I understand that the name of this post may be a bit misleading - never fear - there is no need for a midwife for the Mathey family. "Call the Midwife" is the name of the BBC series I started watching recently on PBS. I have a love of all things "baby" and a love of all things "British" so it makes for smashing viewing!
This girl is my sad attempt at one of the main characters from the show - it is also my first attempt to draw someone who is real and not just straight from my imagination.
Me - "Corey, Do you think this looks like Jenny Lee
from Call the Midwife?"
Corey - "I guess so. . . (long dramatic pause)
What is Call the Midwife?"
Started with the basic silhouette and her lips - they always seem easier than the eyes!
I was trying to add some shadowing around the top of her nose but it made her look like she had a shadowy "unibrow" - not the look I was going for but in the end I was happy with how she turned out.
I will leave you with the angle I always love the most - upside down. My girls always seem to look better from this vantage point.
