Zooey Deschanel
(500 Days of Summer, Elf, Yes Man)
She's also in She & Him with M. Ward. And she's engaged to Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard.

This is the result of me over-abusing my 4B and my blending tissue. I'm not very happy with the outcome (I personally think it doesn't look anything like HER), and it took me way too long to finish. I would guess arounnnnd 7 hours (but then again I didn't actually time it... it probably seems like such a long time because it was very, very troublesome).

I fixed her face (meaning I would erase her nose or her eye and draw it again in a slightly different spot) an innumerable amount of times. I think it more difficult than usual because of the slight tilt of her head. Note to self: don't draw people who are too pretty, because it's too hard to get them to look right.

Anyways, she gave me a lot more trouble than EWAN did. I'm sorry, Zooey. It's not my fault your face is too perfectly proportional to copy onto paper.

Let's hope my next portrait isn't such a disaster?
(spoilers: it's proooobably going to be David Tennant. I'm excited :D)

also, LINKS are in caps because I can't figure out how to get them to show up in a different color.


  1. ah i love her, especially in 500 days of summer.
    you've drew her really well, it isn't a disaster!

  2. aww, i love this one! i could tell it was her as soon as i saw the eyes!
