my entry for the realism challenge.. XD
u'll probably see some more anime characters in realistic-ish style from me soon.. maybe.. i dunno.. if i get good feebacks perhaps..? jk.. XD
done in 9x12 sketchbook using 2B staedtler pencil.. i think im gonna have troubles with this kind of realism coz i cant get the hair i wanted with this grade of pencil.. but i figured realism portraits are mostly drawn with B pencils so i thought i'd try but i think i love mechanical pencils better after all.. XD *just because im lazy to sharpen to get the edges really pointy for details and such* XD
not sure if i like the texture.. it's the sketchpad fault.. and i got tired and lazy *as usual* to finish the other side so there u go.. i think i had enough of this so it's unfinished but i think thats still acceptable..
ps.. those who have seen me draw this thought im drawing myself.. heheh.. substitute for that wip of my self portrait i guess..? some resemblance though not that much.. but i'll take that as a compliment.. thanks.. lol........
