Beautiful Bride To Be by imaginee Beautiful Bride To Be by imaginee
This young lady is my daughter-in-law Jennette on the wedding day (which was 10-10-10). I recently drew the portrait for her birthday present. If you look close you will also see I drew a small line drawing of the two of them, on paper it's better then on this scan. :)

11 x 14
Graphite pencil
on smooth Bristol
40+ hours

Beautiful drawing . . . and the idea of both the groom and bride on the lower corner makes for an amazing composition.

Every time you put something new up, I am amazed by your talent all over again. How much do you charge to do commissioned pieces?

Thank you so much. :) My prices start at $200 for a semi realistic drawing and then go up.

Don't mention it, your work is unparalleled as far as I have seen personally and very inspiring as well. As an artist you have done what most aspire to at that point, you have admiration and recognition in the beauty of your work as well as your skills in the creation of such things. You also have the ability to make your piers strive to be better at what they do...that is true success as an artist...the money would be nice too. LOL! But I'm sure you get commission requests often.

Thank you again for responding and having such a wonderful gift to share,

Matthew M. Machanian

Thank you Matthew for your very kind words, that was very sweet of you. Drawing in a realistic style has always been a dream of mine, I've been challenging myself to grow for many years and hope to keep at it forevermore. Teaching drawing has been as rewarding as drawing, lately been spending more time with my students then working on commissions....I do need to start on a new drawing sometime sooon. :)
