Portraiture late 2015/early 2016

Some of my graphite portraiture sketches from the past year.
I started drawing portraits and characters from a young age, Over the past few years I have begun developing a style that focuses greatly on detail, and has a running floral theme also. This style has mainly developed from drawing the things, people and styles that I like. The process of drawing curly hair and repeated floral patterns are very relaxing to me personally, which is nice because I have a tendency to get very frustrated with my own abilities as an artist. I find that building up from small details allows me a sense of control over my work that I don’t find in working the other way around and adding the detail last.
