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!)
:liquisoft: ref picture

Simple but nice. It reminds me of a woman who just finished rinsing her hair :D
