Pink Paradise by pbird12 Pink Paradise by pbird12
This is a drawing of the very beautiful Kelly Eden :iconkellyeden: Her picture has been the reference for the first months project of our new group :icondraw-along:
Reference -

I decided not to draw the whole image and just took a part of it to focus on, but the My Little Ponies on her corset were too cute to leave out, so there they are :giggle:

Materials:
A4 Mellotex
Graphite (H, HB, B, 4B and 8B)
Pink Faber Watercolour pencil unwatered
Eraser
Soft brush
Time: I think around 20-22 hours

The whole thing seems to have a bit of a pink tint to it, i dont know why, I think its the work of my scanner :shrug:

Thank you for looking :heart:

There are some WIPs here if anyone likes these things -

EDIT: I got some advice from someone who thought the pink coloured parts could do with a bit of brightening. I've played around a little bit again as its a wee bit brighter in real life. So, the pink now looks like it does on paper but the tint over everything, i dont know why its there and dont know how to get rid of it :(

LOVE that you put some colour in it(even though I'm very fond of b&w), and I LOVE the background you made. The drawing is badass and cute, stong and girly. Again, amazing job with the hair!!

:wave: No I didn't, not on this one it's all unblended except the eyes and lips and the little ponies :)

I love this! It's so well done. I really really like the subtle, soft pink in it - and what you did with the ponies was great! Lovey way to include them. Nice work :D

Wow Paula, she looks amazing!!
I love the eyes, they are so shiny. You drew them beautifully.
And you also included the ponies! They are so cute especially the sitting one.
When I look at it it's so clear that you have drawn it, the whole thing screams Paula. I really like it.
Oh and I'm no friend of pink, but here it fits perfectly. :D
Sorry for the late comment

There is nothing wrong with feeling like a big kid. ;)

It's going ok I guess. I wasn't really good over the past two weeks but it's better now.
How are you doing?

This is great...love your tranference of her basque and incorporating it into the background. Nice idea...
Eyes are excellent and the subtle pink gives it that edge...
