Portrait #2 - The mirror


Hi friends!
Today I wanted to show you a drawing I made for my art class a few weeks ago. The subject was "the mirror creates the event" (I know it sounds weird, I wasn't sure how to translate it from french). Basically, the mirror had to have an important and active role and make something happen. I chose to do a drawing because I love to draw. The "event" I chose to create is more of a question: what are this women's true emotions? I tried to make both sides of the drawing as identical as possible, using a grid, besides from the tears and the smile of course.
And I hate the hair. It just looks so cartoony, in a bad way. It doesn't look very good in real life, but the pictures makes it even worse. Anyway, I was in a rush to finish the project before the deadline and that's what happens when you try to draw hair to fast.
Also, some of my friends thought she looked like Angelina Jolie, what do you think?
Love, Elsa

    1. Thank you Dian! It took me a while to find an idea I liked but our art subjects are always pretty cool and leave a lot of room for our own ideas.
