Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Drawing is something I've been doing since I was a little kid and it started with helicopters or at least I called it helicopters, but didn't look anything like it :P.

A few years later I started drawing horses and playing recorder. I developed a lot in drawing horses and playing music.

Then in 6th grade I started an orchestraclass and learned a lot about music and started playing other instrument like paino and guitar, which I mostly learned myself to play but the orchestraclass help me a bit on the way;)

I also kept on drawing horses and in 9th grade I could draw photorealistic horses.

But I wanted to take my drawing skills to a whole new level. Pencil portraits.
So I started drawing a portrait of Aro Volturi from New Moon because I was a huge Volturi-fan.

Now, since I started my first year in Highschool, I'm very good with portraits and I'm developing more and more.

I also still plays recorder, piano and guitar and just keep getting better ;)

Best regards
Jennifer :D

American Paint Horse Portrait by Yankeestyle94

Watercolor painting of an American Paint Horse.
My first watercolor painting in 4 years and I think it turned out great.
It was fun to work with some color and take a paus from the graphite pencils. :D :D ;)

Time: 15hours
Tools: Winsor & Newton watercolor palette, 2H graphite pencil, colored pencils
Paper: 300g/m2 water color paper A3

Water color Horse Painting wip 2 by Yankeestyle94

Layer 3 done!!! :D :D :heart:Painter 
This is how the color contrast looks after three layers of watercolor. It starts to take shape the more layers I add to the painting, instead of adding too dark colors right away.
This technique makes it easier for me to fix small mistakes and change colors if I have to. ;) :D :D
Water color Horse Painting wip 1 by Yankeestyle94
Water color Horse Painting wip 1

Background and layer one done!!:D :D :D :D

I'm a bit bored with just black and white drawings and want to do something with color.

I personally love water colors and I have my own techniques when I'm working with that medium.

I work on dry water color paper instead of wet since it makes the water color dry faster.
It gives the color some lines, but I want that since it's suppose to look like the hair on the horse. :D :D :D ;) ;) :heart:

As you can see, I've added a light layer on the whole horse which helps me add cool gradients everytime I add more color.

It's also the easiest way for me to correct some details if I have to.
Instead of adding a bold color right away.
And the more lighter layers I add, the easier it is to create a more realistic effect to the drawing. :D :D :D

I'm not expecting it to look hyper realistic, but as detailed as I can which means smaller/thinner paint brushes the more layers I add. 

I try to avoid white and only use the white on the paper, but I might add some white as a finishing touch. :D :D :D ;) ;) :heart:
American Paint Horse SKETCH by Yankeestyle94
American Paint Horse SKETCH
This is the outlines of a new drawing that I'm working on right now.
But this is not going to be a graphite drawing...what it's going to be made in is something you are going to see later :D :P
Inca Mayan TATTOO by Yankeestyle94
Inca Mayan TATTOO
This is a tattosketch for a customer who wanted to build up his own tattoo(which is the black detail in the middle).
He wanted some shadows behind his own tattoo for a 3D-effect and around it he wanted a ring with Inca/Mayan patterns like the ones on a totem pole. ;) :D :D

He also wanted four gemstones, three that looked like diamonds and the fourth as a diamond heart.
The diamonds was suppose to be in purple, red and burgundy like the birthstones amethyst, ruby and garnet.
The heart was suppose to be white/silver like a diamond is. ;)

The Inca/Mayan patterns was suppose to have a stone texture like they were carved out of stone and had some cracks like it was old stone.
:D :D

Time: 6hours
Tools: Colored pencils, Black KOOH-I-NOOR pencil leads, Tombow eraserpencil & Ruler
Paper: 135g/m2 A4
