I was practicing my pencil skills yesterday. It is much needed, I have neglected it since forever and really lost touch with being able to create smooth shadows and portrait-likeness. But practice makes perfect, so a couple more of these, and hopefully I’ll be on top of my mage again.
My model was Daenerys Targaryen from the GoT, but wanted her to look a little more grown up and a little more troubled. Not very portrait-like, but am still quite happy with the result. Unfortunately, the scanner takes away some of the quality.
