Blue Butterflies by ladysofhousen Blue Butterflies by ladysofhousen
Hi guys! :tighthug:

Yup. Finished this right now! :la: Here's my entry for this month's :icondraw-along: challenge in charcoal! The reference is a beautiful photograph by :iconnatashasmithphoto: and can be found here: [link]

I honestly never thought charcoal could be this much fun to work with- especially with all this hair! Oh but I was so wrong! :D

Specifics:
Time taken: Around 10-11 hours.

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

Size of the portrait: Around 37.5 X 27.3 cm(squared)

WIPs: [link]

So, what do you think? Do let me know! Comments, critique, faves and watches are always much appreciated! :nod:

Thanks!
-S.
:heart:

Ahaha if there's one thing drawing has taught me, it is that right when you're about to give up is when new techniques pop into your head! :D
