Hello everyone. Long time ago since my last upload. Being busy all the time but I'm glad I was able to finish my picture of Imogen Poots as Arianne recently. And now here it is.
This is the actress Imogen Poots who played the witch Arianne in the movie Centurion alongside with Michael Fassbender who is also known as Magneto from the last X-men movie if it makes him a bit more familliar to you.
The drawing itself was completely done with graphite pencils on A2 Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchpaper. The thin white hair strands were all erased. From start to finish this one took me a bit over 2 months to finish but I worked often only occasionally on it.
I was invited to be part of a fantastic charity venture here on dA. Artist for a Cure is a collaboration of 12 artists who are creating a piece of work to be published in a 2013 calendar. All proceeds from the calendar will go towards Cancer Research. Something very close to my heart. To be able to contribute towards this coming years calendar has made me really happy All details of AFC can be found here - artistsforacure.deviantart.com…
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 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 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' 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 ->
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.

Made a mess of this one To hard on the paper was lifting a layer of the paper up it's not happened before , don't know if the paper was damp, might try to do it again , spent alot of time on it thought I'd just put it up anyway. oh its mostly on the left side under the eye, was still to put white highlights in the hair
Colour Pencils on medium cartridge paper, I blended this one using kitchen paper towel very lightly dipped in solvent , then once it was dry did the highlights in hair with a pencil rubber then went over the darker shades , then the scary bit went over most of it with a light cream and white pencil to give it that misty look . From a picture Do you ever wonder why? by
Drawn for the"Think Pink Contest" Hosted by [link]
The contest is held annually for breast cancer awareness. I decided to draw my buddy Karen with her mother in the background. Sadly Karen's mom died of breast cancer.
Drawn with watercolor pencils (I don't paint with them) on A4 cartridge paper.
This was the most technically infuriating drawing I've done in a long time. The color of the pencils I chose were perfect but their textures were terrible! That warm gray in the background was hopeless to get even. Once the contest is over I intend to rework it with another pencil. The pink, on the other hand went on like a dream but it refused to blend with the black. If it wasn't for a good cause I would not have finished it.
