This was drawn from a still re the terrific 1941 movie 'The Devil & Daniel Webster' which I saw quite recently for the first time. The guy in the pic is the diabolical 'Mr Scratch' played with wicked delight by Walter Huston.
The movie impressed me that much (and in particular Mr Huston's performance) that I decided to seek out a good still of the character 'Mr Scratch' and found this one with it's dramatically striking lighting on which to base my drawing.
A pic i made to celebrate my one year Poniversary! Officially, January 21st, 2011, i watched my first episode of My Little Pony the episode was The Last Roundup. The japanese words say "Happy Pony Aniversary"
Two reasons I wanted to do this drawing: 1) It's been a while since I've drawn a female, and 2) Maisie Williams is great as Arya in Game of Thrones.
I'm really happy about how she turned out. This is the first time I've used different thicknesses of pencils in a drawing, and I'm sure I can't go back to a regular mechanical pencil now. On this one I used 2mm HB and .7mm H mechanical pencils, tortillions, and rubber-kneaded erasers.

Karen Gillan as Amy Pond from BBC's Doctor Who.
Just the first time Moffat broke everybody's hearts this season, and I'm afraid it won't be the last.
One day I will get the hang of her hair, I swear. Karen has great hair, but somehow I can't manage to draw it properly. I'm really happy with how her face turned out though. (Although it makes the failed hair even more frustrating. )
