Look At Me by Louisalings Look At Me by Louisalings
You may think you see
who I really am
But you'll never know me


-

Kiki Bian, beautiful Chinese model.

I’m not really allowed to draw yet for my doctor – she’s probably going to kill me if I told her, but I’m quite happy with it :) - and if it looks a bit… weird… it’s because I was shaking from the pain, so^^;

This is a photo by the very talented Akif Hakan Celebi ([link]), who’s given me permission to draw this.
– I love his works; they are so fantastic and inspiring :heart: You should go check them out.

Original photo and all rights to it © Hakan.

Medium; pencil.
Time; uncounted for.

SOLD :D

I can't tell you enough how this portrait looks exactly like one of my best friends. It shocked me at first when I saw it. Such lovely artwork!

The angling and shape of the face appears very delicate and soft. Love the eyes and how they catch the show of reflection. They seem to convey well with the title's emotional signature. Beautiful lips, they are stern and executed nicely. Wonderful job.

OMG! awsome job! I love your shading, it's perfect, your works look so realistic and lips... I love how you draw them, the shine on them makes lips look so real that I want to touch them hehe
I admire you :glomp:

I think I'm getting better :) I had a bit of a relapse yesterday but my doctor says that's normal when you start using a pencil again :) I'll try and force myself to start a new drawing one of these days :hug:

Oooh... Really beautiful! I am sure your teacher will be amazed! :clap: :)
And now... STOP!!! No more drawing, take rest if you don't want to have after-effects in few years :(

He he, I am visiting Hakan's gallery, there is really beautiful shots (I still haven't found your model...). That's funny, because yesterday I discovered this artist for the first time, and today you speak about her... Teehee, amusing coincidence :D
