Pencil Commission Portraits by Saimain Pencil Commission Portraits by Saimain
A batch of pencil commission portraits (although technically two of them are trades) in the style of "Disarmed." Done with an 0.5 mechanical pencil on acid-free paper, texture added in Photoshop 5.5.

First is Rivek, a man who can change into a falcon, and he belongs to *fongmingyun! Next is Dion, a character belonging to *Ilenora, and last is Luthrine, an intriguing character belonging to the lovely *SB-Gothic. ^__^ Some digital shading was used on Dion along with the pencil to smooth out the tones in his face.

You can view the larger, individual portraits on my website: [link]

No, please do not copy my work. I would suggest learning to draw from photos and real people around you, not referencing something created by another artist.

Man, I idolize you. Hey, did you take classes for drawing or self taught? And which do you like better, pencil or digital art?

Saimain Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2009  Professional General Artist
I'm self taught. Pencil and digital are the main mediums that I use, though sometimes I also use watercolor, charcoal, or colored pencils. I don't have a preference between pencil and digital; they each have a different look and do different things. :)

How long did it take you to reach this style you have now? And how long did it take for you to master the digital art style you have now? When you're painting, how long does it take to paint the entire thing?
