Angelina Jolie - Lara Croft by tanabatablossom Angelina Jolie - Lara Croft by tanabatablossom
I'm finally finished with this. :faint:

In case you're wondering where her shoulders are, I purposely left them out. I wanted it to look more like a bust type of figure head. As for Lara, I deliberately made an outline around her. If you're also wondering about the look and color of her guns, technically she's holding up two - one in each hand, but at more or less the same height and angle, so you see the top of one (the darker one) and the lighter one in front. I mucked about with the hand so much, that I won't muck round on it any further before my pencil goes through the paper. Anyway, hope you like it.

Thanks for looking! :)

I so love the way how you drew Angelina Jolie. She's so pretty, because of the way how you did her beautiful hair and her elegant-looking face! :love:

Thank you! :D There are so many gorgeous photos of her, I had a hard time choosing. But her gaze looked very intense in this one, and her hair was so elegant, I thought it'd make a nice contrast to the strong Lara. I'm so happy to hear that you like this one. :highfive:

Amazing! You really have a gift for the eyes, you know? In every portrait, they just leap out and snag the viewer, making it impossible for us to look anywhere else... Gorgeous! I love the composition of this--and the profile looks wonderful too! I have a dreadful time with hands, myself, so can completely sympathize about that part (and for what it's worth, I think her hand looks really good! :clap:)--and guns? Don't even get me started! lol! Very cool character piece here! :clap:

Awww thank you! I'm hearing that quite a bit these days. I just love drawing eyes. :D If this one "snagged" you, then I accomplished my goal. I also like the composition of a collage piece. I think it's something I'd like to try more of in the future. Of course, they can't beat your awesome backgrounds that actually "tell a story". Thank you! :D

Hee! Backgrounds are something that work for illustrations like I try to do--for portraits, they're really sort of optional (or can be something simple like varied tones)--not really NECESSARY for the piece (particularly for some of the ones in your gallery, where the focus needs to be on the features and not on extraneous things). And you are the Goddess of eyes, I think--they're always so deep, so realistic...mesmerizing...fantastic! :worship: :D

:rofl: @ Goddess of eyes !!!

I agree with you 100%. There's a balance that needs to be considered when thinking about putting in a background. Some people try to cram too much into a drawing that it's distracting. I on the other hand leave them out completely because I'm too timid to tackle anything. That's a goal I've set for this year. To try and make baby steps in that direction of putting in small details into a background to bring a drawing to life. Now that I have eyes down pretty well, why not, eh? ;)

You're like a walking, talking thesaurus, you know that right? :giggle: :glomp:
