Ah, art therapy. Yes, if she tries Lithriel actually can draw. :p
It's fun to pull out the old sketchbook and draw freehand every one in a while.


I moved rather quickly with this piece, and I altered hardly anything which is rare for me. Most of the time I make sure everything matches up exactly before I move on. No gridding or tracing.

Graphite and white prisma colored pencil on 18" x 24" tinted strathmore 500 charcoal paper

Beautiful work, Lithriel. Just one observation: I noticed something unusual about the anatomy, then checked the photo and thought it may have been altered. I could be wrong, but it'd have been strange if the photo actually has been doctored. Anyway...

Nice work; This actually looks better than the reference photo, probably because it's a bit more idealized which I like. Nicely done!

Great work :-) Could you explain more about how the camera distorts for those of us who have to use pictures instead of models?

:-)

:iconlithriel:
lithriel Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2010
Why yes, generally the cone of vision of the camera distorts whatever is lower in the picture, usually the feet, so the feet appear shorter than they actually are. XD To me the ref picture looks a little distorted, her upper half looks larger than her lower half. So I compensated. I can't be certain she isn't actually shaped like that, but I changed it to make it feel "right" to me and I feel better about the result.

Sometimes if you take a picture up close of a face the nose will appear much bigger than it actually is. These are just a couple of examples.

I don't know much about anatomy, but her leg looks a bit manish, and her but is kinda pointy? I don't know...

This is just amazing! It actually looks more realistic than the ref picture! The shading and the way you've defined each muscle is just remarkable.
