Now that I’m back and finally settled in Calgary, I’ll try my best to post more often. So here’s a sketch that I did when I was in Rankin.
I never had the chance to finish it because of the move but I believe the model was from a Seventeen magazine, I’m not too sure. I no longer have the reference photo of this model so I don’t think I’ll be able to finish it any time soon.
I haven’t done a pencil drawing for about ten years now, pretty long time huh? But I must say I did pretty good job for a person who hasn’t done a one in a long time.
I drew her hair in the very low light while watching a movie, that’s why the hair doesn’t look very realistic. I had to use a Q-tip to blend because I couldn’t find my blending tool at that time and a kneaded eraser to do the highlights on the face, lips, and parts of her hair. If I had known that you could use an eraser to do highlilghts when I was younger I think drawing portraits would have been a lot easier.
