How did the activity made me feel? 

This activity made me feel a little nervous at first because I knew that it was timed and I had to stop drawing after a few minutes later.

Why do you think this was so? 

I think I felt a little nervous because I was afraid that it was unrecognizable by the person I drew and it would show no similarities. Part of me didn’t want to disappoint her and make her look less charming than she is.

What would you change about your illustration?

If I were to change my illustration, I would have drew her features more similar to her real ones and make her have a friendlier smile in the drawing! 🙂

Do you think your illustration is a good likeness of the person you drew?

I think that there are elements in the drawing that made her look recognizable like her winged eyeliner, rounded spectacles, clothes and accessories but her features like her nose, mouth and the distribution of her features could be improved!

The reason I find her artworks inspiring is because the artist has composed her artwork in a very attention seeking way where she does not only draws beautiful portraits, but includes a narrative on the faces. She has used the fine lines of the pencil and soft watercolors to bring out the femininity of the girls. There is a feel of translucency when the watercolor is overlapping the face, giving off a feel of gentleness and a part of the girl’s identity.

The work of this artist is bold and vibrant (bold strokes and colors). By using mediums such as pencil, pen, watercolor, papers etc, it brings character to the portrait by giving it a more edgy vibe to it.

By using contrasting colors of different pen lines. The artist is able to convey his message in a minimalistic way. The use of pastel colors also makes it soothing for the eyes to view and together with the fine pen lines, gives a delicate feeling to it.
