Angelina Jolie portrait by mach5 Angelina Jolie portrait by mach5
13 hours worth of city parking - $6.50
10 cups of decaf coffee - $17.50
1 tank of gas - $25

Finishing a drawing in the comfort of a coffee shop - Priceless.

I'm so glad this is done, and I managed not to severely fuck it up. I'm still not 100% happy with the hair, the ring, or the lousy excuse for a background, and I wish I'd spent some time maybe adding some texture to the hands and more to the lips, but ya know what....it's done.

I will so be sending Angelina a copy of this one of these days.

Used some nice soft brown drawing paper; same stuff I used for the Captain Jack Sparrow pic a couple years ago. Mostly 2B mechanical pencil, little bit of B, plus white charcoal pencil. Liberal chamois and blending stick usage throughout. That's pretty much about it.

Oh my gosh. That is amazing-- I wish I could draw people like you can! I personally think the hair looks great-- hair's a bitch to draw-- even though you're not happy with it. The eyes are very striking. I think your choice for background (what little of it there is!) was a good one; anything too busy would take away from the face. :+fav:

Hey, you keep up the work, you'll get there sooner than you think. I've seen your gallery, and you've definitely got the talent.

Eh, I'm barely an artist. But I can recognize technical ability, and creativity, and you have both. I only have the former. In a few years, you'll blow me away.

You think so? Thanks! A simple comment like that means a lot coming from an artist like yourself.

Well, I hadn't gotten any better until this one. Still got a LOOOOONG way to go though. What i need is to get this skill downloaded straight into my brain a la the Matrix. Otherwise, I'm going to be 26 by the time I get as good as some of the 17 year olds I see on here.

The colourized version looks more like her, but it's still a beautiful portrait.

Thanks Jess! Did you check out the colorized version? I think it's twice as Jolie-liscious as this one. :)

Yeah, I did. I'm not sure which I like better, though.

heh, I tend to prefer the color ones, but this time around, I'm torn. I kinda like the simplicity of the normal one, but then I love how the colored one turned out to look as if she was lit by candlelight or something. So warm looking.

I'm just bloody happy I made a drawing that was better than my last few. I haven't felt like I'd improved at all this last year until now.

Well, in all fairness, it really did blow donkey dick. But that can only be expected when I'm trying to draw from my lousy brain. If I'd have used the photo reference for more than just the outlines, I might have had a fighting chance of not blowing said donkey. heehee

Wow!! Really nice drawing of a very beautiful woman! I don't know if she does that pose a lot or what but I could swear this is one of the poses she does in "Taking Lives" which I just saw this past weekend.

Also I was wondering..are you really going to send her a copy? I think that would be awesome but it also seems like such a daunting task, just getting her address or wherever you can send it to and going through all the security procedures! Is it something Portrait artists do a lot? Will it help you with your popularity and perhaps get you more business?
Anyways, I wish you luck and let me know what she says about her portrait if you ever send her one.

I dunno, I haven't seen taking lives. But she needs to do this pose in all her movies. heh

I think I might get around to sending her one. Dunno yet though. I hear what you do is just send it to their fanmail address, which goes through their agent. I'm not really a good portrait artist yet, so I'm not sure if this is standard operating procedure. But I'm a huge fan, and it would be really cool to get some feedback from her, if she takes the time to give it.

Thanks again for the comment!
