Young Elizabeth Taylor

Posted Jun 17, 2005, 9:38:57 AM
This is a drawing I did of Elizabeth Taylor using a picture I found of her on the internet for refrence. She's a crazy old mental patient now, but back then she sure was beautiful. Done in pencil and maybe a little charcoal (I can't remember!) on plain white paper.

    She went crazy? What? I didn't know that. Poor woman. She was cool.

    Oh, right. And you've done a lovely portrait of her. It's very soft, and the eyes were captured beautifully.

      Well, she's not LEGALLY insane, although I think she's become a little bit nutty judging from some of the stuff I've heard over the years, ha ha. Thank you for your comments minimaid!! Smile

      I agree with Minimaid. This is indeed a lovely portrait. The eyes are perfect.

    Elisabeth who? Huh? Am I missing something?

    Anyway, this pic looks really beautiful, with it's shading and realistic appearence! =)

    Nitpick: Is her chin little too sharp? I dno...

    Two Thumbs Up up, way up!

      She was a popular film actress in the 50's-70's. And I just noticed right now when you pointed out the chin...it does look a little pointy. Thankyou for your comments Brethesen! Smile

    I think she went crazy because of all those husbands she had to put up with. *laughs* You did a beautiful job on this one EBS. It looks exactly like her! You captured her grace and beauty wonderfully. Well done!!!

      Hmm you could be right about that...or maybe they all left because she was crazy.. ha ha. Thank you so much Lady Anime Smile

    Oh, this is just lovely!! You're so skilled at rendering in this style. Keep it up!!

    Wow, very nice work! Love the highlight in the hair! Good job!
  • Jun 17, 2005
    It's a well done portrait. I'm sure the the subtle 3/4 view made her nose a bit difficult, but you've put together quite a wonderful image.
    • Jun 17, 2005
      Oh yes...the nose was hard No Smile I used up a lot of eraser on the nose...hehe. Thank you very much Silverbane! Smile

    *claps* WOW! This looks really wonderful! I can't draw real people to save my life. I just suck at it. X_X

    This is indeed beautiful. You did a very good job on her, especially on the shading.

    amazing!

    ^^ She is a bit of a fanaticical person, isn't she? ^^ You have some beutiful contrasts in this. A suggestion with portaits and dark hair I've found- if you give wispy bits of hair, even thought the camera doesn't pic it up, it makes the subject less cut out looking. Nothing heavy- light wispy lines in the direction the hair is going. Don't join it to the rest of the hair though.

    Now this is what I call art! It's absolutely beautiful and I can't help but stare in awe at the wonderful shading. You've realy outdone yourself here EBS and I hope to see more work of this caliber.
