Friend's Daughter

Post by Threshold » Wed Aug 01, 2007 9:12 pm

gomen kudasai! Sorry, I've wanted to be on here more often, but I'm so busy. Hope this makes up a little bit. Someone I worked with at the community college asked me about a commission of her daughter shortly before I graduated. She forgot about it, but I didn't. I started it around two weeks ago and surprised her today at work. She liked it. :D Here it is.

Muffin - She's got her mom's eyes. Expressive = yes.

Frank - Haha, thanks. I've got to say this is the happiest I've been with a finished drawing in a long while.

Cool beans, dude! I'd suggest only that you take a hunk off the right side for the sake of composition/balance (and maybe push the contrast, but it probably would be hard with that media). I'm not surprised that she was pleased with it, in any case. Good to see you continuing to step up your game :)

James, you're right about that right side ('hunk' is a good word.) Since I had a photo reference, I sorta "switched off" a lot of the stuff I should have been thinking of. I was trying to stick to a standard size (8x10).
As for the contrast, yeah. Col-erase pencil and all that. Thanks for the comments.

By the way, has anyone else noticed that you seem to get a lot better after a tough project? Sketchbooks are great for exploring and stuff, but I feel like I only really get better after doing big stuff.
