Capturing Ronda Rousey Laughing

Rowdy Ronda Rousey Laughing

Laughing Ronda Rousey
A portrait of Ronda Rousey Laughing. Made with charcoal.

I just did this drawing today, starting at home this morning and continued at a local Walmart while my wife was shopping for groceries.  I was out in the car with a drawing book, brush and charcoal(s).

I really enjoyed drawing this picture.  Mainly because it was a pretty picture of Ronda Rousey, but also I got to test out different charcoal colors.  The total time on the portait was bout an hour including the home time.

I like to use a pant brush when I work with Graphite and Charcoal.  I find it more gentil than using a blending stump.  Blending stumps and hard paper products like that, seem to be very abrasive and will flatting and damage the tooth surface of the paper.  They diffidently have their place.  I do use them from time to time.

I would like to say, I know Bob Ross likes to paint happy clouds.  I like to draw happy Ronda Rousy’s 🙂

I know this portrait may not look 100% like her, but I had fun making it anyway.  I’m not an expert, but I like to draw and have fun.


Materials Used

  • Multicolored Charcoal(s): Brown, Black and White
