Latest WIPs by pbird12 Latest WIPs by pbird12
This is likely going to be the next drawing I finish, but there are a few on the go :(

Hoping that posting some very dodgy looking WIPs might motivate me to get a move on!

WIP2 - So, I have a story, this started life as Hilary Duff. I almost binned it since it looks nothing like HD, but then I decided I quite like her anyway, so now she is just girl based on a reference :D Also, note to self - USE A GRID WHEN DRAWING CELEBS :shakefist:

WIP3 - Darkened the background some more and made a start on that hair. I'll just do one more WIP after this one now.

WIP4 - dA have made changes again! The edit thing is all weird :confused: Anyway this is the last WIP for this one and again I apologise for the photo :P

A bit closer - it's kinda blurred but I'll scan the final one :)

*I don't ever upload more than one WIP, but I will keep adding to this as I go*

Thanks for taking a look :heart:
Paula

I've been going through your drawings and they are great. When I draw I can never get this compartmentalized, you draw as if you are just seeing the drawing in the paper and draw until its there. My approach usually involves drawing, seeing the error and fixing it until it looks good (and hoping very hard for no smears). I guess my methods of shade with finger have limits on clarity. I'll have to try this method of just drawing it perfect once.

Thank you for having a look around :) I do draw a bit differently to most people I think, I don't know why really. I guess I like to see bits of my drawing coming together and building up in layers really bores me, so I do small areas at a time. I'm also very messy, so keeping it contained into little areas at a time helps :D

It changes every time I draw hair, but basically I draw a ligh layer and erase some of it then go over it again and erase some of it and so on.

It's looking very nice Paula! :)
So she's just some random female based on a reference. References are just that and if one doesn't follow them at It reminds me of when I had to prepare my comprehensive examination. I was supposed to do spectroscopy of biological molecules but I didn't do biological molecules. So I spent a few hours thinking, how do I sell this on the biological side? I figured out I had better change the title of my thesis and leave the biological part out, so everything in there would be threaded together more nicely. Everything went okay, the committee bought it :giggle:

It should have said "...if one doesn't follow them exactly it is not wrong. It reminds me..."

This kinda looks like a combo of Hilary Duff and Jenna Marbles, but I'm not really sure how. It looks great, though!

Wow, the hair! She looks amazing! And I know it'll probably change for the final version, but I really like the rough texture in the background as well. Great work, can't wait to see it finished! :hug:

Thank you :hug: You know I probably won't do much to the background, it's just going to be simple, but I have a feeling some of that texture is my rubbish photography :(

As it was supposed to be Hilary Duff (I don't know who she is so I can't comment) and you just decided to carry on regardless of the likeness. I propose the title for this piece once complete should be: Duffed Up Hilary. What'cha' Reckon?

I really like it.

I had 'I'm just a girl' planned for this one?

Thank you :heart:

Naaaww noo, then I shall compliment you until you believe it yourself! Trust me, I can go on for a while^^ I think it's good to be insecure in order for us to push ourselves, but it's also really nice to see the value in your artwork! And your artwork is definitely amazing! :3
