Finally done! Phew... This one took the longest out of all my drawings yet.
Focused on the dress rather than on anything else this time.

Thanks for looking. :)



Used:
- 0,5 HB and 0,7 B mechanical pencils
- A4 paper
- paper stumps
- erasers (regular, pencil, kneadable)
- paper tissues
- reference photo
- time: 40+ hours

With a pencil. :D

please...the shading and the sort of pencil?
Reply
:iconsandrasaar:
SandraSaar Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2012  Professional Artist
I mostly use mechanical pencils (0,5 2B), sometimes regular pencils for big dark areas(6-9B).

Shading:
STEP1 - after i draw a bit with a pencil in one area, i smudge it with a paper tissue.
Then repeat step 1 until i feel it looks good.
