Drawing of Frank, completed by nimra Drawing of Frank, completed by nimra
“Drawing of Frank Rugani”
Commission pencil drawing
Graphite on Illustration Board, 22” x 30”

This drawing took quite a bit longer then I figured, this of course affects the bottom line, but I have to be happy with the outcome, commission or not.

Is something like the sweater necessary for the success of a drawing? No it’s not, but its necessary to please my own artistic endeavors. Underlying within the results is the journey taken, a journey through every centimeter of the man’s face, getting to know the pits, wrinkles, the clearly of the eyes, the moisture on the lips and so much more gives this journey meaning. Once you draw someone you will always look at that person in a differently light, maybe with more honesty.

Thanks for looking

Armin

Is the sweater necessary? Damn right it is! Your need to please your artistic endeavors made this portrait just that much better.
