hi matt,

i just finished this drawing & i'm submitting it to a fantasy art club i'd really like to take part in...i tried to push the darks darker than i normally do, but i'm not sure if i overdid it... could you please let me know any suggestions you have?

btw, this is a character from one of my favorite artists (org) put into a different scene :)

forestfaery, I think it's looking great!

I learned to draw from Lee Hammond's books and she pushes 2 major points when drawing anything:
   --to practice tons and then practice more.
   --to go further in darkening those darks, since most folks don't get them nearly dark enough.

Hope this helped.
Jill

hi jill,

after reading your comment & looking at my drawing again, i think i'm going to darken some of the darks around the girl by 1 or 2 steps...i still have to do the foreground details, but i think darkening the darks around her, it'll make her pop a little more...

thank you for the suggestion! :)

It's pleasing to hear that you are going to submit this piece into a fantasy art club.  Firstly, let me congratulate you on a wonderful drawing, you can visually see the effort that you have gone to making this a complete piece of art.  The composition is strong, and your passion for the fantasy genre is evident.  So much detail, I love the hair, and how it floats in the water, the lantern and the foreground.  Superb!
