Ol' Pete


Author Comments

Two pencil drawings of my neighbour Pete. Picture references, no tracing, 4-5" tall each. All in 2B pencil. (Just so there's no questions)

They maybe took about 3-4? I don't like the larger one as much..

Also there is another one to complete the 'set', like frames of him walking, but it's gone so oh well.



Very simple, very life like. He really looks good. Nice Job man...

Proportions be damned

I was going to agree with the reviewer below, however, I came to realize that it's the essence of the man that's IS right about these pieces. Sure, the legs look a little short, but the overall "feel" is absolutely fantastic. Very well done. I stopped my rating short at an 8 because I believe in having SOME kind of background. Maybe a shadow, maybe just one tree. It just grounds the piece. With that being said, I think that the piece could REALLY capture a Norman Rockwell esque feeling of familiarity in the candid. Thanks for sharing!

People find this review helpful!
Otto responds:

Ahh I tell you what, when I get my pieces back when I go back to college (high school) then I will bring the piece with the background, but I don't have it at the moment. :)

And thankyou for the review!


i Like them! the proportions are a little off, but this give a nice cartoon feel, with a realistic style, AWSOME!

Otto responds:

Thanks man! Yeah the proportions are partly me and partly that when I took the pictures his shins downward were missing so I tried to make it up and got his legs a bit short I think. Still he had these insanely wide trouser legs anyway that flapped around too hahaha
