Finally finished and scanned!
This was probably my most difficult drawing so far, it took me forever! :D

Process:
- I used a grid to draw the initial outline of the drawing with a mechanical pencil, 0,5 HB.
- Erased the grid. 
- Shaded with ballpoint pen.

Tools:
- Winsor&Newton A5 sketchbook 170gsm;
- Mechanical pencil, 0,5 HB;
- Regular eraser (to erase the grid);
- Black Bic Cristal Medium, Fine and Large ballpoint pens.
- Black Pentel BK77 Superb ballpoint pen.

Time: didn't count...

The size of the paper is A5, the drawing itself is 20x14cm or around 8x5.5 inches...

Olha-me só para isto. Quando penso que já não há trabalho que me vá espantar assim tanto, encontro um destes. A suavidade do sombreado é incrível, e isso é dizer pouco. Parece que os talentos a caneta vão crescendo por Portugal, já o `VianaArts também é inacreditável

Haha! :D Muito obrigado mesmo por estas palavras. O `VianaArts é fantástico, uma grande fonte de inspiração! Há muito talento em Portugal, com caneta e não só obviamente, mas às vezes parece que são dificeis de encontrar, a nossa projeção não é a mesma de alguém nascido nos Estados Unidos por exemplo...

Pois é, o que o homem consegue fazer com uma caneta é incrível, e para além do mais é muito simpático e dá óptimos conselhos. Quanto à menor projeção, tenho de concordar, mas tenho a certeza que o teu trabalho vai ser bastante visível e apreciado nos grupos em que o partilhas. De outra forma seria um desperdício.

Muito obrigado pelos elogios, tento ajudar dentro das minhas possibilidades e capacidades... O feedback que tenho costuma ser positivo, por vezes em maior quantidade, outras vezes nem tanto... Não faço disso uma grande preocupação mas acho que todos sonhamos secretamente um dia ser aclamados e ter uma legião de fãs! :)

Oh Vitor, you just keep getting better! Impressive rendition of such a lovely lady :) There is so much depth and vitality, and what makes it even crazier is that this is in pen!! I can't believe how soft it is. 

What did she (Ana?) say when she saw it? I'm sure she loved it! :D

Hi there Mel!
Thank you very much to begin with. I do try to get better with every drawing, I'm glad it shows! :)
She was getting impatient to be honest :D, but she absolutely loved it!
What did she say? She asked me when would I buy the frame? :D

Hey man :aww:
It certainly does, your control of contrast now is much, much better than when you started (obviously :p). 
Hahaha, I don't blame her! I'm so glad for you, but you should probably hunt down that frame sometime ;) Keep up the awesome effort! :)

I'm happy you talk about contrast because it was one of my main concerns in this drawing. Thank you for that! :)
It's better but there's still so much I have to learn about this particular matter... I find that contrast and value control is one of the main challenges on the way to improvement. 
I always appreciate your encouragement, thank you and have a nice week! ;)
