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.
