Artwork Description

This is a character named Fliss from a fantasy role playing game. She wields magic inside her, but she is very shy. This image is a redone version of the original since my art portfolio was recently stolen at an art competition. Done in mechanical pencil with no smudging.

Yes I was sooooo angry. And, the people there were like "Oh, sorry." Very disturbing. The original actually was not as good as this one. So I was very happy with the second version compared to the first. As for smudging . . . the reason I stopped is because everyone was saying I should not. I haven't been drawing very long. I think I am up to eight months now coming this september. So I try what every one tells me to try. I do smudge on my charcoals because it does make them more realistic. But, stopped on my pencil drawings because everyone told me I should. hehe I will try to smudge a bit to try and find the perfect balance. Thank you so much Laughing out loud

Your portfolio was stolen??!! Oh, that's terrible! Did you get this to live up to the original? I know when I try to redo something I'm never as happy with it as the first time around... I want to ask: why do you shy from smudging mecha pencil? With tiny tiny detail work I can understand, I avoid smudging then too. But with large smooth areas like this, smudging might make the shading more realstic. It's gorgeous shading already, but in the shadow of her face, the grain of your pencil work is pretty apparent.

What a beautiful portrait! You have excellent control. I love your use of line work & how it follows the contour of the figure. The pose of the figure is a classic. VERY NICE WORK! Excellent tonality too!

Art at its best.
