I've been doing a fair bit of drawing lately. Mostly out of sheer boredom.

What happened was, one day, I had absolutely nothing to do. So I picked up the DVD cover of my Dear Frankie movie, my sketch book, and set to work.

Several hours later, the result came out as show below:

It doesn't really resemble the models at all, but hey! I was way better than I thought I was, and I realized that I actually knew how to draw lighting. MIRACLE. OF. MIRACLES. I had never attempted anything like realistic drawing before, so I was pretty proud of myself.

So then, I decided that of COURSE I had to draw the love of my life next...

I was pretty pleased with this one too. I mean, it actually looks like him! Also, it nearly cured me of my obsession. Nearly. If you spend an hour trying to draw his nose properly, you'll find you don't love it quite as much as you used to.

Then it all went downhill from there.

Doesn't look ANYTHING like her.

But I learnt how to do realistic-ish hair.

This one is sort of painful to talk about. Basically, after hours and hours of trying to fix her face, I gave up and continued on with the rest of her.



I don't know, what do you think? Should I just quit while I'm ahead?


  1. OH MY GOSH... Tangled... Repunzel.... you should make me one.... oh my gosh that's amazingly beautiful!!!!! <3

  2. Quit? I hope you're kidding. Rapunzel looks just like her, in my opinion, and Thornton's nose is excellent (and I know how hard noses are to draw!). Keep it up!! :)

  3. Don't quit!! Your drawing of Thornton is AMAZING!!

  4. I love your drawing of Thornton! You're really good! :)

  5. I love your drawings. I cannot draw to save my life! I love your Richard Armitage/Mr. Thornton drawing! It really looks like him!! :)

  6. I like them! I was wondering if you were ever going to show me your drawing of Rapunzel, but now that you have I'm content.
    WHAT QUIT? after only five? no! sorry you're not allowed my dear. Your drawings are nice I (humbly... kinda) say keep at it.

  7. The Thornton drawing. Rapunzel. And Piglet.

    Quit the combination of favorites :-)


  8. DON'T STOP! Im an artist myself, and I couldn't draw such a realistic face if my life depended on it! Keep going on it!

  9. so. good. I'm jealous of your shading abilities. I can't draw *anything* realistic.
