A peacock's feather by dloraas A peacock's feather by dloraas
Pencil-drawing after a photo from Hello-tuesday's stock
link: [link]


It was fun, but very challenging to draw this
i'm not to happy with how the details on this turned out though (like the "net" on her arm and the shawl(?) on her head)... i'm just not good at getting the "visual keys" - or whatever its called - right

The face look a bit dirty, but that is mostly due to the scan, it doesnt look like as dirty in real...

Amazing. Such a complex piece to have drawn. The different textures, feather clothes, hat must have taken a while to complete. Stunning,!

thanks, maybe i am, but sometimes you have a very clear image in your mind, but when it doesn't turn out entirely that way... well... :)

You sound like you are a perfectionist, which is great in an artist but it is good to know that most of your audience will be satisfied with a lot less as they are not seeing things through your eyes.

i wouldn't consider myself as an perfectionist(in any way), but what you are saying is true nevertheless, thanks :)

Gorgeous work. I think you're being a tad harsh on yourself about the netting. I personally think this piece is almost faultless. :aww: Well done, keep it up. :heart:

good contrast between the background and the figure and yet it blends at some points. Very well done I also do not see any flaws in this drawing. Congrats!

Love how you excellently created the 'out of focus' in the background together with the contrasting between her bare right shoulder & covered left shoulder:)!!! This is a beautiful piece you've created, congratulations to a job very, very well done:D!!! Don't beat yourself up, for I see nothing wrong with the 'net' on her arm or the shawl. . .it's perfect, it truly is:D!!!

You're most welcome:D!!! I know the feeling, in regards to how you want it to be but it isn't quite there, but to be honest with you, you've taken quite a challenging image - varied textures, strong contrasting gradients, highly detailed etc. - & managed to produce a wonderful piece. To yourself, it may have seemed that you struggled a bit but, the overall finish demonstrates the complete opposite! Hope to see many more works from you in the near future:D!!!
