Girl brushing hair

Author Comments

Hello everyone :) This is my second submission to the art portal woowoo!

I had this idea in my head for a while. It is a mysterious girl brushing her hair in the middle of the night. Maybe it's a forest spirit?

I don't know where to get a scanner so it is also a photograph of an actual drawing. I used a mechanical pencil on light green paper. I like working on colored paper even though it snitches on me on the places where I used the eraser a lot :P This took me a couple of hours to make.

Anyways hope you like it :) Reviews would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys! :)



What I like too about this picture is the green paper. It gives more of a forest feeling. I like that the bottom right corner is almost white, while the top left is darker green too. It gives the illusion of a luminous spring. Did you do that with your eraser, or was that just a mistake with the flash during the making of the photo?
It doesn't need colour in my opinion, by the way.

The anatomy of her body is perfect. No wierd, misplaced body parts or other odd arm curves. Her face is really nice too. Very calm.

What I would've liked though is a bit clearer surroundings. The flat surface she's sitting on doesn't give the impression of nature / a forest. If she hadn't dropped her hair in the water, I also wouldn't have known it was water. Though you have a clever technique to let people know it's water. So mixed feelings about that.

Simple but elegant

Your anatomy looks just about right, and the background is very well done. The girl in the picture reminds me of a fountain faerie from zelda though (the outfit is very similar). Overall though the look of everything is very nice :}
I really would have liked to see this colored though :C

There's not much I can say that I would fix or do differently, but I can definitely say that this needs color! You've got some talent, but if you don't color your submissions you probably wont get scouted for the portal too soon :{

Overall; great work!

Well I like how simple this piece is. You just took up a pencil and paper and drew this one up right? Very well done piece of work in my opinion. Should be a poster or something like that.

I think the only real thing you could really do here is possibly add color to it. Her stroking her hair near a river in the forest is such a great scene as well as calming.

Overall, wonderful and simple.
