IU by n00brevolution IU by n00brevolution
Thought it was time to give portraits another shot. Who better than IU to be my next subject? Reference here: [link]

Took about 20 hours using 6H, HB and 6B pencils on A4. The hair took a lot longer than Yuri, obviously because it was far more complicated and I really wanted it to look like *hair*. Other than that, the general complexion of her face was rather difficult to pull off because it's meant to be smooth looking and with very few blemishes. It's a common misconception to think older, more wrinkly people are harder to draw than young people, but it's the other way round. After critical review of this drawing on my own behalf, I noticed the toning on her face is off in certain places (e.g. her left cheek) so I still need more practice.

Anyway, I did really enjoy drawing a decent portrait again. Now, back to the usual evil stuff then. XD

very nice hair detail. I also made sketches IU, but I just use HB and 2B pencil. Perhaps I should also use 4B, 6B and 8B that the results are better. ^^
