This is my first serious sketch. If I ever become a professional, this will be my first piece. I drew this out of pure boredom because I wanted to see if I was any good at sketching. He he, well, I guess I am. The dark areas are shadows. Believe me when I say some people thought it was hair and I am not kidding. This is Gillian Anderson, (Scully from the X-Files), and she is standing in front of some sort of exercise machine. The light is hitting her from the side causing the shadows (Some people didn't realize that either). This was done with a single, ordinary pencil and a pop-on eraser. It took me about 6 hours to draw. Obviously, I drew it while looking at my computer screen, as I would not have access to her in real life.
