Zooey Deschanel Drawing by Live4ArtInLA Zooey Deschanel Drawing by Live4ArtInLA
Prismacolor pencils on Strathmore. Top, photo of drawing - not all pencils used shown. Bottom, partial scan of drawing. Not too keen on posting full scans anymore. :::shakes fist at art piracy pirates:::

Things I learned while drawing this:

A) Zooey Deschanel is very difficult to convey unless she is in shown in typical Zooey Deschanel mode, aka: full bangs and wide-eyed.

B) Glasses (anything with structure) are a pain in the arse to draw.

C) ‘Zooey Deschanel’ is fun to say out loud.

Amazing! It is really hard to draw Zooey's beautiful eyes, but you actually manage to do so (:

I know you get questions all the time, but:

Do you use any type of blenders when you draw?

:iconlive4artinla:
Live4ArtInLA Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
Yes, a colourless blending pencil. Sometimes I burnish with a white or light colour pencil.

A, B, and C are all totally true... without the bangs, Zooey can slide towards Katy Perry in terms of resemblance.

A) Did you use another reference for the hair or...?
B) Could you use a tutorial/explain in THOROUGH detail how to shade in the glasses?
C) Could you give me the colors you used on this?
D) Could you explain how to use colored pencils in detail (how to use them in detailing eyes, lips, hair, etc.)

P.S. I know this all seems like a lot, but just I know surely that there are many others who wish for this stuff on a daily basis from you.
