Femme Seduisante by TrentRedmon Femme Seduisante by TrentRedmon

9" x 12" Pencil Drawing on Illustration board
2H, 2B, & 8B Pencils used, kneadable and white eraser, 2 brushes, a tortillion, and a blending stump. 

First of a three-part series of female portraits (next two will be originals). This was one was to give me practice drawing a woman - her smooth skin texture and hair, delicate features...etc.

Roughly 80-100 hours.

This is fantastic! Everything looks just amazing but a few things that capture my attention: All the flyaway hairs, I wish I could do this! Also, the texture of the skin on the neck, how it's smooth but not perfectly smooth, it just looks like skin actually looks. I also love the side of the hand with the tiny creases. The lighting on the left ear, which almost gives it a translucency. The whole work is just amazing.Chica's Pizza Withdraw (Chat Icon) 

I wish I could do work like this, but my hands just can't seem to make that shape. Freddy's Nope Chat Icon

Thanks a lot, yeah the flyaway hairs were annoying - it was tough to draw on a picture this small - ideally you wanna go big to be able to pull off thin detailed hairs, so it was tough to do in only a 9" by 12" drawing. Glad you appreciated the small details - those are what can bring a drawing to life.

What do you use the brushes for, if you don't mind me asking?

It helps smooth the graphite out to fill in the little white dots between the teeth of the paper, so it helps achieve smoother looking shading - especially when you combine it with carefully layered pencil work.

You have amazing drawing skills. I admire your patience to spend so much time on a drawing. I tend to get a little eager to finish my pictures. I'm working on my patience :-)

Thank you, yeah don't worry I suffer from the same thing haha. I think it's common for artists to lose patience especially when you're 80-90% finished - you just wanna get it done.
