I've been struggling to draw her for ages.. She just has such distinctive features and I can't capture them quite right.. Meh. Does anyone know what's wrong with it??? I can't figure it out. Like a redlines would be super helpful, if at all possible. Thank you (:

oooh so you're a game of thrones fan?
And it's hard for me to say without having recently watched the show. As far as I can tell she looks great

I haven't watched the show recently either... I'm somewhere in season 3. Waiting on my boyfriend to catch up haha.

A beautiful portrait! I really like the way you drew her hair. :love:
As for what might be "wrong" with it, I think there's a few small things that accumulate and lead to the drawing not quite looking like the reference. I think it's mostly her eyes and eyebrows, which I think could be a tad higher. I also feel like her mouth could be little bit higher, and her right jaw a tiny bit wider where it leads to the ear. It also looks like a bit of her left temple and brow is missing, but that could be me seeing things.
All in all I think you did a really great job with drawing her unique features! Keep it up!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful critique (: 
I think that you're definitely right - the main issue here is her eyes/brow. They're too low, giving her a kind of derpy look. But the other things you pointed out, the jaw, mouth, temple, are all great things that I hadn't noticed before. Hmm. I may have to go through and fix this piece, after all!!

Thank you again!!

You captured her pretty well, actually. =) The biggest difference I see are her eyes, which someone already mentioned in the other comments (and for the most part they're still very accurate).

Thank you (: By eyes, do you mean the color of them? 
Ranefea's avatar
You're welcome. =)

More the size and shape. They're very similar to the original but they seem a tad bigger and more open.

That makes sense (: thank you!
