Dandelion is beautiful, and so full of character. I could imagine her being on a front cover of her own storybook.

Did you use coloring pencils, or is this a digital drawing? I like the soft, pencil-like effect that you used.

I finally able to improve myself!
Hi, Princess Belladonna.



Right now I'm busy in school exam and animation task from my friend, so I might not publish some art for awhile.

Thank you. I do the sketch with pencil first, then color the picture with the computer. To make sure the image is colored, I set the pencil/sketch layer to multiply, so the sketch is still visible. I also sometimes color the image on the top of the sketch layer to add some smoother skin effect.

No... I have to post something



Explanation:
Step 1: Blocking
I block out the main shape of the face. In this step, I do a very rough drawing of my face structure and paying attention to the proportions.

Step 2: Edgework
In this step, I started to pay attention to the general form of the face and also add some dark shadows to increase the picture contrast.

Step 3: Detail
The next thing to do is to create the detail of the face. I usually started out from the eyes and aggressively focus on the eyes, since eyes are the main focal point of the portrait. I also start to repair the nose (I'm bad at nose drawing, so yeah)

Step 4: Hair
I created the hair with a hair custom brush. I also use the mixture of photoshop round brush to create a more realistic look.

Step 5: Repair
In this step, I flip the image and find out lots of mistakes that is pretty funny to recognize. I decided to just fix some of them and flip back the image.
Tip: It's easier to find mistakes by flipping the image!

Step 6: Background
At this step, I start to work out with the background and try to blend the render/the girl with the background itself. At first, it's challenging to do this, but with some trial and error I finally able to match those two elements up.

Step 7: Final Polishing
The last one! I adjust the background and add up some highlights.

And here's the portrait result:

Wow, that was very interesting to see all the steps, it sure is a long process. Your new portrait drawing looks amazing as always. Do you ever use photos or other drawings as references?

Thank you, and yes. I do use other drawings as my references, but I rely on internet tutorial more than references.

Thank you. And yeah, it took me around 3-4 hours (I guess) to finish the portrait.

I got bored so I update the banner and also making this one:




The result came out terribly, I should've tried to ink more...
That's my OC Karina (remember the purple portrait drawing? I decided to remake her in colored version).
The castle background isn't belong to me, that's a stock image that I found in the internet.

At least my OC looks good enough...

Here's the picture that I'm working on right now:

The sketch picture is still in progress. Meanwhile, since I got bored for a while in traditional art, I decided to do a digital art instead. I do a practice in doing a portrait.

The leather texture is one of the stock images I found on the internet.

A pirate.
