I dedicate this drawing to :iconakalilith: she has one of the most impressive traditional galleries on DA, be sure to check it out :D

This is a portrait of "Jane Zhang" aka "The Dolphin Princess"
She was given this nickname because Chinese musicians refer to the whistle register (one of her vocal abilities) as the dolphin vocal sound ^^

She came 3rd place in the 2005 Super Girl singing contest..

Example of her amazing vocals --> [link] ^^

She sang the theme song for the recent Hong Kong movie "Painted Skin".. I literally had this song on repeat for the whole time I drew her portrait :D

The theme song for "Painted Skin" ---> [link]

The movie's not bad either, if ur're into supernatural stuff :D

I must admit that I found her face pretty difficult to draw, so the likeness isn't quite there, but oh well nobody's perfect :D

Thanks guys for all the comments and faves on the WIP :)

Here are the stats :
Size A3 Bristol Smooth 250 gsm
Pencils: H for outline, mech 0.3 2H, H, HB, B, 0.5 4B, 0.7 HB, normal pencils 6H, 5H, 4H, 2H
Time: Unaccounted

Thanks in advance for all comments and faves ^^

Any questions feel free to PM me ^^

PS - To all ur haters (and Bitch hater R***Y), if u dun like what u see, dun waste ur time to comment, it's as simple as that..

Another PS - I've noticed a lot of Art thieving lately --> :iconpolaxe1994: I have reported this fucking idiot to DA twice already and nothing has been done, now u know WHY I think DA is STUPID..
Okay the situation has been sorted, but Fuckers like this need to be named and shamed..

3rd PS - I get a few of these every now and then, and I'll say it again, "If I wanna copy pics to "my heart's content" then I will, and If I wanna be creative then I will"
"If u think my copied drawings are boring, look elsewhere"

Nice work on the mouth and eyes. But gotta agree with the other comments about having more details in the clothing and face shading here. The nose looks a bit odd too.

ditto everyone on the eyes. But i think there needs to be way more value in the clothing, esp. where the hair comes over the shoulders over the bodice, and more detail on the front. So that it doesn't look like a flat drawing. Also in the face, though that would be a bit tricky because there wouldn't be as much shadow under a white cowl as there would a dark one. But all in all, impressive work once again.

Great work on the cloth folds, skin and face... her lips look plastic but that's all the gripes I have! :)

wow, this is a very pretty one again! just one thing: I think her nose looks a tiny bit swollen...? maybe it's the shadow?

The white draperies add an almost pearl-like shimmer to her face. Beautiful!
