Alex Fine – Graphite Work



It occurred to me after posting this image on Facebook recently that many people were not aware I often draw portraits in a different style than my usual editorial style.  I’m hoping in 2013 to introduce my graphite realism to more editorial clients.  Here is a selection of just some of the portraits I’ve drawn in the past few years.   I also plan to keep up my regular ink style, I just always loved realism too!
