Angelina Jolie by Rajacenna Angelina Jolie by Rajacenna
I saw the movie Mr. and Mrs. smith last week, I love that movie and I thought by myself angelina is so beautiful why didnt I draw her yet? So now I drew her.:D

I also made wip video, I have the link on my profile page [link]

Its exactly one year ago that I started realistic drawing, cant believe how time flies.. XD I learned a lot this year but I still have to learn a lot. I'm still testing out new techniques, I cant seem to be happy with the result of my drawings... I always think, next time Im gonna draw much better. I always try to improve myself and hopefully one day I will be happy with the result of my drawings:D.

I used
- B, 3B and 9B pencils
- tissues
- Kneaded eraser

Your drawings are amazing. They look so life like it is hard to tell they are drawn and not photos.

You should be very proud of this. It's as good as any drawing I've seen!

Fantastic realism, the technique is seamless and consistent and you never question who it is you are seeing (or who might also be seeing you!)  I am glad I am not the only one here suffering from the demons of self-critiquing.  I don't like ANY of my work, I always want more from it than what I end up with.  One day, here is hoping we can be the artists we imagine but in your work I would say you are already there!  Oh and I agree with you, Mr And Mrs SMITH was an AWESOME movie!

I'm trying to get into realistic drawing because of my hope to get into a specialized high school. This is very good for a year I must say
Sadly I only have a few months before auditions

Do you know I'll say're exactly like me. You have perception of not-so-happy syndrome lol! I enjoy what I do but I'm never completely satisfied towards the end.

I am a very picky person with detail and captivation but believe've nailed this one to photorealism especially in terms of tones and values. After all reality is nothing more than different aspects of light and dark to create realism. You should be really happy with with what you've done well I am!! So, carry on from your heart and draw away. As Bob Ross once said, if you're entirely satisfied with a painting you've done you may as well pack up, as it's the dissatisfaction the makes us improve.Hug :happybounce: :D (Big Grin) Heart

A friend saw a 2% realistic drawing and he said:
This cannot be a drawing! This had to have been an app or something.
So i sent him a link to this, and made it clear that it was you who did it.
I didn't repost it or anything.

If something like that drawing is impossible, WONDERS like this must be miracles. ~.~

I dont care what others say about using a means to blur or to make an affect... i think it is brilliant. and it is very much so a skill to use tools like that because it is still difficult to even make sure it doesnt go off and make the work look messy.  you know how to place your shading in every work you do and i thought this was a photo. which to me makes this piece even more special. using smugde tools or blendies of any kind does not make you any less of an amazing artist. i know i m not skill full enough in my own work and i am still practicing but what i can tell is a bad ass piece of art with great detail. you are amazing and i want you to keep doing you. this is your style of doing things and i cant be any more proud of an artist and their work like i am yours. great job!!!!

That's the case with us all, and more importantly because you think like that the only outcome of you continuing your quest to master the skill will be steady improvement that can only come through time, dedication, patience and continuous self criticism. The best crit to get is from your peers even those here in DA.  While general traffic leaves loads of comments, they don't really help with self growth. That is one thing I miss from days long gone in college was class and lecturer crits on all works done.

It seems you use the smudge/soften on your tone variation excessively. While that's ok if you are trying to achieve that as an effect. But in all art genre's part of the leaning process is to learn when to use an effect and when not to. In your case the over usage of it has left most of your works looking smudged. Cross hatching, stroke direction, pressure, thickness and flow in your pencil strokes are important. Use those strokes to carry light and tone changes and you will open up a new level of control over your skill. Yes your hand will have to do 5 times more work, but your final results will be that much better.

There are tons of techniques that have been adopted by history and accepted as Quid pro quo to the standards that are thought worldwide to art students in higher education. Art theory and history is just as important as practical because it bridges the gap and gives understanding to each of the techniques on when how and if you should apply them. The most important thing to remember is that your rendered result should should keep the viewers focus inside/on your work and that your application flow should guide the view. Attention to texture direction(Bark on a tree, wrinkles in material, the surface details of skin, etc) careful control over contrasting elements and where they are positioned in your work. Lighting and shadowing and element location, proportion and composition. There are a few templates out there that you can use, but the safest and most accepted one to run with is Phi also known as the Golden Ratio.

In sketching, stroke pressure can define light and tone difference as well as the obvious dark and light filled areas, it can also  be used to portray depth and carry emotion hard pressure strokes are aggressive verses light strokes being passive.

That being said...Your perception of space is quite accurate so you shouldn't have any problems with drawing what you see. I recommend practice in drawing still life's to exercise the bridge between visible space and remembered space. 

Hope my imput helps, keep up the good work :)

incredible! Especially as you've only been doing realistic art for a year. I've been doing it for 6 months, I hope I can get something as good as this in another 6!
