When I used a reference photo...*winks*


When-I-used-a-photo-reference...

So I finally used a reference photo for drawing. Apparently drawing girls out of imagination just results in sad/pensive faces. Of course, the nephews were quick to point out that I wasn't very good at "copying" because I missed out on the strands of hair across her forehead and also clothes! *LOL*


I started with a lightly drawn graphite pencil sketch on hot pressed watercolour paper. I like using a mechanical pencil with HB lead so that I don't need a pencil sharpener. *ahem...lazy bones*


Then I went in with watercolours. 


And finished with coloured pencils for depth...[and to cover up mistakes] and a Posca paint marker for white highlights.

It's beautiful! And she has brown eyes- I've noticed the vast majority, if not all, of your previous girls have blue eyes. Keep trying different reference photos. It would be awesome to see what you can do with different ethnicities and face structures.
