Nurse and self taught artist.

Being creative is one of my favourite things in the world. I love to draw, mostly realistic graphite pencil portraits of women/celebrities, don't ask me why, probably more fun at this stage. I started taking this hobby seriously in 2012. I bought all the important materials and began my first official drawing. I wanted to surprise my father when I found one of his childhood photos. The reaction of others is maybe the most rewarding to me.
I really appreciate it if you guys would give me comments on my deviations. That way I know what to work on, so I can become better and deliver realistic artwork in the future. I'm a true perfectionist and will never be (totally) satisfied with results. That's something I'll be working on. The most important thing to me though is to have a good time while drawing, wondering why the person you draw intrigues you so much and seeing graphite come to life on paper.

Create your own magic moments and enjoy every second of it.
Mais les yeux sont aveugles. Il faut chercher avec le cœur.



At this time the Kristen Stewart portrait is pretty much finished, except her hair and some details. I keep telling myself that I musn't finish it in a rush, so I won't with this one. Each part of the drawing is equally important!
When I would think that I can improvise with her hair, it could and would seriously reduce the overall quality.

Little SPOILER ALERT :oopsies: ... I think I'm going to draw my next piece upside down.
It should make everything easier because your brain does not trick you that fast to see shapes (you want to see in a face). My brain has to see everything as abstract shapes! Very interesting to me.

So, no WIP number IV. To keep it exciting Oops . I think somewhere next week I'll post the finished piece. So happy that I find my last work, my best work.
