Katy Perry Color Pencils by PriscillaW Katy Perry Color Pencils by PriscillaW
Finally! After 3 weeks of drawing (in addition to other projects), I have finished this super difficult drawing. I cannot believe I chose such a crazy reference photo to draw from. What was I thinking?! Anyway, it is far from perfect, but I am glad I did it. I finished this drawing with 24 count set of Faber Castell color pencils, Faber Castell artist pen, and blending stumps on 14 by 17 inch Strathmore bristol board.

Thank you so much! I felt I needed to make it darker and more blurry so it would be more in the background, but that background kicked my butt! :p

I've gotta be honest. I saw this as a thumbnail, and the first words through my mind were as follows:
"Oh my god. Get fucked!"

They say "art grip" on the case. They just have these small bumps on them that act as grips.
