Portraits aren’t really something that I am used to drawing. But I wanted to try doing one for my brother in Christ Tony.
Who, along with his wife and family, have become so much a part of my heart and have blessed me so very much.
So this is the result of my first effort at doing a portrait since I have started getting back into my art.
The above picture is a camera shot of the finished sketch. Sadly the light wasn’t too good. But it does show the finished item in slightly more detail than a scan.
The above picture is a scan of the Lion of Judah picture that I had sketched for Tony. Because it is a scan of a pencil sketch it doesn’t really come out very well but it does show a flatter more complete (if you will) view.
I called this sketch ‘The Lion of Judah’ because it really suits both the subject matter ( Lion and Jewish flag in the background) and to Tony and his faith.
As always I am extremely critical and never completely happy with my own work. But since I don’t usually do portraits and have only just started getting back into my art, I am fairly pleased with it.
