Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown: Kiss #10

Valentine's Day Kiss Countdown #10

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, I thought I would try a little something special to celebrate!

Believe it or not, one of the more difficult things to sketch or illustrate realistically are a couple in the midst of a kiss. (At least it’s difficult for me to accomplish!) While I was thinking about this one recent day, it gave me an idea for a personal challenge, which would help me get some practice on this task. But it would also be a nice way to acknowledge the approach of Valentine’s Day!

So, for the next ten days I’ll attempt to do a sort of countdown of kisses! Each day I’ll post a sketch or possibly (if time permits) skillo, of couples engaged in different types of smooches. 😉 On the last day, I’ll post a full-color illo of a very familiar couple *wink wink* exchanging the final kiss of the countdown on Valentine’s Day!

To begin, we have Kiss #10! Looks as though these two are already well on their way to some fun and  rather hasty disrobing, but found a moment to pause for a passionate kiss! 😉

I really hope you enjoy this first sketch and the rest of the countdown!

    I will most certainly enjoy them all. Is this pencil, charcoal? Love the lines, etc. It’s on my bucket list to watch you work some day, Victoria.

      Hi Nancy! Thank you 🙂 I truly do hope you end up enjoying them all!

      Actually the illos are all digital. I use a custom brush that emulates a pencil and then use another custom brush that emulates a paint brush. Oh, you’d never want to watch me work. I go far too slow. I’m sure you’d get bored! 😉


    Nice, can’t wait to see them all!!

    Victoria, I don’t know if I’m just extra emotional but I have to say this is the most beautiful illustration I have ever seen. I can’t explain why it’s brought a tear to my eye, I think it’s their faces, their closed eyes & how their heads are positioned. It’s just beautiful to me.

    I love how she is holding on to his shirt and I love his jaw line and shoulder. I’ve always loved the colours you choose but you know what? I love that this illo doesn’t have colour, so simple and elegant. You’ve knocked me over with a feather!

      Gosh Nellie! I don’t know what to say! I am just so floored by your lovely comments. Wow…that has to be the highest praise you can receive on a piece, when it moves someone emotionally like it did you. I can’t thank you enough! I am so glad you enjoyed the sketch so much 🙂

      Hi Pal! Oh, I have no problem at all if you make some fan art! But it would be great if you could credit my work, and really great if you could link to my original sketch! Thanks! 😀
