I've done two close up drawings of two different models. They're both very different photos, different perspective, different style. I hope you enjoy looking at them!
This was a photo taken of the model's profile. She has a wicked updo consisting of a fishtail wrapped around the front of the head which was probably the hardest part to draw.
This one is a very sleek model, the hair has been scraped back completely, opening up her face. I've used my fingers to smudge the pencil where appropriate to create the shading and used a rubber to show where the light is shining.
This post is not remotely affiliated with fashion, however, today I had a brilliant experience that I would really love to bring your attention to and share. Today, at school, myself and my fellow classmates received an absolutely inspiring talk from a woman named Mandy Saligari. She spoke to us about how she was a drug addict from the age of 13 and her journey through recovery from her addiction in 1990.
Mandy spoke to us about her early life as a child and shared with us how her parents were as people and their specific addictions. She mentioned how one can be influenced into addiction because it's in their family, so happened through genetic predisposition. Mrs Saligari is now fully recovered and lives her life happily with her husband and children, and despite having Rheumatoid Arthiritis, is making the most out of her time.
Mandy's speech was truly fascinating and really hit home for me, as a person, and I left the room feeling really well-guided and so much better about my…
If you know me at all, whether it be personally or from my social media, it is pretty transparent that I am a nut for all things French. It has now reached the point where my own family believe I must have been French in a past life. There is absolutely no denying the fact that, despite me being a legitimate British citizen (you can check my passport if you don't believe me), I was unequivocally French in a past life. Voilà, my secret it out. (I do still love a good ol' cuppa and an occasional scone, so I'm not an absolute traitor.) I have been asked on countless occasions why I have this emotional affiliation with France, especially Paris. The truth is, it all began when I was aged a mere 6 years old and I went on a family holiday to Bordeaux, where we stayed in a beautiful winery in which me and my sister would play on our tamagotchis whilst sipping red wine....(I'm TOTALLY joking....). My parents have recently recalled that they used to send me out every morning to fe…
September has arrived and that means it is officially time to start getting excited about Halloween, my FAVOURITE time of year! Halloween is definitely the one and only celebration where you can go all out on a wicked costume and be in with a chance of winning best dressed. Any chance to wear fancy dress and I'm in. I've been extremely impressed with the numerous amounts of halloween outfits and accessories available from the high street stores this year. From colourful tights to clever slogan T-shirts, there is something out there for everyone to wear this Halloween, no matter how un-spooky they may be feeling! In this post I will be sharing my favourite items that are on sale now from high street retailers, hopefully sparking a creative flame in you and inspire you to hit the web and grab some new spooky garms this season.
