Marianne by MLS-art Marianne by MLS-art
Thought id make a change from doing serious faces and do something a little more lighthearted. There is also much more of her personality coming out in this drawing in my opinion.

You wouldnt think she had a PhD and a senior role as a lecturer from this portrait, but thats why I chose this image to draw from, sometimes roles and titles do not necessarily give the right impression about people. This is her true self to me, always will be, regardless of how many letters she has after her name haha.

Wolffs carbon pencil 6b for darks.
Prismacolor ebony pencil for mids.
2h,2b & 4b mechanical pencil for skintones and white posca paint pen and eraser for hair highlights.

40 x 26 cm

Approx 9 hours.
