Lana Del Rey by Yankeestyle94 Lana Del Rey by Yankeestyle94
This is my final Christmas-present this year and my second present for my sister Sophie. It's of her favorite singer Lana Del Rey. I've got a feeling that she's going to be over the moon when she gets the finished result. :D

Here's the video of this drawing: www.youtube.com/watch?v=grBkBY…

Time: 12hours
Tools: 2H-8B graphite pencil, ruler, kneaded eraser & eraser, tortillion, acrylic-brush & chamois for blending
Paper: 250g/m2 Canson Bristol A3

How big was the canvas or paper you worked on? It's so detailed.

This is one of my favourite drawing of Lana I've ever seen.. It's not perfect actually but it has something what I can't describe. Maybe it's that shine in her eyes which makes her alive :)

Thank you :-) this was a short session since I spended only one day to create the sketch(with one day I do not mean 24hours) and the other day I recorded the rest and was finished after a couple of hours. Most of my latest work are finished after a short time from start to finish.

Yes it's mostly similar but some just want a simple sketch instead of a advanced piece of art. :-)

They find me by seeing art on facebook or DA and some people hear from friends that know me or have bought art from me before. They give me a photo that they want me to draw and let me work with the drawings at home. When I'm finished I contact the buyer so they can come and pay and get the drawing. :-)
But I take a part of the payment in advance when I get the order to know that they are serious about buying. I didn't do that before and had bad experience with people that wouldn't pay or when I was finish they say that they don't have enough money.
I finally had enough with that since drawing an advanced portrait isn't an easy jod and it takes a lot of my time. That's why I take payment in advance.
