Umbrella Girl


Mixed media drawing/illustration of a lady with a Chinese umbrella.

The result of an experiment on lighter tones, drawing/creating rain effects, transparency effects, removing pencil marks, and drawing umbrellas.

Umbrella turned out quite bad, since my angles were off, but I let it be since this was just an experiment. Think I improved on the digital colouring as compared to previous works though.

The problem I have (written that too many times now) with this image is that although you have put admirable effort into the detail and texture of the drawing (especially the hair), the actual underlying basic line-art doesn't seem to quite sit right in my mind - for example, the jawline to me seems to be far too wide and really very masculine, and the eye sockets and recesses seem a little oddly shaped and it makes me feel sort of confused if I look for too long.

Maybe you're bang on the money and I just have some underlying issues with the facial anatomy of Asian people, but either way my opinion stems from my interpretation, and there it is.

Thanks for the comment!

Well, it is a pretty odd angle to look at a face from, and I might have missed out a few visual cues to indicate the head's position, like shadows in some places. I think that's why it might look odd, though I'm pretty confident about the anatomy.

Can't really pinpoint what they are right now though. Looked through some reference photos online too, can't find any major differences between Asian and Caucasian jawlines, but of course, Asian eyes are much different.

A much reduced brow bone, smaller eyes, flatter faces, an epicanthic fold, and flatter, less pointed noses are some of the differences Asians have.


I wish the stars can go up to a million omigosh you are amazing! The umbrella looks better than I can write my own name!!!!
