draw along - ballpoint pen biro sketch by angelfaces1986 draw along - ballpoint pen biro sketch by angelfaces1986
I really wanted to take part in the draw along challenge when i found it yesterday, i have so many projects on the go that i couldn't much time to it, I done this quick sketch at work today in around 2 and half hours. im not happy with it at all as i'd normally spend 20 hours on a coloured biro portrait but its just for a bit of fun!! :) although id have loved to have been able to put the effort in to do something im proud of.....maybe next month

here is a link to the comp [link]
and her is a link to the ref photo

nice job on her lips, I wish I had been able to get them down like that.

:faint: This is absolutely beautiful! I'm curious to know what colours went into this, I can see hints of the colours but would love to know exactly. :)

erm the skin tone is a mix of black, red, orange and blue. red and black for obvious bits and black, orange and green in the hair i think, maybe some red here and there
