Katniss Everdeen Portrait

Over the Christmas break, I got some "real" art pencils, meaning they're graded. I've never used them before, so I wanted to practice some techniques to get a general feel for them. What better way to do that than with an actual project? I thought Katniss would be fun to draw, so here are the various stages of her portrait:

Day 1: Outline and face.
2B, H, and 2H Staedtler pencils.

Day 2: Added some depth and detail.
Incorporated 6B, 4B, and 4H.

Day 3: Final portrait. Blending, background, finishing touches.
Also on my deviantart.

Overall, the project took around 10 hours. 
Now I can't even imagine doing any future drawings without this set of pencils. They're amazing.
