its quite possibly been over a year since i did any sort of portrait drawing...but i guess since they waived copyrights on this contest, i thought i'd just try my hand at it.
As amazing as the other entries are, i didn't even think i should bother uploading this, but i'm really proud of it, and want to show my work. :D
i sat with google images on my phone searching out a source, which, my phone screen is maybe 2"x3". That was my only reference. Spent around 3 1/2 hours on it...graphite and charcoal on bristol. finished drawing is 8 1/2" x 9".
(and yeah, i know the source image is a .gif, which is "animated" but..my phone doesn't play animations...so luckily she sat still while i drew her. ;) ) (5 years and 2520 days ago)
