Less is More Creed and a Smurf

Well I think I am done. I always reach a point on a drawing where I have to step back and realize if I do too much more I will destroy the beauty I created. Hence the less is more creed, it does hold true more often than not. Still I am not going to hold my breath, I don’t think I could pull off the smurf look. Besides its my customer who makes the final call so I am hoping my customer likes it as much as I do. Once its approved I will sign it and I will post one final update on Renna. I will try to move through my process and provide some tips on drawing a portrait and/or working with this particular media.

      Thank you Aaron… I am going to pick up on the cat portrait I was working on before this one and following with more personal work. I hope to have another commission coming soon.

    Really beautiful. I love most of all her hairs and her dress, but everything else is also very nice and life like. By the way can I ask what pencils you have used for this drawing? My charcoal pencils are really harsh (cretacolor) and it’s really difficult to create a sharp point on them.
