Andy Leslie's
Portrait Drawings




Andy Leslie’s gallery is truly an amazing sight. Her realistic portrait pencil drawings are simply stunning. The theme of Elvis Presley pencil drawings is perfectly chosen and is really a great theme.

We all know Elvis and therefore can see how awesomely well she captures his face features and expressions. These realistic drawings truly look like photos!

Drawing realistic portraits of people is quite a task. Most of us are drawing them from photos because that is one of the easiest ways. Still not everyone can capture the very essence of the portrait.

Human face has a very specific set of dimensional characteristics. Someone can learn and master those just by intuition and practice while others need to study the proportions, dimensions and shapes like math.

In portrait drawing, if you make only one simple incorrect short pencil stroke on critically important place, it may completely change the entire portrait. Those subtle stokes and lines, those super tiny details are the most important factors.

Did you know that every face is defined by the following 3 features?

  • the eyes
  • the nose
  • the mouth

  • If you get the three above right, then the rest of the face – even if you make some slight mistakes – will look like the person’s true portrait.

    If the portrait you draw is a famous someone, like musician, celebrity or historical figure, then it is even bigger challenge because everyone knows the face, and…

    …if you make any small mistake, everyone can recognize that almost instantly, so the pressure for “perfection” is even harder. But let’s not get slip into that useless “pressure cooker”. This website is not a drawing competition and no pressure is required.

    We all want to feel at ease and relaxed. Here, we are learning how to draw. It is also very natural that not all drawings or sketches would look like a photocopy, and that is the beauty.

    As Andy Leslie often comments on herself, she is still learning the art of realistic drawing. We can all see her tremendous progress on every of her portrait drawing.

    If you are portrait drawing enthusiast, or you want to learn how to draw portraits, this is a perfect site to observe the details on these drawings.

    I believe you can get a lot of inspiration from her awesome artwork and apply those experiences on your own drawings.
