Twilight: Bella by Raishuu Twilight: Bella by Raishuu
I started accepting commissions recently and wanted to see what is the shortest time in which I can draw a recognisable portrait. I used a picture of Kristen Stewart that I still had in my reference folder and spent two hours on this. I know the hair is anything but detailed but I wanted to keep this as simple as possible while still decent-looking.

I used Lukas Drawing & Painting Paper No. 4 and remembered that I didn't like the structure it has. But the graphite smears really nicely on this paper which is quite helpful if you want to shadow large areas quickly.
I used mainly a 2B pencil and later a 7B because I was lazy and wanted to finish the hair quickly.
As I mentioned earlier this took me two hours and I'm quite happy with the result. I think there's something wrong with her nose and chin though :confused:

This is the ultimate result for 2 hours work. It's simply fantastic !

P.S. I suppose the chin's bottom could be darkened a little, as you mentioned.But this is quite an objective opinion, so... great work , again ! ;]

2 hours of work? A piece like this would probably have taken me days, lol. Really great portrait, I find it very hard to be a "quickie":P

Was hast du denn da für ein Papier benutzt??
Das schaut ja noch gröber aus wie Aquarellpapier :giggle:
Muss schwierig gewesen sein darauf mit nem Bleistift zu zeichnen :nod: :)

Das ist ein gröberes was ich noch bei mir rumfliegen hatte. Ich wollte für die 2-Stunden Skizze mal ein anderes ausprobieren, aber ich mags wegen der Struktur nicht wirklich. Und das Graphit schmiert ziemlich heftig, was mir hier zwar entgegen kam, aber für die sehr realistischen Sachen glaub ich eher hinderlich ist ^^;

Das stimmt :nod:. Für feine und saubere Zeichnungen ist dieses Papier sehr unpraktisch.

That's the structure of the paper and I actually don't like it :D But I'm glad some people do and I'm glad you like my drawing :w00t: :aww: I'd recommend reading the books, I liked them a lot, didn't like the movie that much but the books are really nice. It's just annoying that whenever you say something positive about twilight you get called a twitard or crazy obsessed fangirl or something :|
