This drawing represents Nature.... not much to say about it ;) I just wanted to do a detailed work with pencil. The model is Laetitia Casta, a French model and actress.
HB and 4B pencils on A4 paper
20 hours approx.
Contrast adjusted in Photoshop CS because of the bad scan.
Done listening to Depeche Mode "Playing the Angel" and Within Temptation "Mother Earth" ;)
