Coruscant Queen Amidala 2 by khinson Coruscant Queen Amidala 2 by khinson
I really was tempted to name this one Taco Head Padme, but thought I better not. I started this drawing in April, but stopped working on it to do another project for someone else. Hopefully I’ll be able to post that drawing later on in the year. This is the first time since 2004 that I’ve drawn Queen Amidala in the ceremonial face paint. I forgot how aggravating it was to shade her face like that! Also, the strange angle of her face added to the difficulty for me. Nonetheless I did enjoy working on this drawing.

This is on 9 x 12 Bristol board using 2H to 6B pencils, Kleenex, blending stumps and kneaded erasers. It took about 20 hours of actual drawing time.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-01-06
Coruscant Queen Amidala 2 by *khinson is a portrait captured by the skill and depth of the artist who creates wonderful art that is only just lifelike and only just drawing. It is an amazing feat to create artwork which challenges reality but still maintains a seemingly effortless style. This is lovely. ( Featured by aunjuli )

Great, but the only thing that irritates me is that dark spot on her cheek, i know it is with the face paint, but it isn't a single flat color, it looks like a mole.
But great anyways

AAACK!! :stupidme: :forgiveme:

I cannot believe I missed this piece in your gallery!! :cries: It SO deserves the DD: stunning realism, flawless likeness and gorgeous light; despite your little "squawk" about the difficulty of shading the Kabuki makeup, it looks perfect to me (and to most everyone that's already commented on it, it seems)--her eyes are SO pretty...conveying all the concern and thoughtfulness about her people that Natalie so beautifully portrayed...just gorgeous! Belated congrats on the DD, Karen--it is SO well-deserved! :clap::clap::+fav:
