finally done.I would think atleast 50 hours went into this.
I've modified the eye's from the reference pic and find that making these bright eye's, really stands out a lot more specially with the dark make up.I'm very happy how the eye's turn out.I think they really get you strait because of the modification.I also made a stylize hair style, its not quite real but it gives a nice feel.I guess its my own personal touch to the piece
The more I go with drawing realism's the more it feels like I'm going to change my style which I think is really important.
erase stick, brushes, Qtips, rubber eraser.
mechanical pencil mm3, mm5, mm7 and some original derwent pencils.
lead grades from h6 to b9
this time I used a strathmore serie 300 ultra smooth but I still prefer the ultra smooth fabriano hotpress watercolor paper.I find that it gives a better result within the time space on a drawing but that's my personal taste.
