Family Portrait Info

This is a graphite pencil drawing of my sister Marina and her boyfriend Johan. The size of this portrait is in size A3. The portrait was a Gift to Johan for their 1 year anniversary.

We were supposed to frame this portrait professionally, but that would be too expensive for my 10 years younger sister.

The Reference Photograph

This is a photograph taken in a pub of Marina and Johan. The photo was my sisters favorite, so naturally we used this one. I didn't create a mock-up this time, just decided to ignore the background and beer in the foreground for this drawing.
