Similar Deviations
It's finished :dummy: Full view please :)

This time I wanted to challenge myself and draw some skin with freckles. I have to admit though, the hair could be a lot better, I just did the hair a bit quickly :ashamed:

If you want to compare this drawing and the photograph to see if I did every single freckle similar (same thing for the hair), don't bother.
This time I tried to use the reference very loose. And I did this on purpose.
I still drew the main things close to the reference, but drawing this way, I was free to add details that are not on the actual photograph.

Some artists stay very accurate to the photograph and some use it very loose once they've drawn the correct proportions. Honestly, drawing this way is (for me) a lot more relaxing.

Tools:
-B, 3B, 8B pencils
-Smooth A4 Paper
-tissues
-Blending stumps
-diffrent kinds of erasers

Lately, I've been "fixing" a lot of drawings but also transferred to drawing on A3. There are so many unfinished (they take so much time :faint:) So I thought, just to take my mind of that huge size, I'll try my first attempt at drawing a miniature :)

The size is 3cmx3cm (2,- size).

I actually waited a few days before I posted it, so that I can take a good picture of it when the weather is clear. However, the weather is so unpredictable over here. Of course, my camera and my lack of knowing how to use it doesn't help much either. So this is the best I could do. (I could scan it as usual, but than you can't see the size)

Tools:
-B,6B pencils
-mechanical pencil
-pencil sharpener (I usually don't mention this)
-tissue combined with pencil eraser

Inspired by the awesome miniatures by :iconcataclysm-x:

It's finally done! :faint:
I'm not really glad with the outcome as there are so many mistakes, but as usual I'm kind of lazy :lmao:
But I'm glad with it at the same time, because this is probably the first time I've put effort in hair and I've never drawn such a long time on one drawing.

This was a BIG challenge for me, as I usual avoid hair, and if there was hair, I would just scribble it.
The challenge might have been too big though haha I started getting lazy at the bottom half of the hair. My main focus would be curly hair, so I decided to draw her. Also because she's blonde which is easier to draw (taking baby steps :))

-B,3B,8B pencils
-2B mechanical pencil

-all kinds of erasers

I LOVE to draw eyes, but I actually never used a reference for my eye drawings.... so here it is :) I didn't copy everything of the reference... I just don't want to :P

Reference used : fav.me/d15zq2c

Yeah, I know, probably the most unoriginal idea ever haha but was good practice :D

I've seen this phrase "Music equals life" lots of times. Music is not for everyone important, but for me it certainly is. One of the reasons is because it's one of my biggest inspiriations, so I decided to draw this and show what my view is on the phrase "music equals life".
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
No reference was used for the face
I used my own headphones as base and also used some google images as base for the guitar, microphone and speaker. Meaning not copies but used as a guide. I didn't use a reference for the hair either so it's not that good :P I finished it in one day working on and off. I guess this is a quick one? for me it is, considiring I'm slow like a snail

Those notes are actually from a real song. The song is called Via Purifico. A beautiful song and I'm trying to play it on the piano now :dummy:

Also, I hate my scanner

Tools:
-B, 3B pencils
-A4 paper
-tissues and blending stumps
-erasers

Hello everyone :wave:
I've been working on this portrait for a long time and i'm happy with the way it has turned out. :D
I've given my best efforts on the skin texture. I think her skin was a real challenge for me.

I'd like to dedicate this drawing to :iconfatehpur: for being so kind and supportive person. :D

I'd also like to thank :icongingershots: for allowing me to use her picture. Her picture was a big inspiration for me.

It may sound odd to you, but I always considered artists like wizards..:) Even before I started drawing, because just like wizards they can create something new and "unreal". Everyone has their own "style and like every artist, you got to practice :giggle:

This is the first time drawing unblended, which is so weird for me because I'm a "fan" of blending. I actually started off with blending but ended up not blend at all because it looked gross..

Also, This is the smallest head I've ever drawn. The head is a bit smaller than a 50 euro cent coin (2cmx1,5cm). I knew this would be a huge challenge for me since I'm not comfortable with drawing small heads.

I don't like the diffrence between the left and right side. It was a bit on purpose to make the right side sketch-ish but now it just really sucks :P Maybe, I'll work more on it later

Tools:
-B, 3B, 8B pencils
-erasers
-A3 paper (the drawing has the width of A3 and the length of A4)

Reference: [link]
The hand was loosely based on my own hand (my apologies for the poorly drawn hand)

Who do you think is going to win?
My bet is on the artist :giggle:

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.

Thank you very much for taking a look
Paula :heart:
