Made Mistakes

Half of this drawing is blonde hair

Digital watercolor and pencil portrait of a blonde woman's face. Cropped to show her left eye, red lips and blue collared blouse.

PaperFaces portrait of @luxepain. Always looking to further perfect my hair drawing skills — boy was there a bunch of hair for me to practice on in this sketch! I’m including a few work in progress screen grabs below showing how I built up the hair with pencil line after pencil line after pencil line.

Drawing the face pencil first, watercolor second.
