Roses are Red by Cataclysm-X Roses are Red by Cataclysm-X
...EDIT...
Changed watermark once more...



I was having a small discussion with =hybridfan (can you remember, by the way? It has been a while!) about which series I like to watch and he suggested me to draw Rose McGowan sometime.

And now I did!

Yeah, I used to be, and still am, a huge fan of the Charmed series. I've seen every episode at least 2 times. First I didn't like her, but later I really started to appreciate her appearance in the series. :)

She also plays in a new movie, called Planet Terror. Never seen it though.


I'm really glad I finished this. Halfway the drawing it started to get very difficult (OMFG the hair :frustrated:) and when things become difficult, I tend to quit immediatly.


The original drawing has shown her whole face, but I cut it off with Photoshop. LoL the right part looks kinda... bad. ^^;


Stuff I used:
  • 4H, 2H, H, HB, B, 2B & 3B mechanical pencils

  • unsharp 6B pencil... I lost my pencil sharpener :|

  • tissue for blending

  • crappy quality A4 sketchbook paper

  • Time spent: too much (meaning over 15 hours)



    One and only work in progress can be seen here!:
    Go check it out! :w00t:

    At first I thought she was Leighton Meester and then I remembered that I sometimes think Rose McGowan looks like Leighten Meester on Charmed. Anyways, beautiful drawing, very elegant! :rose:
