four eyes

Pencil on paper, digital edit.

Drawing circles freehand is hard. For those Frankie magazine fans, you might notice a resemblance between this illustration and one of the models in the “Nerdy by Nature” editorial. That editorial was just asking to be drawn. It also made me want a new pair of glasses. Mega nerdy ones at that.

    I like the circle nerd glasses- they're a unique take on the usual rectangle.
    Really cool drawing! I love the coloring, and the hair is great.

    Circle nerd glasses remind me of Luna Lovegood, in a good way! Very nice illustration, I love the softness of it.

    I love those glasses! Recently I got some glasses sort of like that…. the frames were a little smaller and they were black though…
    But anyway, that's really cute!

    @everyone: Thanks for all the kind words πŸ™‚

    @melina: I think my head is also bordering on too round for round frames. I will have to find some to play around with next time I try on glasses!

    @GanymedeGirl: They are quite Luna Lovegood-y, now that you mention it. I <3 Luna Lovegood.

    @Bri & @Danica: Good work. It seems like all the cool kids are doing it. So I guess I should get on the bandwagon soon haha.

    @Ally & @DelanceFashion: Sure did. And thank you both πŸ™‚
