GIRL WITH LONG LASHES
This Gorgeous Girl was sat on my drawing board for a fair few weeks, after having initially been hit with one of those, ‘I have to draw her’ moments; I have no idea who she is though. The reference image on google links to the site – GN-Salon – who I’ve contacted, asking if they knew her name, but as yet they haven’t replied. So for now, she’ll be known as … the GIRL WITH LONG LASHES; nameless, like the Mysterious SEXY SANTA I previously drew :)
Technically, the hardest thing about this drawing was trying to work out how to do her hair. Being so light, I found it difficult to match the tones, as I kept wanting to go darker than what I was seeing. It became like a juggling act, darker, lighter, lighter, darker … and with such light tones, it was a bit of a challenge to create a dense, layered look. Still, doing all the crazy loose white hairs at the end was fun, I just went mad with my Mono Zero Eraser Pen :)
I enjoyed this drawing so much. In fact, during the last few hours I started crying. I was so happy, I started crying … I’ve never experienced that before while creating art; was a beautiful experience.
