Portrait of Anas by aneesah Portrait of Anas by aneesah
Anas is my elder brother, but the picture was taken when he was younger. Of course. ;P

First ever pencil portrait, EVER. For class. It's the thing I talked about in my journal entry: [link] . So the 'left brain' drawing was done with the reference pic turned upside-down, and the 'right brain' one was done normally, with the same reference.

The results are pretty interesting, it proved the point. :nod: Though neither of them look 100% like the picture (and it annoys me now 'cause I notice all the things that look different), the left one totally has more likeness. I got an A- for this, I think. (OMG our lecturer grades our work. That's scary.) I find it really shocking how the 'right brain' drawing can look so far off from the real thing, or from the other drawing. :o

yeh i agree, left brain seems more accurate but i guess nobody can draw upside down all the time, so like it or hate it, we HAVE TO love our right brain, hehe

We have to use a whole range of pencils, usually from 2H to ... 6B or so. Wooden pencils too. :paranoid:

It MUST be sharp! (Our lecturer's so unbelievably particular about sharp pencils. :paranoid: ) I'd use mechanical pencils any day (sharpening is so old skool. :roll: ) but dah kena paksa... ^^;

Oh, and my 6B pencil dah pendek after just a few weeks of using it. It was about the length of my pinky finger, so I had to throw it out and buy a new batang.

Well, we use those crank sharpeners (she's also particular about the sharpened part of the pencil being loooonng, which only crank sharpeners can do :roll: ) but I wish we had electric ones. :( I had one before, but cepat rosak 'cause the sensors get less sensitive and akhirnya tak bergerak pun.

The pencils are sharp so they'll make very precise lines without having to tekan kuat. (NEVER tekan pencil kuat-kuat.) The shading's made up of lines, hatching and cross-hatching. Or scribbling or stippling, if you want. It takes a while but shading with lines is neat. :D
