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. :)

Guess what, I can't see anything of that. It's just well done.

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....
