Since starting this illustration journey at the start of the year, people hasn’t been my strongest point. I love to draw food (obviously) and little quotes. As that’s how I started out at the beginning of the year, I think I’ve gotten pretty good at finding style and cementing myself for it.
So much so that I’ve managed to gain 7,000 followers on Instagram! Don’t get me wrong, at the start of the year I had around 5,800 and to have grown by over 1,000 and likely having lost followers along the way, I’m so so happy and for that reason, I’m going to start looking into portraiture.
I’ve seen a drawing challenge going round creating a half and half portrait of yourself. Half is a photo and half is a drawing you’ve done of yourself. What better way to challenge myself.
I actually ended up doing my portrait twice, as I wasn’t happy with the way the first one came out, it actually ended up looking a bit scary.
I challenge you.
If you’re on Instagram and like a drawing challenge, I’d love to see you create something similar with your own photograph. Make sure to tag me so I can see it (@thebeccabynature). I loved the way my turned out in the end and feel the style I’ve started to create for my food drawings is also coming through in my other art too. Even though I’ve only just started. What do you think?
Finally, I just want to say thank you to each and every one of you for being a part of my journey. Whether you like my vegan content, my illustrations or you simply support me as a person, I’m so so thankful.
I’ve gained a lot of followers on my blog here too and if you’re not already I’d love to see you as part of the tribe on Instagram too. I share some extra illustrations on there and you’ll also be able to take part in my question of the day via my Instagram stories. On there I share a lot of my day to day life too, so you can get to know me even better.
