Family Portrait

I know that all of my immediate family members have featured in the comic before, but I don’t think I’ve ever drawn us all together and people were asking just how many siblings I have. I figured I’d post this picture, which I drew for my brother’s birthday a few years ago, just to show us all. That’s my mom in the middle (looking like I draw her in the comic, sans the dark hair. Don’t remember why I didn’t color in the spot blacks for this particular picture), the tall one is my brother, the one with glasses is my sister, and the goofy-looking one at the side is me. 🙂

    Oh, that is a great picture. I love the closeness your family has, though I think you should have put yourself closer to the others. The wolf and the dream-catcher (I’m guessing that’s what it is because it doesn’t really look like one, no web) are nice touches.

    It does seem kind of weird that you’re not touching them, just leaning in from the side. Are we reading too much into it?

    Aside from that, I really enjoy your style here. Very clean and simple, but with enough subtle detail that we see both family resemblance and individuality.

    @Poodles McGee
    yeah it does seem strange maybe it to show there someone missing from the picture that supposed to beside her.. other wise it does seem to scream like she not really that close to them

    I thought it looked a bit odd too till a friend who is a artist reminded me that sometimes its a subconscious thing when you draw a portrait of a group of people that you want to also have you in it to “forget” yourself till the end [since you are behind the pad and are drawing whats “in front of you”] and have to put yourself in after you already “blocked the spacing of the figures”. Either that or our esteemed artist is a “pop up artist” in photos and wanted it to look more like a family photo than a portrait,… you know the type who is always just a step behind when a photo gets taken ,…lol.
