Arwen Graphite by Kalgoras Arwen Graphite by Kalgoras
Finished it finally...(well ok...I stopped working on it, which is the same thing!). Liv Tyler as Arwen from Lord of the Rings, slowly building up the collection!

I've been crawling along doing this for 10-15 mins a day at work, but going to call it here as I'm getting bored hehe :)

Drawing is about 7x10" on A4 Bristol Board using 2H - 8B pencils, with a Mars Lumo to get the black in the hair. It's the first time I've used a Mars Lumo properly as part of the drawing since my Legolas picture and it works well to get the black :)

I used a well known reference pic I got off Google and for those who saw my Works in Progress (In my Scrapbook :) ) I have blurred out the mark on her right cheek which was caused by paper damage (my fault heh...something got stuck to the paper and I tried to remove with a craft knife :P) That's the only editing I've ever done (apart from colour balancing to get rid of the washout from scanning)

Anyway, Enjoy! :)

Gah. That's perfect. The nose highlights. The sclera. Good God, the hair! I can see individual strands and the pattern of her dress.
