It's a pencil drawing I did of Lara Kruzins. The reference used was a picture by her, of her, originally entitled "sg." It's an incredible photograph, and I strongly recommend looking at the rest of her gallery too, it's just as amazing. I've been pretty much obsessed with Lara's work for quite some time, she's brought so much inspiration to my mind, I only felt it appropriate to give her something in return.
So Lara, this is for you.
It may not be perfect (ie. slightly thinner face, the right(left) eye is a bit off, the hairs not as hot...etc.) but that's just my own personal criticism choking me. Then again...I think it would be practically impossible to recreate her beauty. Nonetheless, I like it.
I would also like to say thanks to ~shimoda7 for making me realize that with time great things can be achieved. I always used to rush with whatever I was working on, and I looked at his/her gallery and thought to myself..."I wonder if I took my time..." So I did, and this is the result.
I worked on it for about 8 hours, and it was done with a mechanical HB pencil.
Hope you like it.
