Ariana Grande by francoclun Ariana Grande by francoclun
This is a special commission. I don't really know the lovely lady in the drawing, but my son always follows the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious, in which she plays the role of Cat Valentine.
So he asked me to draw her for him, and this is the result.
Started on Saturday 29 of september 2012
Finished Sunday 07 of october 2012
Total 25 hours (quite fast for my standard)

Pencil on Fabriano water color paper 300 gr

I really love your art mister Clun! May I ask you what pencil you used to get such a deep black (And what are your favourite pencils)? Charcoal maybe? I would be grateful about your answer, it will really help me, thanks in advance!

Hi. I have Charcoal and I should try, but I never used them. I just use mechanical pencil 6b and normal pencil 9b with circulism technique. It shine and in order to avoid the effect I use also a dry brush :D

Thanks a lot. I'm afraid I'm not the right person to give you tips. I haven't studied art and for sure you can find a lot of drawers much better than me :D

blaftershez Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I didnt study art either but I had it like 2 years in school... I'm just wondering how did u get your greytones so smooth, I can't get them like that or are you using a blender tool? Check out my artwork if you dont know what I mean you can clearly see the lines in it of the pencil.

And I havent seen anyone better then you so far =)

You can avoid the 'lines' using circulism technique. It works well for the skin. Usually I don't use blender tool, when I do, I prefere dry brushes :D
