I made these Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester pictures for my sister-in-law per request. I love the way they turned out. Cheesy It's mixed-media (watercolor, crayons, sharpie, scrapbooking paper) 5X7 and totally awesome (imho). Hope you enjoy them!

Very nice!  I really like Edward's hair... I have a huge problem drawing guys, and he's inspiring me to try in this style...  Cheesy

For me, the trick with drawing hair is to simplify it as much as possible. I like drawing curly hair because you can sort of make waves wherever and it looks about right. I was actually doodling Sherlock when my sister-in-law requested Mr. Rochester. I'm glad you liked the hair, because it was fun for me to figure out and draw. Smiley
