Draw This Again Challenge: Elf Portrait by DaoyiLiu Draw This Again Challenge: Elf Portrait by DaoyiLiu
Second submission, a portrait as promised.
Really grateful for this challenge just for the fact that it's got me drawing again. Been so busy with college this year.

Original was my first ever serious drawing done with my first ever Wacom (Bamboo). Never had a tablet before, only used pencils till then, so tried to emulate that for familiarities sake. I used to love that portrait x)

Now that I've used the tablet for so long, haven't used the pencil in ages xD

:D still a long ways to go though, but seeing improvement is always a good boost for morale ^^
Thanks for viewing!

Edit: The original pencil drawing was based off of an Ian Mccaig tutorial that i watched in college two years ago. No wonder it turned out better than most of the other stuff i did those first few months aaahahaha x)
Completely forgot about that till recently :iconbraindeadplz:
Wish i had that tutorial now for the colouring part. It was way out of my league back then, but it would have been so cool to see if i could follow along with it now.

Ooh wait, so THAT'S where it's from! I vaguely remember doing a drawing tutorial 2 years ago with a friend in college, had completely forgotten about that till now. No wonder this drawing came out better than all the other shit I did that year hahaha. Wish i remembered that tutorial when i did the colour version. Probably would have turned out much better.
