Why did I draw this picture?
I wanted to draw a picture that can make you feel. I wanted to draw a picture that focus on emotion rather than small, fussy, tidious details. I wanted to draw a picture that capture my sadness and tears of the past few months. I wanted to draw more LOTR fanart. Umm.. and yeah I wanted to draw Liv Tyler's lips.
Her tears are almost invisible in the reference screencap. I tried my best to make them more visible without looking fake. I also lighten up the area around her eyes to make her eyes and tears stand out (by 'lighten up' I means shading it lighter than what was shown in the reference).
I used the same watercolour paper as my last drawing. I like the grainy effect it gives eventhough it makes my shading looks rough and uneven in parts.
I used H, HB, B mechanical pencils and 7B, 8B, 9B wooden pencils. Nothing in between.
*Thanks for all the comments that helped me improve this piece of work. I really appreciate them and I've corrected a few parts that I missed the first time around. I'm quite happy with this drawing right now so no more change is gonna be made. Critiques are still welcome though.
My next drawing will look happier I promise.
