Melina for  President by TheSignmaker Melina for  President by TheSignmaker
Melina for President: the children ARE the future. The ´next generation´ is here, looking eager into this world... preparing themselves to make it a better place for ALL

Reference is a picture taken by Dina from Israel of her beautiful sister Melina [link]
Visit Dina´s gallery, because she is a talented young photographer who knows how to catch the moment...take some time to enjoy her work

Thank youwww...hahaha,
To me she does not look sad...
Melina lives in Jerusalem, where war is still alive every day.
She sees the pain the people aroudn her are facing...but she also sees the opportunitiues she has in her life to make the change for the better.
IŽd say she looks determined.... :iconchristmastreeplz:

Hi there and thanks for your interest :-)
Sorry for the late reply, I was on holidays...

Shading and highlighting...hmmmm....
Shading I start with a pencil HB or B and then I work a LOT on that with a paper stump (tortillon) the tortillon is like 80% of my time on a drawing. I work in layers gettign things darker and darker each time. Then to highlight again I use the kneaded eraser, a sharpened eraser and an electric eraser. The electric eraser works great and I have one from brand Derwent with costs like around 6 euros/7 dollars. I can really get the whites back with this and it is really great fun to use!
Hope this helps you :-) big :hug: :-)
