I need a new scanner.

Story behind this drawing?  Well, I was trying to go to sleep the other night, and this woman kept putting herself together in my mind.  She kept me up for HOURS before I could finally go to sleep.  That is a demand to be drawn if ever there was one.  So yesterday I went looking through stock photos on DeviantArt (I've been having some troubles getting my spontaneous work to look right lately, so thought a reference might be the answer), and Skategirl's lovely face came up in my search.  Thus, this drawing was born.  Done completely using an HB pencil and my wonderful, indisposable pencil sharpener.

Credits (thanks!!!):
The inspiration for the entire drawing, and the photo from which I drew Madame Cuervo's face: LINK by the DeviantArtist, Skategirl.  Her photomanipulations are totally amazing!  I recommend visiting her gallery.

Note:  I obtained permission to post this image.

The reference for the lace collar is here.

And, finally, the reference for blouse shape is here.

Thanks for looking!

      Yeah - for some reason this one didn't get any exposure. Seems like our site activity is a little low lately.
