I've got my eye on you.


Just tell me what you think....for real.

What do you think of this?  I am looking for the truth here.   i will not be offended if you want to say it sucks.  I am a grandma so i know i am biased.  My grand daughter Meadow drew this with charcoals.  She turned 14 in January.   She does not take art classes in school.  I think it is exquisite.   My mother was an artist who studied at the Art Institute in Chicago.  Ii hope lottajoy sees this.  I greatly admire her work.  Coffey, if you see this please ask her to pop over here.  Thanks!

Thanks to Coffeypot, the internet version a virtual love god extraordinaire, I'm here.

I HATE to critique on blogs. In person I could do physical moves with a pencil and that little 14 year old future artist would own the keys to the kingdom. My specialty is eyes, so I sea a lot of room for improvement, but I've seen HUNDREDS of grown adults in need of much more instructions. She will learn as time passes. So I'll just give a few suggestions, and I'm including a post that took me two hours to find for you. One portrait in particular is a pencil drawing of an unknown man who will be LOWER on this post. If she enlarges it, she will see where the MIRACLES happen in drawing REALISTIC eyes.

First, the iris needs to be PERFECTLY round. This eye is elliptical. (oval). Mother nature supplies a meager amount of eyelashes, with fewer on the bottom lid.

The bottom lid should be brought up higher, and with less "curve"

Highlights and shadows are missing, but that takes time. Lots of time, which your talented niece has plenty of.

I'm including a very informative post that your niece should study CLOSELY.

I hope this helped, as I did it from a sincere desire to HELP, not CRITIQUE.

I think it's brilliant. It's similar to Tamara de Lempicka. A Polish bird popular in the late 20's and 30's. she's a talent (your grandaughter).

I dont know anything about art even though my daughter is an art educator student in college. She didn't get that talent from me, that's for sure, but I can tell what is pretty and what is not. I think this is impressive.
