Les Miserables - Eponine by outsidelogic Les Miserables - Eponine by outsidelogic
The second in my Les Miserables series: Eponine, played by the lovely and talented Samantha Barks. She pretty much stole the show as far as I'm concerned. I mean how many of you wanted to say to Marius, "Cosette? Really? Dude, have you taken a good look at Eponine lately?" Better singer, too. And it was her first movie! Did I mention that she's lovely? Ok, I'll stop.

Done with a crow quill pen and some markers; 9 x 12.

Be sure to check out my other Les Mis portraits, and my detail view of this drawing. Still to come: Fantine. And then I move on.

Thanks.  I'm not sure it's the best style for everything, but I think it works for a Les Mis subject...it's got sort of an old world feel.  Good line practice as well.

Ah right... I'm French and I am not very familiar with "Les MisÚrables". :shrug:

Looks like a very simple representation of Epine, yet quite interesting with the lightning play you've made.

Yep, it's pen.  I've been inspired by engravings in old books, so I'm sort of working in that style.  Thanks for the compliment.

Thank you.  Yeah, I didn't purposely choose the style to match the Les Mis logo, but I was working on this style in general, and then a friend requested a Russell Crowe drawing, so it all fell into place.

This reminds me of one of those illustrations they used to have on the side of Barnes and Noble bags (maybe they still do, I haven't been there in awhile).  It has a very classy, old-school look to it due to the shading technique used, which is very cool.  I'm not detecting any anatomical issues but then again I'm not familiar with the actress, never saw the movie, and am definitely still learning facial anatomy myself so I'm not the best judge when it comes to that stuff right now. :P

The only thing I can think of that would be even remotely off is perhaps the fact that the lines in the air move largely in the opposite direction as the ones going across her face.  For some reason I feel like the shading lines should mostly be traveling in the same direction.  I'm not familiar with the usual "rules" for this type of shading technique though, so maybe that's the way it would have been done by the old masters of it anyway.  However, I just feel a little bit like it creates a a degree of separation between the hair and the face that is only slightly detrimental to the overall unity of the piece.  I don't think I'd change anything about it though.

Thanks for the thoughtful critique.  I know what you're saying about the lines.  I studied a bunch of artists (old and new), and this is the best technique I have...for the moment anyway.  It's pretty hard to do hair with shading lines that go across the natural line of the hair.  But hair in general has been a constant struggle for me, so I will keep working on it.

Hair is definitely hard to do. :( and like I said, it isn't really that anything is wrong with it, it's just one possible thing that I could see being changed if one were so inclined.

Thank you, and for the fave as well.  Is that your real name?  Ailith Hawke?  Because that is about the coolest name I've seen outside of a fantasy novel.  It's right up there with Valon Cross, who is a guy I work with.

Ah well.  My oldest daughter's idea is that when she gets married, instead of taking her husband's name, or hyphenating, they'll pick a cool name, like Stormbringer or something, and just both change their names.  I wish I had thought of that...

I didn't know there was so much LesMis fandom around here

Yes, she IS lovely, and my reaction during the film was like "Marius, c'mon, you've got such a beauty at your side...". By the way, I couldn't understand what was the Marius' secret to be such a success among girls; personally, I enjoyed Enjolras far more (although I can't usually look at men with long blond curls - it hurst my eyes at some point ^^; but this one had something special ;)).

Who knew there were so many beautiful people in 19th century Paris? :)   So you think Marius should have been courting Eponine, and Eponine should have been going after Enjolras?  Sounds like a fan fiction in the making...

Of course I didn't mean it, but you gave me such a great idea for a fanfic theme. :D Then, I don't know Eponine's taste, it seemed to be focused a little more on Marius-like guys, though. ;)

I like how you left the line work away from her cheeks and forehead, as this gives a nice sense of depth and volume. The job you did on her hair is excellent. :)

You're welcome. One thing that has always helped me starting out is to think of hair in sections and strands based on where it is they start on the head, and to mind the flow of the hair which usually starts from the crown and where the hair is parted. It then flows and contours from there. If you take this and divide each part into sections (like bangs, sides, etc.) you have everything compartmentalized in a way that makes dealing with each section easier to understand or so that you can focus on one at a time. I'll bet there are folks who use multiple layers for each section of hair too, so they're not disturbing each other. I might do that once I'm good with layers.
