Drama by pbird12 Drama by pbird12
This is drawn from a reference of Gwyneth Paltrow. I thought she looked beautiful in it. I found it on a random google images search. I'm not sure you can tell it is her mind you :confused:

Materials:
Hahnemuhle Nostalgie A4 (I tried this out for the first time on this drawing and I like it very much! Its only 190gsm, which is a shame, but even so, I still like it)
Pencils: H, HB, 2B, 4B and 8B
Erasers
Blue Tac
Ruler (grid)
Around 6-7 hours drawing time.

Print available in my shop - www.etsy.com/shop/BrighteyesAr…

There is a WIP in my scraps if anyone likes to see.

how the hell did you do all that in only 6 hours? lol that's nuts. :highfive:
the clothing and all the fabric is amazing!
i feel like the shadow on her face is a bit close to her nose. it looks okay from this point of view, but when you tilt your head to the right, it looks a bit strange. i doubt anyone will notice that though. it's just me being a weirdo lol.

How long did the fabric take? I guess you just sere extremely clean with it.

pbird12 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I think the fabric took around 4-5 hours, it definately took most of the drawing time :nod:
I'm also in no way clean lol, i'm quite a messy person, i rely on my erasers ... a lot :)
