Ewa Chce Spać (08.02.2015)

About the drawing: This is not one of my better drawings in my opinion, but since it is my first portrait drawing I just had to include it here. The girl is Ewa from the classic Polish movie Ewa chce spać (1957). The actress is Barbara Kwiatkowska-Lass. I love the movie and its beautiful cinematography and therefor I wanted to draw the main character of the movie. Below I've added the picture that i used as an example. I made the hair look shiny by erasing the graphite / charcoal in certain parts over which i drew the hairlines. I was not happy with the long hair at her right side between her head and shoulder (see in link below), so in the end I erased these with ink.

Material used: Graphite pencils (HB-8B) and charcoal.
