It's what makes you extraordinary by StandsWithAPencil It's what makes you extraordinary by StandsWithAPencil

Another Stana drawing. Or Kate Beckett (from ABC's Castle) I seriously need to draw other people! hahaha. Anyhoo, I had this photo on my computer for a long time and finally took the time to draw it. Took me a month of on and off drawing to finish it.

Coloured pencils (Bruynzeel :( I want Faber Castell Pencils but I'm poor)
Bristol paper
Pigment liner for the pupil, which is the only black I allowed myself to use.

All comments and advice on how I can get even better at this in the near future is welcome :)

ETA: Stana posted it on her facebook <3 [link]

I think this is really good! :) I love how it could be a drawing and how it can also be a photo (if you really wanted it to be one) Honestly this person did better than I could ever do! And i just really like it because ya know, I like Castle. And I love Stana, (AKA Katherine Beckett) I think that the shading is amazing considering that shading is a VERY hard thing to do because if you mes up the shading then it confuses people to where the sun would be in their picture. The hair, it amazing because I love it when people make hair look good. I love the way it looks, I just love it... Welp, thank you for letting me do this Critique on this wonderful drawing! :D

Peace out!
