Svet doesn’t actually look like a Disney Princess in real life. I somehow turned her into one while drawing her portrait, mainly by making her eyes far too large. She does have beautiful big eyes, but not as ridiculously big as I’ve drawn them!
Everything in this portrait is slightly out of proportion and place ( I mean, what is going on with that left arm?), creating more of a caricature than a portrait, but I was so absorbed in my process that I didn’t see this until I was finished.
And this is where posting all my drawings keeps me honest! We all have good days and bad days when it comes to making art, but I always learn something from the process. Today I learned that I really should try not to get so caught up in the process when making digital art, that I should take more breaks, step back and look at what I’m doing, try to see how it looks from more of a distance. And that’s valuable learning. I also enjoyed the drawing process so it was a valuable experience too.
