Sophia Loren by Veiz Sophia Loren by Veiz
This one is dedicated to :iconcrayonmaniac:
I always wanted to do some portraits of the golden age movie-icons! And when Christine started doing hers, I got just the inspiration I needed to kick off. Took me awhile to get going, but here's one of my fav's, Sophia Loren. I plan to do a few others over time too. Richard Burton, Gregory Peck, Jean Simmons, Gary Cooper, Ava Gardner, Ingrid Bergman etc.etc...
There are really so many legends to choose among!
But as a hardcore movie fan, I really enjoyed this one.
Hope you like it, Christine!
Tools were mechanical pencils 0.3, 0.5. a woodless Monolith graphite 9b from Cretacolor (and this one is awesome!)
blendingstick and erasers.
times used, about 25 hours.
Photo for reference.

Wow! What to add all that has been said already...? This is a wonderful work! She's posing in ĞL'Homme de la Manchağ, right? The black tones render Sophia Loren's soul, if I may say. Is that graphite 9b?

Veiz Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Not sure what in spesific she was posing for in this pic, but you may be correct. And yes, a lot of use of the 9b pencil. That's the one I'm using most of in my drawings. Good thing I have a big stock on those.
Thank you so much for the nice comment, and also big thanks for faving!:iconcheerplz:
