Off with their heads- Michonne

A drawing of my favorite character from the AMC series, The Walking Dead. The picture was drawn from a cover of Entertainment Weekly. Neither of these properties are mine and I only reproduced the character as a tribute to the character and the show. There will be no money made from the production of this drawing.

I used Strathmore 300 series paper and a 6B,8B and an HB pencil only.  Thanks for looking I hope you like the drawing.

Have a terrific day.

I found this deviation via ProjectComment/#projectcomment. You have done a terrific job with all the shading and details. They are both convincing and add a wonderful intricacy to your work. You can tell that you were enthusiastic about the subject to take all that extra time to add those details! There are really only a couple minor things I can suggest for improvement. There is a bit of her left arm that has been left white above the right elbow that is a bit visually confusing. The center of the glove could also be just a bit darker to help establish that it is further back than the fleshier parts of the palm (hope that makes sense, lol). Phenomenal work even with such minor things taken into account, really fantastic job!

Hi again from the tag via:iconprojectcomment:

So while I'm not familiar with the show with intricate understanding, this character I have seen often and sense she is formidable.
She also fits my tag of ''Stylish'' with the anti zombie gear...and that useful looking blade too. Like the reference to the cover image, and the use of black around the character gives a strong focus to her. Also want to say I admire the details put into the outfit!

The wrinkles/folds are quite spot on as they're convincing. The time to add the zippers on the pants and engravings on the gloves are noted. I'll like to say that the shading work with the pencils is well done, that is most noticed on the hair and the sword. c:  Only one crit I can mention [which is minor] is the space above is left white instead of shaded dark as the bottom portion.

Again minor :'D although that same space could reduce the dark areas from being overwhelming in this portrait. :) A fitting tribute to the character...and glad to have her name now!

Thanks for joining the tag c:

This is amazing. The details are very nicely done, along with the shading. I like how it tells a story in a way. I also like the circle around her. Everything about it I like. Hope you keep up the nice work. :)
