Cara Delevingne by CSwenson-Artistry Cara Delevingne by CSwenson-Artistry
Portrait of fashion model Cara Delevingne.

*This file is was photographed outside, and a higher quality scanned file will be up in a couple months (but this is the finished product none-of-the-less)

The original was made on 14" x 17" smooth Bristol paper. I believe it was over 20 hours, though I lost track. This was my biggest drawing i've done yet and done only with my hands, no grid overlays or guides. Needless to say it was quite a challenge for me, but good practice. Over all I'd say I'm fairly happy with the turn out.

Staedtler Lumograph Pencils 2H-8B
Colored Pencils, Ink, and Copic Markers (Iris)
Tortillons, Stumps, and Cotton Balls for smoothing.

There's quite a few portraits of young Cara on the net - this stand out due to its lovely clean line work and minimalist use of shading. Great work :#1:
