Portrait of Reddit User alvapossie and His Girlfriend

Illustration for r/RedditGetsDrawn

A free portrait illustration I drew through the subreddit r/RedditGetsDrawn– an awesome meeting place for artists and art-enthusiasts! Anybody is free to submit a picture- and the community of artists get to try their hands and brushes at expressing it. It’s a great way to network and to get real-world inspiration.

I was asked to paint a photo of this redditor and his girlfriend. For this piece, I focused on designing a dreamy, harmonious color palette.

I also used this as a chance to experiment with Kyle T Webster’s gouache brushes for photoshop. Take a moment to check out all of his brushes–I use them almost exclusively now!
