Hi everyone. As you know I’ve been absent for a few months, because of difficult circumstances in my life. During this time I unfortunately haven’t been able to post anything on my blog.
Now I’m back :D. Motivated than ever and I would like to show you what I’ve been working on. These are two portraits I’ve been working on for the last two months:
The first portrait is a 3-D portrait of a dark skinned woman with an Afro hairstyle. The afro in this portrait is made up of small beads. As you can probably imagine it took me a while to finish this. Today I finished it. I am very happy with the result. The second portrait is a black and white artwork of Bob Marley.
This is my first time that I made a 3-D portrait. I like to try new things. My style is very all over the place. I often find it difficult to work within one style. In my previous posts you will see a few illustrations with prints. This is mainly because I love African prints. Eventhough I wanted to work within that style (african prints), I tried something new: The use of beads. I find that very interesting. For the moment I think I will continue using beads in my portraits.
