All of these drawings I did in my 10th grade Art II class. The pictures were taken by my art teacher so I can't guarantee they're of the best quality.

The pictures go from the very first one I did (Johnny Depp) to the last (Joe Strummer). You can obviously tell I became more comfortable with the medium as I went along (I'm more used to computer-oriented art).

Sadly, my art teacher lost my portrait of Thom Yorke at the end of the year.  Undecided


Johnny Depp, from a picture I found in a magazine. In real life it's pretty big, around 14 x 11.


A portrait of my older brother, Jon. The lips look strange because in the picture I based it off of he had the weirdest look on his face. Like he ate something sour.  Cheesy Before doing this, I never realized what a meaty neck he has.


My favorite and the one my teacher lost.  Embarrassed Thom Yorke from Radiohead. Shading all of the dark spots was a bitch.


Joe Strummer. This is the last one I did, I finished it sometime around October. I don't like the shading on his left cheek, I'll try to fix it later. My pencils are different than the ones I used in class and you can tell if I make a mark with a different pencil.

I have another I did in my spare time of Trent Reznor but I can't seem to find it. I also have a half-finished one of John Lennon but I don't think I'll continue working on it because it isn't all that good.

I love them.  I think the first one and the third one are my favorites.  You are a credit to your art teacher, and you have a real talent for drawing portraits.

i admire your talent so much. i can't draw at all! At least you have a photo of the Thom Yorke one, i guess. It is amazing! And it could turn up...i know my art department always clears out stuff every couple of years and finds stuff people did years ago. If you know for defo. that it's not returning then i'm sorry for my above rant Tongue
great job anyway! x

oh my god! Those are wonderful. I'm a big time radiohead fan, and i've always though Thom is a little wried looking, but you captured hum beautifully. If you're teacher didn't lose it i'd probably buy it (or a print). Also, i would KILL my teacher if he ever lost something of mine, mabye yours just liked it, kept it, and said he lost it. haha

Oh, I'm sorry for replying to all these so late, I haven't checked this thread in a while because I wasn't expecting many replies.


Also, i would KILL my teacher if he ever lost something of mine, maybe yours just liked it, kept it, and said he lost it. haha


I almost did! But my art teacher was (I say "was" because we're getting a new one this year) a tiny old lady and she looks like if a bad wind hit her she'd float away.


And it could turn up...i know my art department always clears out stuff every couple of years and finds stuff people did years ago.

Last semester my art teacher found a painting by a student that she had misplaced behind a cabinet. The painting was from a student who had graduated in 1994! So I still have a bit of hope that I'll somehow find my drawing.

Grin Thanks for all the kind words! I'm taking Art III this year and can't wait to see what projects we're going to do (hopefully a lot of painting/drawing, I absolutely suck at pottery). Although I am a bit nervous because I heard our new teacher is a bit of a...witch (for lack of a nicer word). It'll be a change from our old loopy art teacher who used to do a little dance around the art room while we worked.
