Well all I have to say is, I'm glad its finally done.:phew: I could honestly say this is the hardest drawing I have ever attempted.:dead: It really pushed my limits to the max and tested my patience.:explosion: This was also the first time I drew a portrait where part of it was out of focus.:chew:  Overall, I'm very happy with the outcome, and look forward to seeing just how far I can go with pencil realism in the future. :la:

I cant explain this part either. I don't even remember what pencils I specifically used. xD All I know is that this part of the drawing made me want to pull my hair out. Even though I was going box by box with the grid,I could barley keep up each hair strand and direction.
(Ill be posting the completed version later today)

The same technique used in tutorial #5 was the same used here. At this point,I'm dreading this drawing. I hate shading the flowers, especially the second one now. Every 2 centimeters there is a different shade and nothing but continuously blending, so it took a lot of patience I didn't quite have.

Genuine WIP #9 (Tutorial) by Nicksta100
Genuine WIP #9 (Tutorial)
I have only drawn lips twice in my entire drawing career so this was still relatively new to me. I just never really got so far into a portrait, and when I did, I avoided them because of the difficulty. I cant really explain what I did here because I tried so many techniques, but Ill name the pencils I used. I used a HB for the upper lip,2b for the both sides of the lip,2h for upper portion, 4b for the lower left side blended out,8b for inside of the lip,6b for the left side of the inside of the lip and 4h for the right outer side. As for what I did to achieve the realism,I don't even remember.

The eyebrows are simple to draw. Mostly for this portrait, its just a darker shaded strip or area I used a 2b pencil for. The eye lashes are a little harder. I used a 2b mechanical pencil for the lashes and a 4b for the clumped lashes. For the lashes that fade out, I used an HB and 2H pencil for. For the dull highlights in the lashes, I used a kneaded eraser. For the nose, I used an HB pencil then blended it out and a 2b pencil for the darker shade of the nose.
