Ellen Page by vivsters Ellen Page by vivsters
My Friday evening masterpiece! =D Ellen Page (Ariadne in Inception). Took me a long time...

I did this mostly for hair practice. Much more detailed than my previous sketches. So her eyes/nose/mouth are a little off, and her face is a little smudged. It took me so long shading in for the strands of hair... and it's not as detailed as what I've seen other people do. I think I need to have an 8B pencil... the darkest I have right now is 6B, and it's not dark enough. I think the neck needs more shading... but, it's already scanned, so I'm too lazy to do that =P

Hope you like! =D Gonna take a break from sketching and do some disney :love:

I love this piece very much. The hair to me is perfect and it seems like it is actually real. The eyes are phenomenal and very detailed and not that spaced apart or too close. The nose is adorable but it needs some work on. I understand what you were trying to go for but the angle is off. The other nostril should be showing a little more. The lips are cute but they need to be defined a bit more and the space between the nose and lips need that depth as well. The chin is cute but not exactly defined. It's like she doesn't have the chin. Otherwise, this piece is very well done. I am excited to see more of your work! Keep it up!

Well it's more detailed than the realism I am attempting right this very second!! I never did have the patience for hair but you have managed to pull it off gorgeously! i also love your way of shading; at firts it looks just like random lines ot me but then I look at it as a whole again and then get all slackjawed ;p And the darkest pencil I have is a 2B...that might explain why I can never get the black parts dark enough!
Anyways, fantastic work! :D

Well your practice payed off well. the hair detail is very fine, esp. with keeping small whites in there, help define it alot more. great job :)

Ellen Page =) (Ariadne in Inception... also the girl from Juno)

I use sketching pencils (2B, 4B, 6B), soft eraser (the kind that is like playdoh but erases), and tissues to blend...

I use a reference picture so that I know what I'm drawing/what it needs to look like =D

if its a really good movie, i watch it in theaters.. but china doesnt showcase many movies, because they're only allowed a certain number of non-chinese movies a year...

i love tim burton movies! especially edward scissorhands..

and yes, those are kneadable erasers

haha im not sure about that. well censorship is strict.. but they don't care about pirated movies and books and stuff. everything is super cheap here, so quality isn't guaranteed. but the imported stuff is really expensive.
