LANA DEL REY
I have to be honest, I had never heard of Lana Del Rey until I saw a drawing Charlzton had done of her on Deviantart. A Google search later, and I knew she was gonna be the next girl I would draw. I nearly didn’t draw this particular image, I had 2 images of Lana Del Rey I really wanted to draw, and I had decided to do the other one then at the very last minute picked this one instead lol I just loved so much the look and feel of her expression in the photo, and I hope I managed to capture that. I drew the line art 100% upside down, which was the first time I’ve done that and I think it helped me a lot. I also made her lips a bit more shiny then they were in the photo :)
Mad thing is, Lana Del Rey sings one of my favourite trance tunes – Young and Beautiful and I never knew until researching her :)
“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
