This is not a totally original idea but I thought it would be an interesting challenge to try out.  So here goes.

I normally do portraits based on movies and movie actors - and it's rare that I draw 'real' people :)  So in order to flex my drawing muscles and to keep things interesting, I thought I would do portraits of fellow artists here on deviantART.  I thought this is also something nice I can do, for all the people who are kind enough to watch me and who take the time to comment on my work.

All you have to do is comment on this post and I'll draw a picture of you.  Of course, I'll need a decent reference picture to do that, so you can either post a link to that in your comment or email the pic to me separately at karthik82@gmail.com

Of course, in case I get an unmanageable number of comments, I will limit the number of portraits drawn.  But really, this is not something that is likely to happen, is it? :)

Let's see what results come out of this little experiment of mine... should be interesting...

Thank you very much, for having responded to my suggestion (and I want to apologize for my terrible English, because I'm Russian, I have some problems with it)
as you behold this photo, it's not too hard to draw?

Challenge accepted! That's a nice picture, I will draw it. I will let you know how it turns out and post the result.

And you don't have to apologize - as long as others can understand you, it's all fine :)

It's interesting to meet someone from Russia. Since I'm a big movie fan, the first thing I think of when someone mentions Russia are the movies Night Watch (Nochnoi Dozor) / Day Watch (Dnevnoy Dozor). In fact I recently got a DVD of the 'International Version' of the first movie: [link]

Yes please :) Please do send a picture of yourself and I'll definitely draw it! Choose a nice one, one that you would use yourself as a reference image. :)

I was discussing this with a friend of mine just this Saturday - she actually started a 'portrait project' and started doing some pictures of her family. She was thinking of doing drawings of others as well, who are on her Facebook friends list.

That's where this idea came from - I was thinking of doing something similar to this for a while now. But I never actually went ahead with it. When we discussed this I thought why not go ahead :)

Take your time, no hurry...

And who did you draw from dA? I had a quick look at your gallery and could spot one - Karen Hinson - I am also 'watching' her and her pencil portraits are great... did you draw any others?
