Artwork of the Week, 8/19

Shara Yumul, Sarah
16 x 20″, Graphite

This was a summer homework assignment that was turned in this week. There’s a lot that I love about it, for obvious reasons–the shading is fantastic, the rendering of the drapery is great, and the likeness is very well-done. The detail in the face and the hair is strong as well.

That being said, a few problems, too–the grid transfer shows through in the bottom right, the shadows are patchy in quite a few places, the outline of the drapery is too dark in spots, and the left side of the face is incorrect.

So, there are a few things to work on, but you really can’t expect much more from a summer project. I was really, really happy to see this come in, and after a little bit of work, Shara should have a strong piece on her hands.
