I wanted to draw her before :)

This is a quick drawing(quick for me) I set a goal to finish this in one day. I'll NEVER ever do that again because I rushed the hair and clothing (as you can see xD) so I would have it finished before midnight. I just have to accept I'm a super slow drawer haha

Took out my old pencils and new cheap no brand paper... It works better for me than those brand stuff :lmao:

Poorly scanned :cry:

Used:
-Pencil eraser, mechanical eraser, kneaded eraser
-A4 Paper, no brand
- bunch of tissues
- 1B, 6B pencils

Reference: [link]
There's something really odd with the proportions....any feedback would be appreciated :)

Yeah I know :P Like I said in the description, there's something in the proportions that bothers me I just couldn't figure out exactly what at the time. But I made this like a year ago. Proportions are going better now :)

Thanks :) People often say something about my age :O I don't think it matters a lot though..does it:?

MinaPjetrov Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2011
wow you do have a great talent, especially considering your age
it's good that you made that goal, if you keep trying with the time set you can make something like this in a matter of 3 hours
mix it up a little with different sizes and times
i love the soft tones you can create with pencil

you are right there is something odd with the proportions, i'll try to help you with the best of my knowledge
i think what might be bothering you her nose and mouth, the middle of the two must line up with the middle of her chin. think of it like folding the face in half, it's the same on both sides.
the size of her nose and mouth is accurate, so there is no need to change that.
there are other things but that is stuff you will learn yourself as you progress as an artist

Thank you :) I'm still drawing portraits right now but I really want to try other medium like painting in the future.

and thanks for the feedback :) I'll remember it for future portraits! I've never thought of it like that way. These kind of comments makes me want to draw right away haha I can't though :saddummy: wished Ihad more time

MinaPjetrov Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2011
^____^ no problem, if you want anymore feedback i am here to help
if you want to move to painting i suggest to start with oil pastels and colors, it helps you understand paint a little.

thats good! not many people like to draw after feedback hahaha i know so many that get butthurt after they ask for feedback
are you taking any art classes? thats the best way to sneak in time, it's like your forced to have that hour or so to your art.

Q-Le Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
oil pastels..:O I need to research first before I will try haha
I love feedback :) some people just see it as someone being mean to them or something.. I'm not taking art classes right now. A lot of people have recommended taking art classes but at the moment I don't really have time. I don't like any sort of lessons anyways haha it's also hard to get lessons over here :saddummy: I live in a village and there's a city really close to it but I'm not in the mood to cycle another half hour in the rain or snow to take art classes haha and even though it is a city it's, unfortunately, not that "artsy"

MinaPjetrov Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011
no research just dive in, that's the best way to figure it out. that's what i did (although i don't put that work up here :nuu: ) get the cheapest brand you can find and test it out, it requires a lot of layering and patience. but that is my style some people just lay the pastel on thick and make masterpieces.
does your school offer art? mine did and i wasn't necessarily taught any lessons, she just gave us a type of a project and what medium, if you needed help she'll help but if she saw you got it she leaves you alone.
if you can't i can help you, over the internet of coarse
i'd really like to see how much you can grow, you have a certian spark that not many artists have
im currently teaching some people in the style i was taught. which is eploring by myself, with only minimal restrictions and tough feedback.

yeah my school does offer it and I'm following it right now :) So far we've only done abstract which I just can't like haha I always make it too detailed or too much stuff in it.
indeed she doesn't give exactly "lessons". she just give assignments and give tips from time to time. And when she tells something, it's basic stuff like primary colours. But I just use it as relaxation. It's really relaxing to do something creative between 8 periods learning.
Honestly, I've only chosen it because It's the only subject that has not only theory(these package also includes art history which unfortunately also includes lots of tests for both of them :saddummy:) all my other subjects are a bunch of big books( + I'm following extra subjects)I actually wanted to chose something else, but figured out it would be too much for me to take on.

Also, thank u! I would really appreciate the help. I already met so many nice people on DA who give tips and such :) I love this web community! I probably wouldn't even have started drawing if I had not seen this site.

:rofl: i HATED abstract!!! but i found a way around it, i make something detailed with an abstract overlay of colors, it's quite fun :D

thats good! you won't go insane until college
just stick with one art class per year, you cant overwork yourself, or your head will explode!! :iconexplosionplz:

:gwomp: no problem, let me know when your ready to start, i'll try my best to work with your time

This is a good improvement since the aqua di gioia drawing. There are only little mistakes, the most significant is the shape at the end of the nose
