Sometimes.. by lloveandsqualor Sometimes.. by lloveandsqualor
*this is the second time submitting this drawing, first time round it wasnt appearing to my watchers :S, so here it is... again*

title from music shuffle.
thanks to ~Laiyla for the original photo -


this is A4 in height and about square, so close to A3 but not quite.
drawn mainly in 2B mechanical pencil, but also 6B and H pencils.
probably about 10 hours work.
iv just noticed the shading around the right eye is quite off, but still think this might be my best yet :D

please feel free to comment and critique. :)

Absolutely gorgeous, I love it! The hair is beautiful, especially on the left side where some strands are blurred, it gives it good depth. My only suggestion would be to remove a couple of the strands that fall in front of the pupil. That way you don't have anything interfering with the eye, so you could bring a lot of focus to it and really make it pop. That was the first thing I looked at when I saw the picture, and I think the more that eye can pop, the more impact the picture will have overall. All around- AWESOME!
What do you think?

Thanks man, and I used a chopped up eraser for the hairs, just cut a sharp edge into an eraser. Although I now have a click eraser (like a mechanical pencil, only thicker and and eraser) and an eraser pencil which are both useful.
