Ground cinnamon by Q-Le Ground cinnamon by Q-Le
It's finished :dummy: Full view please :)

This time I wanted to challenge myself and draw some skin with freckles. I have to admit though, the hair could be a lot better, I just did the hair a bit quickly :ashamed:

If you want to compare this drawing and the photograph to see if I did every single freckle similar (same thing for the hair), don't bother.
This time I tried to use the reference very loose. And I did this on purpose.
I still drew the main things close to the reference, but drawing this way, I was free to add details that are not on the actual photograph.

Some artists stay very accurate to the photograph and some use it very loose once they've drawn the correct proportions. Honestly, drawing this way is (for me) a lot more relaxing.

Tools:
-B, 3B, 8B pencils
-Smooth A4 Paper
-tissues
-Blending stumps
-diffrent kinds of erasers

Of course! I think it's more ambitious to draw or paint varied skin. And you've made this so good! Aww

The hair could be better? Are you kidding? The hair is AMAZING, and the whole photograph is just stunning, and so accurate. This is the skill I wish I had, but I guess I'll just have to practice more ^.^ This really is lovely. Good job, and I can't wait to see more of your work. :)
