ArtVenture Contest: + Sketch of a Traditional Indian Woman

in WORLD OF XPILAR4 months ago

Hello Friends,

Indian Woman Final.jpg

It's been a while since I last posted an art work and happy to be back with this post for the @art-venture team's art contest of Freestyle Portrait.
Thanks to team @art-venture, @stef1, @xpilar and other sponsors because of whom, this contest is on.


I have tried to draw the portrait sketch of a Traditional Indian Woman using pencils with step by step procedure as below.
The first step as in most of the cases, is to draw a rough outline of the face part and here we can see the face of the woman with eyes and that traditional bindi/kum kum (dot on forehead) an Indian woman wears.

Outline of other parts of face and extended into the body part and shading of hair part started as in below one.
Indian puranas(meaning old sayings) always depicts the respect for women and if we see the Indian history, there are many great women who fought equally for their existence and also for the freedom of India and to name some of them, Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi, Rani Chennamma of Kittur and many.

Hair part getting shaded fully as we can see below.
Women are always the force behind successful men and women are not behind in in field now and works equally with men including in toughest conditions the Army people goes thru and women are there there too.

Thickening of eyes, lips and other body parts including the decoration of eye rings.

Shading of eyes and bindi part.

Here comes the final one with full face and little part of the body shown is also getting shaded.
I have darkened the photo after snapping it to make it look more natural and hopefully, you all appreciate that.
