The face of an angel image in progress. Done with H2-H7 pencil, on cardboard. Whoa, seems alot of people have made different comparisons with several ladies (Alanis Morisette, Jennifer Jason Lee). And the person is...(drumroll)....Shery Crow, the singer, from her album, The Globe Sessions. If anyone would like me to post the image so you can compare, let me know and I will do so, if it's possible, that is....

say what? i've been in here before and i didn't leave a comment! *smacks self on hand* i sat staring at the thumbnail for a minute and then it was like "ahh Sheryl!" ran to get my copy of the globe sessions and hey spot on! i've also copied the cover of the cd, first page in my sketchbook but damn your's is way better!Nah, I bet your rendition is better than mine, and you're just being kind...hehehe.....

This is great! Actually it's better than that. The realism in this face is phenomonal!!Thank you, Duncan!

Hey Duncan is here, I'm not surprised. he has a sense for skills. Richard, I think this is the most realistic piece in your whole gallery. All your angels are divine and beautiful and beyond all our capacities and perfect, yeah I saw all comments and they are all right. Gabriel is still my favourite angel. But I must agree with Duncan, the realism in this face is the best.(Blushing) Thank you, Anneke. And I have to agree with you and Duncan. I do feel that this is my best example of realism, facially speaking. I hope to be able to recreate something like this...

Ha! I *knew* it was Sheryl just from the thumbnail! I never saw the Sheryl image from The Globe Sessions, either. :14ats self on back:: I don't see the Alanis comparison.... But then, I don't see it in myself and some people say I look like her. :21hrugs:: Good job! Sincerely, from your biography picture, I don't see any comparision with Alanis, but hey, it's all subjective. But, I am glad that you enjoy the image and that you were able to tell who it is. Thanks!

To comment, or not to comment.. that is the question.. for whether tis nobler in the mind to stare and oogle the picture or to take up the keyboard and write a short note.. and by reviewing, go on.

Hmm.. ::lives dangerously:: Wow. I like this.

I like how her eyes and mouth are so life-like and the rest of her features are sortof fake in contrast. Very different.

I like how the eyes seem to have meaning, and a lot of emotion behind them... I think its a very good drawing (Myself, Im not a very good artist.).

The lips and the nose are what really, really amaze me... while many can do good eyes - though not nearly as good as yours, generally - noses and lips are tricky, and, well, *wow*! You've definitely mastered them, and I think this one shows that off nicely! Brill work, as always!
