In case it is allowed to submit more than one entry to the creative group portraits challenge, and if the deadline has not yet passed, here is my 2nd entry. This time painted with watercolor and improved digitally. Thanks for the challenge!

Hi everyone, here is my entry to the creative group portraits - it is still rough, but this is as far as I can go within the deadline. I call it Family Xmas, it was inspired by a family I saw in the park : )

An early breakfast of trout, corn cakes, and herbal tea (served with heated pebbles in a turtle shell) along the banks of the Schuylkill River, east-central Pennsylvania, December 1758. Digital and traditional watercolor and colored pencil.

After opening the image click the "..." to set an expanded view with better detail. A near total re-do of a painting I first did over ten years ago. I depict a young George Washington and a Lenape woman, Wynonah, breakfasting on trout, corn cakes, and herbal tea served in a turtle shell cup. They sit along the banks of the Schuylkill River in eastern Pennsylvania in December 1758. Washington's journal was kept on blank pages of the Virginia Almanac, and he wrote with a silver pencil lead holder. If you look carefully you'll see those items. The first version was created for the book "Buttons & Beads" by G. Hardy, and can be seen in my Proko image album "Historical Fiction." #prokochallenge @prokotv @jeff_hein_art #digitalpainting #mixedmedia #historicalfiction #illustration #portraitpainting #groupportrait #redraw

The reference picture is not photoshop by the way. It's my cat walking in front of me while we were taking a picture. The result was kinda funny so I decided to take it for the challenge

Crazy Holidays. I really need to learn how to apply color in my drawings, that would probably make it feel a lot less empty than the way it is now, hahaha.

I think it looks fantastic, doesn't look empty at all. The composition is interesting, there is a good balance between detail white space and the linework is super crisp, letting the details shine. There is plenty to explore, it's great!

I was born in Milan but I grew up in Bellagio, Lake Como, so watching families of tourists enjoying their holidays naturally became one of my favorite activities during summer days 😄

This year I dared to jump with a parachute. I owe it to my wife. I decided to show you how happy I was at that moment. It's me and the instructor. Digital version.

This one right here blew me off. Like the feeling sky diving too maybe.

One of the best ones imo. Really in the spirit of the prompt and a nice, clear, portrait of a unique moment

To express my experience of grief and its complexity I created this two-faced self portrait. Not a traditional group, but I wanted to represent the faces of grief - one we share with the world and one, the more raw one, we hide from most people. acrylic on canvas

That's fascinating. I would have been very confused drawing this.

Hi everyone, here is my first Proko post! I was super happy with the extension so I didn't have to rush to get it in. Just some graphite on some paper. My submission, "Band Practice".

Hello, I am a 14 year old artist and this is my submission. I didn't have enough time for the painting, because of my holiday, but I still managed to quickly finish it. My main focus was on the figures and this is why the backround isn't that detailed. There are some thing about the painting that i dont like, like the tent (I couldn't find a fitting reference). But I learned a lot in the progress of this picture, like drawing fur, trees, bushes and other stuff. I still hope you like the idea of the painting! :)

Really cool the way you're grouping and simplifying shadows, like a posterized look. Such an interesting dreamlike story is suggested

This is an illustration of my daughters playing Frozen with their uncles last Christmas. The catch was that their uncles decided the roles ^^

Hi community, my very first submission: from the series « severance », what if the MDR team got a five minute mini golf celebration…? I have run out of time on refining this one. It is my first real Procreate project and the character design process took much longer than I had expected. Collecting the reference photos also was more difficult than I'd thought it would be ( I put everything in a Pinterest folder: https://www.pinterest.com/creativemack1/drawing-inspiration/severance-proko-challenge/) I certainly had fun creating this and learned a lot by making lots of mistakes ;-) Still, after spending this much time on the picture, I found the courage to post it. Hope it can bring some smiles to those who know the series.

My submission is from old pictures of my wife’s family, she’s the little one in the middle. Her mother always loved painting and art in general, so I put her in this floating portrait, while her father has always been passionate with photography, and took many black and white pictures of his family, so I represented him like that. This was done in Procreate over this weekend, never did anything such intensive before :)

Here is my group portrait. I really enjoyed getting into the likeness of the subjects - a mash up between two photos. Thanks for critiquing and looking at all these submissions, Jeff! "Family Dynamics" - graphite on paper.

"The Faces of Jake" approx. 16*20, graphite on stretched paper I used this group portrait as an opportunity to not represent different people, but rather different emotions. I enjoyed playing with the subtly of different features and how small changes in the eyebrows or eyes can change the whole expression of the face.

Interesting composition and well executed. I particularly like the use of shadows to accentuate different forms/emotions.

“Off The Glass!” Here is a shot of myself, about to take my youngest off the COVID plexiglass at the grocery store. Partner and my oldest are busy building their collection. Initially I was wearing a cap and had a less worried expression but it made it look like I was stealing my kid (Yikes) .First time I’ve drawn my family. Happy how it turned out.
