Subject: Narcissa Black, while she's young.
Medium: Ebony pencil
Notes: I imagine this could have been snapped in an off moment. Bella's nearby commanding attention and everyone has simply forgotten to notice Cissa. In response, she's let her guard down a bit because she knows that there's no ignoring her sister. In my mind, she's thinking about Andromeda, but she wouldn't tell you that if you asked. She'd feign ignorance and claim to have been deep in thought, planning for her upcoming wedding.

Soooo, this is what I did today. All day. 7 hours to be exact. It started off from a photo of Cintia Dicker, but I changed it a ton and completely made up the hair. The lips are far too pouty, but I'm not touching it. I can live with it. Actually, that's not true. I'll probably kill the two strands of hair on the left. They're bugging me.

Really? Maybe I just don't like them because they'd took so long. Haha, oh well. Thanks for the feedback.

Oh this is fantastic. I'm so jealous of your shading and her face is so striking. The lips are my favorite though!

Thanks. :)) I obsess over getting shading right. It's not something you notice on a live person, but in a drawing it's the most important part. Artists that make me notice their shading are always my favorite so that's a huge compliment.

I like your visual interpretation of Narcissa. Somehow, this doesn't say Cintia Dicker to me at all. I'm squinting as much as I can, but, nope, still no obvious resemblence.

Great job overall. I actually kind of love it quite a lot the more I look at it.


P.S.: Also kind of feel the need to write/read pouty!Narcissa fic. Hmm.

Well, like I said it changed quite a bit, I actually elongated the face a tad, didn't draw any freckles, toned down the puffiness under her eyes that ONLY cintia can pull off, annndd drew the lips completely wrong, but it worked out so whatever. Ha.

Thanks. :) I'm pretty proud of it.

Please do write a pouty!Narcissa fic! I would love to read it. The Black sisters are my favorites. I can't get enough of them.
