A drawing I made in 2005 of Kirsten Dunst. Part from the very sharp lines and roughly made shadows and can still say I am quite satisfied with.
I used my usual 0.7 mm pencil, and also various other pencils.

A drawing I made in 2005 of Liam Neeson in the movie Rob Roy. I chose to draw him because of his outfit and because I love this movie. When I had finished the drawing I was very satisfied, since I couldn’t do better at that time. When I look at it today I can not say that am satisfied, since I have improved my drawing-skills since then.
I used my usual 0.7 mm pencil, and also various other pencils.

Acey Slade from Murderdolls

A drawing I made in 2007 of Acey Slade from Murderdolls. The reason I chose to draw him was:
First, he is cool! And second, I really love his hands and I basically wanted to see if I could draw them well.
I used my usual 0.7 mm pencil, and also various other pencils.

Bill Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel

Another drawing of Bill Kaulitz that I made in 2007.
I remember that his eyes were hard to draw, since I wanted them to look alive.
I used my usual 0.7 mm pencil, and also various other pencils.
(An extra note is unfortunately that this drawing + one other drawing of Bill Kaulitz, was stolen by a girl on deviantART a few years ago. She had downloaded them and posted them on her page and wrote how and when she made them, terrible!)

Louise Brooks

I got an early Christmas gift from my mother, since I’m going to spend Christmas in France.
I got three beautiful sets of pencils: Cretacolor – Soft Graphite, Charcoal and Monolith, and I couldn’t wait to make my next drawing.
This time I chose Louise Brooks again, because she is my greatest role model. It was the first time I used Monolith and Charcoal pencils.
I drew the contours with my trusty 0.7 mm pencil, the soft shadows with Monolith – 4B, 6B, 9B and the dark shadows with Charcoal Medium pencil.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Helena Bonham Carter in Sweeney Todd

This is my latest drawing, and this times I chose to draw the beautiful Helena Bonham Carter from Tim Burton’s Sweeney Tood.
The drawing took quite some time to finish. The dress was the hardest part to finish, because of all the little details.
I drew the contours with my faithful 0,7 mm pencil and the shadows with a Cretacolor 7B soft graphite pencil.
