Impatience by IleanaHunter Impatience by IleanaHunter
This is inspired by the WIPs I usually like to upload.

As I always say, my habit is to keep drawings covered to prevent smudging and I let nothing touch the paper except more protective paper! But, at least twice while doing this, I got annoyed with myself at first glance for putting pencils straight on the drawing paper. Turned out I'd just tromp-ed my own oeil.

The eyes belong to the lovely Rachel: [link]

This is pencil (2B to 6B) on extra smooth Bristol board, 8 x 11".

So glassy and lifelike.  At first I thought this drawing must have been larger in life (for you to get that much detail) but the pencils reveal the true size. You have an amazing talent. :aww:

Hello...wonderful work!!!  Quick question..you linked to a model mayhem profile, do you shoot your own reference or do the models provide you images from other photographers to work from... Thank-you in advance. If you would prefer to discuss this elsewhere feel free to shoot me a note.
Big fan!!!

Ileana, You are wonderful. I am so impressed with your work, I am almost in shock. It is really, really good. I believe I have found a new hero to worship, watching the work you do and I will enjoy studying the work. I am a huge Linda Huber fan, but I think you may be better. I love your work and plan to look at all of it closely when my time allows. Amazing stuff. Keep it up.
