More Art Practice

I’ve been enjoying my new method of working with colored pencils, so here’s another piece for you to enjoy.

First, the reference art. She is NOT nude, but it looks that way if you squint, so apologies. From Studio Grafit.

The tracing. I erase a lot of the heavier lines to make it easy to color over:

The marker base, sans eyes because I was afraid it would bleed into the white.

The final:

I used gold glitter pen for some detail work and a white pen for the pearls and highlights.

It was ~7 hours of work, but I learned a lot!
