I saw this image of Cheryl Cole on Google and instantly thought, I need to draw her! I always struggling with darks at the time, so that was the main reason why I picked this image. This was at the start of 2014, when I started to really push myself to take my tone darker. There was a point during this drawing where I just said to myself, sod this, it’s time you risk ruining the drawing … and with that, I picked up my 4B pencil and just went nuts with the darkness on her face :) I learnt a lot during this drawing, and I loved doing her outfit. I always used to hate doing clothes, but lately I’ve started forcing myself to pay more attention to them, and now I’m enjoying the challenge of drawing clothes.
