Asian lady w/ cardigan


Author Comments

Pencil portrait of an asian lady in a tartan(?) shirt with black cardigan. The shirt is a real pain to draw.

Yes, I know she has a really round face. -shrugs- It just is.

It looks real!

Yea you really made it look like a photo. There is a lot of detail and the shading is excellent. Really great job.

Thanks! I'd say the shading leaves a lot to be desired though, I've refined my technique in my newer works. The shirt itself I spent a really looong time on, and so is the entire drawing. So I'm glad you like it, means a lot to me :)


really cool drawing. the face is really round which is common to see in asian women but the thing that most stands out is that you should have curved in towards the eye a little bit i think it would have really defined the face, that and on the right side of her face it seems like her hair is pulled back enough that you should be able to see a little bit of ear, her left eye is a bit low, her right chin is a bit too big, but overall just a few tiny things that keep it from being perfect

Thanks for the review! This was actually edited after I drew it by one of my artist friends (I'm just an amateur), and he corrected most of the things you mentioned. But I uploaded what I did instead because it's well, what I did!

It's before I improved my shading and drawing of hair too, but I'm glad you like it, and your comments will help much in my next projects. will look out to avoid making the same mistakes!
