Oriental beauty by Orpheelin Oriental beauty by Orpheelin
Traditionnal drawing I've made yesterday. I miss so much this trad media. It was a real pleasure to come back to that.
Black and white pencil, gold pen, grey canson.

Do you mean this Natalie Portman?  : upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…

Because their nose/eyes/jawbone/cheeks and general shape of face look rather different?

I somehow get this feeling sometime, especially when the drawing isn't a realistic style but a comic or manga or a bit manga style. As it is a way to simplify features, the characters can roughly look like many people in real life and each of us see (or don't see) a resemblance. It's even more the case when we deal with a stylisation of a general kind of female beauty.

I often find that those kind of stylized female beauties with rafined features: long ovale face, high and soflty rounded forehead, long thin nose, elongated eyes etc... like in the manga Cobra^^ generaly remind me of their real-life equivalents. All of them: Eva Green, Keira Knightley, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Liv Tyler... and those celebrities probaly became famous, among other gifts, because they fited this kind of feminine beauty ideal. Althoug they differ from the idealized drawing as the details aren't the same. I guess it's more like a general feeling of a generic kind of beauty that I guet, so I'd be very curious to see those imaginary faces drawn in a realistic style, to see how they'd really look like in real life :) !

That is so beautiful how do you scan and keep such detail in your work ? Do you outline it with a art program ?

a role game. you meet with some friends in real life and then play (based on books and your character-paper) adventures in a paralell universe
sounds nerdy but it's great fun ^^

Funny enough, I also found one of the characters from my role playing group in this picture - we're also playing "The Dark Eye", which is in German "DSA" (abbreviation for "Das Schwarze Auge").

At least for me, the character I thought of is a oriental dancer who can cast magic by dancing ... and the player behind that character is probably the most talented role player in my group :)

I apologize for interfering with that answer stack after posting some more general thoughts about it earlier :)

I *LOVE* when you have a line drawing, or one in black and white, with one colour used to highlight certain areas. Sometimes I've discovered this in my stuff when I accidentally colour parts on my "Lines" layer, then disable the colours layer. Really beautiful drawing. :)
