You should be proud of yourself.  Ducky has been deemed the HARDEST member of the gang to draw. (With both handdrawn and on the computer.) Being able to draw her with such precision shows quite a bit of talent.  No one has been able to draw Ducky perfectly without TONS of practice.  Seriously, if you can draw her, you can draw anyone.

If you ask me, you did quite well with her, though I'm sure a certian mod will be by soon and tell you if you're a little off or not. :P: (Chances are that you messed up with the nose.  That's THE hardest part of her.) (Though if you got that right, you'll be highly praised. :D) Anyways, great job, and I hope you keep it up! :^.^:

The nose.. I did that part over 4 times.. The mouth 6. The original(coloured) drawing is this:


Edit: I have only drawn ducky once before.. And only her head, because her body didn't want to work out. This time the head turned out a bit strange, while the body worked out fine. I know it is just putting 2 parts together,, but is sooo hard.

I changed this topic name as you requested.

Very nicely-done, Mumbling!  Photoshop is a tricky program to get used to; I took a class on it back in high school and I'm not not very good with it. :p

Very cool!

Since your drawing came out so well do you plan on doing more?

I don't know if there really is a scale on some characters being specifically harder to draw than others, but I guess that perception may vary depending on the artist. The proportions are certainly tricky.
I like the expression of your character (a bit like she just noticed something or is a little surprised about something).
As for constructive criticism, you mentioned that the nose was particularly difficult for you. I think the lower part of Ducky's nose usually runs roughly parallel to the upper part of her mouth. Her hands (though scientifically incorrect) sport an opposable thumb as seems to be the case with Ducky's right- but not with the left hand in the picture where fingers look a bit too equal in length.
Please don't mistake this for harsh criticism or something. Please keep going, I'm looking forward to see your next pictures Iris :yes

I do, yes. Littlefoot has helped me today. I am working at ducky being angry, but this time I make it from nothing. The drawing you see here... Her position was from a movie. (although the head was done by myself) Now I am planning to do both the head and the body by myself.

@ malte.. I am not really the one who's got a big eye for detail. They say Ducky is the hardest to draw, I don't know.. I think Cera is the hardest. I had the nose almost paralel to her mouth before.. But it was really looking strange =P. Next drawing might get more details though.

If you wish to work on some of her face parts more you could practice drawing ducky's face doing different expressions.

I guess the ratio of the mouth to the eyes would have to be taken into account too. The distance of the mouth to the left / right eye would be similar but might vary a bit depending on the expression ;)  <_<  -_-
I think (again, this is just meant to help you and not to talk low of your drawing which I really like) the mouth is a little wry as the left corner of her mouth seems to be closer to the left eye than the right corner of her mouth to the right eye (left and right from Ducky's point of view). If now the nose was parallel to the mouth it would look like the nose was larger on one side than on the other. Faces are tricky as all the parts of it are interrelated. I don't want to know how much eraser volume I have used up on faces already :lol

Looks pretty good. :yes I tried to draw Ducky once but it turned out terribly.  I don't remember if I posted it here or not.  I certainly hope not.  It was baaaaaaad. :p

Eh, you can always try again Austin...! :yes

If at first, you don't succeed, try, try again...

If at first, you DO succeed, try to hide your astonishment...! :lol

The best way to get better at drawing is to keep drawing, or so I've heard.
