Yui Album Portait by TayleRX Yui Album Portait by TayleRX
Sup there! Today, I give you my best drawing that I've done in a little while. It's Yui again, the Japanase singer (she's good). Now, I don't know what that is, but I find it easier to draw Asian girls faces, they're usually so smooth and not much face shading is required, I must say that I definitely enjoy drawing them. In the nearest future, you can expect a lot of asian girls drawings :D

Lol, anyway I did this drawing on a much thicker paper than my usual one, so I could finally play around with erasing a bit more without the need to worry about damaging the paper. In top of that, taking lessons from my previous drawings when any piece of cloth that I drew looked horrible, I actually spent more time and effort on this one and I'm finally satisfied with the way the hood turned out. The idea was to make it look like it's made out of cotton, and surprisingly the drawing of the hood looks quite close to the cotton.

So yeah, it doesn't usually happen but I'm finally fully satisfied with this drawing and I'm eager to hear what you think about it :D

Time: 14 hours
0.3, 0.5 and 0.7 mechanical pencils
2H, 3H, 4B, 5B and 6B pencils
Paper stumps and tortillions
Eraser

Really first class drawing!  You give details of pencils, but what is the paper size?

Wow! love how you drew the eye- she looks like a photograph- it must be hard to draw real people- I cant draw a person accuratly- I do the preportions of the face right but their eyes always come out manga or cartoonlike- you must be a pro, I appreciate this because its so accurate and helps me to attempt to get the eyes right thanks your really good and shes really pretty

You did great on the hair, and the hood looks so realistic! The lips are also really well done. :D This is easily one of the best drawings you've done.

Wow, now this one is truly flawless. If it didn't have "TayleRX" written on the bottom, I'd say it was a photo. EVERYTHING is simply indistinguishable as a drawing. And the hood! How'd you even get the little fibers so accurate? It looks like it should've taken A LOT longer than just 14 hours. I think this may be your absolute best in the department of detailing. A stunning job, really!:D

Although, it really says something that even you're happy with it!:D You've always had more to say about your own work then anyone else in constructive criticism! And with your recent work, this really shines as being ESPECIALLY well done!:aww:

Lol, you sure give me a lot of credit, but I expect nothing less from my buddy Kyce! I'm really flattered that you compare this drawing to a photo, it must be a sign that my style is improving and I'm really glad because of that :D The hood was a nightmare to do, but fortunately, the reference picture was quite clear so I could get all the little details on the robe. In top of that, I've used a little, yet very cunning technique suggested by :icongaladhwin: which basically involves putting an extra piece of paper on top of the drawing and drawing little dots to get the hood to look like it's actually cotton and by basically shading that paper. Then I just had to define the little dots on the actual paper to make them more visible. Anyway, thanks a lot for da commnent!

Ya know, even WITH that tip in mind, taking another look at it, that still doesn't help me to figure out why the detailing on the cloak is SO good!:D Just by looking, I can even tell what texture and material the cloth is supposed to be made of! You've just gotten so unbelievably good! Keep up the awesome work, my friend!:aww:
