Elizabeth Weir 2 by crysothemis Elizabeth Weir 2 by crysothemis
Been having trouble drawing Elizabeth, so this is mostly for practice. I'm not entirely happy with this one, but it's better than the first draft, anyway.

HB, 2B and carbon pencil, with some tweaking in Photoshop.

She looks kinda aged here, but beautiful nonetheless. :)

I have to agree with Miso...that it's the eyes and nose that are a bit off, but really, this is just simply gorgeous! To have such a talent like this is really wonderful....I love the whole series you've been doing. Keep up the great work!

I think you were a famous painter in another life..something among the lines of DaVinci or Michelangelo.

You are sooo talented. I am totally blown away. My fav so far is Teyla.
This ones is really good as well.
This picture is funny, coz I covered the left eye and I could totally see Weir, then uncovered and lost her. But still very life-like

Thanks! So glad you liked it. But yes, I need lots of practice, and Elizabeth is very, very hard to get. You don't want to see the draft I tore up, trust me. :D

Thank you!

People are very hard to draw because our brains are wired to recognize faces, so the least thing off, and we see it. Objects or animals don't need to be nearly as exact to look right....

As always, your shading and toning are superb. It's a gorgeous portrait piece, but...it's not quite Elizabeth. (sorry :tears:)I can't see what's off either, but I think it's the eyes and nose. The jawline and mouth are spot on and it's nice to see her smiling. I don't like the sultry-into-camera looks some of the promo shots of Torri have. Much rather see some expression there. (which is why I chose the "frightened bunny" look for Radek!) Respect to you for trying, have another go!:clap:

Thanks! And yes, it's just a practice piece, because I really haven't managed to capture Elizabeth properly yet. But maybe one of these days....

She's harder than Sheppard. There's just so much subtle form in her eyes, and then there's the whole make-up thing, which drives me crazy because it obscures the shape of her eyes. ;)

I'm with you on not wanting to draw standard promo pics. They just bore me -- I want some real emotion, not a pose.

Oh, and I saw your Zelenka. Very cool, must comment. I'm way behind on anything involving typing. :)

Oh I agree, Torri's make up doesn't help and most of the promo pictures of her are awful, or worse, they've airbrushed her eye lines out. I personally don't think that the Leader of such an Expedition would need to look like Barbie, she's a mature woman for God's sake! I need to find a nice pic to be inspired to draw it!
Thank you for the kind comments on Radek! :airborne:
