Amanda Seyfried by elisabethsmenesfrost Amanda Seyfried by elisabethsmenesfrost
Finally a new finished drawing from me. It's been some years since last time. I don't know why, I love to draw, but I think that one of the reasons is that i have become less patient. I'll work on that.

Anyways...

I started to work on this about a year ago, and decided to finish it now. This is the beautiful and talented actress Amanda Seyfried :)


- Derwent pencils from 9h to 9b
- Mechanical pencils 3mm, 5mm and 7mm. HB and 2B.
- Cotton sticks
- Kneadable eraser
- White and black pen
- Hours..I'm not sure, but probably about 25 or more.

Wow, I'm speechless... Here again, how do you manage to do so smooth shading ? I'm very impressed by your work, I love it !!!

It helps to use paper that is smooth, has a high "poundage", and is made specifically with drawings in mind. Other types of paper can have "voids" in between the weave and those create breaks in the shading. It's also useful to have a blending tool of some kind. I use some Charmin towels and a fluffy eye shadow brush but any that works is good.

Thanks for those tips :)

Yes it would help to have a smoother than the one that I use...

But I think that hours and hours of practice is what I need the most !!

I kept reading books and looking at art videos online for tips. The artist Mark Crailley is a good one to watch. He works with both graphical and realistic drawings. It might also help to try out different ways to hold the pencil. Varying sharpness can give you a different look too. I tend to keep a dull and sharp version of each pencil to create gradients and effects.

Stunning! How many years did it take for you to get to this level of perfection? This is truly amazing detail, amazingly clean lines and shading.

And you're only 22 yrs old????

I have been drawing and painting since I was a few years old, but started doing portraits at the age of 13. I've had a few long breaks the last years, but now I'm back again :)

Hey can you check out my artwork? It's not that great, I turned 13 in late February (as if my age should be an excuse for the poor quality!) Haha.
Thanks so much! :painter: :jedi:
