W.I.P. Jess by Per-Svanstrom W.I.P. Jess by Per-Svanstrom
Here is a part of what I'm working on right now.

I started this a couple of weeks a go. I want to make a really soft drawing of my favorite girl Jessica Alba.

Many of you have probably seen the picture I'm drawing.

I have had big problems with proportions lately,, I've been too impatient, and for the first time I think I have to throw a drawing in the trash.
I'm talking about the Keira drawing I started last week. So I'm sorry you Keira fans,, I don't think I will post a Keira drawing anytime soon. I will try to save it, but I don't think I will be able to. ;)

So now I'm using Jessica who's face I know much better, to boost my confidence.

Size: 35x45 cm ( this scan shows 21x30cm)

Graphite pencils on paper

For a second I thought U R going to throw Jessica away O.o
But then- what kind of a person would do that.
Can't wait to see it finished. Wish U to make her a portret form live some day ;)

I know what you mean regarding proportions, some days they just dont seem to work and you can end up ruining whatever you're doing.
But this one is looking very good so far :aww:

Keira started of good, but I messed it up big!.. It looks like a different person now. :P looks really wierd :)

yes I know what u mean, I think it comes down to having a good day, sometimes everything just falls into place, and other times u end up working overtime on a certain area and it still doesn't look quite rite.. ^^

Drawing can be very Frustrating at times :D

That's why I like drawing in photoshop. If I mess up big, I can just fix it, or if I start drawing something too big, I just make it smaller. I'd like to think there is still a amount of skill involved though. ;)
