Jessica Alba 2012 by acjub Jessica Alba 2012 by acjub
So this is my drawing for the Draw this Again contest! :D

I had to start this one twice as the first attempt didnt turn out too well :XD:
It's my first time doing a graphite drawing in Bristol board. I must say I like this paper quite a lot.
And this is the first time I've actually enjoyed drawing hair! :la:

Here is the 2007 version:


Size: A4
Tools: Grid, ruler, pencils, rubbers, paper tissue and paper stumps. and a white gel pen for small highlights.
