I found Candice Swanepoel very randomly, I was actually looking for segment drawing reference images, when this photo of Candice caught my attention. It was one of those moments where I knew I had to draw her :) I’ve since found out she’s a Victoria’s Secret model. So that means I’ve drawn three VS models now – Adriana Lima and Miranda Kerr being the other two. In fact, Miranda Kerr is one of my Inspirational Models. I’m beginning to think I should try and draw all the VS models :)

This drawing was really challenging, mainly because of her hair being completely out of focus. I tried to replicate it, but I was really struggling. I blurred it all with a tissue, that sort of worked, but after looking online, I ended up experimenting with paper stumps for the first time. They’re totally different to use than tortillions, so while I may not be satisfied, I do at least have another tool to play around with now :)
