Audrey Hepburn by carlotta-guidicelli Audrey Hepburn by carlotta-guidicelli
This is the best photo you'll get of the whole thing...It looks way better in life, but what can you do. I took this picture with our older camera. I have no idea what it is, but it's not digital :P

This is much lighter than the real drawing is. To get a feel of the real skintone, you can look at [link]

This got Grand Champion at the county fair, and is going to be entered in the state fair along with 'Timeless.' I hope they do well :)

This drawing is really different from the reference. I did a lot of things kinda differently, unintentionally :P But even though I messed up a lot, I think it still looks like Audrey. Which is amazing :XD:

I used woodless graphites (2B, 4B, 6B) and tissue paper for blending. But I mainly used a mech. pencil. I lurv them :)

This was started May 12 and finished by the end of June.

If I didn't know you were an artist, I would've guessed that it was an old photograph.

This is gorgeous! Very few people can draw Audrey, and have it look just like her.
Great work!

Ok! Amazing likeness of Audrey Hepburn. I didn't read the title but I was able to identify her none the less, and that's saying something. Usually without a labe

really good catch of her face. nice smooth highlights. there is something that i don't like in her hand.like half of her forefinger is missing,maybe it's only my impression.
