This is really good! :heart:

Will you be able to make more D.O. drawings? : D
Just in general, not for me specifically. 
FallThruStardust's avatar
I have quite a bit planned actually... Especially lately... D.O's been looking good since comeback! :D
I just can't promise any time frames on when I'll have more stuff done... I just draw when I can.

Yay!//Take your time. : )

:wow: really wow. Absolutely stunning! :faint:
And you have my full respect, because I told myself to never start a picture where is something "mirrored" -> means only double the trouble :D But I can see you have no such problem ^^
FallThruStardust's avatar
Not when it's Kai :D lol... I really wanted to get the glaring eyes... and it's interesting because the bottom mirrored image is not a perfect reflection, nor should it be...it's just slightly off. :D It definitely took longer. 4 hours instead of my normal 2. :)

So well executed! 
This is one of my favorites of yours!! 
FallThruStardust's avatar
Thank you! The second people started posting the scans of this image I just kept eyeing it and thinking "Yep, I'm drawing that one later" !! :D Why not when I can have 2 Kai's in the same drawing!? :D :D
The-Rmickey's avatar
EXACTLY! I have like a whole folder of the scans and I am so indecisive trying to pick one to draw lol
FallThruStardust's avatar
I have a portrait folder within my exo folder so that when one seems like a particularly good image, I'll duplicate it, crop it down to the ideal frame for a portrait and then save it for later reference. :D

Nice ! 
I do that sometimes too or I just go in and free sketch without the structure outline and foundation lol 
FallThruStardust's avatar
I'm not that great at freehand proportions... single feature like an eye, lips... hair... I can handle, but I rely heavily on reference pictures to get structure down, especially when dealing with recognizable people.

It's a lot different when I'm painting, but I don't tend to paint figures, at all.
The-Rmickey's avatar
I see ^^ 
If it is someone I am not familiar with I rely on the reference to get it down so that means breaking out the rulers and grids lol

But like my recent Kyungsoo sketch I did that one section at a time with only two parallel lines to help keep things straight XD 

If I can't work through a sketch with a ref and structured outline with shapes and so forth I just go in with a free hand proportion :3 Pretty much like the pictures on my instagram I did in my sketchbook >v< 

I don't really have a say so for what I draw, usually it just keeps stretching to random things that interest me lately ^^

I have this huge roll of canvas in my garage and I really want to grid out a painting of Kai, but I'm not sure if I want to take on a task that big at the moment. *drawings are so much quicker*
