Portrait Party / Kerstin and Karen
This double entry owes its existence to a blog called the Portrait Party, where pairs of artists agree to draw each other. Kerstin at Snowflakes and Black Vampires invited artists to join her in a kind of friendly competition to be the most prolific of the Portrait Partiers, so I volunteered to help.
At top is my rendering of Kerstin, based on a photo. Accuracy-meter seems about a 7 to me; I think her eyes look a bit too close here, but then again that's based on the photo. I found myself thinking about what she would look like in person as I was drawing.
Below is Kerstin's portrait of me. She definitely caught a Karenesque expression.
I like them both, and I really like the challenge, so if anyone else is up for Portrait Partying, give me a holler. And do head over to the Portrait Party - it's a great idea, and very entertaining.
