This is the character 'Tauriel' played by actress Evangeline Lilly in the movie "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug". I tried to capture the soft look in her eyes. I really enjoyed drawing this piece. Thanks for visiting!
I sketched this poetic piece from the warmth of my car on a cold winter day. The variety in the tree was very interesting. I used vine charcoal, which is very soft, to lay in the basic shapes, then I used my kneaded eraser to help refine the shapes. Enjoy!
A portrait of a friend done with charcoal on bristol vellum. This one was quite a challenge and is a bit overworked. But the end result is very satisfactory to me. I believe I got her likeness quite well. Thanks for visiting!
