I've always enjoyed drawing ever since I was really young. Comic book characters, cars, whatever. For as long as I can remember I've enjoyed drawing. But around 1995 when I was about 19 I gave it up. I don't fully understand why. I started getting into different things, collecting, partying, moving around, eventually getting married and working various jobs. But I've recently entered a new transition in my life, a new phase and as a result I've met some new and fascinating people, artists in almost every respect in different areas and I've become inspired by them. My creativity is at an all time high right now and I'm finally drawing again.
This is the first pencil drawing I've attempted in 17 years. When I sat down to think of who I wanted to draw, it took me about 30 seconds and Bruce Lee was the first name that came to mind. I'd never done a Bruce Lee portrait before and now was my chance. When it comes to drawing, I always do portraits, I don't know why. It's what I've always been drawn to as opposed to drawing dragons or fantasy pictures. But I'm a little rusty still having not ever attempted this in almost 20 years, so I have a little ways to go to where I feel comfortable with it. But I'm going to do it, every day and with practice I hope to get better and to be able to do these faster and faster. This one took me a week (way too long) and I just wanted to be done with it already! Anyway, hope you like it!
