Jessica Alba - SINful... by KJS-1 Jessica Alba - SINful... by KJS-1
HAPPY NEW YEAR! First drawing of the year. Hope you all are doing well...keeping all your new year's resolutions???

It's Jessica Alba as Nancy Callahan from Sin City...

This has been a drawing I've been wanting to do for a long time...probably since the movie came out eons ago!

I have to say that I spent quite a bit of time on this one due to all the detail in the clothing. Was not looking forward to drawing all the rhinestones on her bra...but the most challenging part of the drawing was the lasso, to my surprise! Maybe because I was sort of losing motivation on the drawing and just wanted to get it finished!

Anyways, hope you guys enjoy this one!...now on to the next!

Pencil on Bristol - Vellum Finish
HB, 6B and Blending Stump
Total Hours: Didn't really keep track this time

Wow, it's really detailed, and the contrast is so well done. The finger of the right hand is a little big, and the lasso really bright, but wow. Keep up the good work!

Wow, this is absolutely stunning. A true masterpiece. T.T
The only critique I'd have to say is that her looks look a little larger than they should. At least from the photos of her I've seen.

Other than that, it's extremely recognizable, and with an awesome range in tone and shade. +fave
