Probably will scrap this later; but what the heck, I need more art on dA.

A sketch of a good friend done almost entirely in one choir class. ^^ (If you don't want your name up there, I can edit it out, but it will look crappier if I do.)

Comments/critiques? A little more realistic than my usual style, but I like it this way.

Emma (c) Emma. :heart:

This is still one of my favorite pieces of art you've drawn. I may be a bit biased though, haha~

Ohh lookit this! I like the merging of realism and not-quite-so, in a lot of cases. It looks nice.

I love the softness in her face. Her eye is very pretty... like the fluffy hair and the little blush on the cheek, too.
The detail in her jacket and her sweater looks very cool, but also still a bit sketchy. Like, if you had taken it a bit further, shaded more deeply in places, it would look more complete.
Also, the shine on the hair looks a bit flat, which distracts from the fact that besides that the hair looks really nice.

Also. Glad to see you're paying attention in class, nii-san. :heart:

Wooow, what a lovely portrait :D she looks gorgeous. So kudoes for the portrait view, I always really struggle. . mebe it's the noses that get me xp
Even though everyone's said it, the eye doesn't really bother me that much. It's more of her neck line I think. It's kind of. . chunky ( lolsorrythatsoundshorrible ) or something, I just think it should be scolloped out a little more

Thanks for the advice~ :hug:

I think I just figured that I always draw necks too skinny in anime style. Like, people's necks are pretty large in real life, lolol. ~Mandi-Minamoto says that the neck is her least favorite part of the body; she would rather our heads just floated like Rayman's. xD

NECKS ARE CHUNKY AND UGLY.
ALSO UNNECESSARY, UNLESS YOU FEEL LIKE EATING AND BREATHING.

I still think it's as wonderful as it was the day you drew it. :)

You can keep my name in, I don't mind at all.
...I still don't think I do this picture justice. You make me out to be so much prettier than I am. :blush:

:wow: Artemis, this is really good and in one class??

The only thing that is odd to me is the shape of her eye, but other than that it's really good =D

Ooh, very pretty and peaceful, I like your pencilwork and her clothes especially <3 The shape of her face also looks very sweet and natural. Like above, they only thing I can point out is her eye and eyebrow (perhaps a bit less round for a more realistic style?), and possibly shading her hair in downward instead of horizontal strokes for the highlights, with dark patches to create the illusion of depth xD idk what I'm talking about though, your realism is better than what I could do in one class!

:iconartemis-elric:
artemis-elric Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009
Yeah, I know just what you mean about the shading, and I can see how the eye part is off... I think I did the shading at the last minute or so of class, but I probably could have done it properly. ^^ Thanks so much for the critique!! :hug:
