Girl With the Skull Earring by Charmed-Ravenclaw Girl With the Skull Earring by Charmed-Ravenclaw
Sigh. Unfortunately the skull earring didn't show up as much as I'd have liked but oh well. This is my entry for the Stylenoir Monarchy Contest. I particularly thought of the Noir conventions so that became my main focus. I considered giving her some fancier attire, more typical of a monarchy, but I didn't really want that to distract from the skull earring that was supposed to be the focus of this pic.

To stock artists out there, I reckon stock with venetian blind lighting would make fantastic reference ;) Just in case you are hunting for ideas ;)

Maybe I'll submit another entry :)

So, this is my first graphite piece since This time I used Bristol paper which is much smoother than the rough sketch paper I was using before. Still, the 8B pencil was very sticky to use and I had to force it across my page, which resulted in some terrible pencil strokes. I was using a Staedler 8B pencil... Comparing them to the Derwent one I found the Derwent one easier to apply. Any thoughts?

Constructive criticism wanted! I feel the window may be out of proportion and/or perspective. Anything else you can think of is also free game.
