I was scanning through Pinterest for something to draw and came across this picture of Holly Rose Emery. I find this picture to be very haunting and intriguing and immediately decided to draw it.
So, a bit about the model. Holly Rose Emery is 16 years old (like me), from the land of Kiwis. And very beautiful in my opinion, I can’t really start drawing someone if I don’t have some kind of crush on them, so yeah. The picture was taken by Nicole Bentley for Vogue Australia August 2013.
Here are some of my work in progress pictures.
I usually do a very rough sketch to determine where everything is in general. And then I slowly correct things as I draw, I’m not one of those artist who have to have their sketch proportioned before starting to work, I wish I am but I’m not patient enough, haha.
Oh and don’t forget the reference picture! I usually set my reference picture to black and white for easier drawing.

First of all, I have to say the past few days have been very hectic! I started the week with my last day of final exams, and by the end of the day I lay dead in bed. The next day I had to wake up very early to go the the fabric market to buy stuff to make a Betty Boop costume, which is the character I decided to go as to a costume party.
After a very quick trip around fabric market I went back home and started my super-top-speed-non-stop-killer-machine-sewing mode. And by the end of the day I almost finish the whole dress. Being sleep deprived from the whole ‘exam season’, I went to bed early only to wake up the next day to complete the dress, wash it, iron it and then go to help my friend prepare his costume (which by the way took ages!)
As you can see my friend went as the Avatar and you can still see traces of blue ink on my hands and arms.
So, the night was a BLAST (but I don’t want to bomb you with so many pictures, haha)! The food was enjoyable, the activities was fun, everything was just perfect!
Now, I got to go dip my feet in warm water to help with my foot ache (seriously, how do other girls manage to wear high heels for hours without getting sore is a total mystery…) but here’s a little sneak peek of something I’ve been working on. 🙂

I decide to start a blog and to start I’m posting one of the first pictures I’ve scanned. I actually drew it for my teacher as a retiring present.
