Mischa Barton by bulletinthegun Mischa Barton by bulletinthegun
Wow been a while since I submitted a portrait, especially one done in pencil.

Time: about 15 hours - done over the course of two days
Paper: A3 smooth
Medium: HB mechanical pencil

Yeah so back to the old pencil instead of charcoal... well i just though it would be easier for this particular image, I also took more time scanning it in so that it looked as close to the original as possible.
God I hate how this girl is only a year older than me.
Yeah so funky composition and to fav is to love :hug:

p.s. let me know if you think I submitted it too big.

this looks absolutely amazing! Only there's a lot of with on the right side, and that makes it look not finished. Don't know if you will remove that, but if you do it's definitely a fav :D

Nah I don't feel like it looks much like her either. I was just happy with the way the shading came out. Thanks so much for the comment - I love honesty :D Does that sound sarcastic? If so I don't mean it to be lol.

hahahaha no, that didn''t sound sarcastic ;)
yeah the shading does look really good. I still find shading to be very difficult.

The hair especially is amazing. Very smooth and realistic pencil work, and the composition is great. :) :+fav:

Thanks. I really found the hair so much more challenging with pencil - you have to be a lot more accurate.
