I really liked the use of colour in the photography and artwork of “Froot” (and may or may not be a fan of Marina and the Diamonds for a few years, so I’ve been wanting to draw some fanart of Marina because she is so pretty). I have also been looking for some more excuses to practice drawing faces, since I’m bad at those. Killing two birds with one stone, I’m having a go of drawing Marina.
It’s alright-ish. I just wish I was better at sketching, and that this laptop had enough power to record myself again. I’ve sunk three quarters of an hour into this already, and I’ve had to reduce the picture size by a factor of ten so I can work. In case you couldn’t guess, I don’t like working on a laptop.
I’ve also realised that the expression on Marina’s face in my picture in a little more harsh that the actual photo. I’ll make sure I soften it when colouring. Her face is also wider; easy to fix though, once the picture is side-by-side. On the plus side the hair is very accurate, which I’m glad for, and the actual face still looks really nice anyway. It will look very different once coloured anyway. I still like it.
