I searched for a gift for Kim, but I wanted it to be special, something you wouldn't get for Christmas normally.. I thought a drawing was a good way to show her how much she means to me, but I didn't ask because sometimes finding such an artwork in your closet years later can hurt haha. I was so happy when she asked if I could draw her.. *lovely moaning* Anyways, also a good opportunity to practice! Started off with printing the pic, and (lightly!) sketching the basic lines with a HB pencil on a3 paper with the pic next to it. No tracing! Then getting to the shadows with B pencils and the highlights were done with a white Molotow 227HS paintmarker. Nice finishing touch isn't it?
