A5, 1 hour. Very fun.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great impression!!

especially loving the way how you spent so few lines drawing out the hair but yet result looks suprisingly real

Bryony responds:

Thanks, I was seeing how far I can go with as little as possible.

Should've done it on proper blank paper, as I feel the lines kind of ruin the experience here just a tad.

It looks really good. Anatomically speaking I'd say the face looks nice, everything is placed right. Hair is big, but looks good, lines are nicely drawn. Only issue I have other than the lines is that the eyes seem a bit off. Her right seems to be a lazy eye?

Bryony responds:

Yeah I'll probably do a proper one on plain paper. Her droopy eyes are part of the style, maybe I went too far.

What 'negative space' means?

Although the ruled paper's lines interfere with the drawing, they also lend it a surreal sense. The shading is sufficiently realistic that I easily imagine this as a three-dimensional object, but then the transparency that is "white" instead of "shaded" sort of gives it away as a 2D image ... and that confuses my brain in a good way.

I mean, the drawing itself is really nice and I think you've captured how a face with humanity should look. But my favorite part is still the ruled lines peeking through the transparent negative space.

Not intentional, but thanks!
