Ed Miliband pencil sketch

Drawing Ed Miliband is fairly easy, however this first attempt done during lunch time today only seems to be Ed Milibandish, once again I have kept to a grade B pencil. I have avoided rubbing out and smudging it with my finger, the drawing being done with the tip of the lead and the shading with side of the lead.

What I am working towards here is being able to quickly paint the main political figures in watercolour with out any sketching in first, probably somewhere between a caricature and a portrait along the lines of the one I did of Cameron the other day.

By way of explanation here his left ear is righter than his right ear, his left eye is righter than his right eye, or is it type of thing.     
Another Ed Miliband pencil sketch, this time my tea break, a few more of these and I will have a go at painting him.

  1. I do not consider myself competent to comment on your portrait work bearing in mind that I'm satisfied just so long as I can draw breath. Though I am quite good at drawing conclusions albeit they are not necessarily accurate.


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.
