So...it's finished, but I am not happy with the final results at all. I was even debating on posting it or not. I think the darkness of the shadows got a little weird. In the original, half of her face was hidden in shadows. I think it just looks dirty now!

Oh well. Hopefully my next drawing will turn out better!

I'm so glad you decided to post this after all, because I love it! To me the shadows don't look weird at all, and the eyes, eyebrows, and lips turned out beautifully! Very life-like. :heart:

Ugh...don't get me started. Makes me frown just looking at it. I was really unhappy with the way it turned out. Oh well! By the way, I'm glad that you've become a fan! But, you should check out my other drawings...they're way better!!

That is too kind. Thank you for saying that. It's the shading/lighting. It just really bugs me...I even tried to fix it, but it still doesn't look right to me.

icondiamond4girl: i can see where she's getting at .. the ref seemed like it wasnt the best thing to draw i know from experience that a bad ref can def screw you over

so you def get points for this as its actually an awsome drawing dispite your doubts ...

It was just a bad choice of ref. It can happen sometimes. Something that looks good on a photo may not always look that good when drawn. Technically, the drawings is really good as always. Very nice detail and shading and all, but yeah, looks kinda strange, I could not recognize her in a sec and I know her face quite good. Don't worry about one drawing that didn't really turned out as you hoped, blame the ref! :lol: Glad you showed it to us though. :)
