Aaliyah by SandraSaar Aaliyah by SandraSaar
Completed! :dance:
I really enjoyed drawing this... since she was soooo pretty. :love:

This is how the picture looks- the white borders are left white in my drawing (the background is white too but you can't see that here). :bucktooth:

My damn camera lost half of the shades. :shakefist: So it looks better in real life...


Used:
- 0,5 HB and 0,7 B mechanical pencils
- A4 paper
- paper stumps
- erasers (pencil, kneadable)
- paper tissues
- reference photo
- time: ~20 hours


2008

Hi, jwillisjr08 on Instagram stole your art piece on Aaliyah. He claimed one of my drawing was his too. You may want to check it out.

Hey How are you? My Name Is Denisha, and First off I just wanted to say that I LOVE UR WORK! SO much in fact that I wanted to know if you would allow me to use it for my website! Its an Fan Art website...Its basically built just to get others as well as myself artworks out there...because I think that your work is truly amazing and I believe that they should be seen....hopefully It will get so big that even the Entertainers will see it...

It looks like a photo, that's terribly realistic on textures, reflections (on lips particularly) and shadows i'm subjugated by your work.
