I wouldn't call it a demo.... more like practise. Illustrating Sophia Loren

I came across this photo on the web and instantly fell in love with the pose and inspired to draw it.
So I thought I'd share how the illustration progresses.

For the Pencil... I to work out the structure before moving on to colour. To me the drawing is drawn from the shadows and I like to know where my darkest areas are. 
(I'm not completely happy with the eyes. I hope to rectify it as I keep working on the tonal.)

To be honest this is just practise... so I might not care to have  the tightest of likenesses. Excuses... excuses.

My Studio

Since I just missed out on a contract for this week. I took the time to re-organize my office.
Now I just need a longer DVI cable to hook up the second monitor.
