspiration from time to time, may I present the The Siren Inspiration Book Part 1. I made this book years ago for my friends Sophie Ward and Stacy King to be an inspiration for a collaboration project we worked on called “The Siren Who Loved”. The book is 355 pages. None of the pictures are mine, just images found on-line. I’m really excited how it turned out. Even though the book is just an “in-house” book, I wanted to post a few excerpts out of each section, in hopes it inspires yawl. Hope you like it.

Artist Danny Roberts Digital painting Portrait of australian blogger Jessica Stein and her daughter Rumi

Portrait

Jessica Stein + Rumi

I meet Jessica Stein (tuulavintage.com) a few years ago when she was out in California. She is an incredibly kind person, and when she had her beautiful daughter Rumi, I had to paint them. :) Lately, I’ve been trying different techniques when I paint. Most the experiments have been done Digitally due to the quick turn around time (no paint drying 😏👍). In this painting I was working on blending less and using large blocks of color to imply shape. I’m really happy with how it turned out. It is always fun drawing friends.
