WIP, Day 2

1/31/2010 11:48:00 AM Posted In , Edit This 18 Comments »
Now I'm working back and forth between the hair and the face.  The hair is giving me a really  hard time, but I'm still enjoying the process.  When I compare my version with the original, I see so many things I did wrong, but then where's the surprise in that?  The next one I do will be in a larger sketch book.  I won't be able to get the whole drawing on the page.  What a good excuse (one of many,  I might add), to try doing it again when this one's finished!

Looking good still, Nancy.

But - you almost confused me. I went immediately to the bottom of the two and looked at it and said to myself, "what does she mean it won't fit."

Then I realized the top one was yours.

It's wonderful!

Oh, I like yours so much better. I'm sure the portrait was true to the real person, but I like that you made yours thinner, he does look gorgeous that way. Absolutely fantastic that way.

Very good...yours has an angelic innocence and think it could be the distance from the nostril to the bottom of her eye is longer on yours, plus her gaze on yours is directed upwards and his is directed straight across...love the gentle shading you've used!

Oh, Nancy! You're doing so good! This is wonderful! I see a few differences, but yours has the the more innocent face!

It looks great Nancy! I'm so impressed!

Alex said...

Like I said, something great is going to happen here.
And this one looks a little less serious, the eyes being wider and looking upwards make her looking a bit mischievous ^^ I like it!
