Abby Maitland by ChaosAcathla Abby Maitland by ChaosAcathla
Abby Maitland played by Hannah Spearitt in ITV's Primeval.

This one really stretched me, but that what i wanted. I went for the whole image inc' background and jeeez it nearly killed me.

Yeah so i got a bit careless with the background but then it's not the focus so hopefully it's not too obvious.

Time: approximately 19 hours.

Cups of Tea: 4 - too busy to drink!

Tools: Derwent Graphic 2H through 9B, Derwent Onyx Medium and Dark +blending tools (no fixative as i may go back to her hair)

I hope you like it, let me know what you think, comments are appreciated. ^^

The first thing that I want to say is that I have been searching for weeks now for something worth the time to sit down and critique. Then, today I came across this beautiful drawing of yours. I don't watch tv so I don't know anything about the character but this is a wonderful drawing. Your fine detail work is superb, to say the least. The clothing on her is pretty much perfect, your folds are awsome, and the way you showed the different textures is phenominal. The detail in the face is also very, very good, almost lifelike. The only thing that throws me off about the body is that the neck seems just slightly to short, like her head should be raised just a bit. Also, in your comment you said that you got fairly careless with the backgroud and I have to admit that looking at the detailess background, after seeing this awsome protrait, I do feel a little cheated. I believe that if you took a little time and put some detail in the background it would take this from a great work of art, to an amazing one.
What do you think?

Thank you, when i look back at this one i always feel it's a bit too harsh somehow, because really she has a very uuuuh soft? face.
I completely agree tho, the short hair suited her faaaar better!

Yay, Abby too! She looks really nice, although I think her eyeliner needs to be darker (lol). Great job! :winner:
