"Maneater" - Portrait Piece


I've been trying to step away from straight forward portraits and move my work into new directions, but I guess I simply had to get it out of my system. It's no secret that I adore drawing pretty girls, but for the last couple months I've been trying to build a whole new portfolio with a new outlook. I've been avoiding face portraits all together. But it just so happens I came across a photo of my friend Ana that really caught my eye. Her look was very feline and reminded of a predator on the hunt, so i quickly started sketching. There was also a strong sense of innocent that I felt in the photograph, so I tried to incorporate that into the final piece. What can I say, pretty girl portraits are my passion and I guess I myself became prey.

Thanks Fish! I was thinking about using it for my business card but I'm still unsure.
