This is another head/face study of a Tolkien character. I like this one better, and spent more time on it, but it still needs work.
This is Arwen, daughter of Elrond. I used the same photo of my sister as a base for this as I used for the pic of Éowyn, I just changed the features, etc., but that's why the pose is the same. I used a picture of Liv Tyler as an influence for the eyes, and mouth, because I think she's very pretty...but I tried to change it to be more Elfin, more graceful, to have softer features... So it's not meant to look like Liv Tyler, but merely try to capture the shape of her lips, and the glint in her eyes. If it looks TOO much like her tell me, cos that's NOT my intention.
I'd like suggestions, again on the hair...I'm not great at hair...And shading...please. Especially highlights.
Edit: Yeah, um...I noticed, and have known for some time now, that her chin is smudged and therefore looks like she has some sort of 5:OO shadow going on. But she doesn't. It's just that that area happend to be one of the spots my wrist rested while drawing and no matter how much I erase the smudge won't go away!! HELP?!?!
