Original Creation

Japanese lady

Jin7 13 Apr 2020

This is my first attempt with a pencil.
I was going to draw a Japanese actress, but it didn't work.
Unfortunately I couldn't draw like that lady.



Voy Kay Conqueror of Challenges

Still a very pretty lady Jin. Never thought you were also this good with pencils!!

Dear Voy Thank you for you compliment.
I never thought I could drew like this.

This is super! Great start Jin!

I mean with portraits and drawing!

Dear Sunnylady
Thank you for your comment.
I drew this picture about 5 years ago, and I drew about two other pictures in addition to this work, but I haven't drawn it now. As I wrote at the beginning, dissimilarity is a fatal flaw in drawing portraits. As Bob said, drawing portraits requires special talent.
Although I seems to be suitable for landscape painting, I would like to draw if there is another opportunity. .
Speaking of portraits, this video really moved me.

I tried pencil myself and my husband, none of us looked like us. Yes, totally agree portraiture is a special talent. I guess understanding of the skeleton and muscles is needed for that to create shape.
Thanks for the link. This lady is the artist's wife. I am amazed how he painted her!

This lady looks very beautiful with a bit childish face to me. She is great as a portrait of a person.

Dear sunnylady Thank you for your comment.
You may not know many japanese women look younger than they really are.
There is also a story that when a 30-year-old woman went to Hawaii, the clerk of the shop did not sell her alcohol because she was thought a minor.
The model of my work also looks childish lady.

Speaking of lady ,a gentleman I know who went to most countries said to me that russian ladies are most beautiful in the world.

Thank you Jin. I think every woman in the world is most beautiful to their loved ones.
I cannot comment further. :)

Wow! What a lovely comment .
