Ooh, I've improved since last year.

So... to keep this from getting too boring, I have two questions for all of you...

(1) Drawing this was great stress relief in between homework, commissions, and college essays. If I draw more character portraits... anyone you're particularly hoping to see next?

(2) By the Kanni's standards, Kirrah is a beautiful young woman. (Why else did that womanizing chieftain's son want to marry her?) Yet our society has a different definition of beauty—one that can be seen on magazine covers and movie posters throughout the world.
Kirrah's physical traits include the following:
Strong jaw, large nose, flat face, high cheekbones, curvy/athletic figure, arched eyebrows, eyes that are horizontally wider than a typical human's
Is Kirrah beautiful? And why do you think that she is/isn't?

My skill as an artist is not related to this topic, so don't feel hesitant if you don't think she's pretty. :)

And as always—if you have any tips for how I can improve my art, I'd love to hear them!

Beauty is highly subjective. I have a nose I'm ashamed of, because generally girls with small, turned up noses are considered pretty. I'm ghostly pale, and I'm ashamed because a lot of girls considered 'hot' have impressive tans. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. Some people/cultures consider different features more attractive than others. I've had some people say that my skin is beautiful, while others say I'm gross and I need a tan XD

I think she's beautiful. Her nose doesn't look all that big, and she has large eyes (something I think is beautiful), clear skin, and nice hair. She also looks like a really good person from this picture :)

I think she's BEAUTIFUL. I don't know why. There's just something about her...she's got such a nice, gentle look about her and her eyes are really lovely :)

And GREAT drawing!

Hmmm. Beauty itself is highly subjective! There are "Beautiful woman" in our society that kind of fits that profile :O [Athletic figures like Serena Williams etc.]

I'd have to say it is a female thing to be ashamed of having a huge nose... so one could say that is a less desired human characteristic.

...I was talking to my computer science teacher this one time and she's studying beauty through a scientific perspective. It ultimately comes back to proportions and symmetry..

So that is my answer!
She looks beautiful in this drawing for sure though! :la:

I'd like to see more Rose I think.
It would be cool to learn of her more characteristic features...personally. :)

That's a good point to mention! I've never seen Serena Williams' face before. :)

Yeah. :)

That's interesting! I haven't read much on the science of beauty.

Yeah, I haven't done much with her lately. Thanks for the suggestion!

2. D: I'm not really sure.

DARK. POR FAVOR.

And she is beautiful, mostly because I know a friend who has the same physical traits, and she's one of the hotter ones. XD

Ah, you do? Cool! :D I've never met anyone who even vaguely resembles Kirrah... which is a little disappointing. XD

1) Eh...Zaen?
2) Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, I think her physical appearance fits her personality: regal, strong, yet loving and kind. Not to mention the ideal "perfect" appearance set up by society is, well a very unkind phrase if you ask my opinion. People shouldn't be forced into believing something is "more beautiful" or "less beautiful" based on what society says. That should be a decision for themselves to make. (That last sentence made no sense, sorry).

1. I agree with :iconpoisoned-poet:. >:} Athryl being hugged!
2. She's beautiful to me. :) She doesn't look like the people on billboards and magazine covers; she looks real. I love her for her personality, not for the packaging. "You know when, sometimes you meet someone so beautiful, and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later, they’re as dull as a brick? Then there’s other people, and you meet them and you think, ‘Not bad; they’re okay.’ And then you get to know them, and their face sort of becomes them, like their personality is written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful." I think that the strong jaw, large nose, non-stick figure, non-plucked looking eyebrows, and "too-big" eyes become her! They suit her and make her a beautiful individual. :) No matter how many fingers she has.


Amazing work and incredible improvement, Luna. :)
Someday I will be as good as you are. ;_;

1.) I want to see a portrait of Athryl in Five's embrace. ._.
2.) She looks quite beautiful in my honest opinion. However, I care less about what is on the outside.

Stunning! And great improvement too! Really good to see that you want to move away from the whole 'anime' style and create your own style - especially with the emphasis on different face shapes etc. Keep it up!

1) Dark? XD
2) YES.
