During the week I decided I was gonna try and draw a girl with her eyes closed, so I googled closed eyes and while this girl didn’t have her eyes closed, she literally popped off the screen! I said to myself, sod the closed eyes look, I’m drawing this girl at the weekend lol
Adriana Lima is one of three Victora’s Secret Models that I’ve drawn. Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel being the other two. I also drew Adriana Lima again a year or so after this one :) I was still struggling with going darker when doing this drawing, and took to using 4B leads when I thought it’s a 2B, just to try and force myself to go darker. A little trick that still works till this day :)
“Be sure what you want and be sure about yourself.“

“Who are you?
Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?
I have. I am fucking crazy.
But I am free.” – Lana Del Rey
“A scar indicates that something is missing. You lost something important, and there’s a hole in your heart. Having that empty hole can lead to anger, hate, despair, or. . .it can make you reach for the sky” – Kurasaki Fuuko, Accel World
