Birthday Lego Portrait Commission

 
I picked up this Birthday Lego Portrait Commission online. A woman wanted her boyfriend and herself drawn as mini-figs for her boyfriends birthday. I’ve never drawn a mini-fig before, but figured it would be a lot easier than drawing realistic portraits. I ended up using some renders of characters from the Lego videogames as my “models” to create the base drawings. To create the faces/clothing/hairstyles she sent a few pictures of her and the boyfriend for me to work from. I captured them both as mini-figs fairly well, and now that his birthday has come and gone (where the drawing was very well received I was told) I can post it up here.

I was contacted via Email by this girl in regards to some portrait work. I was not overly eager to take the commission as I am not great with portraits but up to that point my portrait experience has been from live drawing. Turns out that when I’m working from a photo (like I was for Sydney) I can actually pull of a decent likeness.
