Maggie Q

Nicole's Drawing Evolution

In case you don’t know who this is, she’s the star of CW’s “Nikita”, which I’ve never seen. But she is in Mission: Impossible III, which I enjoy. And I admit, it’s not a perfect likeness to her. but it was still fun to draw. I used 2B, 4B, and 6B pencil and tortillon for some blending.
