Commissioned work for a website. :)

For this one I used 3H and 4B mechanical pencils, vellum bristol paper, kneaded eraser, eraser pencil, and tissues for some blending. I combined a couple different refs for the face and drew the hair from memory. I also added the effect on instagram ;) (My name there is artworkbygabrielle)

Thanks for taking a look! :D

wow, this is really beautiful! :w00t:
Taking a look though your gallery now..
Also, I've got some charcoal pencils for Christmas.. and toned paper. i've never used charcoal in my life, and am learning to draw. Would it be ok for me to try copy this portrait in my new sketchbook, see how to draw portraits? Also, if I do, could I post it in my gallery here, for you to see, and maybe comment on it? Of course I'd link back to you here.

You should do a tutorial on drawing hair like that! I thought it was a photograph for a second!

not usually. just layers of clean strokes back and forth, usually in the same direction. Thank you!
