This is finally in the hands of my hairdresser and is a portrait of her daughter who has aged by a year in the time itís taken me to complete this.

I wonít state my true feelings here on what I feel about the quality of this as I know Iíll be nagged by certain members on here but suffice to say Iím glad itís now finished.

The fur jacket texture was a new one for me and I hope itís recognisable for what it is.

Iíd like to thank *CaroleHumphreys and =pbird12 both of whom were kind enough to critique this before I completed it and pointed many improvement I could make to it which I hope Iíve pulled off.

Approximate time: 70 hours due to many changes and adjustments.


A3 Winsor & Newton Bristol Board.
2H through to 6B Staedtler Mars Lumograph
Various mechanical pencils 0.3 & 0.5
Blu-Tack and Tombow Mono for erasing
Hand cut template for the oval shape.

No worries, I'm not on nearly as often as I used to be and get way behind on my comments but many thanks all the same.:happybounce:

I'm glad to see you've posted a new drawing. It's outstanding, especially her hair and the fur! I'm sure I would feel their textures if I touched the screen :giggle: And it's A3! Oh my, I don't wonder why it took so much time, but it paid off :aww:

Amazing work! :jawdrop:
The hair and the fur is to die for, the detail there is crazy and amazing. Really impressive.
