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!
