Christina, the fighter by dragonflyart Christina, the fighter by dragonflyart
This picture was hard really, really hard to draw. Not because of the motive but because of the paper. I have never been drawing on a paper with this difficulty. I could NOT get the shadows to look like they were supposed to look and be. It just didn't work! And as I was getting more and more annoyed it suddenly worked out really well. I had done a drawing with this furious strange passion that made me work so hard on to make it good, and suddenly everything was perfect.

Strange thing.. haha I had some stranglements with the nose.. didn't want to be where I wanned it to be. But it worked out aswell... the hair.. hard thing there but I think im about to get the hold on of how to make it look more realistic now days...

Stunningly realistic, I'm impressed, I seriously thought it was a black and white photograph when I saw the thumbnail. Excellent job with texture, as well!

even more realistic? :| ok... but how? :D

I just don't get her eyes... I don't know... they are looking strange to me, but maybe it's becouse I haven't seen Christina for a loooooooooooooooooooong time...

Beautiful, Quite Beautiful, i couldn't even tell that it was hand drawn until i looked at the shading on the hands, which was about the only giveaway this wasn't a photo. If you don't mind me asking how long did this piece take?

Oh thank you. Naw I know, didn't work all too hard on the hand. But I'm going to change that.. soon :) or soon enough.
Em it took about 9-13 hours I think :)
