Another drawing from a reference in :iconflex-flex: gallery. Please have a look if you like unique and beautiful photography, he's very inspiring!

Materials:
A4 Extra Smooth Bristol
Graphite (HB, B, 4B)
Erasers
Tissue
Tortillions
Caran D'Ache Pablos
Acrylic
Time: Somewhere around 12-14 Hours

I suck at drawing hair and I chose this reference not only because I love the photo but I had to try harder with the hair. I dont know what it is, I just cant do it very well, but this one is better than most ... hurrah :dance:
I changed the butterfly from the reference image just so it would have a little body.

You get more and more brilliant by each drawing! this one is one of my favourite! the colours are perfect, and I'm in love with all the details and just the composition in general! The drawing is better than the reference in my opinion
The only thing that could make this better is if you added more texture to the skin. I know the reference is photoshopped so that the skin is smooth but I think it would have given a better impact if you had added some pores. but this really is a wonderful piece of art!

Oh and you are brilliant at drawing hair! I wish I could draw hair like you do:love:

Aw thank you for taking the time to write a great comment and fave :hug:

Yeah, she is a bit polished, I agree on the skin texture thing. Maybe i'll draw some men soon, they have better skin for texture for sure :) I feel a Dean draw soon :woohoo:

I have a drawing to submit (the draw along one) soon and the hair practice is definately paying off :dance:

I know it's hard to draw skin texture, and I never manage to do it myself, but I've seen that you are!:D
YES! do a Dean drawing! :la: just try not to drool on it:O
