Katharina by conworth Katharina by conworth
I came across this picture [link] on dA and immediately knew I had to draw it. :love:
A huge challenge, because it’s mostly hair.
As much as I still love the image, I’m not too happy with the result. :(
The hair for me is not realistic enough and the fact that I’ve taken at least 6 weeks to finish this drawing has not helped. But it was a good excersice.

Onwards (and hopefully upwards)…. Interested in your opinions.

Wonderful realism in the piece, love the way you have used light and dark shading to make her stand out even more :) +fav
My only criticism is that you may have rushed the shading a little on the lower part of the image, where the hair mets the strand of hair going over her face.... but I'm far from perfect so I'll just shut up :)

I think you're absolutely right, that I rushed the lower part of the image (it was the last part I did). I had lost all patience by then. Thanks for mentioning it, I appreciate it!! Keep em coming!

I think this portrait looks great and it's very nicely detailed and shaded! I'm no expert on hair so I can't give you any advice there! :)

Stop joking with me! If I'm totally honest with myself the eyes and hair are my weaknesses! You could teach me alot about improving in those 2 areas more than I could teach you! :D

Lovely. Her nose looks a little strange, doesn't it? The way the light falls on the left side makes her nose look flatter and longer than it should be. Accurate drawing of a great photo, but that just looks a little strange to me. You are too good at hair, something I was never able to figure out. Good skills, Connie. :clap:

Thanks buddy, appreciate the comment. I suppose you're right, I think the shading on the left side (our right side) needed to come in a bit more, now her nose seems a bit broad.
:thanks:
