I have a tough time with open mouths like that.... 
This little guy made me smile.  :-D

Haha, thanks! Mouths can be tricky, especially when the inside is in shadow. Depending on what picture you're drawing from, most mouths aren't completely black--you can still see the general shape of the teeth.

please can you recommend any reference books because I'm really in portraits

pepperbunbun Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you! Try searching deviantart for portraits. That's how I have found a lot of amazing portrait references--just make sure it's okay with the artist to use their photos as a drawing reference. You could always do a general internet search for portraits as well! :)

thanks alot ^.^

but i mean references for learning portrait cause i'm still learning it and an expert advice would be helpful.
Reply
:iconpepperbunbun:
pepperbunbun Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh, I print out whatever reference picture I use for a portrait and make the drawing the same size as the reference print-out. That way, I can lay the reference picture on top of my drawing then flip back and forth between the picture and the drawing to see if the proportions are lining up. Is this more of the kind of advice you were interested in?

I don't think you drew this It looks too much like a photominip a pencil filter over a gray scale version of the photo.

pepperbunbun Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I guess it could look like a pencil filter over the original photo, but this is truly a drawing. Some of the proportions in the drawing are a little different from the original photo (eyebrows aren't as high, lip doesn't slant to the left, left nostril isn't as big). Here are some pictures as I worked on it, too.

I love it! That little guy is just too cute! And I know what you mean about taking a long time to complete a drawing. I recently finished a commission that was in the works for maybe half a year...

Thank you! :) Wow, half a year--that's a while! It takes a lot of patience to keep working on something that long.
