This isn't the first human I've drawn, I've actually done a few portraits before for middle school. And last year I had to draw a collage of people's facial features I created from photos. This is just a portrait drawing I haven't done in a little over a year of someone's natural face, so I know I can draw humans. It's just, one: it's not what I'm most known for drawing, and two: I've always had a problem with drawing people.
When it comes to people I like, or people I fine generally good-looking (this guy is no exception), then I can draw them. But if someone was to ask me to do a portrait of them, I kinda hesitate. Mainly because, I'm known for my artistic eyes, I see details most don't, I can make profiles out of cracks in the sidewalk. Though that can also mean I can see things on people's faces, they may have trained themselves not to see, and when I draw it, I'm worried they'd get offended. I think everyone is beautiful or handsome in their own way, but some people don't see themselves like that, and that's the issue I have with doing some portraits.
But if it's down by a photograph and what not, then I'm totally good
Anyways, for those that are wondering who this guy is, let me just shine some light. This is Markiplier
a popular YouTuber whom is known for his very humorous and caring personality. He's known for his charity livestreams and donating to various charities. I've been a fan of him for quite sometime now. I do look up to him for inspiration, and he's the first realistic person I've drawn, for my own personal enjoyment, and that wasn't an assignment. And that's saying a lot, cause most of my realism stuff was done for school
So I'm glad that my first, for my own teaching, portrait drawing was of an amazing and inspiring guy like him.
I do plan on drawing him more, and hopefully develop my own cartoony style with him, and possibly draw more portraits of him, because this guy has some pretty amusing expressions. His face is so animated and I love it
