For all those of my watchers who keep asking me to draw more emotive portraits (of non-Asian people) :heart:

I changed some of the details in this compared to the reference photo - not a lot but I left some out and 'invented' some because I thought it’d look better as a pencil portrait like this. I also wanted to make the contrast heavier, especially around her eyes to give her a more sullen, dark look, and I gave her lips and her neck a completely different, more rough-cut texture.

The original photo and all the rights to it are © the talented FurtiveLungs ([link]). :heart:


OBS: This is NOT edited in some photo-software program. This is a pure scan of the original drawing -it's only worsened by my stupid scanner- and it’s completely touch-free. I really hate when people automatically assume I've used Photoshop (or a similar program) to edit the details and contrast of my drawings. Just a little notion before anyone asks.

Medium; sketching pencils.
Time; forever and a day.
Size; A4 (8.3 inches × 11.7 inches).

I sold the original drawing :)

Brilliant Louisalings! To satisfy my curiosity, could you tell me if you did any artful use of erasure in this drawing?
