Okay guys, so the other day I rented a movie called 'Big Eyes' and it was about a woman named Margaret Ulbrich who was a gifted painter and had a style that was unique and all her own. She was married to Frank Ulbrich before she left him and moved away with her daughter. While trying to live on her own she did random paintings or sketches of people at fairs or stands to make supplementary income. One day she met a gentleman named Walter Keane and later married him. He knew of her art and later took credit and became incredibly popular for the art. It wasn't until she left her husband that she took him to court to gain rights for the paintings that he was passing off as his own. Once it was proven that she was in fact the original artist of the doe eyed painting, she was awarded 4 million dollars. This drawing was inspired from Margret Keane's artworks because to me they are incredibly beautiful. I hope you like the tutorial, it is one of my favorites that I have done today. We will learn how to draw big eyes in the form of a small child. Thank you for joining me with this lesson, and if you get a chance rent the movie Big Eyes which was also directed by Tim Burton. Adios folks and enjoy!
