A Moment... by Wicked-Illusion A Moment... by Wicked-Illusion
Something different this time (I mentioned this summer is all about experimenting with various stuff). This was supposed to be easy and simple, but it was everything but that. I messed around with some parts a little bit too much, did really lousy job on some, had a few frustrating moments, rushed it on the end and I'm not all too happy with the result, but I'm happy it's finished. I'll just blame the heat for everything. :D We're on over 35C again. -.- After so many celebrity/fanart drawings in a row, this time I didn't bother catching the likeness, it wasn't important, especially because I wouldn't know how her lips look like without the piercing anyway. :)

Thought I'd finally try out that Lana Bristol smooth paper I don't plan to use more than just couple of times a year - definitely not big fan of the smooth paper. This drawing and the next one on this paper will use as sort of a preparation for a portrait of an actress I like and which is quite, lets call it texture-less, but detailed and smooth and thus suitable for it. It won't kill me drawing something smooth from time to time...hope so. ;)

The next is my ATC trade. Picked something quite complex (actually, I put something complex together to draw) so fingers crossed I'm able to pull it off. :pray:

Many thanks to ~AliceInUnderland for the amazing ref aliceinunderland.deviantart.co… :glomp:

Tools used:

:liquisoft: A4 Lana Bristol smooth paper
:liquisoft: 0.5 2B, HB and 0.3 HB mechanical pencils
:liquisoft: H, 2B, 5B regular pencils
:liquisoft: kneaded and stick eraser
:liquisoft: a finger for occasional skin blending (Never blend with your fingers :blahblah:! I say: go for it, but only if you know the risks and exactly what you're doing!)

Thank you! Oh, and now when we were talking about skins...I noticed dA removed the automatic fav and comment buttons which could have been found under each journal, which means I need to edit that skin and add comment link, otherwise no one will be able to comment...Crap. Please re-install the skin later when I update it to add it so people can comment on your entry.

This is gorgeous! :heart: It looks so realistic! The lips, the hair, the tears (so subtle, but so beautiful)... and is that a teeny-tiny bit of smudged mascara?
I love it! Instant :+fav:!
