Casey’s Portrait

IMA is having a Portrait Exhibition at the end of this month and I decided to include a couple pieces. Here is the first one I am planning on using… Casey! I based this on a photo I had taken of him a couple months ago. He was laying on the kitchen floor giving me a look that said “you’re bothering me but I am too comfortable to move.” This is a small piece (6.5″ x 8″) but my next portrait will be slightly bigger.

I started by drawing out the design ahead of time. I don’t usually do any shading at this stage but because it is a portrait and I was concerned with capturing his personality, it helped to do a more detailed sketch.
