Monnalisa by francoclun Monnalisa by francoclun
Mechanical pencil on Fabriano Acquarello watercolor 'Artistico' hot pressed.
Size 23x30,5
Here it is. This is my first drawing after I joined DA. It took me about 30 hours to finish it.
I honestly donít even know if the person is male or female. No matter, it is a child, and in her eyes you can see all the world is going to know. The smile is as enigmatic as the Leonardoís Gioconda, but more cheerful. It puts me in a good mood.

I like how you made the lighting through the clouds shine & reflect on the people in this painting. The cast-shadows compliment the lighting very well!! recommend my favorite artists Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Frida Kahlo, Roberto Matta Gabino amaya cacho and Pablo Picasso. Thank you in advance!

Wow! I thought this was a desaturated photo and I was actually searching for the name of this boy but in the end what I found was someone who shares the same thoughts as me! 
The smile of this boy really enlightens me and I couldn't resist but to spend time drawing it.. 
This is my 6th attempt on drawing portrait: (If possible please comment on the areas on where I can further improve on)

Franco your work is probably the best I have ever seen. I am just starting out here now.
I began drawing portraits 6 months ago I am self taught. If you had a spare minute could you look at my pictures
and tell me what you think please. Naoimi

Thanks a lot. Naoimi. You are on the right way. What can I say?. If I were you I would pay attentions on the proportions. Is the first thing I noticed in you portraits, Un fortunately every little mistake in the face proportions is a strong distractions in the eyes of the person who look at your drawing ;-)  Have a nice day
