Commission - Paula by Cataclysm-X Commission - Paula by Cataclysm-X
This is a commission from some really nice people. They asked me if I could draw their daughter Paula!

I had a lot of fun drawing this portrait. The hair was all made up by myself. In the original reference picture some parts of the hair were formed a tail, the rest hang along her shoulders. So what I tried to do, was to make it look like there was some kind of breeze which made her hair flow.

I'm so glad they like my drawing, especially Paula since it was her present!


Finished this one end of May. :) Approx 15 to 20 hours of time.
Mostly done with mechanical pencils, tissues, tortillions, (kneadable) eraser and some regular pencils.

Notice the difference in responses for normal or original work compared to fanart......it honestly makes me sad. I don't have a problem with fanart (I draw it too), but some of my most popular and not even my best work is that Narutard crap. XD You probably don't mind, but sometimes it gets to me y'know? I'm thankful for every comment and fave I get, but I spend a really long time on original work too! Lol

Thank you very much my dear friend. :) How I love to spend hours on a drawing! The longer I draw, the better I feel (and the better the final result...err... most of the time).

yeah, that's the way i am... when i draw, you don't have time to think about things that are going on... bad things mainly... you're kinda out there, in your own little world =)

You're welcome sweetie!!! Yup yup, I know but I understand too :) I remember a little while back you were asking though if you could do a digital portrait of Palin instead. I haven't had a chance to respond yet but I would absolutely LOVE that! :D If you still want to do that instead, lemme know and I'll send you some details and references :)

Gorgeous portrait - very lifelike and nice structure behind the face - excellent attention to detail and use of a wide range of values in the pencil work. Great job!
