Facial Study Female

This isn’t the first time I’ve tried to draw this young model. I don’t recall her name or I’d offer it. The reference image is from a set of model test images I created when I had my photo studio in Las Vegas back in the early 1990’s. This time I think I rendered a pretty good resemblance of the reference. I used Procreate with my favorite charcoal pack and substrate. Prints Available

Facial Study, young female

This isn’t the first time I’ve tried to draw this young model. I don’t recall her name or I’d offer it. The reference image is from a set of model test images I created when I had my photo studio in Las Vegas back in the early 1990’s. This time I think I rendered a pretty good resemblance of the reference. I used Procreate with my favorite charcoal pack and substrate.

As I said, I struggled with multiple attempts at working this model into a nice rendering but I feel I have a successful attempt with this effort. I used a mixture of enveloping and size sight techniques to accomplish this one.

This took approximately 7 and a half hours and over 11k brush strokes. I will include a short video of the build.
