Ok.. it's only one drawing for right now. I'm still trying to get back into the swing of things, so.... It's the first time I've picked up a pencil & sketchbook in four or five years....be kind? lol...


On this one - *sigh* her face is a bit.. out of proportion from the original picture, but hey.... Karma points to whoever can tell me who it is! *grins*

:wave: LadyPhoenix!

First off, very nice rendering--especially since you haven't touched pencils in years!

Secondly, while there is a sense of familiarity about this lady; I'm not sure who she is...
However, she does remind me of a very young Jaclyn Smith.

Hint: She sings - I just got her cd... and wow... I love it lol. Thanks by the way DY... It was really hard to do - I'm so afraid of messing up or that I'm not as good as I was *sad smile*

DY - she's got a wonderful voice, very mellow.

Nope... Still don't know who she is... Does she sound anything like Natalie Merchant?

Excellent! Good to see another sketchbook started. :) And now for the crits:

Good line work. The first thing that jumped out at me was the lip. It needs to be refined. Its a little pooched out on the right side. The work on the eyes is done well. Except, the lashes. The usually start out at the outside edges.

Keep going and post MORE! Hope the crits help!

That was a good drawing, but I thought it was Julia Roberts!
Keep up the good work!
