Audrey Tautou by shimoda7 Audrey Tautou by shimoda7
A friend asked me the other day why I never draw a celebrity. Now I'm not very fond of that but I thought it would be fun to do one, so I decided to draw this lovely picture of Audrey Tautou (Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain, The Da Vinci Code) that I'd seen some time ago.

The background of the original photo was dark but I left it white to bring out the contrast between the darker parts like her dress, hair and eyes (which are the actual beauty of the piece) against the light background. I like how it came out. Hope you like it too.

- graphite and Conté pencil on paper
- 30 x 30 cm
- about 20 hours


edit: Thank you all for the great comments and the favs! You guys are too kind.

Its funny. I "faved" this picture a long time ago. Years later, browsing through my favorites list it stood out to me! 

"Priceless" (Hors de prix) is one of my favorite movies. I didn't know of it at the time I favorited this picture, but its funny how you can love a picture and a movie separately.  My copy of the film is actually sitting next to my tv that's how much I love the movie. 

Anyways, love your art and this picture! Cheers!
