Oh this was a fun one. I did this as a Christmas present for my friend EmmaLee. I wanted to show how naturally beautiful she is. Drawing her eyes was probably my favorite part. It was also a challenge, because I wanted to get the likeness exactly right. In the end, I was really satisfied with it. This was one of the first times I had used something other than mechanical pencils. I used a box of Derwent Graphic pencils for this. I was really nervous at first, but as the drawing prgressed, I started to get more comfortable. Now I'm really hooked on good pencils. I don't think I'm ever going to go back to my old mechanical ones.
