Amanda Palmer by Leongeds Amanda Palmer by Leongeds
Okay I made this portrait today... I don't know what I think about it :ohnoes: It has just gotten to the point where you're stared long enough at a picture that you can't decide whether you like it or not. :P

Anyway, I love this amazing woman! <3

EDIT: OH, I forgot the reference picture... ^^; Here it is: [link]

(Haha...lol...sort of maybe...I guess I'll say it has more to do with the look of the movie. The character...or person...isn't actually her...Confused still? I know you are:meow:):giggle:

It isn't totally realistic, but I could easily tell who it was. Looks good! I think you made her face a bit too long, or maybe not the outline of her face... Her mouth stands is too low, when you make a face like that your upper lip lifts up towards your nose and that's not in your drawing. Besides, Amanda just has a big mouth. Hah. And maybe her eyes stand too close to each other? Not sure about that though. What I do know is that I like the way you shaded her face and that I LOVE how you drew her hair!

PS, do you have last.fm?

Thank you so much for the constructive criticism! :glomp: Awesome when people really look at your drawing :) I agree with what you said, I'll try to make it more accurate next time!

Haha, by the time I was drawing it I was like "... this looks nothing like the original picture... oh well I'll just use it as a reference then and shadow as I please!" xD

Nope, I dont :ohnnoes: I don't even know what that is!!

Well I like looking at your drawings and giving criticism in general, so it's a win-win situation. I'm always afraid people will take my I" don't like this and that" the wrong way, so mostly I just click it away without commenting. I'm glad you appreciate it :aww:

Last.fm is where you got your reference from! It's a website that registers what you listen to, recommends new artists and bands based on what you like and you can find people with the same musical tase. I really like it, and there are a lot of artists that I found out about because of that website. Even found Amanda there, if I'm not mistaken (:

Yeah, I can see why you feel like that... a lot of people just takes criticism too personally and get offended. I think it's silly really, I mean people who take the time to look at your pictures and make a thoughtful comment do it because they care and it'll help you improve! :3 So yeah, a bit silly to take criticism the wrong way. ^^

Oh I see! Wow I feel stupid now, haha xD But it sounds awesome, I'm gonna have to check it out! :)

Than you very much! Usually people wouldn't be able to tell who I was drawing in the past, so that's an improvement! xD

And thank you for the fave as well! :hug:
