The Eyes of an Artist by NynjaKat The Eyes of an Artist by NynjaKat
Update: Finally portfolio quality version of this image c: I'll be updating other pieces in my portfolio with good and detailed pics. And new good titles too!


Finished my self portrait for Drawing. There are still a few little things that bother me about it but I'm sooo done working on it. I've been overworking the details I didn't like for quite awhile trying to get them right...It was a bit difficult working from the photo she gave me but I managed. >~< [sorry for the phone photo btw. My teacher enjoys hanging everything I do up righhhht after it's done so I seldom get the chance to take it home and attempt for a better photo.]

Used: Graphite pencils + fixative.
Time: approx 12~14 hours
Size:??idk large paper ;w;' I wanted to work on a smaller paper but this one was a good 20+ inches in height

excuse me, you have a very great drawing skill! This portrait is amazing and realistic! I Was wondering, how do you achieve getting the lighting for the hair right, as if you can see each individual strand? I can never do it!
