Audrey Hepburn 2 by bulletinthegun Audrey Hepburn 2 by bulletinthegun
Well I certainly am on fire with the drawings. I actually finished this one a couple of weeks ago but only got round to scanning it now. And am I getting the hang of this scanner? No. It's slightly better but I just wish there was some way of getting an EXACT digital replica. Obviously my budget just doesn't stretch that far.

Anyway watched Funny Face, either before or while I was doing this I can't quite remember. Not as good as Breakfast at Tiffany's but this is one of the promotional shots for that movie.

All the standard stuff - A4 smooth drawing paper and my trusty HB mechanical pencil. I wanted to do this particular drawing because I noticed how Audrey's face was very shaded - and also because this is one of my favourite pictures of her, she looks so demure and so Audrey. However as you can see I didn't really shade the face much, I don't know I just think it looks better this way. Really proud of the hair again - she has the best hair to draw. Also really proud of the jumper not as much of a challenge as I original anticipated.

There's something very comic booky about this. I never would have guessed that Audrey's look would lend so well to that sort of style. It's amazingly animated. You almost expect her to open her eyes and look at the viewer. Your line style and smooth shading are absolutely lovely, too.

Lovely work. And I have a special attachment to this piece, for my daughter is named Audrey and yep, we named her for Ms.Hepburn.

And oddly enough, she's turning out to be an elfin-faced brunette with big eyes... funny how these things work, eh?
