I haven’t had time to sketch in so long! I’m planning on starting a new series of portraits, and who better than the Disney princesses, who are, let’s be honest, my main daily inspiration?
This portrait has been sketched completely by coloured pencils, and I used very little reference images so that my work is original in pose and colour. Apart from the obvious princess artwork, I was also inspired by headshots of early Hollywood stars such as Clara Bow, Jean Harlow, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, which is fitting with the era when Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs was released (1939). They always looked very dreamy as they look off into the distance with their big doe eyes, which is what I happily managed to capture in this drawing.

going for my own take on their original costumes, but I’m replacing the black/grey tones with more vivid colour for a more bright, interesting quality. Continue reading “Art | Gotham City Sirens | Work-In-Progress Colour Pencil Sketch”

I’ll admit I actually haven’t drawn in a while. A couple of years ago, I set myself a challenge to sketch a 3-5min Disney-themed doodle a day which I’d then post on my social media accounts. This got quite popular, and I’d get requests from Continue reading “Art | Lavender’s Blue, Dilly-Dilly, Lavender’s Green | Cinderella Coloured Pencil Portrait”
