Holly Short - sketch

This is one of the first realistic sketches I'd done in months. It's definitely my favourite AF f-art to date. I think I spent a little over an hour on it (drawn on a very wobbly folder in bed). Lots of smudging, I haven't yet mastered regular shading (well, I have but I don't like it and it takes too much concentration).

I've improved the hair, but I haven't scanned the new version and I'm too lazy to anyway. But, I didn't know what a crew cut was so I just gave her short hair that looks really bad.

Ahhhh - Now this one is awesome! Very Happy

Its so life-like, and Holly would be great if she looked like this in the movie! Once again, the eyes are my favourite part. You do them so well! Very Happy

holy crap thats really good! There could be a bit darker shading in the eyes and hair, but not everything gets through the scanner. Great job!

Jesus mary of god!

My father used to do sketches like this for the police, and this is as realistic as those!

GOOD JOB! very realistic! it is really close to how I picture her, and that is saying something because I picture Holly really differently. But this is perfect! Very Happy

I love it. She looks like shes really looking at you! I am getting a vibe that she's kinda weary and maybe even alittle sad. It's a wonderful and sad picture.

it looks perfect how it is, but colour it! if you cant bring yourself to do it, copy it on a copier machine and experiment on the copies (NOT the mastercopy!!!)
