Portrait Art: Xander

A new portrait drawing today. I’m experimenting with balancing my drawing and knitting skills to create the best overall image. I think the knit brings warmth and familiarity while my drawing brings definition, color, and an airiness.

The reference photo was pulled from the Sktchy app. Images shared there are considered fair use but I still feel weird posting someone else’s photo on my site. However, I’m doing it today (and will likely do so again from time to time) because I want to share how I’ve interpreted the subject. My portrait retains likeness while completely altering the coloring and composition of the original photo.
