Graphite drawing of the actress.
Mostly: 5B, 7B, HB and H.
Smooth, white sketch paper

:faint:This took forever! I find it much harder to draw girls than boys.
This will probably be the last celebrity I draw for a while. I have this idea for a graphic novel that I want to illustrate in my style and I have to start sometime.
:iconloveblueplz:



EDIT 26/04/2013
Sooo a troll trying to prove I faked this made the most AWESOME gif that shows the drawing is real:
I really love this thing: [link]
I've been staring at it for ages being critical about where I should've worked harder!

I am pretty sure that I am not going to see a better drawing than this in my life.

:iconrosablu:Thank you!:iconblue-heart-duh: ...but believe me, you will. I love staring at other people's art (it's why I have 1000s of pieces collected in my favourites). The one thing I've learned is that every day I will find something new to take my breath away.

I wonder how you designed the white lines on the hair and lips.did you do it with the special eraser or pencil or something? it's really awesome

Back when I drew this I used poster putty... you know, that sticky clay stuff that you use to stick posters on walls. Just make a fine point and dab it repeatedly on the spot you want to erase. Works pretty good. Now I have an electric eraser from Derwent. It has small erasers in a spinning tip that is really exceptional at erasing lines. Also good for dots.

WIP: True Blood by dreamarian Here is a link with the materials I normally use and the specific shades of graphite are listed in the description. I generally use Faber Castell pencils but the brand really doesn't matter. Good luck.
