Cho Chang? by Maitia Cho Chang? by Maitia
This all started because I was searching for reference photos at google because I'm rubbish at drawing asian faces and eyes in particular. I happened to come across this great photo of Japanese model Takako Kitahara and I just had to try and draw her.

I only just realized now that she actually looks exactly how I've always pictured Cho Chang. I'm sorry but Katie Leung just never screamed Cho at me. Dunno why because she's certainly not a bad actress. In fact, I think she's better cast than, say, Gary Oldman, Michael Gambon and Alan Rickman, all of whom are great actors, but they're just not working for me. But I'll rant about that somewhere else.

i agree about katie leung - i thought it was a good effort but she was a bit too soft in my opinion! this is a beautiful drawing :)

Thank you very much, you're very sweet.
Yeah, she just wasn't really Cho Chang, in my opinion. But each of us of course has their own idea of just how she is and what she looks like, so I don't envy the people who have to make the big decisions concerning the movies. What a pressure...

Tak skal du have.
Det var også rigtig skønt at få lov at tegne asiatiske øjne. Jeg blev bare for doven til sidst, så hun får ikke mere hår end hun allerede har.
