Sketch - Avril by starvingartist Sketch - Avril by starvingartist
After my exams, I just wanted to draw. And this was the first thing I did.

All the art-related work I've been doing this year has been either for income or for marks. So it's a great to just relax and do something purely for fun to unwind.

It's just a mechanical pencil sketch on plain bond paper. With my scanner being out of commission, I took a photograph of it with my friend's digital camera.

ADVIL IS A FREAKIN' POSER. WHY IS EVERYONE A WANNABE NOWADAYS? OMG IT'S SO ANNOYING. SHE'S A HYPOCRITE, TALKS CRAP ABOUT OTHER SINGERS THAT ARE BETTER, CAN'T PLAY THE GUITAR, CAN'T SING, AND CAN'T EVEN WRITE HER OWN SONGS.

Comment on the picture, rather then advertising your hate.

haha i like what this person said:
nice drawing but who Avril is she a friend of your?

I know, it's cause she's never heard of her but I thought it was cute! Anywho, I'm not a drawing person but I stand in amazement of people (and you) who can do such realistic art. Ya really captured her there (I like the eyes, looks just like the crazy set she's got on her!). And folks, let's not get in an Avril debate here... all I can say is O'Canada!! :canadaflag:

WOW!!! Very nice drawing! I strongly dislike Avril because of her snotty attitude and disloyality to her fans (although i like a couple songs by her) but this is a great pic! I like the facial proportions and the shading, which came out very nicely. This deserves to be in the favorites section. Keep up the good work!!

I like Avril, but even whether I did or not, you have to admire this sketch for it's technical accuracy.

You have a great great talent. I love pencil sketches that look sketched. If that makes sense to you. Normally mine are more of the clean line style, and I just wish I could draw like this.

Personally, I don't like Avril...

But still, it's a great drawing. I think the gray BG (intentionally caused or othewrwise) gives it a nice feel... Keep it up...

Haha, ya, sorry but I'm not an Avril fan either... but I just wanted to leave a comment because I think that's a really great sketch. I always wished I could adopt a style like that. It's really natural, looks kind of like you didn't spend too much time on it (in a good way - yeah?). Kind of rough and quick. And it's a great portrait too. I think I could've guessed who it's supposed to be without looking at the title.

I have to say that I too am an Avril hater, but this sketch is nothing but amazing. Mechanical pencil is rough sometimes, but can also be great if you know what you're doing, and you obviously do.

It turned out really well, great job. I'd kill to be able to draw people realistically like that. Unfortunately, I'd bet everyone I even remotely know would beg me for portraits.

On a random note, congrats for the deviant-of-the-month award. =)

Nice drawing, but I think the best way to capture her likeness would be to have her storming like Godzilla over the Canadian border to devour Seattle whole. And she would also have a large lizard tail, shoot fire from her eyes, and be carrying a large grocery bag of milk and granola bars to give to the orphainage because one of those kids bought her CD. Then she would eat the orphainage, too.

Nah, it's just good as is. A fine sketch. But do consider the shooting fire out of the eyes.
