It’s been a hell of a long time since I last did a detailed drawing – five years in fact. During that time I’ve seen countless amazing pieces uploaded to DeviantArt by different artists. Finally last week, I decided to try it out for myself.
Now, I’m not particularly a fan of Lady GaGa, but the photo that I used as reference had a great pose. Unfortunately what I didn’t realise was how bad a choice it was! Light, messy hair, along with light smooth skin makes for an extremely hard drawing.
This piece was done on A3 150gsm paper, non-smooth, which is why the shading looks so rough. I have bought Bristol Board paper now, so hopefully my next drawing will turn out better :)
