Beauty by Mayne1 Beauty by Mayne1
I attempted using a reference for my drawings this time rather than imagination, and it wasnt too bad for a first attempt.

Thanks to dancingesto101 [link] who allowed me to use her beautiful photograph as my reference. Please do take a moment to have a look at her gallery, she has a beautiful collection.

You did an amazing job on this one, i really admire your work :)
I noticed you don't draw the lashes, but the way you draw your eyes is beautiful :)
You are amazing artist, may I ask why don't you draw more ?
I would love to see more work from you, mainly eyes :D

thank u mona, ure rly sweet.
i havent touched a pencil to draw in like 3 months n i do miss it. ive been more occupied with work n uni n extra curicular work at uni n it hasnt been givin me time to draw.. usually when i start drawing i get quite addicted to it n cant focus on anythin else.. n that wont work with study :) n ive tried drawing last week n my skills have somewhat lessened n my shading was horrid.. so that didnt really help with gettin me some motivation to continue lol

You are welcome and thank you very much :)
I understand, but sometimes drawing can be more of expressing
and letting go of some stresses in life, like work or uni.
I would love to see more work, please don't put the drawing behind you
you have so much talent to just let go. Practice is the key to be
better at drawing, and if you just stop for a long time, then it
will be harder for you. I hope you change your mind :)

i noticed in your description :) ive only been drawing as old as my dA account is so i havent been doin it for very long myself :) im fresh haha.. but aiming high. this one was my first attempt from a reference rather than straight from my mind n it proved effective. ill try n give u a helpful turtorial-like critique tmrw n maybe ur next drawing would be tonnes more impressive and you'll surprise urself ;)

ive only been drawing seriously for 2 months now so you can easily get there any time, i jus used a 2H and a 2B pencil.. and i gave as little detail and shading as possible :)

great job, you didn't use many lines and shading but it really gives a 3D impression :)
I think you could improve the quality of photo a bit - change to grayscale and play with a contrast/brightness balance.

Nice work. She is a great subject. One of my favourites. I have drawn her four times I think.

Mayne1 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
oh wow ya i was thinkin of drawing her again myself, this was my first attempt at using a reference and was probably one of my best drawings as well.. i tend to draw bigger eyes better than narrow ones. I guess seeing your drawing inspired me to try myself and it went pretty well.
