Tennis player

27 Feb

I found a photo of a tennis player in a local ad paper, and decided to use it for a pencil drawing.

The facial likeness isn’t really good and there are some slight mistakes in the drawing, but overall I’m quite pleased with the result.

The first things I did was to draw the frame around the photo, the net on the foreground, and on the background the letters RIB and the bottom of the back net This gave me enough guidance for drawing the tennis player.

I didn’t trace the photo. It was all done freehand, in two hours, using a 2B pencil on no-name 120 g/m2 drawing paper.

After I was done, I found the photo that was used in the ad paper on the Internet, look here.

That is all.
