pencil drawn biker

Postby bluechair84 » Wed Feb 23, 2011 14:36 pm

My girlfriend is an artist specialising in photo-realism working mainly in pencil. She's far more talented than I am or ever will be at anything :shock: And she's just finished a sketch of my riding. So what dya think?

Mostly finished, the bike is just outline. It's now the background to my blog.

Glad you guys approve. Thought it might add something a little less familiar in the general forum.
Yeah she does commissions. She has just finished her current portrait so is freed up for the next. Her webby is also a work in progress at the moment so some things are developing.

What?? When did you ever send Haribo with an order? I tell you what, any commissions for forumites and I'll be sure to put in a pack of haribo just cos I know us bikers expectations are very high :o

She earn's half a living out of it :wink:
She would go full time artist but it's isolating work. If she was to take up more commissions she'd loose out in working with other people so... she does a few a month. Possibly wasted imo, not that I'm bias but I am gobsmacked at what she can produce in her spare time.

I hoped she'd do the rig in all it's glory but... the thought of doing the tyre tread put her off. Very sad face :(
