I'm lazy so I'll just copy the description from DA:


Looks ****eous but meh... only stuff I've done in months. I'm annoyed at my scanner for making the shading *coughpoorexcuseforshadingcough* look way worse than it is.

Oh well.

Rub my ego please http://e.deviantart.com/emoticons/b/biggrin.gif

Somehow I couldn't make her nose smaller... and as you can see I didn't put much effort into the...errm....leaves XD

The bad thing about her nose is the fact that it is too pointy! :p
Other than that the face looks incredibly good, it has some really good details! :D

I tried helping out with the nose :wve: I think its awesome. I espically like how you have done the eyes! :tmb:

The nostril is a little bigger than the rest of the nose. I tried drawing an example in paint. Not exactly brilliant!

Gorgeous!

I don't think the nose needs to be smaller, most people draw noses too small anyways. The reason why it might seem not quite right is not because of its size, but because it's too low. It needs lifted a bit, as does the mouth, because her mouth is kind of on her chin.

It's an all too common mistake that all of us artist are guilty of sometimes. At least I am, I find myself working on that all the time. :p

The eyebrow is very creative, I love how you've done that. :) And the hair! :eek: I'm simply crazy about the hair, it's a very sexy style. :tmb:

Oh, and I forgot, I was going to give you a link to a good mouse coloring tutorial for cel shading. Here it is:

I'd love to see you color this. :D

Yes, and I was drawing it even lower so you can imagine how horrible it looked :vlol: I guess it's a mix of tired eyes, bad lighting and not being able to look at it properly. Sometimes you just a few more pairs of eyes :D (thanks guys XD) and thanks dearie ^^ although I still plan on getting a tablet soon.... I have a whole month ahead of me of holidays and no tablet so thanks ^^

Thanks guys :D mucho helpo appreciated.

Since Mel and Nausi already commented on the nose I'll go ahead and comment on the beautiful eyes and lips. The shading and details are really amazing and add life to the drawing. Though it's kind of hard to name her expression - maybe adjusting her eyelids/eyebrows could help reinforce the facial expression you're going for.

Other than that, I give it two :tmb:. I hope you decide to color it. :D


^ Take that Paperdoll's ego! :ohn:

I like it! But her nose, even if it's nicely shaped and looks natural, is kinda too big, esp when we compare it to her mouth and overall face :)

That's really nice, you did a fantastic. I posted this awhile ago at another forum, it could help you:


The face is 5 eyes wide, there is one eye in the middle of the two eyes on the face. The first and fifth eye can be a bit shorter or longer though.

The nose is one eye wide.
The nose is one and half eyes down from the eyes.

The bottom of the nose to the bottom of the lip is also one eye in height. Even if you are smiling, it is still one eye in in height.
From the bottom of an eye to the top of an eyebrow is one eye in length.
From the bottom of your lip to the bottom of your chin is one eye.

There are others, but I can't explain them, so here is diagram I did with your head, should make things more clear:

But it is just a rule of thumb, it helps me A LOT though.

But I think the big nose gives her a certain uniqueness, I like it.
