This is my take on Hazel Grace, a main character from what will probably become one of my favorite books, The Fault in Our Stars. I think she's such a beautiful character, and this popped into my imagination so I had to put it into being. I just want to say here, she's not in a hospital bed - she's in Oranjee with Augustus. I'm kind of drawing this through Augustus' eyes so that's why she kind of has an intense stare (and she's naked).
I still think I'm a novice with hair. Practice practice. I've never drawn skin this way, you know, by using several tones and branching out from just adding white for light and black for darker tones. Her eyes are hazel, ho ho ho. I still want to work on the lips, and perhaps her ear, though I'm generally happy with this drawing. Maybe I'll put it in as my first portfolio drawing for university. The toughest part of this was the pillow...I don't know. It was annoying and boring and I had no patience for it. I'll probably end up fixing that too. I don't want to leave this drawing - it has some potential to be even better.
