This week’s featured artist is Amy, a pencil artist who goes by the handle Artlover-US on DeviantArt. Amy started drawing after she was bit by the creative bug while on a summer trip to Paris earlier this year. Since then, she has been drawing, learning and sharing her pencil drawings with the world through her DeviantArt profile, which is now loaded with pencil portraits that put growth as an artist on display.
Amy creates her drawings with a Staedtler 925-65 0.3mm drafting pencil. The pencil’s ultra-fine point allows her to achieve a fine level of detail in her drawings which, in turn, brings her drawings to life. Amy is particularly adept at recreating the eyes of her subjects, effectively capturing the emotion that is often lacking in the lifeless drawings of other artists.
I particularly like Amy’s drawing of Audrey Hepburn. The drawing features Audrey’s eyes, nose, mouth and signature bangs floating in space, but there is no question whose face they belong to.
