Katy Perry 002 by mandydboss Katy Perry 002 by mandydboss
About 13 hours
A4 Bristol Board
HB, 2B, 0.35 and 0.5 Mechanical Pencil
Tissue

First time I've used Bristol Board, very nearly ripped this piece up on 3 occasions.
Found the Bristol Board to be difficult when blending, but I hope I got there in the end.

 I used Bristol board paper as I already knew I wanted good strong blacks, for the hair and eyes i used mechanical 0.5 & 0.7 pencils and built up the blacks slowly.

This is really good! How do you manage to get such precise detail when doing the hair?

Tough question, I'll answer best I can, I used Bristol board paper as I already knew I wanted good strong blacks, for the hair i used mechanical 0.5 & 0.7 pencils and built up the blacks slowly, making sure I kept the areas I want some shine were not over done, I softened and blended areas using tissue lightly and then built the strands back in with the mechanical pencils, I may have used a pencil rubber to achieve some of the highlights on the hair. Hope this helps.
