  1. Haha, finally!
    It took me a while to finish this one, thanks to a testweek and just a lack of patience :(
    But anyway, I did it.

    Scanners are pretty evil to graphite, but I didn't really feel like putting a lot of time into taking a pic of the drawing either!
    Yeah, I know I'm lazy, ghehe..
    But this will give you a proper idea of what the drawing looks in real life, the scan just looks a little more "rough" than the original...

    Tools:
    -Tissue
    -Eyeshadow brush
    -2B pencil
    -6B pencil
    -Kneaded eraser
    It's drawn on ordinary A4 paper!

    Nice job. I like her hair the most. Hair is a really hard thing to get right, but you've managed to do it....and awesomely at that.
    Her lips are like Angie Jolie's....but, they're good!
    And, if that's your scanner being harsh to your work....you have a great scanner, because it's absolutely gorgeous work!
