Last weekend I was deleting stuff off my TiVo box, and I started up a film called Mysterious Skin. I was gonna delete it, but I ended up watching it all, it was such a good film! While watching, this one actress came on, it was Michelle Trachtenberg, and I decided right there and then, she would be my next drawing :) I struggled so much trying to do her hair as she’s got it in a right mess lol I also spent all week looking forward to drawing her eyes, as I’ve been learning about drawing eyelashes, and then I got over excited and made her eyelashes too big, doh! Practice Practice Practice!!!
