It's been awhile since I last shared some artworks here due to my hectic schedule in preparation for the upcoming class opening.

I already completed my paperworks few days ago so I got some free time today and since I really missed drawing, I decided to just spend my day doing some new artwork. It's still in process but I'm really excited to share it with you guys. Hope you'll like it ☺

The reference model I used in this portrait is Ms. Julia Barretto, one of the most beautiful and talented actress/model here in the Philippines.

Materials used in the portrait are the following:

  • Koh-i-noor colored pencil

  • 2B Mechanical pencil 0.5

  • Eraser

  • Vellum paperboard

I drew the outline of the photo then continue coloring the drawing. I started with emphasizing the dark and light shadows using four colors: black, dark brown, light brown and maroon. After that, I started with the details of the eyes, eyebrows, nose and lips. Upon achieving the desired details, I applied the actual skin colors using different shades like flesh, pink, orange, gold, green, etc.

I made the drawing more saturated than the actual photo because I just find it cute and unique than copying the exact colors of the reference, though I don't know if ya'll guys think the same way as I do. Anyway, I would be very glad if you'll share your thoughts and/or tips on my artwork.

Thank you so much for supporting me guys! Watch out for more artworks ♥ Stay safe.

Looks like it, some places lack emphasis and it feels like you didn't use guides for this one like you usually did. It's been almost a month since you last did 😅

yes that's right! the original idea was just a quick sketch that's why I didn't bother using grid lines. I was happy that I got the outlines accurately so I changed my mind and colored the portrait instead lol

Well it still came out fine in the end. Now all you need to do is finish it up and polish it up a bit
