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.
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.
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.
To match with Arwen, I have drawn Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings, played by Viggo Mortensen. I also made the drawing in 2005.
Even this drawing I made two versions of, the first one looked more like Jesus, so I had to do one more.
I began to draw portraits in 2005 and there were many drawings I failed with in the beginning. To see better my progress, I often drew the same drawing twice.
Even in this drawing I used a 0,7 mm pencil.
This drawing I made in 2005 and even this drawing I made two versions of. The first one looked more like Shannen Doherty and this one looks more like Liv Tyler as Arwen in The Lord of the Rings. I only used a 0,7 mm pencil.
