I recently finished another portrait for To Every Tribe. This is my forth drawing in a series I'm calling Faces of the Nations. Each portrait drawing highlights an area of the world where we have missionaries seeking to bring the gospel to unreached people groups. This drawing takes us to South East Asia. These pencil drawings take me roughly 50-60 hours over the course of a two month time period. Check out the process for this newest drawing below.
|At the start of every drawing, I need some good paper, pencils, |
and measurements. For paper, I've used Rives BFK since my time in college.
For pencils, I've been using Caran d'Ache for a couple years.
|I also use tracing paper to protect the drawing so I can rest my |
hand on the paper while drawing.
|You'll notice the light lines. I trace my drawing out at first.|
Then I add all the details.
|My computer is my best accompaniment for drawing from.|
|I use this spray to seal/protect the drawing once it's done.|
