This week’s featured pencil artist is Nicole Hamilton, a self-taught photographer and pencil artist with a background in graphic design. Nicole started out like most artists, sketching cartoon characters from TV, movies and comic strips in her spare time at school. Unlike many desktop doodlers, however, Nicole took the next step and turned her hobby into her profession.
Nicole’s first drawing was of the Tasmanian Devil and, at first, she was a bit hesitant to begin drawing human figures. Lucky for us, she overcame her fear of recreating the human form and discovered that she possesses the ability to create some very lifelike pencil portraits.
The subjects of Nicole’s drawings vary from people and pets, to celebrities, cars and building studies. She also has an entire gallery on her website dedicated to Star Wars pencil portraits, which is awesome in my book. She accepts commissions for portraits and even has a section of her website devoted to explaining how to pick the perfect picture for your portrait.
