The Virgin by Fantaasiatoidab The Virgin by Fantaasiatoidab
I completely messed up this one :( It was looking quite good but then I started adding some shadows and next second the drawing was ruined. So yeah, I know it looks bad, but I'm still happy that I drew it (I haven't done much Sherlock recently).

:bulletpurple: Used : 5H, HB, F, 3B, 7B, mechanical pencils (0,3&0,7mm), uni pin fine line pens (0,2&0,5mm), uni-ball white pen, blending stick, A4 paper

Awesome and realistic...i like the way use contrast to make your painting more effective.....you caught his essence very well
and as you mentioned in some areas shadows are too dark...but it still looks good

Heh, I've been there, done that. Sometimes the rough is as good as it gets, yeah? It is a technically perfect piece though, it does showcase your pencil handling and eye for detail. Never wasted!

No way! It's not completely messed up. I think it's just the left side of the drawing or the right side of his face that doesn't look all that right. I actually love all the other details :aww: The hair looks really great even the clothing :) And I really love how neat the whole drawing looks! :hug

I wouldnt say its ruined but I do see what you mean. It feels a bit off or unbalanced. By no means horrible. Its definitely a good likeness and thats always a good thing. Some incredible hills & valleys in that hair of his. I like that, its very dimensional. I know when one finishes a drawing they just want to move on, especially if they arent happy with it. If you should still feel unfulfilled with this one, I think if the right (his left) side was darkened up a bit it would probably ease your sorrows a little. :) But if you bury it in the ground and never speak its name again, I'll understand that too. :D

It is heavily shadowed, but it only makes it look dramatic. Fabulous in my book, if it counts for anything.
