Dresden Files Fan Art 2 by ardian-syaf Dresden Files Fan Art 2 by ardian-syaf
Watercolor on Canson Paper
2 hours

OK, I learn an important point here: make sure the anatomy is right first before paint it :P this is traditional medium, I couldn't just erase it.

This is my first watercolored deviation, also my first one since I was at college years ago. A lot of fun when drawing this.

The character is Lieutenant Karrin Murphy from The Dresden Files popular novel written by Jim Butcher. I did the pencils for the comic, and she is my favorite character :)

Thanks for looking this, sorry my bad English :P

I hope I can submit something better next time.

Check my friend's watercolored gallery here [link] who inspired me to play with watercolor again :)

Ironically, the only English mistakes you make are in the sentence where you apologise for your bad English (apart from the tense on one verb, but to be honest, any native English-speaking person might have done that simply because they were lazy typists.) If you're interested, it should be "Thanks for looking at this, sorry about my bad English". If you were speaking formally - i.e., not writing a description of a painting on an internet site - you would also add the conjunction "and" after the comma. Run-on sentences occur all the time in casual English, but they're not appropriate for Standard English.

Now that I've indulged my inner grammar nazi I have to say that, other than the jawline, it's a great picture. You've captured Murphy perfectly. I'm particularly envious of the way you've drawn her gun hand and arm; I'd probably start chewing on the furniture if I had to tackle the perspective for that.

And really, your English is fine for a site like this. We're here for the artwork, after all. :)

Uh. Sorry about the triple posting, the internet was being screwy.

hair should be more blond and she needs to be a bit more buxom, but nice work.
