About the drawing

Olivia Wilde, best-known as Thirteen in House M.D., is the second of the pretty women I mentioned I'd draw some time ago. I came across the reference picture ages ago and fell in love with Olivia's eyes here. I decided I would draw it one day. One day, when I feel I have guts to do it. So, the Wild[e] revelation happened in the end of May :P
I finished her portrait yesterday but couldn't post it due to the severe thunderstorm :lol: I was afraid to turn the PC on, lol. And I've just realized that I posted my previous portrait of Olivia EXACTLY one year ago. It wasn't intentionally, like an anniversary or something. Mysterious things happen! :fear:
In the beginning I really liked the process of creating this portrait. I was happy with her face, with the upper part of background, the right part of the hat... Later it got worse .__. The hair, which isn't even, the left side of the hat, and... worst of all... the GODDAMN BLADES OF GRASS :rage: I was close to give up and hide under my bed for the rest of my life.
But I didn't do it, as you can see. Otherwise I'd not have been typing this, because I'd have been unable to use the keyboard while laying flat on the floor :B
Oh, I added some extra blades of grass :aww: No blending as always.

Dedications

:rose: Codinas - I dedicate this drawing to these lovely and talented brothers, appreciators of women's beauty, as my thanks for their constant and sweet support :aww:
:blackrose: both skilled Rockinfroggi and ArielRGH - these guys deserve a dedication under the drawing of an attractive girl because they become a lil' bit grumpy when I post my "pretty boys" portraits :giggle: Oh, and because I like you, too :B

:star: P.S. Starting tomorrow, I'll be gone for a few days [going to Hungary :dance:], so please don't worry about your unanswered comments :aww:

Good job!You truly are an amazing artist!But Olivia's face is slightly more angular,with sharp cheekbones and a defined jawline.It could be the angle though.Your drawing is almost perfectly realistic,but it kinda looks like a younger,childlike version of Olivia.Her eyes look absolutely perfect,light,bright ,strikingly feline and exotic,like a wild cat.Her hair looks soft and touchable,full of sun-kissed highlights.I also love her sultry facial expression,her full,glossy lips,etc.She looks effortlessly gorgeous and her striking features really stand out ,especially her light colored eyes. You were able to capture everything on canvas,which i really admire.I immediatley recognized her,even before i read the description.Keep it up,you're really talented.Natalie

Dziękuję za miłe słowa! Bardzo się cieszę, że moje prace zainspirowały Cię do spróbowania sił w portrecie :) Owszem, Twoje portrety dobrze się prezentują! Ja tak nie rysowałam po 2 latach ćwiczeń :) Pozdrawiam serdecznie i życzę powodzenia!
