xhewasnt--x 2006/4/22 - 23:20:9
I love it. Even if it is bloody.
phil 2006/4/23 - 15:19:44
To bloody? no such thing ^_^ i like the hand and finger nails, the hair is neat to :)
piyoko 2006/4/23 - 15:32:41
I still don't think its very bloody. (Your sister) I think it looks great. Good job.

kougra_girl 2006/4/22 - 21:10:5
she looks happy o.o very nice job on the hair!
monique 2006/4/24 - 22:22:13
now that's cool, and she looks so happy too.
eeyoresonlyfrnd 2006/4/29 - 16:9:21
thats adorable! I love the shine in her hair. the only thing I would change is that her hair looks kinda stuck together. you might want to make it flow better. you know?
lorelai 2006/5/3 - 10:49:7
look at that innocent smile! :)
mika-kun 2006/5/8 - 11:49:26
Now that's a sure candidate for a 'makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside' award.........:D

Remus J. Lupin. My second favourite Marauder, as a young man, around 14-15. I felt this was good enough to be in polished, because I put alot of effort into it..
Alot of the weird shading on his face is scars. So don't freak out at it..
bananarana 2006/4/17 - 11:35:49
Ahh Lupin, my favorite Harry Potter character. Who's your first favorite Marauder? I actually wouldn't have noticed the scars unless you pointed them out. :O
xhewasnt--x 2006/4/17 - 13:28:42
James for sure.
A.) If he hadn't tapped Lily, we wouldn't have a series
B.)He sounds gorgeous.
Sirius is my obvious third because I don't even consider Wormtail a Marauder.
protego 2006/4/22 - 10:22:23
YAY! Something related to Harry Potter! I can just make out a scar on his mouth I think? Like the hair! Keep up the work!
Protego, a Harry Potter fan.
phil 2006/4/23 - 15:29:28
i dislike harry potter :) think i did somethink related in the theme room long ago =)
positive side i do like his shiney hair and glasses

Sorry, gotta run! Quick description: Timer lies, hair was fun, and so was the skin! I used my own back as reference. Enjoy!
lavalizard 2006/4/16 - 0:25:30
Ooo, I think this is my favorite of the series:)
Such cool hair action, and her expression looks very emotional. I like the shoulder blades too.
eeyoresonlyfrnd 2006/4/16 - 2:53:27
whoa thats awesome.
bananarana 2006/4/17 - 11:34:50
lovely! Swirls are beautiful, shading wonderful. Definitely love your style!
bananarana 2006/4/17 - 11:44:20
lol, double post. :> When you're done with all of these, you should connect them together and call it a series. X3
happywaterbottle 2006/4/17 - 21:17:7
awesome hair o_o it almost looks like wings.
I simply am amazed by your awesome skillz ;o;
crazy90 2006/4/20 - 22:10:2
haha lovely! i like it! yeah.... the hair sorta looks like wings when i first glanced at it! n.n
lorelai 2006/5/3 - 10:49:20

I missed oekaki x-x..
blumeaniandglove 2006/4/12 - 23:2:8
fiery hot hot hot!
i love the yellow on the shading.
kougra_girl 2006/4/16 - 22:0:27
that's really pretty! love the way you colored this. very nice
bananarana 2006/4/17 - 11:36:58
Nice shading of the skin. I'd click on that link, but I'm operating on a bandwith cap right now and it takes 23094872309581 days to load a page. X3 Looks great, though!

angie 2006/4/10 - 15:45:42
shes got very pretty lips, and thats a smexy veil
xhewasnt--x 2006/4/10 - 21:38:18
SHES SO PRETTY. Okay. I love what you did with the veil, and oh my god, that eye! Its gorgeous. And I love the purple hair. But..Wheres her neck?
naty 2006/4/12 - 20:43:48
turtle neck! yay!
love her blushful face and expression :3
bananarana 2006/4/17 - 11:37:56
Love the lace! It looks beautiful. She's very pretty; such bright green eyes. Love the colors in this. <3
molly 2006/6/25 - 13:49:49
It's so pretty. :3

ryoanna 2006/4/8 - 19:6:28
umm.. i hope this is polished enough.. sry if it isnt.. dont really know what else i can do.. and yes i know the fingers are fat and stubby.. im just really bad at drawin em ^_^;; any c&c is welcomed :-)
ryoanna 2006/4/8 - 19:8:52
and yea.. i didnt know what the heck i was doing with the bracelet.. haha sry bout the sucky-ness -_-
happywaterbottle 2006/4/8 - 19:48:30
that looks very pretty :) it sure is polished enough!
Her jaw looks a bit too square-ish for my liking. I think it should connect faster with the ear... if you see what I mean ^^; other than that well, I think I would have shaded more the nose, and a lil less the cheek... and well you already know about the fingers...
this is a very nice piece :) her eyes are gorgeous! looking forward for more of your pics :D
ryoanna 2006/4/10 - 23:10:28
thank you for the comment ^^.. still fairly new here... trying to get used to everything:-)
treespirit 2006/4/13 - 10:11:35
thats very pretty...nice contrasting colors
ryoanna 2006/4/14 - 23:45:13
thank you :)
bananarana 2006/4/17 - 11:41:54
Beautiful piece of work! Aside from what HWB suggested about the jawline, and your own observation with the fingers, you did a wonderful job. I think her lips could be a little fuller, as in, a slightly larger mouth to fit her lovely face more. That bracelet is just wonderful. <3

A much better and accurate self portrait. More recent photo ref. - And the little spots are supposed to be freckles. i was having a hard time with the eyes-trying to make them blend better with the face. I think they stand out a bit too much.
senobdec 2006/4/7 - 12:37:53
Looks good, always been a fan of greyscale ;).
C+C:The eyes are not lined up correctly (based on the nose and mouth, which are fine I think) - move the leftmost eye right by 1/2 eye width and down 3/4 eye height (approximate).
Generally, you need more contrast in your shading (if this is flash photography taken at night the edges of the face would be much darker although you can tone down the "light reflection" on the focused face. The nose, cheek and ridges around the eye should all be more sharply defined.
To tone down the eyes simply use watercolor 2 at low opacity. I would not recommend using blur much, but it could also help.
Ditto for the lips, very little contrast.
meeshy 2006/4/9 - 3:32:41
i KNEW something was wrong with it! i just couldn't figure out exactly WHAT. thanks sooo much for pointing those things out...i'm going to practice with the photoshop tools.
bananarana 2006/4/17 - 11:45:44
You did great! I've tried so many times to do a realistic picture; I just can't seem to get the hang of it. But this looks fantastic! I hope you continue drawing more pictures like this one.

<3 <3 to you all!
blumeaniandglove 2006/4/4 - 1:32:22
AH, i missed you :)
theres a lot to take in in your picture.
I like the hair the best though
happywaterbottle 2006/4/4 - 9:17:56
welcome back! :D
interesting style we have here... it's very cool!
artistmonkey 2006/4/4 - 15:40:37
i remember you!! :D
i always loved your style.
this is way neat. i loooove the sketchiness and all the colors you used. especially in the hair. :]
xdarkx 2006/4/4 - 22:11:51
wow, stylish. i love the little details, like the flower and the button. and that hair, those hands... ^^;;
mitsu 2006/4/5 - 9:18:45
Ditto to what everyone else said. Love love LOVE this style! It says "contemporary icon" to me. I find the buildup of colors on the face and hair particularly intriguing, and the combination of soft and hard is super stylin'. :DDD
senobdec 2006/4/5 - 10:16:15
Woot! spoonalshmee is back! Style is as great as ever, and I really like the way you did the hand....
monique 2006/4/5 - 19:13:30
whoa neat! It's very busy, but all the details are what make it awesome.
lorelai 2006/4/8 - 15:9:52
Awesome! Your pictures always look so earthy to me :)
naty 2006/4/12 - 20:44:50
this really appeals to me o-o.. i love dreadlocks..(Eccino man) great pic! :D
bananarana 2006/4/17 - 11:46:18
Ahh, such confusion. Gotta love it. =)

Haaa I'm sick of this drawing ! I ended up erasing 3/4 of it, lost about 5h of work on it because of the infamous "whoops forgot to save before I closed the window" syndrom, deleted the wrong layer twice, etc.
p_b 2006/3/31 - 19:36:54
wow the shading is so soft looking O_O
I love the hair!
mitsu 2006/3/31 - 20:25:13
Stunning! It looks very smooth and meticulous and professional. :] I, too, dig the hair.
kiwi 2006/3/31 - 21:53:2
Wow... O_O The shading is awesome...! It's so smooth and nice...I love the hair and the flower at the top looks so pretty! The wings are awesome...just...everything looks great! Good job on this! I hope you're able to overcome your closing-the-window-without-saving syndrome soon. I love it! XD
tanhuitian 2006/4/2 - 8:44:49
Lovely looking hair. T__T I wish I had hair like hers. Nice details.
lorelai 2006/4/2 - 19:0:14
senobdec 2006/4/2 - 22:16:10
*thumbs up* Geeks out. I dig the soft hair. Very neat designs on the collar too.
bananarana 2006/4/17 - 11:47:54
Very lovely! You're not alone in the Whups, Forgot To Save Before Quitting My Browser syndrome. X3 I love the coloring on this one, it's so soft! You have a great eye for detail; that outfit is wonderful. I wish I could see more of it.
