A gift for a friend, this was a fairly quick piece done in only 2 nights, I didn't spend long on details. This is Katy with her signature pinup look promoting her hosting role at the Teen Choice Awards in 2010.
8 hrs?? wow awesome, just awesome. I am in love with th deep black you achieve in your portraits. Any suggestion about how to get it? I don't love soft graphite pencils like a 7B because they "shine" a bit. Of course it doesn't show on a digital version but can you please tell me if you found a way to get a mat black on paper with a 7B? Thanks in advance for any tips
