WHEW!! It's finally done. I spent lots of hours tonight finishing this up. It's been bugging me that it's taken so long. It should have been done weeks ago. It's just that I've been slacking.
This is a portrait I drew of Kate Beckinsale. I think she's one of the most gorgeous women out there. And I totally dig her accent too
I tried to really take my time with this one particularly on the hair. The hair took me a very long time to do and it's fairly detailed. There are alot of flyaway hairs that needed to be drawn negatively and that takes a while. I am very happy with the way this turned out. I think it's one of my most realistic portraits to date and it was an interesting work to do. I hope you guys like it and I hope it was worth the wait. I know alot of people were waiting for this one

*Edit - The scan that I originally posted has been bugging me because the lights are washed out and it looks blurry. I took some shots with my digital camera and I think the quality is better. Let me know if this is a better version please.
