Draw This Again by JazzySatinDoll Draw This Again by JazzySatinDoll
Almost exactly 4 years of improvement. :)

I've always been really proud of the 2008 portrait, as it was the first proper portrait I ever drew. Since then, I've only really practiced portraiture in the past year or so, and I've moved from graphite to Photoshop :XD:.

Nice to think I've improved even a little - but there's still so far to go!


Original: [link]

NB: This is a reproduction of a promotional poster for The Dark Knight. I do not own the image or character portrayed.

And a note to the heads of the competition: I understand that this will probably be pulled cause it's a promo image, but it was my first portrait so I just wanted to see how I'd improved since my first.

this does look pretty nice, and so what if it was from a picture. I mean clearly you learned from it, by observing the proportions, and even if it's a limited view, still pretty good.
just ignore the troll, as I don't think he will be on this site much longer. after all he's in trouble with the admins as it is. only a matter of time until the ban hammer hits him

The point of this picture was for the artist to improve, which they quite blatantly /have/ done. Saying that it's more difficult to draw from one's imagination doesn't even belong here. That's bringing in a completely irrelevant argument. While it's true, there is no doubt that JazzySatinDoll has become a far better artist than how they were four years ago, and whether or not they conjured up the image themselves or drew from a photograph does not matter. One cannot improve without drawing inspiration from real life. :)
(This was in response to that idiotic hater btw. I love your art!)

Thank you very much for the support - it was very much appreciated. :)
The commenter descended quite quickly into plain trolling and was quite obscene so I decided to hide the comments.
