This is just so beautiful and inspiring QwQ   Surely your draws without coloring are already so nice to look at, but the way you use coloring and shading is just amazing (>v<)/ Hope that I can draw like you someday

I am still unsure how I feel about this piece. There is something unsettling about the composition. Or maybe it's the subject that I'm unsure of. Or maybe I don't like lemonade. I don't know. But something in this piece has me perplexed.

The hash texture in the background is interesting. Very nice touch.

The brush effects all over the subject is great. The underchin shadow is an especially good effect that many artists tend to gloss over.

Lemons. Lemons. I guess they are an allusion to brightness and sunshine and lemonade?

Now, that hair. I know the "trick" to making hair look like it curls. I know the techniques to draw hair on any head. Knowledge, however, does not mean I know WHEN to apply these skills. In this piece the curl technique works best at the edges where the background peeks through the hair. As soon as you get into the thick of the hair a new technique must be applied. I love the way you made the hair look like it is a tighter curl by just applying curves. Lots and lots of little curves...holy crap, this must have taken a long time! This might have been on par with pointilism (painting with dots?).

Anyways, even if the mass of hair is defying the laws of physics this is still an impressive piece overall.

And I'm still confused.

thanks so much for your thoughtful comment :) in general i always feel like, when drawing hair, it's best to focus on the silhouette / edges! so in this case i put the most time into the curls that are silhouetted against the background! for the 'mass' of hair it's more a question of lots of scribbly lines and some strategic highlights. it is indeed a different process. it's time-consuming but very relaxing for me :)
