Staring at you by AinhoaOrtez Staring at you by AinhoaOrtez
Hi everyone!!

Itīs been a while since the last drawing. I was a bit out of creativity and busy with other kind of things, but suddenly, on my Bday, someone arrived with a wonderful drawing box, full of pencils. At that moment, I didnīt know what to do, but one month later I decided to start something.

It was 4 months since the last drawing and years (yes, years!!) without doing anything just with pencils. So I opened my "inspired images" folder and saw a beautiful photo I had saved just to draw in the right moment. And the moment had come, so I asked for permission and got it!! So I started the drawing. When I had done the half, I stopped, because I was affraid of ruin it, but 2 weeks ago I decided to continue the drawing and finish it. So...here it is!!

For now, Iīm happy with it, but NOT with the photo (I took probably 30 photos but no one was good, so I tried to scan it and it was even worse), because the lips look strange. Anyway, this is the best I could do, but if I can take a better photo, Iīll update it ^_^

I hope you like it!!

Tools:

Pencils (from 2H to 9B)
Kneadable eraser
Mechanical eraser
Mechanical pencil
Tissues
Q-tips
Reference photo

I want to thank :iconfurtivelungs: to let me draw her beautiful photo [link]

Thats amazing. I really love the eyes, they're so piercing. I agree with you about the lips, they do look a little weird but truthfully i didn't notice it until you mentioned it and i had another look. Wonderful as always ^_^
