Lady Wearing Hijab - Pen Drawing

in Sketchbooklast month


I tried improving my draping skills by drawing this lady wearing Hijab. I definitely can't remember the last time I focused on working on a folded cloth or sheet because most of my concentrations have been on the face and facial expressions.

I like how those fabrics fall and fold round her face. Makes her appear anonymous. The drawing was done with a blue ballpoint pen on a cardboard paper. I used cross hatching technique to create this piece. Below are my steps:




Thank you.


You are so skillful with pen. Great! Generally I do not use it because it cannot be erased :)

Hi, I think you should give it a try. It helps you to be precise when drawing.

I remember my Muslim friends. Happy Ramadan to all of them. Great work bro

Yeah, happy Ramadan to them.
