Zooey, take 2

Zooey Deschanel, take two.
Take one: here

The reference was a really gorgeous shot - link
Ehh, I kinda rushed this one. Wanted to get it done with. I'm not too happy with the face):
But I like the hair. And the bow.

I don't plan on drawing lace ever again.
I don't particularly like drawing full-body shots, now that I think about it. After the failed Matt attempt, and now this, I think I'm going to revert back to full-face detailed shots(:
Small faces are really hard to do well.


2010 completed portrait count: 2!

Matt attempt

Matt Doyle
Broadway's Bye Bye Birdie, Spring Awakening
He also sang the role of Peter in the album version of Bare

I am not really motivated to finish this because:
1. I don't think it really looks like him.
2. I really really suck at doing dark tones. And fabrics. And dark toned fabrics. (I probably need to buy a better 8B...and I need a 9B...)

but mainly because of 1.
Because I don't really want to invest a lot of time in something when I know I won't be happy with the result. So for now, I'm leaving this one like this. Expect to see his face on here again though, because I'm definitely not giving up on drawing him. I just need a better/easier ref... hahah. This one didn't really have a lot of shadows.

If you don't know who he is watch:
He's pretty much amazing(:

Emma & Will

Emma Pillsbury and Will Schuester from Glee
(Played by Jayma Mays and Matthew Morrison)

A really quick sketch. Drew Emma basically with no eraser, and then I screwed up Will. So that's why he looks like Frankenstein here.
I love Glee though, and I can't wait till episodes come back in April! Especially since Jonathan Groff is going to be guest starringg!

I've started a new line art. I don't know how it's going to look, because the face is at an angle in the ref, and I'm really bad at angled faces... I'll probably use this one as a practice at drawing and shading textures though because it's almost a full body shot. And he's wearing jeans.
