pencilled self portrait

Decided to try out the Style Challenge–where you do your portrait in styles of artists you admire–decided first to go for a Tracy Butler (of Lackadaisy) vibe. From what I’ve read from her tutorials, she usually does the first pass in pencil, scans it in, and then photoshops over, but I was so excited by the realistic pecil brushes I just bought, I decided to do it all digitally–which I think took longer than just pulling out a pencil.

I would have gone more into detail with the 20′s outfit since she’s known for a crazy amount of detail but mm this style gives me carpal tunnel. So many little pencil movements! I like how it came out though. I learned something today, which is what this challenge is about.
