Drawing of Mena Suvari Pic, done in regular paper and ebony pencil (I ran out of that fancy textured paper and charcoal pencil). Not too well done, kinda rushed and unpolished, but I've been away for a while and I wanted to submit something. The hair had more texture but my scanner did away with that, it also made the entire drawing lighter. I guess it doesn't matter, Mena looks great no matter how badly i screw up. I can just say this is my interpretation of the picture (hey it worked in art class). Anyway, comments critizisms...

I'm not really sure. I drew it almost three years ago, but I think it was probably some online gallery somewhere.

The eyes are fantastic. Sure it's a little unpolished but it's still awesome. I love the expression. It's good to see other people who do traditional portraits. Very fine work indeed.

I really dig the high contrast, and the simplicity of this. I think the eyes look great... Her nose looks a bit too broad on the lower part. . . other than that. . .

yes. she's so innocent with those wide eyes. I like the hair actually, it gives the whole pic a feel of powerful contrast and it highlights her face once more.

Great drawing. Kind of very photorealistic and good emotional expression. Especially the eyes ( and that's meant so ) look wonderful. I like her surprised, kind of helpless look very much. It's astonishing how you get this on the one hand absent, on the other ones tensed look working together. What I've to critizice a bit is the way you draw her nose. There's not enough depth and is seems to large for her soft face. And the area above her nose is smeared a bit with pencildust, but that's a problem I also always have to fight against while drawing a picture. But that are just details standing lonely against a beautiful and origin drawing.

hey interpetaton is what art is all about.

besides, if you copy it exactly, whats to distinguish the image from a photograph? it's those interpetations that make your art your art and set it apart from the others.

now i've got that off my chest, it's a good little pencil drawing.
