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: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!

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 Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby in True Blood), A3, nearly 35h, graphite pencils (2H to 8B).

Doesn't look like the reference at all, it's a pity :/ But I wanted to finish it just for the hair :D

I love True Blood (even though the third season is "bof" as French say), Jessica is not my favourite character but I like her ! And the photo/reference is really beautiful, I loved it so I drew it =)

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]

Hi everyone. I hope you all are doing well. I have been absolutely swamped lately, between my day job and art shows. Not a lot of time for much else. I did manage to find some time to finish a new drawing though. This is a drawing of a girl named Tori. She is also a pencil artist and I've been hanging out with her quite a bit lately. I've really been inspired by her and I hope it shows in the drawing.

12"x18" Arches Hotpressed Watercolor paper
3B, H, B, 7B pencils

approximately 20 hours



Thank you so much for all the e-mails and for visiting my site. :)

Sorry I haven't been very active lately. Been extremely busy. Still drawing though. This is my latest drawing. It is a commission for a customer in Colorado. I don't know what the deal is but I've had lots of work out of Colorado lately. I hope you guys like it and I hope everyone is doing well :)

This is a new drawing done for a client in Maryland. The customer commissioned this portrait as a gift for his wife, it's their daughter, Stella. It's very rare that I finish any drawing in a week's time but I did this one in 4 days. I'm pretty happy with how it came out and I hope my customer is too.

Natalie Portman was so impressive in Black Swan that I simply had to draw her again.

Initially I thought this would take me merely a day or two but I ended up drawing for about 20 hours. At least now I'm pleased with the result.

The size of this drawing is A4 but I cropped it, thought that might look better. What else, drawn on bristol paper using 0.35 mechanical pencil with HB lead and caran d'ache pencil with 7B lead.

I hope you guys like it!

When drawing this I was mainly listening to the Brian Jonestown Massacre's glorious album bravery repetition and noise.

Hey there everyone!

Another Charlize Theron drawing! I started this intending to enter it in :iconjurgendoe: 's Charlize Theron contest. As you might recall, this was like half a year ago :-) So I finally decided to finish it! I like how it turned out although it's kinda boring to look at. Hence the black frame :D.

I'd like to dedicate this to :iconsilentdeath007:, an extremely talented artist from Germany whos most recent drawing just took my breath away [link] Take a look, the hair is just sooo incredibly realistic drawn...

About the drawing:
pencil on 8"x11" A4 bristol paper
have no idea how many hours it took me. not frew, thats for sure :-)

Well, I do hope you like the drawing!
Comment and Critiques are highly welcome!
Have a nice week you all!

This is a commission I did for wonderful :iconsamuraiandthedragon:, thank you very much for the opportunity!

It might have been one of the hardest drawings to work on, partly because of the hair but also because there are so many dark areas and they make digitalizing a pain in the ass. As I am writing this I still don't know which version I should upload. But I think I might for once go with a photo instead of a scan.

As always, this is drawn with mechanical pencils on bristol paper. it took me a really long time, I'm guessing about 40 hours. Size is A4.

Even though it doesn't fit the drawing at all, the soundtrack that goes with it is the album 'a larum' by Johnny Flynn.

Thanks for looking! :heart:

PS: It's Scarlett Johansson
