Do you just do pencil on paper? What materials do you prefer and just wow How long do your portraits usually take? Ok I'm done (I'm 14 so I'm still learning here...)
hi there - thanks so much for your questions: i have, until recently, been very loyal to my #2 ticonderoga pencils - but lately, i’ve upped my game to lyra pencils. they make me feel more official, if nothing else! :)
as for paper - i have fallen hard for bee paper sketchbooks. the paper is so wonderful and thick.
and i’m very, very procrastination-centric - so i sometimes take a long time to actually get down to actually draw/paint. but if i add up the actual time of drawing - usually each one takes about 4-6 hours. that might be over a few days, but that’s how long i’m actually drawing. i get VERY bored VERY easily, so anything more than that - and i’m unhappy.
and btw - i like your drawings alot! i’m an old - really old - so i appreciate your efforts and fully expect you to draw amazing things for years to come!
