Ok, honestly, I haven't posted any of my art in forever, so I figured I would now. Even though I probably should have waited until I made it look better, or colored it, or something. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Anyway, this is something I whipped up at work today. I randomly decided to draw. This is a character I made up named Ophelia.

Having that said, Ophelia, meet the SC forum. SC forum, meet Opelia.


btw, she's evil. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

I know how you feel, noses used to frustrate me to no end! Especially since I used to have the tendancy of drawing noses way too small, especially when drawing a woman, because naturally I didn't want to draw an ugly lady with a big nose. So instead, I'd end up drawing an ugly lady with a tiny, Michael Jackson nose. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

But yeah, I got a book for Christmas a few years ago that was written and illustrated by some forensic artist. I learned a lot about facial anatomy from that. It seems like we have this interpretation of what different features look like and we draw them accordingly, only to discover that our perception was wrong the whole time. You'll get most of your practice by simply drawing what you see and by looking at other artworks and establishing what is anatomically correct or not. This will help your perception to be more accurate; therefore, you'll do a lot better with drawing from imagination. I improved most dramatically from my art when I took a break to analyze other people's art, point out the inaccuracies, while taking note of what is right. Then, before I knew it, I was able to draw different things that I couldn't do before. Which goes to show that art is all about perception.

Thanks for all the input everyone. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I'm going to make a comic book (hopefully), so I've got all these characters and ideas that I'll be more than happy to share with y'all as I progress.

I plan on coloring this picture and removing teh lined paper; however, my computer mouse is being so ******ed. For some reason, when I click, it automatically double clicks half the time. This is a royal pain when I'm trying to photoshop, so if this problem persist, I'll buy a new mouse before finishing this up. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
