Time Out by pat-mcmichael Time Out by pat-mcmichael
This time I took the advice of Master Graphite Artist-Armin Mersmann. He politely suggested that I move away from celebrity drawings and fan art and compose something original! I snapped a picture of my adorable niece Lindsey, just after her parents sat her down for misbehaving. She wasn't happy that I took her photo in this mood, but I thought it was a real, genuine emotion that would make an interesting drawing!
This is a mood that is not very often captured or recorded in portrait form....which is also why I thought it was cool. She was really giving me the STINK-EYE.
note: Lindsey has a couple of my original drawings hanging in her room ( Sleeping Beauty, Belle, little mermaid ) seen in this gallery.
11" x 14" strathmore 300 series smooth bristol paper.

Actually Pat, you are one of the few artist out there who can take a celebrity photo and re-invent it to be original, unique and make it your own. Sill I love seeing this, its wonderful and so moody – a fantastic drawing.

Nice likeness. Course when she's older she'll kill you unless you do one of her in the opposite mood for contrast :)

I'm jealous..Armin M. gave you advice! Thats awesome, and bravo for stepping out of your box..you did a wonderful job capturing her emotion of being completely pissed off! lol. It's realism, Pat M. style...you can pick out the hair from anywhere, no matter what you draw! Lovely.
