Pencil Drawings
by Bud Norris



Welcome to Bud Norris pencil drawings gallery. His pencil work technique is just outstanding in a sense that it has a very gentle cartoon-like touch, in the best sense, of course. A very sensitive edge which is not yet a cartoon but not a truly realistic portrait drawing. Yet, the look of the portraits is very realistic and that is, in my opinion a very cool skill and drawing technique.

I like how Bud creates cool shading contrast on each portrait. Subtle face expression details, strokes, all are captured very well, and those little tiny details create the realistic look of the portrait drawings.

Just see the face wrinkles and face expression on John Wayne’s portrait or J.F.K.’s look with his one eyebrow risen…those details are so important to notice and capture well on paper.

You may also have noticed that each side of human face is not equally the same. Almost always one eye is bigger that the other one. One eye is almost always positioned higher or lower than the other one. That is the beauty of human face, and Bud Norris captured those very well.

Drawing portraits is one of the most challenging disciplines in art, I dare to say. Artist must observe very precisely everything, to the tiniest detail. I always stress this point because to develop the skill of good observation is the very core point in any visual art. You simply must learn to remember – to train yourself memorizing the details.

Eagle flying pose is greatly captured. It looks as if the eagle was just going to “touch down” on a tree or a cliff.

Bud did the rose bouquet drawing so well. Distinctively and very clearly visible almost each detail. Shades on the rose petals and leaves are very well done.

Drawing of Zorro riding a horse in this super cool action position has a true dynamic expression. Very few artists are actually able to create a live dynamic in the drawing or painting. Usually we are most captivated by action of some kind on artwork.

All Bud Norris’s drawings would look also great if made in blue color.
