Kate Beckinsale portrait

"Win a free graphite drawing from me for free"
For more details visit my page: [link]

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.

tools:

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.

thanks for your great support and kind comments

hope you like:)

can you please teach me how to draw real people, i know you are probably very busy, and i know it takes practice, but i am a really good drawer, just not as good at realism, if you could just take a few minutes of your time to tell me how (in traditional drawing) how you shade and make the face proportional, i would appreciate it more than you could ever know! just any tips you can provide... i especially need help on hair

really appreciate your comments:).

i've written a small guide on how I draw and what tools I use to make my portraits.hope this help you a bit.

[link]

Drawing portraits takes a lot of patience and patience is the absolute key for making a great portrait.also need to have a very good contrast ratio between black and white shades because the contrast gives you the realistic look.also a lot of practice.

let me know if you have any questions.I'll be glad to help you out.

this is very good and i echo the comments made about how attractive she is :D
Personally, i like the stylizing of the hair and the way you did the eyes, it stops it from just being an amazing pencil sketch from photos and takes it somewhere else, more personally creative, which i think is a good thing :)
