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.

Well thanks for your concerns, but honestly, if you haven't got anything constructive to say, you're better off not saying it. And no, simply telling me not to draw portraits is not constructive.

Excuse me, although this is not my work I'm afraid I have to object. Being able to replicate an image may not be as difficult as conjuring up a picture from the imagination, but the artist here obviously has great skill in order to improve the way they did.
