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 :drool: 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 :D

12"x18" Fabriano Hotpress
3B, B, 2H, 5H pencils
blending stumps and tissue for blending
Around 40 hours

*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.

It's so amazing but something is bothering me and I just don't know what it is.
But it looks very like Kate and her eyes are amazing!

Love Kate Beckinsale, though for some reason I haven't done a propper pic of her; TONS of quick sketches, but nothing good like this one =) great blending, and her lips look awesome.

I'm pretty sure I've stumbled into your gallery before, maybe one of the Carrie Underwood pics? idk. but I saw this drawing elsewhere, and i thought I recognized it. Unfortunately, some chick is claiming it as her own [link]

I was once looking for some pencil drawings online and I landed on your website. and omg ur amazing.Then after reading your bio, i saw that ur a fan of armin mersmann and since u suggested to have a look at his website, i was stunned.

Hopefully i can make my drawings as realistic as both of you.

Amazing ;)
