Dressing Gown Padme - Reflections of Padme No. 1 by khinson Dressing Gown Padme - Reflections of Padme No. 1 by khinson
This is the first in a series of 5 x 7 drawings of Padme. For years I've planned to draw her in every costume from the movies, but have finally found a way to do this. Taking the advice of *Rick-Kills-Pencils, I'm experimenting with drawing on a smaller scale. 5 x 7 still allows details like a 9 x 12 drawing, but with much less time required. With my life as it is now, I'll take all the help I can get to finish detailed drawings in a short time. Also, I would like to dedicate this first drawing in the series to *AngelinaBenedetti as this is one of her favorite outfits from the movies.

Padme and Star Wars are the property of George Lucas and not me. The reference picture was found on the internet at [link]

Time and materials:
15 hours
9 x 12 smooth series 400 Bristol board (cut in half to 5 x 7)
Kimberly pencils 2H to 6B
2B, HB and 4B mechanical pencils
.3mm mechanical Pentel pencil
kneaded eraser
blending stumps
Kleenex

You and Angelina are without a doubt the best at drawing anything even remotely Padme related! The texture on this piece is pitch-perfect.

You caught what is my favorite moment in the prequel trilogy -- when Padme knows what she's denied to herself, that she's in love with a man who is doomed.

Thanks Rick! I think you have an excellent idea to do portraits in a 5 x 7 or 6 x 9 size! It doesn't take nearly as much time, but you can still get detail in it!

lol oh yeah, trust me! I felt like Goldilocks and the 3 bears trying various sizes. It really depends on the details in the photo, and the size of the EYES, which is where I put most details, but I find that a face (not paper size) is best (for me) when the distance from the natural hairline to the bottom of their chin is no more than 5 to 6 inches, again, depending on the amount of details? If the person has larger eyes, or I think it will be easy to duplicate the details in the eyes, I can get away with closer to 5". If they have small eyes, I need to go more to 6". Try it and see :D:D Of course if you do a close up and crop off the forehead, go for 3 to 4 inches from middle of eyes to chin :D

Thank you so much for the advice. I'll definitely give it a try! My drawing time is so limited these days, I'm doing all I can to try to save time on drawings and still do as good of quality as I'm able to do. Have a great weekend!
