Otsuka Ai by redsunsetxiii Otsuka Ai by redsunsetxiii
it's the Jpop singer Otsuka Ai, who sings very pretty songs or gets uber hyper and goes crazy. o.O; but yea, still not satisfied with the drawing but then it'll never be put up. I still hate noses and mouths...and that lace was a pain. and the hand. >_< and the ref pic I was using had so much shadow that I made up stuff.

but I'm through with it so as Ai-chan would say イエイ! 

HB graphite and mechanical pencil.

Very awsome job. Dont beat yourself up, you captured her beauty VERY well! :aww:
harmoniaSINGS Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2007
don't worry! it turned out nicely! but i'll tell you one thing, an artist can never be satisfied with their work. if so, then you're either to conceited or just something else. lol. everyone sees artwork differently!
MzSparky Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2007
Awww, I just recently became a fan of her... she's so cute and pretty!!! Thanks for drawing this!

That is awesome. The hair is absolutely beautiful. I would recommend you to use darker pencils though as it can seem a bit grey. Awesome nonetheless
ilovemyringostar Featured By Owner May 10, 2007
Beautiful job! Looks exactly like her. The texture of the hair is really perfect~
zkirby Featured By Owner May 1, 2007
Everything about this is awesome!! Oh but she looks a little chubby though. But still, I LOVE IT! (:

It's amazing what a pencil will do in the right hands.

You have done very well here. Good work.
Kissu-Kisshu Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2006
Wow! This is amazing. I've tried drawing her twice already, but I just can't seem to draw her at all right. >.< The mouth is my biggest flaw. XD(Then again, I haven't drawn realism much at all, yet.)

Anywho, this is very beautiful. Especially the hair. =3

great job, once again shading on the hair is amazing :)
akasora Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2006
Wow I don't think my vocabulary is good enough to describe how beautiful I think this is. for sure going on my fav list.
Mrcrapinson Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2006  Student Digital Artist
This is amazing!!! I think that the only thing that I don't like about this is that the backround is a bit empty... maybe if you added some decoration lines on the corners it would look a bit better. If you do add something, I would seriously consider to recomend this as a DD =D
neurophonix Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2006  Professional Photographer
i like it quite a bit, it would be nice if some of the areas had some darker darks but even without i think its quite nice. im especially fond of how the hair is
X-GloomCookie-X Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2006  Professional Photographer
This is beautiful, you have nothing to complain about! I think you did a marvelous job on the mouth and hands, especially since those are my hardest spots too.
