Portrait Party: Alina

Alina is one of my blog-friends who inspires me with her lines, colors, incredible ability to draw before she falls asleep and her little ice-cream monster. I was very happy when she agreed to swap portraits with me. I received a few pictures from her and after some thinking and drawing ended up creating 2 sketches. Could not choose which one to go with - so here are both of them.

And here is her version of me:

I like the colors and how shading is done and overall her approach to eyes.

And I enjoyed this experience very much! :)

I am thinking about making a follow-up on these portraits - when I meet people "in person" and we draw each other from real life... It might not happen to all of the portraits but may be to some? ;)
