Teapot (Mar 29, 2010)
was 55 when, astride her horse, she watched the British Navy defeat the Spanish Armada. Cate Blanchett was in her 30's when she did the movie. This is really frustrating because every couple of minutes the drawing tools just stop working for about 10 seconds. I don't know if it's my computer or what but it sure makes drawing a pain in the butt. The real QE1 was swarthy with reddish hair and brown eyes, a hooked nose and thin lips.
Here's a link to the ref photo.

"Wow"!!!! I agree....this pic is totally amazing!! She looks just like Cate Blanchett.....I never saw that movie though....Awesome draw!!!!!! :)
Pandora (Apr 9, 2010)
Can't stop starring, beautiful detail, skin, facial features, armor. Wow!
enjoydotcom (Apr 9, 2010)
Simply wow.

chibipaint does that to me to teapot, great looking pic.
jekyll (Apr 9, 2010)
I just watched this movie last weekend and considered doing this picture. I was surprised to see it on the wall this morning, You're doing a great job with it, Teapot
Teapot (Apr 9, 2010)
Thanks everyone. I was thinking of asking if there was anyone who felt like working on it together as a collaboration. Be forewarned, it's all on one layer.
Flubbles (Apr 9, 2010)
It's looking nice, I always work on one layer. I know it's not ideal all the time, but I like to keep it simple.
Suntan (Apr 9, 2010)
This is so gorgeous, Teapot.
Roytje (Apr 9, 2010)
One layer is perfect, just like the drawing.
TumblingUpwards (Apr 9, 2010)
This is wonderful, what a gorgeous drawing, the metals looks fantastic.
Flubbles (Apr 9, 2010)
The only thing I noticed is that the armour on the arm looks like it should be longer.
Teapot (Apr 9, 2010)
Good eye, Flubbles. Yep, the proportions are out of whack. I've fixed it elsewhere but it's too much trouble to do here because I'm having such a problem with the Chibi applet. I'll delete this because I don't want to finish it. But I put so much time into it, I thought I'd post it anyway. It was fun trying to get the metal to look right without getting too 'tight' with the details.
Flubbles (Apr 9, 2010)
I wouldn't delete it, I'd just come back to it another time whn your chibi's working better.
enirroc (Apr 9, 2010)
Aww, yeah, don't delete it, you've done such a nice job already. You can always come back to it another time when chibi feels like cooperating.
thesolarwinds (Apr 9, 2010)
This is amazing. I love the textures in the skin and the metal. Very convincing.
firecracker (Apr 9, 2010)
I really hope you don't delete this......even if you don't finish still looks awesome just the way it is. I enjoy looking at this draw. You can always work on it more later.......:)
vlad.the.hamster (Apr 9, 2010)
This is gorgeous already, please don't delete this.
Suntan (Apr 10, 2010)
jeeezus, it you're not happy with it, just let it fall behind others that you do and forget about it for a while. It's too wonderful to be rid of.
DorsY69 (Apr 10, 2010)
Brilliant drawing. I am looking foerward to the finishing result!

Okay. Suntan made me feel guilty (even though she IS the queen of the delete button) so I am trying to fix it. I sure hope Chibi saves layers now...
Arique (Apr 10, 2010)
Oh wonderful. You do have something that would truly be spectacular once you're done. I'd hate to see a piece you'd worked on for what is it, 23 hours to be thrown away!
enjoydotcom (Apr 11, 2010)
Do not delete it, that is an order. :D

I'm trying to imagine what it would be like to have a mother who got to dress up in costumes like this...or be Galadriel for god's sake. It's either a fairytale life or Mommy Dearest, I guess.
Flubbles (Apr 21, 2010)
The arm looks alot better. Completely off note, but look how cute this pic is

I love the armour on this.
Miss_DJ (Apr 22, 2010)
Incredibly wonderful textures, colors, facial expression..excellent!
madscientist (Apr 22, 2010)
Fabulous! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:))
Roytje (Apr 22, 2010)
Impressive, yes :)
Teapot (Apr 22, 2010)
Thanks, all, for your kind words and for encouraging me to finish.
Suntan (Apr 22, 2010)
Bravo, this is magnificent.
firecracker (Apr 24, 2010)
Beautiful finish.....:)
Suntan (Apr 24, 2010)
I like seeing them together. :)

Stunning work!
dydyro (May 23, 2010)
fantastic work...her skin tone, eyes, hair.. everything looks great!
Suntan (May 24, 2010)
You know, every once in a while I see you mention your eyesight..and so the detail in this is doubly extraordinary. Like the way the sun hits her eyelashes...and the same thing goes for the girl in her underwear with the little feather hat. Those feathers are so real looking and I like the brush work on the background, too. I was just looking at that one, too, but I couldn't comment again, because I was the last one to do so. That's so annoying when you want to say something again on a piece of work. I understand the reason behind it though. :)
Teapot (May 25, 2010)
Thanks, Suntan. Yeah, it's getting ridiculous how many times I have to zoom in before I can see. I can't complain, though. I had perfect vision for more than 40 years. A lot of my friends have been wearing glasses all their lives. I splurged on a bigger monitor finally, so that helps a bit.
itchymonkey (May 25, 2010)
good to see you persist with this, well worth the effort.
Suntan (Aug 10, 2010)
I keep coming back for more.
Moosh (Aug 10, 2010)
excellent work! very impressive.
mursku (Sep 7, 2010)
