my latest art adventure

I started this waaaaay before we moved, but since I packed all my art things first, I forgot about it for a while. Then, when I got bored one day last week, I decided to go ahead and finish it up. It took me around three or four days, I think. The eyes refused (and still refuse) to look right, I CAN'T draw cloth, and I pretty much killed my 4B pencil (my 6B disappeared and didn't reappear until last night).

Anyway. I learned how to draw two different kinds of material. Silk (failll), and whatever her hood is made out of. You can tell, I was extra careful on the left side, but then I got tired of being careful and just kind of scribbled, so it looks a lot worse. Also I had to digitally blow up her eyes, because they were way too small once I scanned them, only now I'm not sure if it looks better or worse.

But anyway!

  1. Hey, I think you did a really good job! I know I wouldn't even get close to this good, at this point. And blowing up her eyes looks just right. :)


  2. That's awesome, Gwen! You did really good job on the fabrics and the shading (the two points that are non-existent in my drawings). And her eyes are great!
    Wish I could draw something half as good as that...

  3. Oh wow, Gwen, that's gorgeous! You did awesomely, I literally cannot draw cloth. :(

  4. Gwen, this is incredible! You did a wonderful job. :)

  5. I have to say this is great!!! I could never ever draw anything any were near as good as this. I really looks like Marian! I love it! :)

  6. Cool! I could tell who it is right away! Eyes are so hard to do, but those eyes are definitely hers.
    We're on a Robin Hood binge right now . . . just pretending the 3rd season doesn't exist. :(
    Keep drawing! And posting drawings.
    God bless.
    P.S. No, you don't know me. I enjoy your blog!

  7. You did a great job! And personally, I think this is your best one yet!! :) -Monica
