    ...as she would appear in a graphic novel.

    Thirty minute sketch with pencil and smudge stick on vellum. And are my drawing skills ever rusty, sheeesh. I didn't get the face right, but I'm pleased with the tits.

    You're so creepy. Please, NEVER draw a picture of me.

    Just saying, would have been an awesome drawing if you didn't spend so much time focusing on the breasts of someone you know. That's almost too stalkerish. The fact that you felt it so important that you had to draw her nipples just adds to the overall perverted nature of it.

    That's an awesome drawing. I think even though one can spend too much time on tits, they are important. I'd say face, hands, tits - in that order.
    No but seriously, I love the expression and mood of this drawing. Good job I say! You're welcome to do my portrait any time, with or without breasts.

    EDIT: Is this Emelie from the forums btw? Then I would add that it's a little creepy, but I haven't decided what to think yet since I'm new here.

    Thanks for the compliment, and btw your artwork is quite awesome too!

    And yes, Emelie is from the forum... but I dare say she has seen much worse than this from me... oh if you only knew.

    This is the first sketch I've pumped out in a very long time. A friend wanted me to draw something for him to get as a tattoo so I spent two hours on a dragon, sent him on his way to the tattoo parlor, and then I just kept drawing for awhile. It felt good to be drawing again. The sketch isn't actually of Emelie, leastwise it didn't start out that way... but when it was finished I thought it had a bit of a resemblance so I posted it.

    This makes it SLIGHTLY less creepy. Only slightly. And I see you have edited your first post where you were talking in more detail about the nipples. Wise choice. Wouldn't want to creep people out TOO much would we?

    I think Emelie's threshold for being creep'd out would have been met when she saw me naked.;)

    And you of all people should appreciate nipples.;););)

    There's a huge difference to seeing a naked photo of someone else. That's fine. That's the other persons choice and they put that photo out there. On the other hand the thought of a grown man spending a great deal of time thinking about and drawing the breasts and nipples of a still fairly young girl without her knowing, then posting it online and saying it's her is VERY creepy. That's more of a violation.

    Like really Crou? I don't think it's creepy. Boobs are just a part of the body, and boobs have nipples. I might think boobs are an unfortunate part of the body but still, it's the human body, it looks that way.
    I didn't even react before I saw your posts.


    Sparrow, you are one talented dude. I love the sketch.

    Okay, maybe it's just me... and my roommate (I explained the situation to her to get her opinion) and it made both of us feel uncomfortable. It just seems sort of perverted to me. But I guess I'm the only one.

    I sometimes wished my mammalian heritage wouldn't get to me whilst in the need to do something important.
    Why do I have to be distracted by sharp sounds, bright lights, breasts and rumps? Oh woe me, what great things one could accomplish without those idiotic "feelings".

    Pencils out, scribble through
    eyeing rumps is wrong, mind you
    why oh why am I so sad?
    why did I end up like dad?

    Arts and music, tunes and colours
    all belong in ill lit cellars
    where I cannot gaze at breasts
    C'mon give my mind some rest.

    I think most people sexualize things way too much. It's just boobs. Nothing perverted about that, and in the drawing the girl has a shirt on.
    People always call me a prude, but if a talented artist did draw a portrait of me in this type of style. I would be flattered.

    She hardly has a shirt on. It's basically see-through material if you can see the nipples that clearly. I'm all for drawing the naked figure. I've been to years of life-drawing classes. I just think there comes a line when it's someone you personally know and they don't know about it. That's just my opinion anyway.

    There we go, turns out I'm not the only one bothered by it. Also, you guys didn't read the post that Sparrow first made... before he edited it. I read it when it still had him talking about the details of Emelie's nipples and not knowing how to draw them since he hadn't seen them before.
