I struggled so much yesterday with just getting something started for building up my portfolio. Sometimes when I am overwhelmed by the massive undertaking of a project I become almost paralyzed with the enormity of it all. So today I am doing better and am able to focus better on the steps that I need to take rather than just the big picture.
One of the sections of my portfolio that I am working on is my caricature/portraiture work. I seem to have a knack for drawing people and for some reason I haven't really pursued it professionally. So I thought I would start with Obama since he is so fun to draw.
This is a study for an ink and watercolor illustration.
Drawn with a 0.9mm mechanical pencil.
