I finally finished this drawing! I’m pretty happy with how it turned out in the end. I really took my time with this one and I got to try out a lot of different techniques and tools that I’ve never used before. I apologize for the huge shadow at the top, the graphite is really reflective in some spots (especially the hair and beneath the chin) and it was practically impossible to find lighting in the house that wouldn’t bring out the shine.
I randomly found the reference photo that I used for this on this website. It’s an absolutely stunning picture, which immediately made me want to draw it as best I could.
ope you all had a good weekend. xx
