I'm a jack-of-all trades, basically. I am artist Mickey De Young of Holly Hill, FL. I create artwork, handmade soaps and knitted items. My soaps will be available on Etsy soon. Commissions available for both knitted projects or artwork. Email for information.
This is the first completely freehand drawing I've ever done. Total working time approx. 4 hours over 2 days. Graphite pencil on plain drawing paper. It's not an exact likeness, but I kinda wanted him to look more "pirate-y." All-in-all, I'm fairly satisfied with this piece. I may go back and darken some shadows and lighten some highlights still, then repost the final version at a later time.
Graphite and charcoal drawing of Julianne Moore. 8"x10" on bristol vellum paper. Completed in June, 2010. This was my second portrait and took me a lot longer to complete. I spent months picking it up and then putting it back away before I finally settled down and really made an effort to finish it.
