Gabrielle with Parasole by amberj8 Gabrielle with Parasole by amberj8
I'm a huge fan of Xena, and when I first started drawing more seriously, most of what I drew was Xena-related. That was a while ago now, and it was really fun to go back and try my hand at a new pic of Gabby. Her face can be tricky to do right, but I'm pleased with the result. This is graphite on A4, took about 15 hours or so to do, and it was the first time I tried using a mechanical pencil. Lots of fun. :)

Thanks. :) Her face isn't the easiest to draw, but I think this one came out pretty good. Glad you like it.

I can imagine she's hard to draw. I'm not an artist; I don't have any talent like that.  How I wish I did. (If I have any talent, it is with words). When I look at closeups of Xena's face, I can imagine the detail it would require. Her face is almost heart shaped - so I would think shading is critical. You managed to capture her in a way that is nearly animated. The interesting thing is that Lucy, out of costume, doesn't necessarily look like Xena. Somehow you managed to nail the character. Wow, just wow!! That takes talent.

Thanks. :) I think the graphite worked better than charcoal would have, and I like how it all worked out.

This is really good. I've been trying to find some really good Xena artwork on DA lately since I recently am watching the series again but not too much luck. But anyway you really have captured Gabrielle well here. =)

Yeah I watched it back in the day when it first aired on tv and I was a little kid then so it was kinda hazy for me these days and I did miss out a lot on the final season but where I live (I don't know about the rest of Australia) they have recently brought out the dvd collection, so I was very happy when that happened, I'm now up to the final season ^.^ Well I'll watch you then, can't wait and I love the rest of your gallery as well.
