Lisa

I felt a bit guilty over piebald lisa, that I hadn't really done a good job on it, so I took another go - same model and photographer - but this time a different pic: [link]

I used hb for the face and 9B for the hair. It's on sketch paper - not the best for this, but I'm trying to use up some existing stuff and we're on something of an economy drive. One of these days I'll have to try to figure out how to make some money from art: I'm not looking for a living, just enough to keep me in materials. Ah well, I suppose that's me and about 99% of DevArt.

I think it's finished, but if anyone wants to suggest some tweaks ...

:edit - uploaded a scan without the great big line from the bottom of the paper :)

:another edit - tweaked image, following some helpful advice on ArtPapa.

Its her eyes, you drew them so well, there is so much depth. The lines and shadows are great too, really nice work. Well done :clap:

Thank you. I don't know the person, but she seems as though there is some depth to her.

A very photographic feel this one has! :clap: I love the pout she has, it adds some interest and is what attracted me to it. :)

She is very photogenic - there are some more recent ones in 's gallery. Great photos.

You don't usually use sketch paper? Do you use that really expensive high rag content stuff then?

I'm still exploring. Bristol Vellum seems ok - that's my 'good stuff' at the moment. This was more for practice, so I was using up some sketch paper. Plain old cardstock seem quite good - I might go for that in future instead of a sketchpad. I like the idea of using the same paper all the time, so I'd like to find something both good and cheap :)

Thanks - I really liked the expression on the model. Subtle, but more than just a 'flat' photo.

I have not comments, I like the way it is!!!

Thankyou. I may tweak it a little more, but probably no drastic change, and I'll loave it awhile anyway, so I can come back with fresh eyes.

I got a great tip on hair though - to scratch out a highlight with a scalpel. I won't use it on this now, but I'm dying to try that one out.

Oh, that's a nice idea!!
