Drew Barrymore’s portrait drawing, step by step photos!
Here are the promised photos of the different steps of my recent drawing.
This was the most complicated thing I have ever drawn! That much patience was something I hadn’t before, usually preferred to get results soon, but this time had to wait something like 20 days or so to finish the work. I spent approx. 25-28 hours on this energy consuming never ending artwork!
By the way, does anyone know if these types of drawings can be sold? I guess they can’t be, ’cause the photo used as model very probably is copyrighted, but if you know more please let me know, I’m just curious, thanks!
This time to get the right proportions I used the grids! That may not seem very professional, but believe me, that was a new discovery for me!!! 😀
Guess how much time I wasted before to get the right proportions, and it was never exactly what I wanted. Using the grids I could easily draw the principle lines and get the right proportions. Pretty neat!
And again my cheap magical mechanical pencil helped me a lot to create the craziest details of this portrait, on a smooth Fabriano paper. For the fine lights, and the light lines of hair I used Pelikan white gum eraser, cheap and neat!
Didn’t use any other material to draw this portrait, only a pair of tired eyes, decorated with vivid red veins for the lack of sleep, and my drawing-thirsty hand! 😀 And of course the photo of Drew Barrymore as the model, guess she was very younger when this photo was taken.
Hope you enjoy viewing all the different stages of this portrait, and the final result.
Looking forward to reading your comments and opinions.
