Sigrid Unmasked by staino Sigrid Unmasked by staino
Do any of you remember the drawing I did of the Female Dwarf Sigrid? Here is a link. [link]

What does the most beautiful dwarf in the world look like?
When I posted the original image I had no intention of drawing her with her mask off. Sigrid is a dwarf unaware of her magically augmented looks. I described her has having devastating beauty. How could I draw the most beautiful lady in the world?

Then a few of you requested that I draw her face uncovered. I was rather nervous about this, everyone has their own tastes and proclivities on physical beauty.

It took a while to get what I wanted. I drew and erased several versions, changing features and the shape of her face as I went along. I tried making her sexy then doe eyed then grinning. In the end I chose to give her a youthful girl-next-door look with eyes that seem old. This is not a drawing of absolute beauty. I think I chose to make her more down to earth looking because I wanted to have some of her personality show through.
So there you have it!

The original is about 8 ½ inches tall by 71/4 inches wide.

Hey Staino!

Again some good work.

The Girl is definitly a Heroine - like the Jeanne d´Arc of France.
The pircture got a real nice dynamic flow - without looking like a simple sketch!

She´s got some reallly romatic looking Eyes!

So nice of you to say! :highfive:
When I was a boy my father would tell me stories of Jeanne d´Arc. I suppose it had it's affect on me.
I tried to give her eyes an inviting look. I'm glad you noticed. Thanks!

Perfect face for her! I do feel a simple beauty from this and personality truly enhances (or detracts) beauty! Great character development!

I got the idea for the soft shading with the bold lines form the artist Alphonse Mucha. :-)

wowowowowow! the first thing i thought was, "yes! the beauty unveiled!" i love this kind of beauty-the beauty of a well balanced and proportioned face with personality is a master work. well done! i can't do noses, i just draw little lines to show they're there.
i should post one...
(hem hem...may i suggest another picture of sigrid? i would love for you to continue her story line.)

Niiice... Features are clean and clear and beautifully feminine enough so that most anyone would say she's beautiful - and THAT is what absolute beauty really is. If EVERYONE agrees, there's no arguing it! ^_^ (collected)
