Those Who Enter Here Never Leave by OliveArtOlive Those Who Enter Here Never Leave by OliveArtOlive
Hear the sigh of the trees,
Those who enter here never leave.
And the rangers stream out of their cabins,
They are the hunters, we are the rabbits and
Maybe we don't want to be found,
Maybe we don't want them tracking us down.
- Rangers, A Fine Frenzy



I've wanted to draw a lot of hair for a while, so when I saw this picture of Taylor Momsen from The Pretty Reckless I had to try. (Never listened to a single song, but she's pretty xD)
There are some parts I'm in love with and other I want to kick myself for. But I think I'll be putting this in my portfolio for college either way. :la:

:bulletred::bulletred:
Bristol Board
Graphite Pencils
Paintbrushes for blending
Somewhere between 25 and 30 hours.
:bulletred::bulletred:

I feel cheeky for asking but any critique or comments will be massively helpful. :huggle:


I don't want to beg your pardon,
And I don't want to ask you why,
But if I were to go my own way
Would I have to pass you by?
- Black Flies, Ben Howard

TAYLOR MOMSEN!
I love your shading, but I kinda feel her eyes are really spaced out, and the two irises are kinda off...You could really afford to be more messy with the hair, since it looks too neat and too much like spaghetti.

(You should really listen to Make Me Wanna Die :D)

You know, I think she is a little bit bog-eyed. xD
I agree, it does all look a bit stiff doesn't it? Thanks so much for the comments. :huggle:

I did and it's not bad! I have no idea why I haven't listened to them before.
