Pencil sketch of David Cameron

A drawing of David Cameron because drawing isn’t like riding a bicycle, essentially if you stop doing it for a while it gets much worse. I can’t illustrate this without drawing something that everyone can recognise, obviously it isn’t a very good likeness, but I guess you will concede that it looks a bit like him.

The tricky bit, from the artist’s point of view is trying to work out what exactly is wrong with it. Eyes, nose, chin, etc. presumably without being able to this it is difficult to improve.

From a technical point of view, all of it was drawn with this grade B pencil and the original is A4 size, time wise I think it too about an hour.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
