Quick sketch but then I fussed with the little bit of cut-off arm on the left for longer than the whole rest of the drawing *sigh*. Used ArtStudio’s new gradient fill for the background and regular fill for the figure. Cropped slightly in photoshop on my mac because I forgot – you can crop now in iPad ArtStudio.

Today’s portrait is of artist Richard Shulman, known on flickr as iPad Junkie. You can see his wonderful work here: www.flickr.com/photos/10084921@N04/

I have really enjoyed writing about everyone’s work when I make my first portrait of them. However, I’ve realized that it keeps me from making portraits because of the time involved in making all the links and writing the descriptions.

So in the interest of more portraits, there’s going to be less writing. Instead, I encourage everyone to follow the link above and check out Richard’s imagestream for themselves.
