The asymmetry of the eyes makes it really interesting, unbalanced but not ugly.

Absolutely beautiful, as usual! I really like the look of this one, not quite so finished if that makes sense - a little sketchy round the edges, but I really like that about it.

I love to swim, will this river lead to the ocean? This is very nice. Again I have to ask who this is. If this is an actress or someone famous then I wouldn't know who it is. I don''t pay attention to actresses and stuff like that, just musicians.

This is really good pencil work. I'd like to get that good with pencil. Have you got any advice on how I can improve? I plan to take art classes at school, but that will be at least a few months considering that this semester isn't over, then there's a two week break. If I can I think I'll get into drawing, but I also like painting. I'm kinda torn between the two now seeing what you've done with pencil. This is very beautiful.

eheh, thanks!XD swimming is a pretty nice activity, lol. This time the girl isn't none famous, just a random model I found in a picture. I use a lots of random models for my drawing, nothing in particoular.

I'm glad you liked this one, and about advices... the only thing I can reccomend to you is to keep on practicing, daily, and the more than you can. Darwing is like playing instruments, you just have to be patient and keep on trying, keep your hand in exercize!
Uhm, the best thing to do would be to pick up a class that can learn you about drawing and painting, even if in my opinion the base of every good art is a solid drawing!:)

Oh that's cool that its like no one in particular. I feel kinda dumb having to always ask you who it is in your pictures. For the famous people do you typically list the names of the people?

Yeah I'll definitely practice when I get to the point where I have something to practice. Right now I have like absolutely no skill with a pencil or brush. I used to be okay, and have a little skill, but that has all gone away. To me stuff like getting good at music or art is like taking a small amount of skill and building on it. You do have to have an initial tiny amount to build on. Right now I don't think I even have that. That's why I want to take classes, to get that initial amount of skill and training, then just practice like hell and build it up so it eventually is big and strong. So do you think I should start with drawing?

Nachan Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2009
yeah, when the drawing is supposed to be a portrait or a reference to a real person I usually put the name too, btw don't worry, I don't mind you asking about the subject!:)

uhm, well, you're right, I suppose you need to have some basics to start practicing and getting then better and better... my advice, in this case, is to start with a drawing class, then you can start building up all the rest!;)

Okay if yu don't mind a "who's this person?" every time you do someone I don't know I'll keep asking then.

Awesome thanks for the advice. I really want to do things the right way and develop the proper technique for drawing and painting. Depending how things go, I might try both during the same semester. That's a possibility. Probably want to just start with the drawing though.

Bellisismo attacco d'arte!=D
Quando si ha l'ispirazione si disegnerebbe ovunque...! Mi hai ricordato quella volta durante la verifica di latino, avevo finito ancora prima di iniziare perché non sapevo niente, e allora mi sono messo a disegnare sul banco e alla fine il risultato non era niente male xD una foto prima di cancellarlo e poi ho consegnato i fogli :P

ahah, vero, io disegnavo tantissimo sui banchi e sui libri di scuola proprio, soprattutto alle scuole medie, avevo il banco coperto di disegni bellissimi, pfff, che peccato non poterseli portare a casa!ò_ò

The eyes are beautiful and stunning. same goes for the lips and nose.
But i think you should work a little bit for hair. A great drawing overall.

Lovely, lovely, and lovely. I adore the line development within the hair, a gradual tone build up.
Your technique flatters this piece ever more.
