Pencil Portrait Drawings from Photos

This is a place for pencil portrait drawings, charcoal, graphite and mechanical pencil drawings. In order to be qualified for this section, your drawing must contain at least one human or animal face, pets for example. Most of the portrait drawings these days are done from photos, and perhaps that's the easiest way to draw them. Unless you have a model who can sit for hours without moving, which is an unlikely find outside of professional art studios.

Not exactly a portrait drawing. But tractors have personality, too. Just look at that greasy engine!

Porsche 911 car drawing. Cars have faces, in case you haven't noticed. So it is pretty much a portrait drawing.

This may not even be my favorite digital portrait but it was a good practice. I like the pole cat  ferret and the way she is holding him. The purple background is harmonious with her jacket shirt. This was one of my first digital portrait drawings where I actually got the face right. So that's the so called significance of this work.

Portrait pencil drawing of a girl holding a bouquet of flowers. The reference was taken from feverishly browsing Flickr for a good photograph. When it comes to portrait drawings, that means a lot of contrast between black and white volumes. Once I see something like that, I have to draw it!

A boy with his rat pet. Or it might actually have been a girl. At this point, it's hard to tell. This is a pencil drawing with elements of shadow and light. Just regular pencils were used on a printer paper sheet. Not much of a portrait pencil drawing, in comparison to other work, as none of the subjects look directly into the proverbial camera. But still a portrait nonetheless.
