Nurse and self taught artist.

Being creative is one of my favourite things in the world. I love to draw, mostly realistic graphite pencil portraits of women/celebrities, don't ask me why, probably more fun at this stage). I started taking this hobby more seriously in 2012. I bought all the important materials and began my first official drawing. I wanted to surprise my father when I found one of his childhood photos. The reaction of others is maybe the most rewarding to me.
I really appreciate it if you guys would give me comments on my deviations. That way I know what to work on, so I can become better and deliver realistic artwork in the future. I'm a true perfectionist and will never be (totally) satisfied with results. That's something I'll be working on. The most important thing to me though is to have a good time while your drawing, wondering why the person you draw intrigues you so much and seeing graphite come to life on paper.

Create your own magic moments and enjoy every second of it.

WIP I - Candice Swanepoel by LarissaBoef
WIP I - Candice Swanepoel
Back to graphite.
Right now I'm also working on a portrait of a dog, in color.
my absence.
Still much work to do with this one... I hope to draw my best hair so far. Also the first time without the grid method.
Here's my first work in progress pic of the lovely Candice Swanepoel.

Kingfisher on a branch by LarissaBoef
Kingfisher on a branch
Rainbow Bounce + PLZ 

My second drawing with Faber Castell polychromos. So many colors, what made it a great challenge!
As I've said earlier, I do not recommend to start with this if you're just getting used to colored pencils.
Let me know what you think!

This drawing was made for personal development.
I will not sell this original drawing or prints, as it is not free of copyright.
I apologize for my absence. New job, new responsibilities.
Can't wait to find the time to finish the Kingfisher. Then... Graphite portrait of Candice Swanepoel. I'm not happy with Logan Lerman. Guys are just not my style on paper.
Nobu Llama Thanks plz I want to thank everyone who's ever given a llama to me. Only two away from the Ninja llama. Now that's stuff that gets me excited. Come to mama.

At this time the Kristen Stewart portrait is pretty much finished, except her hair and some details. I keep telling myself that I musn't finish it in a rush, so I won't with this one. Each part of the drawing is equally important!
When I would think that I can improvise with her hair, it could and would seriously reduce the overall quality.

Little SPOILER ALERT :oopsies: ... I think I'm going to draw my next piece upside down.
It should make everything easier because your brain does not trick you that fast to see shapes (you want to see in a face). My brain has to see everything as abstract shapes! Very interesting to me.

So, no WIP number IV. To keep it exciting Oops . I think somewhere next week I'll post the finished piece. So happy that I find my last work, my best work.
