Jessica Alba by UnexpectedFantasy Jessica Alba by UnexpectedFantasy
A drawing of Jessica Alba. Im not really a big fan, but she looked pretty in the pic, and I needed practice on the hair and shading. I think the hair turned out pretty good, but I kinda messed up on the shading. But anyways, I hope you like it. And Happy New Year!!! :)

Well this is a beautiful piece, and like you said, the hair came out very well. The shading is very well done, and the the hair glints in the light, as real hair does.

I think that the shading on the face is also well done, but from what I've noticed about the most successful portraits that I've seen is that there is rarely an outline, or any solid line used anywhere on the face, but most especially around the ear.

See link [link] and look at the outline around the chin. It is blended into the shadow of the chin, and it fades out long before it gets to the ear.

All you need to do is get the blending and softening brush and soften the outline of the face until it blends into the shadow, and blend the highlights alittle more around the eyebrows, and I think the piece will look really superb :D
What do you think?

I'm here on behalf of :iconselftaughtartist: because your piece was in the group's critique requested folder. Your work is pretty impressive, I'd say (: the only thing I'd humbly suggest is that you smooth your stroke a little, especially for what concerns the edges of the face, and also of the eyes. You could also try to darken more areas such as lips and eyes corners, to give more volumeand depht to the flesh. Anyway, I agree with you about the hair, you did well, above all you must have really taken your time! Keep up practicing, you'll see amazing results ; )

I'm here on behalf of :iconselftaughtartist: because your piece was in the group's critique requested folder... :) the over all picture is really great! I only think the shading needs more practice :) the shadows on her cheeks are to dark, they should be softer and a little lighter but otherwise it's an awesome drawing and her hair and eyes are beautifully draw :) good job!

I love the eyes! Great job with the realistic base of them. However, I have drawn realist people before and read books on drawing humans. Keep in mind that different eye color have an effect on how you will shade the eyes. Even if the picture you copy from 'appears' to be a solid color, you might need to mess around to make the appearance of black and white shading look better. Try to show the difference between the pupal and ires, otherwise it some what looks like a black hole in the eyes.

I do admit that I love the hair as well! I like how you drew the stories of the, and the strands that pop from the side, what you could work on his the shading of the face. You have a cartoon like feeling in this picture. The way you shaded the face looks like she's a human robot because it's very solid like, understand where I'm coming from?

Also take a rain check on how you did the ear. I feel that when you did the ear you got sloppy because there is not shading in the ear it self. I think I found the picture where you drew this ([link]|2;d|0XKLHQjHKhN5uM:) Just watch your ears.

Other than that I like the picture. Look up some books on how to draw the face if you haven't already. Even if you have, there is always something new to learn!^_^。
