Pencil Portraits and Full Length Drawings

An artist that adopts flashes of inspiration, to add dimensions to her realistic portraits.

Japanese Artist Kei Meguro 目黒ケイ now living and working in the US.

This post sees a mixture of poses, face portraits and full-length drawings. Various WIPs (work in progress) and one drawing study.

Almost forgot the WIP of the stockings. Meguro depicts the texture of this semi-transparent material to perfection.  When compared to the unfinished sketched foot next to it, it makes it stand out even more.

The following was taken from Meguro's site, in which she explains about the materials she uses:
"• What materials you use?
It varies depending on the project, but mainly:
Bristol paper, grid paper, charcoal, graphite powder, Q-tips to blend, pencils varying from 2H to 6B, mechanical pencils, scanner and photoshop."

"• What do you do in Photoshop?
Since charcoal and graphite powder tend to get a bit (actually, REALLY) messy, I scan my final drawings then clean up the smudges to achieve a crisper look in Photoshop.
I also add color and play with layers of textures as well."

Soft drawings, gently laid on the page by the pencil of this talented artist.  They will hopefully leave you with a relaxed and inspired feeling, to match your serene and restful Sunday.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
