Carey Mulligan 2 by phoenix132 Carey Mulligan 2 by phoenix132
Finally finished this! It took me way to long, I think I started it on something like the 2nd January... But thankfully I really pleased with how it turned out :) I wanted to draw someone blonde because I don't think the hair on some of my recent drawings has been all that good so I thought I should focus on the hair. Also I usually end up leaving the clothes til last and rushing them or over simplifying them, so I tried to draw them a bit more realistically this time.

- A4 paper
- Graphite pencils: H HB B 2B 3B 4B 6B 8B
- Mechanical pencil
- Cotton buds for blending
- Plastic and kneaded erasers
- Reference used
- Probably somewhere between 15-20 hours, although it could have been more - I lost count!

Thanks :) It took me so long to work out a way of drawing hair that I was happy with, even now it changes with every drawing. For blonde hair I find it easiest to shade first and then sort of draw the hairs on with a rubber :)
