In response to your blog post on your profile (because I typed from the hip when I previously posted):
It's a good pic, though a different background would define her hair (the brown is too close in color to the black for me to distinguish on my screen, even with different tilt angles and lower brightness settings). You can get a sense of the character from the face, but a greater sense if the hair was featured better.
I like the shape of her eyes. Again, different from the Disney-like style you've adopted and limns a certain trait to her. Nit-pick: her left iris is sharply defined while her right iris is rough (like Crayola Crayon rough). That difference is the first thing that I noticed.
As far as I can tell, you've used the "snub" nose for the tan ladies you've painted (also your pic A Hobbit Girl), while the ladies who have the...paler...skin tone has the slim and protruding nose. Is this intentional or did you unconsciously choose to do this?
I absolutly agree concerning the backgroung. It's too subtile and in the end we cannot see the hair correctly. I think that my screen isn't calibrated correctly. I should check this
For the eyes, yes, it's still a speed painting, but you're right, I should try to take the time to make something more uniform next time
Then concerning the nose, no it's not intentional since my hobbit girl isn't a tan lady She's a red head she even has freckles. It's just that it's a backlighting drawing, that's the reason why she looks so "dark skinned". But baybe it's not understable, it was hard to use the color on this piece. And the nose is like this because I wanted her to look younger. She originally had a longer/thiner nose. When I've finished my drawing, I've made the nose and the eyes bigger. Because she looked too old
La texture donne vraiment un effet magnifique ! Les contrastes sont si beau aussi. Le bleu se marie bien et ressort bien par rapport aux teintes chaudes utilisés ! J'adore ( comme d'hab oui Ok... mais j'y peux rien ^^')
I think the is gorgeous. The texture of her skin, the way her hair becomes a frame for her face, how stark the turquoise is without looking odd and glaring.. I usually don't like portraits which are this close to the face, but this one really caught my attention So warm!
Lovely. She's so pretty and the turquoise really complements her skin color! I love how there's just the tiniest touch of turquoise above her eyes and the color of her lips is gorgeous too! Wonderful drawing!
C'est marrant, tu sais quoi?? Elle me rappelle ce personnage dans ce livre qui a un titre dont j'ai oublie le nom, enfin surtout la bouche, quoiqu'en fait les boucles d'oreilles me rappelle surtout cette actrice qui joue dans ce film, et puis ce regard on dirait cette chanteuse qui chante ce chant populaire des annees perdues.... Mais bon elle est chouette quand meme hein, tu devrais juste arreter de t'inspirer comme ca, soit plus creative, ose etre toi!!!
