Eliza Dushku. Very detailed and realistic pencil portrait drawing.

My drawing of the Actress Eliza Dushku, known for playing the role of Faith in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and more recently was the star of the show Dollhouse. One of the most detailed portraits that I’ve done, I put a lot of time and effort into this one. It’s quite a large drawing, size A3. The necklace she’s wearing was a crazy thing to draw and probably took longer to do than any other part of the drawing. I’m very pleased with this and the level of realism I got into it and it’s my favourite portrait that I have done. 
I used HB and 2B 5mm mechanical pencil, HB 7mm mechanical pencil, various different grades of pencil ranging from 2H – 5B, blending stumps, tissues, kneaded and normal erasers, eraser pencil and lots of cups of tea.



Scarlett Johansson. Detailed pencil drawing


My drawing of Scarlett Johansson . An A4 size drawing (297mm x 210mm)., I tried to put lots of detail into it. I put a lot of time into drawing that dress with so much white and all those ruffles. 
I used HB & 2B mechanical pencil, H2, & H4 pencil, many different kinds of eraser,blending stumps and tissues.

Doctor Who - The Pandorica.



Doctor Who - The Pandorica. Based on the British Sci Fi show. Featuring Matt Smith as the Doctor. The drawing also features his companions - Amy Pond, Rory Williams, and River Song, along with two of his enemies, a Dalek and a Cyberman. I'm actually a big Doctor Who fan and really enjoyed drawing this. 
Size is A3 (420mm x297mm). I used HB and 2B 5mm mechanical pencils, HB 7mm mechanical pencil, various different grades of pencil ranging from 2H – 5B, blending stumps, tissues, kneaded & normal erasers.
