For the love of God. I am DONE. :dalove:

...Holy balls. Daily Deviation...

Oh my, my 16th birthday is coming up in a month and a half, and this was the first big drawing I had finished in about 5 months time! I should get to work on more stuff before July rolls around...

A big shout out to all of those dedicated watchers who kept up with this WIP. This took in total about 5 months, probably 80+ hours of work. I've never spent this long on a single drawing before, and I'm just kind of shocked that I actually finished it at this point.

This picture was drawn from the awesome gallery of :iconmalvina-frolova:, and here is the picture I referenced off of:… Check out the rest of her gallery, it is beautiful! :heart: The model of the photo is the gorgeous :iconbloodstonished: !!

Ah, success.

Graphite on Bristol board 19x19"

Also, this is my other big drawing I did for my amazing friend Vlad! I did his portrait in January, then started to work on the Freckles drawing! =>…

Here is a picture of me holding the drawing, so you can see how big it is! Lol! =>

Thank you sooooo much for all of your comments/faves on this! I logged onto dA and I had like 1,700 messages overnight!! I appreciate this support so much, and I'll try to reply to all of your comments! :hug: :dalove:

Ok guys I'm not gonna submit a print of this cause it's not my original photo, I just drew it. The photo itself is not copyright to me so i will not sell something that is not originally mine.

For some info on how I drew it and some close ups: :thumb174035562:

Wait a sec... 2010, your 16th.....
Holy crap monger. You're about the same age as me, then, just a bit older now, I think. And this.... Drawing. Sixteen. What. Just. WHAT. I am not worthy. I am a peon. Your work is so freaking incredible. All of it. :worship: Your skill level... I have no words. None.

I was extremely impressed, but it was when you mentioned your 16th birthday coming up that killed me. Mind=blown to bits and self-esteem=microscopic shreds. haha I hope this comment doesn't sound bitter xD it's just that you're too amazing and I can't

Your work makes me ashamed to even call myself an artist. Your devotion and pure talent is indescribable.
Pencil-of-Power Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
So I opened up the reference picture and then I kept switching the tabs between your drawing and the photo. I was having the time of my life. XD
I am wondering though: How did you manage to scan such a huge picture?
CallieFink Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I scanned it into 9 different pieces and just photoshopped the layers together so there wouldn't be any lines from the different chunks of the picture pieces haha
CasheeFoo Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
I thought this is a photo... I don't believe. I admire you for every detail :heart:

This is incredible! I recently(ish) did a portrait with freckles and I couldn't quite get the hang of it, what you've done here is absolutely incredible. the eyes, the lips, the clothing, the hair, the fingers, how you've drawn the focus so's all amazing! :D well deserved of a DD! :)
