Blanca by CallieFink Blanca by CallieFink
Grainy scanner is grainy. And yes I do realize that the hand is fail. That's because I saved the hand for last and the paper was so smudged by the time I got to it, I couldn't even erase the blotches on it. Whatever.

My friend Blanca asked me to draw a portrait of her, so here's my result. :D

I spilled red paint(out of all the colors... it had to be RED?!) on the upper right hand corner of it on Monday, but today I was able to fix it with white paint and darken the rest that spilled on the hair with just pencils. Thank God for improvisations.

Took 3 long weeks of work, mostly because I did this entirely at school.

Graphite on Bristol board 8x11"
Used: HB(0.5), 6B(lead holder), Dynagraph(N3 and N4)
Kneaded eraser
Tissue
Blending stump

Thanks!

Please, do not crop/copy/trace/edit/redistribute.

The hand is not a fail in my opinion. :) I think it's lovely. The hair is detailed fantastically.
