'Best Kept Secret' by Siokia 'Best Kept Secret' by Siokia
Pheeeeeeeeew

Here is the reference picture: [link]

This is a graphite drawing of the middle picture in the link above! I wanted to do something different for my portfolio....And also nearly kill my softer pencils in the process! I was going through a friend of mine's gallery for insparation, and I came across this self portrait she made...a year ago? Two years ago? Anyway, I asked her if it was okay for me to try and she was very kind to say 'of course' in an excited manner. Thankyou so much Lotte!!!
Everyone, check out her photography, you will be impressed! :D :nod:

The actual finish date of this was on Lotte's birthday, 31st of August, however I was on holiday and I had no scanner so it had to wait until now to be uploaded. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOTTE! Sorry it appears to be late!!


So about the drawing. I enjoyed it really, it was a complete change, and I really wanted to get it right. However, already, there are things I would do differently, but I don't mind, because I will never stop drawing, so I will learn and live on. -Fist in air-
But before you comment/critique on the hand, neck and that general area, please note, I know full well it could do with more work, I understand it's mistakes!

Anyway, I enjoyed this, something different! And the first female except from my first drawing of a human ever that was made last Christmas. Haha. Lotte, you are amongst guys in my portfolio! Feel honoured! Just kidding. Yeeeah. Imma head.. -points over there- that way. -Wanders off-

-Runs back-

THANKYOU everyone for your support you give me through comments faves and the occaisional watch!! I really apprieciate it, thank you so much. If I haven't already given you a llama it will surely be on your way. My llamas are cute and fluffy.

the level of detail is at the gobsmackingly painfully oh-my-god-how-did-you-not-scream level! Love the softness of the hair - it's beautifully done :)

Especially considering this is a first I'd say you're really talented! She looks gorgeous, and I somehow especially like the way you drew the net (?) over her face. Very well done!

:la: Thank you so much! Yes, my first female portrait, you don't realise how different it is to draw male and female until you actually try it! I thought the net wasn't that good, so I'm so glad you like it!! :D Thankyouuu!! :hug:

Ahahahaha that would be funny! Especially if there was a moth in the question, all legal guardian duties would be dropped and the place would turn to chaos. Until I rescued you, then everything would be alllllll riiiiiight ^^
