i gave it to her last night, first thing out of her mouth was "this is going on my wall!" (i framed it up for her).
I used an picture of the original anime sketches for reference, and i liked the way that it was. I tried to do the inking like that. Had i colored it, I would have definitely inked the hair fully, but with that type of pen, I wouldn't have been able to show the dreds off very well.
BTW, the dredlocks were the hardest to draw, really annoying, especially when i was drawing them kinda fast my hand wanted to make the ends pointy like normal anime hair! LOL.
i was really surprised at how well this picture turned out. it's only the 3rd i've drawn in approximately 2 years, so i was pretty rusty at first. I'm really excited by how this came out and i want to draw some more now...
. First time I've really gotten emotion to show in a portrait like that. I've got to find my old art folder cus I have some really nifty stuff in there I want to get on my deviant art page, including a really good one of Heero's head and his Gundam's head, which i'm really proud of.
