I recently drew a portrait of Muhammad Ali (the greatest) for my Dad, as he is my dad’s all time hero. Please see below progression photos of the drawing and a description. Many thanks…
I sketched using Derwent pencils, and coloured the background blue with a promarker pen. To me, blue is the colour of God and I believe Muhammad Ali was a prophet.
He was an incredible human being, with morals and principles, who stood up for what he believed in, such as refusing to go to war in Vietnam; losing his heavyweight boxing titles in the process.
I have surrounded the portrait drawing with inspirational quotes, of a great social activist and amazing, charismatic wonderful man. Here is the finished piece…
I’m not the best artist in the world anymore lol but I’m pleased to give my dad, my hero, a piece of art for his hero 🙂
Thank you for taking the time to read / view!
Best wishes, Lauren xx
