Portrait - Utada Hikaru by Hardedge-Maelstrom Portrait - Utada Hikaru by Hardedge-Maelstrom
Portrait of Utada Hikaru :)
Done with 6B, 2B and an H pencil, oh almost forgot, used the blender thing too :P
Obviously, a reference was used :)

Feels good to have a finished piece done traditionally, haven' really done a lot those lately D:

Whoooooa; -very- nice! Love the texture, and you've done an awesome job capturing realism, I think. Bravo! Man, I'd kill people to be able to draw like that... err, maybe...

Please don't kill meh ;-;

Haha, well thanks for that, um, compliment :P Heh, the sketchbook does have a pretty good texture, took a while to find it though, the store I went to barely had any decent sketchbooks, most were drawing pads and watercolour pads =_=;

i love what she did for the evangelion songs.
they were simply awesome. it's a shame that
she didn't do proper mv's for them though.

Traditional work is a nice break from all digital work that floats around.

Also, she has the voice of an angel.
