Freckle Face


At my new job I brought with me an unopened moleskine book. In my free time I practice drawing as much as I can. I had the idea of drawing a girl with a lot of freckles. I thought it would be an interesting assignment to give myself. It was a few days after Christmas and the office was pretty empty so I scribbled away by myself. One of my co-workers asked if I do commissions but I said no. It’s too much trouble. I’d prefer to draw what interests me at the moment.

I love freckles. I wish I had more of them. When small, I had a long string of them across my whole face--a parade of freckles. But, unfortunately, years of acne wore them away.

Wow. I really like this one. Beautiful job on the freckles.

Wowza! She's beautiful! This is exquisite, Tommy -- her expression, the composition, the colors and, of course, the freckles!
You're quite the prolific and talented artist...

Great job. I don't know what I like most about this, the freckles, her eyes or how you did the hair. Wonderful sketch.

Tommy Kane said...

Ditto Jason. This is one of my favorites too. Very strong composition and wonderful line work with that pen.

Wow she is just GORGEOUS. I think the frecles do make it...but she's gorgeous anyway!

Forgot to add; her skin tones are just amazing. What do you use for the colour?
