When it comes to life, don’t take anything too seriously, remember no one gets out alive. I saw an amazing digital art by @Pokagh on Instagram, decided to edit it in my own way. It simply illustrates the issues of multiple ladies ever requesting for free artworks. Annoying really, artists deserve to be paid decently for their endeavours not cajoled into doing free jobs.

CLIENT ART

I decided to spice up my monochrome style of portrait art by colouring accessories and clothes of the reference images. Turned out that the clients loved it a lot. I used acrylic paint but based on the cost of acquiring the paint, I had to increase my fee. The unpainted image is a free portrait of my ex-manager at Ventura, Ibadan. I had placed my artworks there for a while before I took back custody due to certain issues with management. But no hard feelings, forging ahead and we are still best of friends.

JUSTIN BIEBER DRAWING

Been awhile since I practiced drawing a celebrity, I believe every artist has his or her own style and I’m definitely not the hyper realistic type. My niche has always been acrylic painting but doesn’t mean I don’t like to try all sorts of art.( Digital, etc.). Here’s to a multi talented artiste, Justin Bieber. As usual I shade with pencil grades B, 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B. In that sequence, then blend with a tortillon wrapped with tissue paper.
