Wolffs carbon pencil, prismacolor ebony pencil, 2b mechanical pencil and smudger, also white posca pen for the highlights. I spent 9 hours on this non stop, not gonna be doing that again in a hurry! :/
Credit for the reference photo goes to a very good photographer, go check out his work! Reference pic is
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
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
Emma Watson - Prismacolor pencil on Strathmore. Scan of the piece I posted as a photograph of this drawing in progress. Wish the good flatbed scanner was available - I think I prefer the photo of the piece to this scan, actually.
Photo of drawing. I call this Kate Winslet “inspired” as I was all sorts of distracted while working on this, and her likeness just sort of drifted away in the continual scribbling. Prismacolor pencil on Strathmore. And because I am always asked these questions, I used purples and warm and cool grays (which give it the odd, cold, marble-like look), and no, the pencils shown are not all the colors I used. Enjoy!
