My daughter Anna Grace, both prismacolor pencil on black A3 paper, both drawings took a lot longer than usual. AnnaCult 6 days, AnnaGrace 20 days.
Being your own daughter I guess does make a difference.
When drawing a stranger, it doesn't matter to me if they are not recognizable as long as they look "nice", but I did want people to recognize Anna, especially Anna.
Anna was disappointed with the first (AnnaCult) because it was not "pretty" as she is like a lot of 4 year olds, a Princess her self.
AnnaCult, I wanted to be dark, with a "fire starter" "shining" feel to it. AnnaGrace, being more innocent.
