Finally finished this! It took me way to long, I think I started it on something like the 2nd January... But thankfully I really pleased with how it turned out :) I wanted to draw someone blonde because I don't think the hair on some of my recent drawings has been all that good so I thought I should focus on the hair. Also I usually end up leaving the clothes til last and rushing them or over simplifying them, so I tried to draw them a bit more realistically this time.

- A4 paper
- Graphite pencils: H HB B 2B 3B 4B 6B 8B
- Mechanical pencil
- Cotton buds for blending
- Plastic and kneaded erasers
- Reference used
- Probably somewhere between 15-20 hours, although it could have been more - I lost count!

Imagine, if you will, another place and time.

A most time consuming drawing that was a challenge to say the least. With so many other drawings waiting to be done, I couldn't move on until this was finished. Finally after about 3 weeks on and off, it's done.
Once again it's such a crap photo :(
