Mayumi Ogihara 荻原真由美
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Canada
I'm a self-taught pencil artist, originally from Japan, and currently living in Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. Born in 1965, happily married with two sons.

Art has always been a part of my life. Many of my family members have artistic and creative minds, and ever since I was a child, I have been influenced by their beautiful works.

I like all sorts of arts and crafts, but I particularly enjoy drawing. I've always been fascinated by the simple beauty of art created using nothing more than a pencil and paper.

In the beginning of my drawing career I was mainly working on portraits, but in recent years, I've discovered a passion and love for creating fantasy themed art. The majority of my artwork is done in graphite pencil. I also work with coloured pencils and other media from time to time.


Thank you so much for visiting! :heart:

:star: Update :star:


I can't believe it's already middle of October. I have to start cleaning my garden before our rainy season starts! Very often I put it off too long, and end up cleaning soggy dead plants that's hiding lots of slugs. Ew...

Once again, I'll be participating in Sketch Fest this month. We have a bonus Sketch Fest which will start from tomorrow 12pm to Saturday 12pm in AKDT time. Regular Sketch Fest will be on Oct 31 ~ Nov 2, 12pm - 12pm AKDT. As always, my original sketches and prints will be available in my gallery - www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/s…

Enchanted Visions is a project created in 2009 by Amy Brown and Jessica Galbreth. It began as a simple, amusing game between two friends and evolved into something more... Every month a new theme is given to inspire the participating artists. The artists then create a new artwork for that theme. The only rule is that the art submitted must be a new artwork created specifically for the theme. Artists do not have to participate every month, and are encouraged to work on previous themes. Enchanted Visions is not a contest. It is a tool to help keep artists inspired, creating, and hopefully having fun.

Wow I love your art :D, it looks great and your skills are very good too :). Do you use references for it? I am always wondering if people are able to create all these differenet type of faces themselves or not.. I always end up with similar looking faces if I don't use any referece :S.

I hope to see more work from you  ^^, good luck with everything!

Thank you so much :heart: I do use references for poses or facial expressions, but not for achieving likeness. I used to draw from photographs, like celebrity portraits. Even with some of my older fantasy drawings, the faces do look more like the models from the reference photos. All those drawings I did in the past helped me to learn anatomy and details of faces/figures, and that practice and knowledge give me freedom to draw different faces ;)

Wow that is really cool :D! Maybe I should use more references as well :). It is good to hear that you learned a lot from using them :), also for knowledge about faces and differences between them. Thanks a lot for explaining :D
