Drawing 005: Portrait - Penelope Cruz

Hi everyone!
Today I am very excited to show you this drawing because I am very proud of myself! It's a portrait I made of the gorgeous Penelope Cruz from a photograph taken by Paul Schmidt for ELLE. I used a grid to get everything at the right place. I usually never use a grid but it makes the result so much better that I know I will be doing this each and every time now. I got these awesome pencils for Christmas (F, 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B and graphite) and it definitively helped getting the darker parts really dark. The hardest part for me is always the hair. But practice makes perfect so I plan on drawing lots and lots of hair to get better at it. I hope you like this drawing and have a great Sunday!
Love, Elsa
