Still gotta do a lot of smoothing out on the face^^;.The contrast is so close in color, it's hard to get it straight^^;.Safety saving...
emmamommalag (May 20, 2004)
Great start.. looks like this is going to be really good.
Gigandas (edited May 20, 2004)
If I ever get the skin tones smoothed out, of now, it's "waaaay" to messy.

-God.....I hate this thing^^;.I tried to do the next revision twice now, and both times, the stinkin' internet closed down in the middle of my revision....gonna work on this one later (_ _ #.....
Kasha (May 20, 2004)
that is one sexy ass lady! hehe I bet DBA breaks hearts all day.

Gig. I'm a very messy artist myself. I have no structure....but that's what makes us artist!
Gigandas (May 20, 2004)
I'm just having a bad drawing day^^; least I hope...
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited May 20, 2004)
Hey! You are soooo close!!! :) This is closer to looking like the real thing than I thought even you could do. The only things I see structure-wise that might be a tad off are my left eye is a little (miniscule) bit high (edit: they were exactly right all the way through view 3, I think when smoothing things out you moved it up a bit - actually I think it has something to do with where you took the shadows out instead of the placement) and my nose might be a hair wide, but you could leave it exactly like that and it still looks like me. :) You're great! I'm so glad you posted me with hair... lol I wish I could have drawing days that bad. :)
Aubrey (May 20, 2004)
You are one drop dead gorgeous lady Cindy :-D Just as purdy as you are sweet. As far as the picture goes I agree about the left eye being a little off, but other than that looks just like the gal. How you can draw with that Shi Painter is way beyond me Gig, you're a great arteest :-D
Gigandas (May 20, 2004)
Well, some structures are off, I know.I still have to get to them^^.Thanks for pointing them out though XD.
longway (edited May 20, 2004)
omg, this is great....and i went and looked,, the pic here is pretty close. other than my age, my eyes are brown and the end of my nose is a little wider. i have to hunt for a pic and i'll put it up so you can see it. the shape of your face and eyes are the same, and small mouth. other people may swear that's not true, oops lol, but i've had blond hair most of my life, lol, yours is just thicker. let me see if i can get a pic to email to you....
DeadlyBlondeArcher (May 20, 2004)
longway: you can go to to see the color photo he's using, click on the 'definintely' thumbnail. I would love to have a twin... just a sister would be nice... lol (and you don't really have anything off Gigandas, it was all perfect in v.3, i think it's just the shadows)... I don't know anybody that can do this sort of thing better than you!
Gigandas (May 20, 2004)
I'll work on this more it's not quite as embarrassing as it is with its messiness.It's starting to get really irritating^^;.I'll try to fix the eye and nose thing tomorrow as well.And thanks DBA, I'm happy as long as you're happy with this one....:)
LovelyLori (May 20, 2004)
lookin good!
davincipoppalag (May 21, 2004)
Giggy you are the bomb.. This is even captured that "dangerous lady "look DBA has! Longway looks like Cindy? Maybe you two should go huntin together..
Kloxboy (May 21, 2004)
Well DBA, I asked you to draw Bambi Woods but hey, you kinda look like her so this work for me. You're a pretty gal, that's for sure. Nice protrait Gigandas.

I think the eye is fixed strands of hair and the hand too...
Zack (May 21, 2004)
Hello pretty lady. She has cotton candy hair. Now I'm hungry...
DeadlyBlondeArcher (May 21, 2004)
Thank ya'll... hi Zack, but eww... hair in your mouth? lol The eyes are definitely better,'ve got it. I can't believe how real this is. It's totally weird to log on here and see a drawing of myself.
Gigandas (May 21, 2004)

The hand is still in the works....gotta get it sharp....
laurael (May 21, 2004)
This is looking pretty damn awesome Yeah, dba is beautiful inside and out...she's a wonderful person.
Pandora (May 22, 2004)
Drop dead georgeous you are DBA. Gigandas you make it look so easy but your talent is endless. How nice to see a pretty lady and she has such a fantastic attitude with manners. hehe it's true. I would love to watch this animated to learn how you do it Gigandas.
Look (May 22, 2004)
The facial features and the eyes, they are sooo realistic!!!!

Ran out of time....
Zack (May 22, 2004)
It's cool to see this progress in specific steps. This is another great example of technical skill. I can't wait until you start coming up with your own creations, Gig. DBA: don't worry, your hair is safe. I only eat real cotton candy. :P
Gigandas (May 24, 2004)
drawn in 1 hour 30 min
I think the addition of the strands of hair over the forehead made it look somewhat better.I also worked on the hand a bitI'll have to work on other major areas to see what just doesn't fit...
DeadlyBlondeArcher (May 24, 2004)
WOW! I am amazed at how perfect this is.... I knew you were great at this, but since I had never seen the ppl you were drawing, I didn't know if they were accurate depictions. I do, however, know my own face, and YIKES this is so realistic it's scary!!! My husband loves it. :) Dang, you are good at this.
Soshell (May 24, 2004)
awww you drew cindy! that's freakin awesome, i love the way you captured every stray hair
Gigandas (May 24, 2004)
Thanks DBA^^;.You told me that there aren't any mistakes several times today, but you gotta find something XD.Okay, okay^^;......maybe something will pop up by the next revision :).But be sure to tell me cause I'm going all out.I wish i had more time tonight so I could work on it some more, but I still got some hw left....well, probably tomorrow then ;).

Good things come to those who wait! We are never disappointed in your work..
DeadlyBlondeArcher (May 27, 2004)
Don't feel bad Gigandas, it takes me a really long time to fix my hair, too. lol
davincipoppalag (May 27, 2004)
Your hair is broken???
marcello (May 27, 2004)
that was pretty bad, davinci.
davincipoppalag (May 27, 2004)
Sorry.... ah jes caint hep it..
Xodiak (May 30, 2004)
Hehehe, fantastic drawing Mr. Giant... Masterful and beautiful artwork! And the model is very beautiful too! Keep drawing! I mostly like the hair, although not all parts are finished. It must be very difficult to sort out and draw every individual hair strand. Such patience! >:D
Doodlibop (Jun 4, 2004)
Wow...DBA is a VERY sexy lady O.o
How many guys are on yer heals, eh? *giggles*

me007 (Nov 26, 2004)
Holy crap dude that is awsome! lol Hi cindy! it looks just like the photo awsome job! I cant wait to see this one finished
Maiko (Nov 26, 2004)
cindy san is so pretty O_O and Niisama, you're so good at drawing ><
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Nov 26, 2004)
I believed you would finish it... :) I like watching, though, thanks for posting it unhidden so I can watch you fix my hair. (The hand looks great, too.)
davincipoppalag (Nov 26, 2004)
No weapons in her hands either..!
Aubrey (Nov 26, 2004)
Yup, still purdy, just as I suspected.
PtolemyKitty (Nov 26, 2004)
Wow GIgandas, your really good...especially at hair...I love that its black and white like that

And Cindy you are very pretty...
Turtlebuster (Nov 26, 2004)
nice. i think the left eye is right on. i don't think it looks off, and it appears exactly as the photo shows it... it's just a matter of lighting and angle.. DBA has her head crooked so her left eye, which is higher, exposes more of it's lashes to the camera.
mangaflip (Nov 26, 2004)
you are pretty cindy ! how old are you? ;D lol it's amazing! i am the last young drawer... no?
I m ' excuse for not providing to draw often but I really have time, I m ' also excuse for not being able to post you messages :\ all that you made it is magnificent, I come every day on this site to see your works I feast! I work many for the secondary school in france for my diplome ,

I was wonderin' where this drawing disappeared to. *Whistles* She's beautiful. :-) You're doin' an amazing job on it. Hooray that it's visible again!!!
sincity (Nov 26, 2004)
Gig Rocks , and DBA is Shexay, that's all I'm gonna say, and I'm sticking to it. I'm also sticking to my pants at the moment, EEEEWWWW!
Axil62 (Nov 26, 2004)
God I hate Gig, but man can that guy draw or what? Might wanna change yer pant's there sincity.
sincity (Nov 26, 2004)
Yeah, just did, but I have to stop lookin' at this pic. OO,AAH, daMN IT, TOO LATE. ( RUNS TO CHANGE)
Kenshin (Nov 27, 2004)
This is so amazing.. I saw the thumbnail, and thought: DBA! >:D
HunterKiller_ (Nov 30, 2004)
*falls off chair, spazisms on the floor, and dies* thats such the coolest hair btw.
pulmonq2 (Dec 2, 2004)
flawless (cept those minor struct details). I swear I'm looking at an actual photograph, though.
Gigandas (Dec 2, 2004)
Thanks guys.If anything seems off, feel free to point them out so I can try to fix them if I see that they are really off.I think I'll work on this more after dinner :).
Gigandas (Dec 2, 2004)

Would have had even more done if I hadn't lost this revision twice because of the internet deciding to shut down on me twice in the middle of drawing this...
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Dec 2, 2004)
I hate it when that happens. You're fixing my hair! :)
davincipoppalag (Dec 2, 2004)
Your hair's broken?
Gigandas (Dec 3, 2004)
*scrolls thru the comments* Didn't you already ask that before davinci :P?
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Dec 3, 2004)
No, it's not broken, but it still needs fixing. :(
sincity (edited Dec 3, 2004)
Like this needed more fixin' right. I like version 1, MWAAHAHA! Jkng :}

DeadlyBlondeArcher (Dec 8, 2004)
Did you just call me a bitch?
spiritdweller (Dec 8, 2004)
I was referring to the comment you made on my pic of those two ladies, silly
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Dec 8, 2004)
ohhhhkay, startled me for a minute there, I didn't think it was that time of the month. HAH ;)
spiritdweller (Dec 8, 2004)

DeadlyBlondeArcher (Dec 8, 2004)
okay, good... we'll get synchronized and bitch each other out and pull each others hair and stuff, it's a date. LOL
spiritdweller (Dec 8, 2004)

brainspiller83 (Dec 14, 2004)
ok, this makes me sick! its sickening that people can draw so realistically....i am soooo soo so so so jealous! its not fair. it looks just like a photo, thats how good it is.
Gigandas (Dec 17, 2004)
drawn in 1 hour 32 min's starting to look a bit crappy.....I guess that's what happens when you try to work on a piece while you feel uninspired.I'll fix those troublesome points on my next edit.

Anna (Dec 18, 2004)
Beautiful. :-) Definitely one of my favorites.
sincity (Dec 18, 2004)
This wasn't done? Wow! I thought it was. Silly me. Well All I can say is, I want to be able to upload photos into 2draw. How did you do it?
LOL HA!HA! Just kidding of course. Fantastic job There is nothing I can say except you did a great job! :}
emmamommalag (Dec 18, 2004)
I think you may have set a record for the longest time to do a picture. But good things take time and this is definitely a good one. Great job, Gigandas.
Cacau (Dec 19, 2004)
So real... Lol, you´ve made it with teh mouse... Blonde Archer is really pretty, then ^^ One of my favorites...
me007 (Dec 19, 2004)
*stairs at mouse in disbelief* This came out so well Gig! Cindy really is beautiful and you did a *place awsome adjective here* job of recapturing her.
Rosemary (Dec 19, 2004)
beautiful portrait :)
davincipoppalag (Dec 19, 2004)
I find myself amazed that work like this isn't in the showcase.
nozomii (Dec 19, 2004)
Yea, this is definitely showcase material. I get amazed everytime i look at it. Gigandas, you are amazing. It really looks like a photograph.
Kenshin (Dec 19, 2004)
You finally finished! this is wonderful. You are truely amazing. The hair is so awesome and well drawn. Great Job! Oh yeah, and DBA, you are beautiful ^_^
Aubrey (Dec 19, 2004)
Amazin work there Gig. Turned out beauteeful.
HunterKiller_ (Dec 20, 2004)
have i commented on this before??? i dont know, i dont care!! i have to comment again!! This is TOOOO GOOOOOD!! the hair!! OMFG!! The patience you must have to do all those strands of hair!!! *hail gigandas* and Miss Cindy IS very beautiful btw.
SlimShady97 (Dec 30, 2004)
This is just to perfect! *stalks off to a corner to sulk* I could never have the amount of patience you have to draw all those delicate lines of hair. The facial expression is photogenic as well. This has been one of the best pics I've seen the whole time I've been here!
Ambrosaine (Jan 14, 2005)
Wow,this is wonderful!It looks like a photograph.
nozomii (Jan 14, 2005)
Why isnt this in showcase?? I don't get it. REally don't get it.
Xodiak (Jan 14, 2005)
A really perfect drawing. Super realistic and finally finished, hehe! I always feel happy when people draw sexy girls. >:) Spectacular! >:D
bakuraiscool (Jan 14, 2005)
This looks very much like the photo of DBA that I saw! Wonderful! And anyways...WHY ISN'T THIS ON SHOWCASE?
Miss_DJ (Apr 8, 2005)
Your talent is amazing! And DBA, you are gorgeous as well as so very talented yourself..!!
xiau (Aug 31, 2005)
Why is this not in showcase? This is beautiful! It looks just like the reference! The hair is amazing...
JK-Arts (Dec 20, 2005)
I know, This is one of the very first pictures i've seen before i ever joined 2draw, last year its excellent just never commented it.
mx (Feb 1, 2006)
i don`t know how people get it right to be so realistic.....i guess im destined to be unrealistic with my art :(...
other people seem to get it right so easily :-S
Gigandas (Feb 6, 2006)
mx-It's basically one big puzzle really. The closer you can get all the right shapes and colors in their accurate positioning on the canvas, the closer you will be to achieving it.
Artiste (Feb 6, 2006)
wow! mx, I agree... I can't seem to achieve photo realism very well myself. My brain and hand doesnt work that way either.
davincipoppalag (Feb 6, 2006)
Giggy and Aubrey are the two best here at doing this. I don't know how either of you see those minute differences let alone reproduce them.
mx (Feb 6, 2006)
does a tablet help this, or should a mouse be ok to get this realism Artiste and Gigandas?
davincipoppalag (Feb 6, 2006)
mx..look at Aubrey's car..that was moused.. I don't think it makes a difference what you use if you have the patience for meticulous detail.
mx (Feb 7, 2006)
well....its always been a problem for me....not just here...its kinda just impossible for me to imitate(partially cause i don`t use reference at all lol)
nekodesu (Feb 7, 2006)
Just because you can't 'copy' a ref doesn't degrade you as an artist. People just have strength and weaknesses.
davincipoppalag (Feb 7, 2006)
Quite the contrary. I wish I could draw without some kind of reference.
Gigandas (Feb 12, 2006)
I did this one with a mouse, but it really shouldn't matter which one you use. I think the only real difference is the amount of time and patience you're willing to put into it working with a mouse. I mean, it's not exactly the easiest thing to maneuver to draw tiny details or clean lines with, but given the time, it should be possible.
NOVEMBER93 (Apr 8, 2006)
wow.....this looks sooo realistic
Miss_DJ (Dec 28, 2006)
om goodness!! just perfectly deadly!
enjoydotcom (Jan 6, 2007)
So this is what my camera does when I take a picture. There is actually a guy in there drawing it. Who knew?
fleeting_memory (Jan 10, 2007)
I'm still shocked that this isnt showcased.
Wraith (Aug 14, 2007)
What a beautiful lady! Damn Gigandas, It's just like the ref, but in black n white. Duration 1 day 5 hours! My god! I would never have the patience for that! Yeah I'd say this is Showcase, but then who am I?
Roxana1890 (Jun 21, 2008)
wow.that hair.those eyes.everything is perfect.looks like a real photo.your talent is unlimited.definately one of the best drawings on this website.
shell (Apr 2, 2010)
Oh my God this is stunning. She's stunningly beautiful. You're stunningly skilled. Amazing work.
