Wow, I am SOOO flippin' proud of this -- primarily because it actually looks like KLS for a change, and because I haven't been able to draw worth a toot in YEARS! *hugs self* Yaaay, I might be getting my "powers" back, hehehe.

Anywhos, this is Rachel Drummond, one of my absolute favorite KLS characters. :) She was a governess for Nora and Jamison Collins at Collinwood, and she SO should've gotten together with Tim Shaw. *sighs unhappily* Curse you, Barnabas!! Oh! And Dirk!! T_T

Currently watching the show (for the first time), and I just finished the 1897 storyline. Rachel was awesome and you did a really good job here, capturing her facial features. I especially love the nose and mouth. Nice work!

Thank you! :) KLS was basically my favorite actress, so all of her characters were destined to be my fave. I had a soft spot for Rachel and Tim, especially.

Hmm.... It's very good, the hair is utterly awsome, but I think the only problem I can nail down is the cheekbones. Since I don't know this character I don't know whether she has a facial issue or not, but if you look in the mirror you can see that your silloutte ( I proboly spelled it wrong lol) goes IN for you eye- there's an indention- and your cheekbones seem to jutt out. Well, at least mine do. >.<

LOL Uuuh, I'd have to look at the image again, but I know I'm not perfect by a long-shot, so that wouldn't surprise me. lol The actress is lovely, so I don't think she has any facial issues, so it's just me and my drawing issues. :-P Thanks for pointing that out.

Wow, thaaanks! :) I haven't had any art classes since high school, so my realism skills went waaaaay downhill, so that really means a lot. :-D I'm posting the pic as we speak, hehe.

I really like this one!!
It looks so realistic and you managed to concentrate on what is essential to make it look like that... if that was understandable now... sorry, I guess not. >-<
I kind of envy you that you managed to draw the nose so perfectly from this angle... cause I find that almost impossible. >-< When I'd try to draw something like this she'd end up having a pig's nose. X_X
Anyway, this is lovely!

Awww, hahaha, I'm sure you don't end up with a pig nose! :-P And for some reason three quarter and profile angles are easiest for me to draw...my frontals suck. :( But thanks! This is actually the same actress as the one I drew before. :)
VergesseneTraenen's avatar
Oooh, I do. I really do.
Profile is easiest for me I guess. *always draws Johnny Depp in profile*
Frontal is.... hard. O_o the faces usually end up looking really bizarre...

I recognized her! She's pu-retty! And so is the pic! :D

woah, that's good! Very realistic looking! o_o
SweetFaith06's avatar
Aww, well thanks! <3 I love Rachel...she rocks my Dark Shadows socks. :-P I wanted to draw her with the man she SHOULD'VE ended up with, but alas, my drawing skills went saoidhnwqoidhnaoihdqoihf and wouldn't let me. -_-' lol

You're welcome! I think my mom got more Dark Shadows comic books. XD

saoidhnwqoidhnaoihdqoihf? Your skills have quite a mouth.
SweetFaith06's avatar
LOL Seriously?? :-P I've read like...an excerpt from one of the comic books, and they're definitely not as good as the show. They're "meh"-worthy. lol I'm just so excited about the movie, bwauaaaahashaishiuoash :-D
Haha, well...heh. -_-' My drawing skills didn't say that, they went "sadnaisodhnaiodshnaiohd", like as in they went the way of the dodo. ^^; That's my not so abridged version of it, eheh.

WOW!

Color me extremely impressed!

The shading in her hair is just gorgeous, her expression is perfect.

Awesome, awesome job!
SweetFaith06's avatar
Awww, thaaanks! <3 I love Rachel, so I'm glad I was actually able to pull this off. Originally I tried doing her and Tim when she was dying, but yeah...wasn't working. lol I might try again at another time, but we'll see. :-P I have a friend who wants me to try Tim, and Rachel/Tim, and all these other things, so we'll see what happens, hehe.

O-M-G!!! Rachel just linked me to this. This is gorgeous! By far, this is your best yet!! And, yes, you were right. I DO want a Willie/Maggie drawing. :) This is an automatic fave for me. ~DJ
SweetFaith06's avatar
LOL!!!! Thanks so much! ^^ Although now that I've seen it in the morning light, a couple things are pissing me off about the facial structure, but meh...I'll get over it. ;0P

Amazing! I love this realism drawing, it is simply gorgeous! thank you for sharing!
SweetFaith06's avatar
<3 Awww, thanks so much! ^-^ Now that I've seen it in the morning light, I see some issues, but...oh well! :)
ragettisbride's avatar
I know how that is! XD I look at some of my work, and I'm like, "I put this on DA :O" but I do really like this one, it's very lifelike!
SweetFaith06's avatar
LOL! Well thanks! There's no way in heck I'm putting the reference pic on here lest it make it look bad, hehehe. ;-P
ragettisbride's avatar
XD I know what you mean! I did a life-study of Remy LeBeau, with Steve Valentine as the Ref, and I was thinking, "Ok, it's FINE if you don't compare it to the REAL picture!" XD
SweetFaith06's avatar
LOL! Well fortunately I don't know either of those people, so I would've been fooled either way. ;0P
