Hayley Westenra

18 Favourites
Drawn for a contest held by :iconportraitpencilart: -- Favourite artist/musician

She doesn't look like her usual self in the reference, probably mostly because of the hair. Anyway, I thought the reference was quite a beautiful photo. I changed some things while drawing, though.

I don't really have one favourite musician, but Hayley is probably my favourite singer. You can hear some of her songs here:

Time To Say Goodbye
Wuthering Heights

Technical details:
Mechanical HB and 2B pencils, regular 4B and 6B pencils.
Kneaded eraser, pencil eraser.
Tissue and cotton swabs for blending.

That's an awesome drawing, both because of the technique and because she's one of my preferred artists as well.
I absolutely love her voice ^_^

Wow!! Just... I'm amazed at the amount of detail you can do with pencils. I never saw that kind of half-transparent, not-focused appearance done like that before.
