Tuomas Holopainen by Priscila Alanis


Tuomas Holopainen by Priscila Alanis

Pencils:  6H, HB, 2B, 4B, 6B, 7B, and 9B
Paper: Canson Tamanho A3

I think this is a superb work in which Alanis brilliantly describes many different textures.  You would not be able to tell it from this drawing, but she is not accustomed to the 7B and 9B pencils.  Although she is young, she strikes me as an artist to watch.  Then, again, I am drinking a freshly ground  Hawaiian Kona blend of coffee and consequently I think everything is brilliant this morning.

  1. Thank you very much for the affection and support in my work!! ^^
    I’m happy!! It’s a honor to me ^^

    Kisses from Brazil!!

  2. You are very welcome, Priscila! Thank you so much for allowing me to post your work! :)

  3. I think it’s brilliant too. And I don’t drink coffee. :)

  4. It always amazes me, Robin, when someone can deal with that many textures and shades in a graphite drawing without getting a muddle.

  5. That is absolutely outstanding. And I’m not just saying that because I’ve wanted to – ah, how do I put this delicately – um, experience Tuomas in ways that would make even Anais Nin blush.

    I thought it was a photograph. The fact that Priscila could manage this with pencil is absolutely incredible. My shot glass is thoroughly tipped to her!

    And thank you, my dearest Paul, for providing me beauty just when I needed it most. First your wonderful self-portrait, and now this – my soul feels a lot better.

  6. Thank you, Dana, for your warm and wonderful compliments! :)

  7. Hello. I happen to stop by via David Rochester’s blog and had to comment on this sketch. Its amazing…

    This artist has really captured the free-spirit within the eyes of the subject and I agree- the texturing is wonderful.

  8. Welcome to the blog, C’hele! I too loved how she did the eyes!

  9. It is beautiful. I used to do pencil portraits a long time ago…its so absorbing, time would just stand still/fly by.
