Olivia - Biro Challenge by pbird12 Olivia - Biro Challenge by pbird12
For the :icondraw-along: September Challenge - I'm giving this one away to whoever wins the poll at the end of the month.

Biro's are hard to draw with .... who came up with that idea? :shakefist:

I think I pretty much lost the likeness to Olivia but I do that sometimes if I forget to look at my reference and get carried away :o Not ideal that.

Materials:
Bristol Board - 7"x8" or thereabouts
Black, Pink and Purple Biro
Pencil sketch to begin with
Time: About 7-8 hours

Oh and biro doesn't scan very well, I might do a photo instead.

Thank you very much to :icondiamoneyes: for the beautiful reference of Olivia [link]

WIP -

Thank you very much for taking a look
Paula :heart:

The colors of those pens are seriously amazing, and you did great for someone not used to pen :clap: I personally think it's the most freeing medium to draw, but I'm pretty sure pencil artists think the other way around

Thank you :heart: I think I'd find it free to sketch with actually, but I don't do that very often and trying to get the tiny details takes some skill and training i think, so more practice needed here for sure :)

Wow! :iconwowplz: I think you did her justice especially considering the medium. So hush! :lmao:

Some lucky winner will be able to proudly hang this on their wall! Oh how jealous I've become. A drawing from my favorite dA artist :shh: inspired by a photo of my favorite dA model shot by my favorite dA photographer. Sounds like a match made in heaven!

Had I been aware of this contest sooner the precious would be all mine! :evillaugh: :) Oh well, I'll one day finish my Olivia drawing.... it just won't be the same. :P

haha I'm not trying to guilt trip you... promise. :lol: You can send me the next one. :rofl: :P

Hey, my internet router decided to take a dump on me twice in under a week. Sorry for my absence. Thankfully the internet provider hooked me up with another model to replace the old one that is now discontinued. Guess they were junk. :lmao: So from Wednesday night until now I didn't have internet. :(

I've been through awful times. It will take a while before I can restart submitting drawings and everything, you know, make a proper comeback. But I'm trying to at least keep up with my messages.

Thank you very much for everything Paula! :hug:
