Note: Since a couple of people have actually recognised this as Hilary Duff, I thought I better give her a mention! She started life as Hilary, but I thought it a good idea to freehand and didn't catch the likeness at all .. I thought, so she became 'Just a girl'.

EDIT: I'm really sorry for sending out an update to this deviation, I truly hate to do that, but this time I made an exception because the very wonderful *Rockinfroggi has made my awful video sooooo much better :happybounce: I couldn't not share, the link is under the materials list below :)




My first attempt at drawing and recording. It's not a professional operation here at house Paula :no: But I tried my best :)

There has been a sad update to this drawing, it came in the shape of a small 5 year old armed with a 'smudger stick' :crying: So all the hard work on the unblended skin has gone to waste. She looks alright blended, just not as I had planned :( Thankfully she looks much better than the felt pen witch said 5 year old created from one of my other drawings :sniff: ->

Materials this time:
Graphite - 3H - 6B (touch of 8B mars lumo powdered)
Erasers
Blue Tac
Time: About 15 hours
Reference: The beautiful *FurtiveLungs
The Title - I kept the same title as Anni chose for her photo, she had too much meaning involved there and I felt it right to keep it as is.

A LITTLE NOTE AND SOME INFO - I've had several people ask how I got the black so black, I actually get this question all the time, so I thought if I did it in a video it might be a good idea :) The video isn't the best, but you can see what's going on, it was a livestream so it stops and starts a little bit :( I'm redrawing part of the left side glove. The pencils I used were, in this order, 2H, 2B, 4B and 6B.

"Good things about Mr. Ripley? Could take some time. Tom is talented. Tom is tender... Tom is beautiful... Tom is a mystery. Tom is not a nobody. Tom has secrets he doesn't want to tell me, and I wish he would. Tom has nightmares. That's not a good thing. Tom has someone to love him. That is a good thing. Tom is crushing me.

I've been looking at a lot of minimal drawings for a while and I really love some of them. I especially love *IleanaHunter style. So I decided to have a go at something along these lines too, with her permission of course :nod:

Materials this time:
A4 Mellotex, the drawing is about 8"x9"
Graphite pencils - 2H, 2B, 4B, 6B

Tortillion
Time - About 8 hours or so
