Final Fantasy XIII: Serah by TayleRX Final Fantasy XIII: Serah by TayleRX
Helloo. Here's Serah from Final Fantasy XIII requested by :iconhello-kitty-1990:. I hope you like it :D

First of all, I'm very proud of this drawing. The plan here was to make her skin look very smooth just like in the reference picture and add more depth to shading by using charcoal pencil and normal b pencils. I think I've never managed to achieve such smoothness before so I'm really glad that I'm making progress. The key here was to blend as much shading as possible to achieve this smoothness and use kneaded eraser to highlight specific parts of the face. Anyway, here it is and as always I'm awaiting your comments :D

Time: 18 hours
3H, 4H, HB, 4B, 5B pencils
0.3, 0.5 and 0.7 mechanical pencils
Paper stumps and tortillions
Kneaded Eraser

Thanks for the proposition but I wonder if these clients look for fanart as well. My current work is usually based on the reference picture so I don't know if it's applicable as well :D
