Portrait of Melissa

Hi guys. I put my nose to the gridstone the past few days and finished something new. It's rare for me to finish a drawing in just a few days. This is a portrait of my beautiful girlfriend, Melissa. I did this drawing as a practice piece. I love drawing on toned paper like this and it was a nice change of pace from commission works. I referenced a picture that I took of her from the other day when she was playing Guitar Hero..lol. She doesn't like it when I take pictures of her so I did it when she was preoccupied with something else. I do want to do many more drawings of her so I will work on getting more pictures to work from. :) 12"x18" Strathmore 500 series (tinted) 3B, H, B, 7B pencils q-tips and tissue for blending 15 hours www.dueysdrawings.com
