Getty Drawings by Zimeta Getty Drawings by Zimeta
Back from vacation!

I had a very fun and fulfilling week in California. We went to the Getty, and I sketched a few of the faces I saw in some grand old paintings.
My drawings are -of course- completely off from the actual thing. (As if I had time to linger on one drawing and copy it as best as possible. Hehe.) But it was a ton of fun. Even though some annoying people were watching me draw over my shoulder. :XD:
They were like: :iconstare-plz:

I might submit more of them later... maybe not. Depends on how lazy I am.

Here's my sister's Getty dump:
She also drew these three.

Thank you for sharing your sketches from the Getty Museum too! :) It is really cool to see these three European subjects in your style. It is always a joy for me to "go back in time" at a museum to see the personalities, fashion styles, and hair styles of the past. :heart:

I love what you've done. It is a lovely tribute actually to the old masters to breathe new life into their subjects. I wonder what these gentlefolk would think?

WOW! Even if they're not totally realistic, they're still REALLY impressive! I love the middle one especially--great job on the hair!

Reinterpreting those paintings in your own style is so neat, though! I want to compare these to the originals. Seeing them in a more cartoony way gives them a different sense of life, especially the last one. Thanks for sharing these. :)
