    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi there ! I've been browsing this forum for few days and finally decided to join and share my art. I'm new in the "Star Wars Fanart universe" as I finished my first drawing devoted to the saga only few days ago. I've always loved the Old Trilogy and discovered the 2 first prequel movies just before the release of Episode III, that I've already seen 3 times in theater ( but I'm sure here, it's not considered as a crazy thing)

    I now mainly draw with graphite on bristol paper so the next artworks will probably all be made with that medium.
    My first artwork is a portrait of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker. (real size: 20x24cm)
    Hope you'll like it.

    Excellent portrait, aurelia-acc! :D The likeness is spot-on, and the facial features look so realistic. I look forward to your future work. :)

    Fantastic drawing. You can tell a lot of work went into this with the amount of detail in the hair and the fabric. Really great stuff, Aurelia.

    Thanks everyone for the welcome and the kind comments [:D], I'm really glad you like the portrait.

    Realistic portraits are what I prefer that's why I try to make some myself, I still have a lot to learn but with such beautiful pics as models, it's a pleasure to train ;P The only invenient is that it tooks a LOT of time to finish a drawing. This one of Anakin took me 38 hours.

    I know the scan is pretty big, my webmaster and I think it's better to have detailed version of the drawings on my site but if it's too big for you to display it correctly, feel free to download it and resize it on your pc, i don't mind at all ;)

    I've planned to make at least 4 SW drawings during the summer, so you won't have to wait too long for the next artworks. I'll try to start a portrait of Padmé this week-end and hopefully I'll be able to finish it last week

    Beautiful work, I almost start to envy anyone who can draw that way. I have such a time with realisym it's unreal. ;) That's a very good piece, nice detail, very nice. You have far more patients then I to work so long, good job.:)

    The blending/smudging is superb and the intricate detail of the entire piece (the lips, the hair, eyebrows, outfit - take your pick) is amazing. His eyes are hauntingly exquisite. 38 hrs? I can believe that - wish I had your patience. (I find such detailed hair like that a nightmare to draw because I always lose my place when drawing the strands both correctly and proportionately.)

    Beautiful work :)

    Awesome portrait, Aurelia!! I almost cried when it popped up on the screen--it's soooo beautiful, in the details (right down to the small scar on his left cheek, and the creases of the brows), in the exquisite shading and especially in the fabulous rendering of the hair and robes! I agree that it looks like a black-and-white photo of Hayden, it's so realistic! **bows humbly in deference to the consumately skilled artist** I can see I will be "studying" in your thread a lot!! Welcome to Fan Art, and thank you so much for sharing your fabulous work with us here!

    PS--Cannot wait for the next piece!!

    My jaw dropped a bit when I first saw this. Like this -> :eek: Incredible work on the hair and the overall depth, especially around the eyes. A truly beautiful portrait. I can't wait to see what you do with Padmé!

    Thank you so much for your messages !

    38 hours is a long time but honestly I so enjoyed making that drawing, that I could have spent more hours on it without complaining lol I'm a very patient person when it comes to drawing, and working from a high-res pic like the one I have found of Hayden was just great, there was so many details to draw

    here is what I've planned to do: Padmé, Yoda, ObiWan (Ewan McGregor), Anakin as we see him in Episode II. ;) After that I'll have to make non-related SW projects but some friends have already requested a R2D2 & C3PO


    Btw, call me just Aurelia, forget the "ACC",I added it cause I didn't know if there was already a member called like me ;)

Everything there looks...fabulous! **runs out of superlatives...helplessly throws hands into the air** What a wonderful way to spend time, looking at your beautiful artwork! And how lucky we are that you're sharing it with us here! :D Thank you!
