Pencil Drawing of Ana Ivanovic

Here’s my realistic drawing of the famous Serbian tennis player – Ana Ivanović, more famous for her looks than her tennis some would say. 😛 The most challenging part was probably the hair, although the face required some patience as well.

    It astounds me when someone can draw a photograph with a pencil…and it looks like a photograph. And, you say the hair was challenging? Why wouldn’t the face be more challenging? Or, fingers?

    She does have a pretty face. ‘Looks a bit like Olivia Munn.


    • I don’t know, maybe because I expected the hair to be easier, but it takes time to give it volume and make it look organic. The tricky thing about the face was the lighting because of the hat.

        True. Of all parts, I suppose the hair requires the most pencil strokes to look “threaded” unless you get decisive and simpler with light/dark space.

        Heck, any part of this would be tricky for me. At least, trying to make it look as realistic as you did. My skills look so pale in comparison. I try, but my work is more…cartoon-ish.
