I finally finished this one. In the end I located a little mistake (right eye proportion)
that makes a huge difference since it is corrected. Some shadings looked off as well,
I tried to adjust them all. Anyway, hope you like it (:

As mentioned this was supposed to be a little exercise.
The point was to work with image sharpness/unsharpness
while trying a different skin technique. The left part of her face should've been a bit more blurry,
I might rework this area. The topknots were almost missing on my reference, so I had to wing it.
Thanks for looking =]

:star:SOLD:star:

:star:See me how I drew her hair on YouTube [link] :star:

Another personal work from me but this time a very special one. I choosed the reference Female Stock 3 by :iconkatanaz-stock: for a very special reason. The reason is my upcoming hair tutorial and this drawing was perfect for this tutorial.

Btw I´ll add also a short video on YouTube where you´ll see me drawing hair ;).

Hope you like it.

Here are some stats for you :).

:bulletred: Time: approx. 25 hrs.
:bulletred: Size is A3. It´s my usual hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchpaper with 190 gsm.
:bulletred: Entirely graphite. Sketched with an 3H and also added some basic shadings with the same pencil. Also used mechanical pencils. 0,9mm HB, 0,7mm HB and 2B, 0,5mm 2B and 0,3mm B.
:bulletred: WIP:

Thanks for looking!

Long time ago since my last upload. Was kinda lazy lately and haven´t drawn very much. But I was finally able to finish my latest pencil portrait of Kirsten Dunst. I worked almost a whole month on this piece and I guess I worked far over 40 hours on this drawing. I wanted to put more quality and less quantity into my drawing and it worked pretty good. I spent a lot of time for her hair this time and the hair part on, and around her shoulder was the most difficult hair I´ve ever drawn. Also I got a lot of problems getting her facial expression right. I revised it countless times.

Here are the stats for you:
Drawn on A3 Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchpaper with 190 gsm.
Used wooden and mechanical pencils for this drawing.
A tissue and a q-tip were used to blend some ares in her face.
A sharpened eraser for som fine hair strands.
Time approx. far over 40 hrs. maybe 50.

Wip can be found here: [link]

Hope you like it.

PS: In the future I´ll post my WIP´s directly into my scrapbook folder so you´ll have to take a look there from time to time if you want to see new WIP´s from me ;).

ENJOY!

Long time ago since my last female portrait here on DA. But this time I did a very special one. I am more than proud to present you this pencil portrait of Jessica Alba. I had a lot of fun with this one. I like these special kind of portraits with a background that blurs into the face of the model and just a part of the face which is in focus. All entirely done with regular and mechanical graphite pencils on A3 Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchpaper with 190 gsm. Time for this approx a week.

Thanks for looking!

I would like to dedicate this drawing to :icongabbyd70: I remember first seeing her drawing --> [link] that I was inspired to one day draw my own Labyrinth portrait ^^ she is also a fantastic artist that is an inspiration to many ^_^


This is a portrait of Jennifer Connelly as Sarah from the movie "Labyrinth"..
It's a movie that I saw when I was really small, and I really liked it. I think many ppl who saw it liked it, like "Never ending Story" its one of those movies that u watch and like ^^


Thanks for all feedback on the WIPs ^^ and congrats to :icondemianzysm: for being the first to correctly guess who it is ^^

Portrait of Catherine Deneuve, bristol paper, 27*27.4cm, nearly 30h, graphite pencils (2H to 8B).

A French actress. I don't really know her, I saw her several times in different movies but she always was older. Though, I admire her beauty and I find this photo quite nice.

Second portrait on bristol, I don't find it as comfortable as the other paper I use for blond hair, but still excellent for the work of the skin (shadows).

The WIP is available here : [link]

Portrait of Marilyn Monroe, bristol, 50x50 cm, graphite pencils (2H to 8B), nearly 35h.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

"I just want to be wonderful" - Marilyn Monroe

----------------------------------------------------------------------

In hommage to Marilyn Monroe. This drawing is larger than others, I wanted to draw this portrait for my room decoration x) And I think the reference I used really looks like the wonderful Marilyn...

Again bristol, I don't know if I'll keep this paper for the next ones, but I have problems with it, above all for the hair. Indeed I find it really unpleasant to detail the hair, but it obviously is excellent for the shading x)

The WIP is available here : [link]

I recently watched Dorian Gray and Ben is just soooo handsome and charismatic .... I had to draw him, this one and I have another lined up too :)

I've been drawing this for ages, little bits here and little bits there, I think I lost the plot for a while.

Also, this started out as graphite, but is now a big mixture of graphite, carbon and pastel :$

Materials:
Graphite Pencils - Wooden and Mechanical (HB to 8B, the 8B is now dead)
Carbon Pencil 6B, also dead
White Pastel
Erasers (I found an eraser that gets rid of 8B pencil!!!!!!! Awesome)
Hahnenuhle Nostalgie A4 paper (that is why the image is kinda grainey, my scanner is not friends with it yet, or maybe its the operator :D )
Time: Not sure about 6-7 hours or so

This was fun to do :)

Before I ramble on about the bits I used I want to say that the very amazing and generous :iconflexdreams: allowed me to use one of his shots as a reference. This one, I have based on one of his photos. The pose and the girl are in this position, but I changed her features and face a little to show anguish .... I hope :eager: The background was just me playing really.

Materials:
A3 Extra Smooth Bristol (bright white .... so thats why the white is WHITE! I lightened it a little after the scan altered it and now its glowing ... okay for lightening, not great for the other areas)
Graphite - Wooden and Mechanical
Graphite Powder
Erasers
Tortillion
Sponge
Masking Fluid
Time: About 12 hours or thereabouts

Print available in my shop - www.etsy.com/shop/BrighteyesAr…

I always appreciate any feedback :hug:

EDIT: The very lovely :iconstacyraven: has coloured my drawing :la: I love what she did, I'm so impressed - :thumb227183603:

This was soooo much fun to do. I did this drawing as a draw-along with the very talented :iconjustabeautifuldream: this is the link to her beautiful drawing please take a look, they have turned out so different .. i love that!

We had already drawn a picture , unknowingly, from the same amazing photographers gallery, so got chatting and decided to do it again and hopefully learn from each other and also see how differently we interpret the image. I have to say I was the one who learnt the most this time ... thank you :)

This is the original photo I was given permission from :iconvalentinakallias: to draw from her gallery. It is truly amazing and please have a look if you haven't already done so. It's very orignial and inspirational.

Details: I think this took me around 7 hours or so to draw, on and off. It may have been a little more or a little less. It's drawn on A4 Bristol Board with graphite (HB, 2B, 4B and 8B). I used tissue, tortillions, erasers (many kinds).

I always appreciate any comments or feedback :hug:

EDIT: Changed the original photo to a scan.

I always try to improve myself and hopefully one day I will be happy with the result of my drawings:D.
