Taylor Swift by Q-Le Taylor Swift by Q-Le
It's finally done! :faint:
I'm not really glad with the outcome as there are so many mistakes, but as usual I'm kind of lazy :lmao:
But I'm glad with it at the same time, because this is probably the first time I've put effort in hair and I've never drawn such a long time on one drawing.

This was a BIG challenge for me, as I usual avoid hair, and if there was hair, I would just scribble it.
The challenge might have been too big though haha I started getting lazy at the bottom half of the hair. My main focus would be curly hair, so I decided to draw her. Also because she's blonde which is easier to draw (taking baby steps :))

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-B,3B,8B pencils
-2B mechanical pencil
-tissues
-tortillon
-all kinds of erasers
- white gel pen for the finish in touch :)
-A4 Paper

Wow! I am so Amazed by your Artwork. This is beautiful and the curls look soft & lovely. I see that you've even drawn the little stray pieces...so much detail. My daughter has all of Taylor Swift's cds so I instantly recognized this picture, lol

Thank you so much! I really appreciate the kind words. The main focus in this drawing was for me the hair, so I'm glad you noticed that :D

Well done. You really captured her visage. As for the mistakes, that's what makes your art memorable. Generally it is the imperfections that add character.

No problem. Just for relating purposes, I just recently uploaded my newest painting and realized the girl's skin tone is lighter on the right side and darker on the left. :P I'm leaving it that way though. I already matte finished it and it still looks good enough. We be our own worst critics.

Hair is the hardest part to draw...I have to try to do the hair things even if it gives me a hard time...other seems to take their time on every details of the hairs...well, I kinda like the way you do...but i think you and you i have the same laziness on hair...Awesome work btw!!!

Thanks :P I actually put a lot of effort in the hair in this drawing, I was trying to make it realistic as possible without showing too many strands (since her hair looks very fluffy). It also took a lot of time because of the curls. I did get more lazy at the end though
