Bette Davis by casparofambrose Bette Davis by casparofambrose
Bette Davis is my favorite actress and when I saw the reference for this I had to try it. I love that she’s looking away yet her eyes are still so gripping as if she were staring straight into the camera. Also, I like that you can see the natural shape of her lips, which was usually obscured by the way she wore her lipstick. I spent forever working on this but I so enjoyed taking my time with it. First time doing pearls – I think they look more like pebbles, but it’s not horrible. Oddly, this is also the first time in ages that I can recall doing light hair, which is so much more complicated than dark hair!

For this one I used #2 pencils, 6B-8B pencils, a white vinyl eraser, q-tips, and kleenex.
