Rachel Mcadams by powerman5thousand Rachel Mcadams by powerman5thousand
Saw her in wedding crashers a little while back and thought she was very pretty. So, of course I have to try and draw a portrait of her which I think turned out really well.

2h,f,b, and 3b pencils

I love how you have the proportions so perfect. Do you have any tips on how you got them that way?

It's gorgeous and fun. She looks like she's about to laugh, you've really captured her spirit.
I first noticed her in "The Notebook" where she is featured,
I couldn't take my eyes off of her,
she's more than beautiful, she's captivating.
Here especially, you've captured her delightfulness ... even a bit mischievous
(as was her character in 'The Notebook")
What splendid portraiture.

BTW (i first saw her in a less appealing role, as a stereotyped bitchy popular "blonde haired" beauty, and i never looked twice! The other movie is a ridiculous, but funny one called "Hot Chick"

Drawings usually take me about 8 hours+. I could probably do them faster but I always sit in front of the tv to keep my mind a bit active, but it's also distracting.

Thanks for the compliments

gosh thats a long time but you can see the time and effort you give your pics, and i totally understand the multi tasking thing, when i do my paintings im on msn (in 2 languages) and surfin the inter-web, to minimise my 'puter time. is it 8 hours straight?

:iconpowerman5thousand:
powerman5thousand Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No, I couldn't do it straight through, it would drive me mad. It's usually spread over a couple days or a week.

ah good, woulda been freaked otherwise. i spent about 6 hours straight on a painting i did, i had school the next day too so yeah, i was a zombie. i couldnt spend that much time on a pencil drawing though, if i cant do it less than 2 hours than i cant do it :P. have you ever drawn a car? they are so hard

I tried drawing cars when I was younger, but mostly drew animals. I was never good at drawing cars. Now I draw mostly people(if not all).

The longest I've ever drawn straight was probably no more than 3 hours.

i drew dinosaurs and titanic lol. i avoided people at all costs until extremely recently. now i dont draw except on special ocassions. this car [link] i drew for a mate so i didnt have to buy him anything, and i did a thorny devil for another friend, they were both returning back to their home countries. um how often do you draw, do you just decide every now and then 'hey i want to draw this or that'?
