Free as a bird by AngelasPortraits Free as a bird by AngelasPortraits
It was my turn to pick the reference photo this month for :icondraw-along:
I picked this
Thank you to :iconrafaxx: for the wonderful stock:heart:

Kind of out of my comfort zone with this one, I'm not used to changing refs and adding shadows etc.

This image is supposed to be the little girl saying goodbye to her beloved pet, she loves him so much but she knows that he should be flying free, not caged up .... a little corny, I know, but oh well:giggle:

A3 Bristol Board Extra Smooth
Graphite pencils
mechanical pencil
tortillons
tissues
pencil eraser

Many thanks for looking:heart::blowkiss:

You captured everything so well, especially the face and the dark hair around. What happened to the hat?

The hat looks flat. More flat than the rest that is outstandingly 3D.
