It's finally done. A couple people have asked me to draw Eva Longoria from "Desperate Housewives" so here she is.
I worked on this for so long that I started making tonal mistakes. Thanks to
for pointing out some things to me. It really helped in the end I think. When I was showing the WIP's I wondered why the drawing was looking so dull and monotone. Henderson pointed out to me that I was making the hair about the same tone as the skin, which isn't true on Eva at all. Her hair is alot darker. I darkened the hair significantly since the last update and I have lightened some places on her face where the direct light source is hitting it. The top was left paper color partly to save me the extra work of doing a detailed fabric (which I am no good at anyways) and partly to help balance out the tones on the drawing. I think it works pretty well. Thanks to all who have commented on the WIP. Much appreciated.
