Audrey Hepburn by ladysofhousen Audrey Hepburn by ladysofhousen
Hi guys! :tighthug:

Yup. All done! :squee: This is literally the fastest I've finished a piece in terms of the number of days taken! Now my back is sore but it was totally worth it. I'm a drawing maniac!

Audrey Hepburn is so beautiful and this was such a delight to draw- mainly due to the angle, the hand and most importantly, the charcoal! :D And with this drawing, I end my very first sketch book! :O

Specifics:
Time taken: Around 5-6 hours.

Stuff I used: Charcoal pencils, kneaded and hard erasers, blending stumps and tissue.

Size of the portrait: Around 37 X 25 cm(squared).

So, what do you think? As always , comments, critique, faves and watches are most appreciated! :D

Thanks!
-S.
:heart:

This is excellent, it looks just like her. The detail on her hands is amazing, I have always found hands very hard to draw! :-)

Thank you! :huggle: Hands are, inherently, hard to draw but I think once you get the hang of it, it's quite fun! :D
