The last week and a half has been dedicated to completing my second batch of portraits for my "Beauty Series" as I am really trying to get this 36 piece series complete. I definitely think the time and effort will be worth it once they are all completed.
I have now completed 24 out of 36 portraits that will make up the Stage 2 of this series. 12 more to go! For Stage 2 I used a 2H pencil, an HB pencil, and a 3B pencil to draw on the faces. I chose pencil as my medium for this stage because it gives the faces a faded, almost ghostly look. This will help me portray that true female beauty is found in ones personality and character, not external beauty. However, the portrait is still the focal point of each piece as the image was chosen by each individual woman as the photo THEY feel they look beautiful in.
I hope you enjoy them! Please leave a comment if you have the time. :)
