This is from a month or so ago. When I draw with reference or from life, my work turns out to be so much more interesting. If I don't have reference, I revert to drawing my normal, perfect looking, semi/anime influenced woman that has no personality. This is something I'm trying to correct through rigorous life drawing. It will probably also help me develop a "style", which I lack.
While I was drawing this, I noticed the woman's face. I spent about 30 minutes drawing this so I had time to take note of her features. This woman is beautiful. It's no the perfect-caked-in-makeup-Hollywood ideal of beauty, it's real beauty.
