So here's number 4 of 10 of the American Idols this season.
I'm excited to be getting them done now. :P

Didi looks a bit like Taylor Swift here. Surprising.

Should I continue to post the rest of the idol drawings that I plan on doing? Hmm...
I'm a bit curious.

Anyway, here it is. :3

This is expertly drawn. Seems like you captured how the shadows around eyes are darker than the rest of her skintone, which makes it more dramatic and engaging. :)

I am glad you think the eyes and the shades and shadows makes it so engaging. That's a great compliment, so thank you :hug:
I really enjoyed drawing it, and eyes are my absolute favorite thing to draw. :XD:
So thank you :D

I love how haunting her eyes looked=) What kind of paper do you use by the way?
xnicoley Jul 14, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
I apologize for the long response. :XD:
Honestly this will probably seem bad, but I used plain computer paper on this straight out of my printer. :XD: It's nothing special or anything like that. I do use good art paper for other drawings I do, but with the whole set of American Idol drawings, I can't really afford to use my good paper on all 10 of them. :shrug: Art supplies are so expensive and sometimes I try to stay cheap, haha.
Using regular computer paper is very difficult when trying to shade with a lot of detail.
Other than that, on other drawings, I use strathmore drawing paper. (I think it's 300 series?)
but lately, on drawings other than the idols, I have been using bristol smooth vellum paper.

Wow I really salute you I have difficulty shading even on art paper and I've tried printing paper and in the end I was so rattled by it I swore never to use them again.:D I did something silly now; I've bought watercolor paper and tried to use it to draw portraits:P Maybe I should have used the smoother side I don't know:D
