Melanie by friedChicken365 Melanie by friedChicken365
I decided to take a break from drawing famous people and instead decided to draw a friend of mine (guess what her name is lol). I have to admit, it was weird drawing someone that I know, since I knew I had to get it absolutely perfect. After all, she does look at her face every day. But she ended up really liking it so it's all good.

Materials:
Bristol Recycled Paper 6 x 4.5 in
Pencils: Mechanical 0.7mm HB and 2B, Wooden 2H and 4B
Cheap Colored Pencils (for the eyes)
Magic Rub Eraser

wOOt! :O

You do good portraits bud. The blue eyes amidst all the other shades of graphite is a nice touch.
