Oh my god I have really forgotten about newgrounds. Life has been so busy for me lately. With art, tennis, school, applying to college, and the wonderful girlfriend I haven't had time to do anything on newgrounds lately. Hopefully that will change. This is a drawing I did for my ap art class. Its conte chalk on mid tone paper.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

It looks really good to me. I like the "waterfall" tears, I like the perspective and I like the details on the mouth, nose, eyes and ears.

It seems a bit like an unfinished, unpolished piece of work to me though. I can still see a lot of (help?) lines and marks that seem to have been whiped with an eraser. Obviously I'm missing the hair, a part of the neckline and a cheek. Of course it could be that you never intended to draw all those things, but I think it would've been really nice if you had worked on those things as well before you submitted it.

In any case, it's a very nice drawing. Way better than I could ever do. I'm sure the end result (if this isn't a finished work) would've been amazing.

Overall 4.5 out of 5. Keep up the excellent work.

hahaha thanks man. It's a little difficult for me to categorize this drawing. It is a sketch thats for sure, but I kind of dig the unfinished look to art; it's like the viewer is seeing the process, the strokes and the lines that the artist used in creating the piece. Like seeing the framework of an animation; the steps the artist took. Like leaving spaces blank and open for interpretation hahaha idk. I'm really OCD about drawing, so I often don't finish them at all haha. I am also very messy and I smudge and erase and I just leave it there. I'd like to say it adds to the overall visual effect but thats bullshit haha i'm just messy.

Looking pretty good mate! The anatomy isn't perfect but it works! I like the white highlights.

Dude, nice sketch, I love the upturned face. The whole thing gives off a quiet sorrow rather than a big heaving sob. It's also rather nicely detailed.
