The Mirror Room -

Moderators always have the final say.

Moderator(s): Weisen1, Tiamat4eva


The characteristics of this room are explained in the FAQ and in the rules.
Be sure you know what's allowed and what is not before you begin to draw! :)

[!] If you are new to realism, please start with it in the Training Grounds and not here. This is a two star room and experiments are not accepted. Only start with your realism here when you are sure you are up to the standards.
[!] Only PHOTO-REALISM is allowed in this room. Fantasy creatures are allowed as long as they look as if they actually exist, though we suggest to draw them in the Grimoire.

Thank you for reading the rules and have fun drawing!

one of my favs so far. I can't remember using ShiPainter before, but I really like it!

I used a ref from google images, but I can't find it now. :/

I wonder what club you need to belong to to get people to comment on drawings on this site. You do really quality work. I love your stuff it's really interesting to look at, I'm glad you've been posting a lot lately.

Mizukodomo14 @ 2011-12-22 01:38:18     
Wow! lovely work!

tiamat4eva @ 2013-01-18 03:39:07     
Overall, I'm quite fond of this image. The dark neutral pallet really gives a feeling of emotion here. However, this is the realism room, and many of the strokes are way too painterly. ESPECIALLY on the hat where it's very clearly rushed. Also, below the beard and the shoulder region are especially rushed, and textures on the face could blend a little bit better. The textures would have been perfectly fine in a different room, but the fact that they look like a painting more than a photo makes me have to ask you to correct it. Since it's been a while since you posted it, I'm going to be lenient on the time frame, but I will check back. Please work more on this image or it will have to be removed. Thank you, and let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks for posting the ref.

Looking between the ref and the image the proportions are very accurate and the mood of the picture is very nice.

[edit1] The image is looking much better but the hair could use more strands because right now it is looking very blurry.

Could you please fix this?

Emilee @ 2010-01-07 19:30:08     
This is very good! I love the shading in the glasses :) Could you post the reference picture though?

The only crit I have is that some of the lines could be a little softer...especially the knuckles and the fluff around her head. Overall, though, great job! Black & White realism is my favorite haha :D

Tomie @ 2011-04-12 05:56:29     
Great job. My only critique would be that I didn't know who it was until I found out who it was and I'm a huge Janis Joplin fan. I think it's the youthfulness of your drawing. She looks very young compared to the ref pic.

Raxia @ 2015-01-19 05:40:47     
I agree with the last commenter, she looks really young. Can't really put my finger on what causes this effect.

jackalpup @ 2009-11-14 21:46:33     
there! my very first attempt at drawing a fish in any medium.

i've been walleye fishing a lot recently and i have become inspired!

i am never drawing a fish again! scales are difficult!

tish @ 2009-11-15 13:57:39     
Great job. Litning on the scales is superb, and hint of teeth (?) looks menacing

turtlequeen @ 2009-11-16 02:24:17     
wow, this is great! I love the colors that you used; the deep greens really bring out the warmth in the orange tones - it looks almost golden! beautiful lighting and detailing too. The scales and fins and everything...beautiful job!

weisen1 @ 2009-11-18 22:24:31     
Great picture so far.
Could you please post the reference?

jackalpup @ 2009-11-19 21:23:02     
i had the image on my computer, but i did a search and found it! sorry for not posting the ref earlier.

it was in an image bank, i don't know who the original artist was. i think it's a painting, anyway.

minori @ 2009-11-30 05:46:46     
this looks amazing! I love the light reflecting off the scales.

Emilee @ 2009-12-13 20:45:29     
The detail in this picture is amazing! The eye and the scales are shaded so well!

phoenix_fire777 @ 2010-02-13 07:51:26     
wow! it looks very realistic. those scales are to die for... erm actually they make the fish look alive. I wish I had that patience to execute details.

TisForTwee @ 2010-05-30 21:47:19     
This is good! The detail on the scales with the lighting especially is exquisite.

OGjimbo @ 2010-06-10 12:29:50     
Awesome, very very well done sir.

onishounen @ 2010-10-06 12:40:05     
This is one cool looking fish!

I think you captured the tone and shade of the fish really well.

What kind of fish is this by the way?

The Libertine Heathen @ 2010-11-19 18:48:59     
I do enjoy her lips. That little smirk is what makes the image. BUT, the corner of the mouth does extend out a bit too much; it would look much more realistic if that was brought in a little bit.

My first post to the Mirror Room. I hope it is acceptable (I'm sure you'll let me know if it's not). I'm pretty new to realism, but I spent a long time on this pic in an effort to live up to the high standard of the work here. C&C is extremely welcome!! I would really like to improve so please give me your honest opinion. Ref:

(Edited on March 29, 2009, 12:35 am)

Airirea @ 2009-03-29 05:36:52     
Wow is my thought on this :D

Very close mirror to the original pic. In comparison to the ori pic,the cheek bone is a bit off, the shadows at the neck is a bit too dark, and the lips is a bit pinker?).

But otherwise it is a beautiful painting and looks really like him. Loves your stroke at they eyeslids. The whole thing looks like a mix of soft pastels and oil paint.

GeminiRyoko @ 2009-03-29 22:06:45     
This looks almost exactly like the reference picture. A closer look at both of them side by side, i agree with the cheekbone part and the neck being a little too dark. Other than that it looks fantastic

I really love the mouth, its really hard to do teeth, and you did that very well! It looks exactly like him. Good job =)

kungfu05 @ 2009-03-30 01:40:21     
HAHA this is so great. You managed to make him look even better! The contrast of the skin is superb. I do have to say this is an interesting subject XD.

Lauraz @ 2009-03-30 10:44:45     
Thank you so much for your feedback, guys!! :) *delighted* I agree with your critique, Airirea and GeminiRyoko--you're absolutely right. In retrospect, I should ideally have spent longer on it before posting the "safety save" version, but I was terrified of losing what I'd already done. As it was, I spent my two days of permitted "retouch" time fixing serious structural problems that, typically, I only noticed after taking a break for a couple of hours ^_^ Thanks for your compliments too, all of you; it's good to know I'm not a complete failure at this! XD (kungfu, I'm so pleased you commented on the skin contrast! :) :) :) Not sure what you mean by an "interesting subject"? *g* I just thought it was a lovely photo ^_^)

Africa @ 2009-04-29 19:09:41     
Pretty much spitting image of the reference. I even think yours looks better, I had to keep reminding myself which one was the original. Fab job!

Cilia @ 2009-06-14 18:50:38     
First of all, I'd like to say THANK YOU for the wonderful comments on my pics, the Joker one in particular. Seems I haven't been around here for a while and my account was suspended due to inactivity, but I just had to re-register so I could drop you a comment, even though it's a bit late :)

About your picture, it's great and especially for a first submission to the mirror room! Well done. I especially like how you mimicked the blurred photo effect on his left shoulder... Also the hair looks so very realistic.
One thing that strikes me though when I look at this, is that his eyes seems to be a little far apart.. Then again I seem to think the same thing when I'm looking at the original xD
All in all a very good pic and I'd love to see more by you!

Angellis @ 2009-06-25 23:35:49     
Stop drawing portraits! Did you also draw Farrah Fawcett recently too? Ok...too soon...bad joke...but a little creepy., Good picture. You've captured him well.

SlightlyxxTwisted @ 2009-06-28 22:06:47     
Wow, this is amazing! I'm so sad he has passed away, but I know his music will live on! Again, this is an awesome portrait, just beautiful. :)

Alicia @ 2009-07-08 14:47:58     
A beautiful work! Perfect resemblance with the original!

Lauraz @ 2009-07-10 15:22:47     
Thank you so much for your comments, everyone!

Cilia, I had the same problem...I didn't log in for ages (Oekaki Central went down for a while, and I stopped checking in after a bit). I wasn't sure how to re-register, but I seem to have managed it okay now. Thank you SO VERY, VERY MUCH for taking the time and effort to comment on my picture. I can't tell you how much it means to me! I'll take all of your observations on board. I truly hope you'll post here again--you're a real inspiration! :3

Arkartworks @ 2009-08-12 21:13:20     
It's sad how this was drawn before he passed away; the irony. But that's okay, I'm sure everyone is glad this is here. Well done, it turned out very nicely.

Emilee @ 2009-12-15 22:27:47     
This is amazing! It looks JUST like him! The only advice I have is you could run the watercolor tool (white) over the teeth just to make them a little more undefined like in the picture. Teeth are extremely hard to draw, and it usually helps if you blur them a little. :)

All the little texture details on this look very nice.

Africa @ 2008-10-06 10:58:46     
Very nice oekaki indeed! What makes me curios is why you added those 'blurry dots' as if the glass had a reflection of something? It's not in the reference, but it doesn't take away from your drawing, in fact it adds that bit more of realisticness. Fab job!

The lighting on the hair and flesh really pops, the coat as well, though less so on the left side.

ShiningGolden @ 2008-09-01 12:09:40     
Great job on this! His face is perfect, I especially love the black makeup and shading around his eyes. The attention to details in his coat also excellent.

I would like to point out that the aspect ratio of this picture is different from your ref (the ref is more rectangular, and this is closer to square). That doesn't take away from this beautiful piece of work at all, but I think it may have caused you a challenge when you were drawing! Might be something to watch out for in future pictures.

Lauraz @ 2009-03-26 00:21:30 are my idol. Seriously. I'd saw off my foot with a dead beaver to have your ability. The quality of the cloth of his jacket blows me away. The texture of his skin is so tangible, the background so complementary. And you did it so QUICKLY!! (I couldn't do this if I had a whole week!) I'm a total newbie, but I'm humbled by the work I've seen here (and yours in particular), but inspired enough that I hope to get up to two-star level and post here myself soon. At that time, maybe, maybe you will be kind enough to critique me--I'd be honoured to learn from you :) Once again, let me say how astounded I am by the quality of this piece and of your other works.

this is AMAZING! the colors are so crisp, the contrast is perfect, and the shapes are all clearly defined. you've done a beautiful job, it really looks like a real person! the only criticism i have is that the nose is in a different position than in the reference (the area from the nose to the mouth is too large) and the mouth doesn't quite have the same expression as in the photo. but this still screams "living, breathing person" when you look at it. fantastic job!

dragonmist82 @ 2008-09-21 12:30:34     
very well polished! The shading is really good as well especially withe the light coming from more than one direction.

Africa @ 2008-09-28 08:50:40     
Beautiful work here. Nice understanding of lighting and shading. His skin is so smooth looking, perhaps too smooth looking, my only critique would be a lack of texture on his skin. A bit of roughness wouldn't hurt. But great drawing overall!

Uploading this so my browser won't like, die on me or something.

At least it resembles something like Tim Burton, but I think it could be better. I think I drew the left eye at a really bad angle.

Please critique it, even if you have to be an ass about it. I would really appreciate it, because I think this could be so much better.

Very nice face ;)

weisen1 @ 2008-07-13 16:51:23     
It actually came out very similar.
It's probably the shadow beside his right eye, if you look in the ref, it's lighter and defines the shape of the eye more.

Africa @ 2008-07-23 17:35:23     
This is quite good. I think you need to define tis hair a bit more to give it that substance and texture it lacks, and like someone else mentioned, the shading on the left eye could be lighter, hence defining the eye more like it is in the reference picture. Good job overall.

weisen1 @ 2008-06-24 13:08:27     
Still looks quite like her though, just at a different angle..ish.
The neck shadows are really captivating, and the picture looks really nice overall.
However, the shading might be a bit too watery for photo-realism, could you please work on sharpening the details more?

tiamat4eva @ 2008-06-24 17:29:12     
I think this has so much resemblance to Hikki, i was so happy to see it. I'm going to throw in some specific crit: The hair seems the most photorealistic, but some areas need some fine blending such as the shirt, and some of the thicker strokes on the hands. The face appears more blended, but since the brush strokes, particularly around the edge, are less blended, it seems less photorealistic. Hope that helps, good luck!

Person @ 2008-06-25 07:40:32     
Her eyelashes could be more pronounced, and her irises are too cartoony to resemble a photo. The coloring on her flesh(mainly her face more than anything) is choppy. Ordinarilly this would be good, but since you are going for photorealism you should soften the shading. Her hair needs more detail--perhaps more indivual strands? The best parts of this picture include her shirt shading and the shadow of her chin on her neck.

tiamat4eva @ 2008-06-25 20:03:00     
I think in this case choppy is appropriate. The fact that the face isn't totally smooth in addition to the blended details on eyelashes separate this from photorealism. If the goal was to draw this in another room, choppy could be replaced with painterly. This is because it doesn't take away from the overall image, but instead makes a distinction between a lovely piece of artwork that this is, and one that depicts photorealsim.

Person @ 2008-06-26 09:53:06     
Lol I didn't mean it like that, Eri. Sorry. ^^; I meant choppy in the fact that you could depict each stroke, not erattic and uncarefully laid. ;_; Sorry if I offended.

pipi @ 2008-06-28 05:26:25     
I recognized her right away from the main page! I can't do any sort of realism at all!!! I envy you! >_<

Aside from the "not so photo realistic enough" to fit the theme of the room; I think this picture still great! I truly love your painterly style! <3<3<3

KakeranoTsuki @ 2008-06-28 15:23:11     
Uwaaaah~ Hikki~~

I recognized her right away from the front page~ This is really well-done. Her face shape is a bit slender for Hikki, but it still looks like her, so I guess that's okay. The brush strokes do take away from the photorealism, but it looks better like this, in my opinion. C:

Africa @ 2008-07-23 17:27:47     
I have no idea who she is, but I really love this image as it is. I agree it is not a photorealistic image, but I think the style you chose suits this oekaki.

Hikki! I'm so happy to have come across this~ I think you nailed the positioning and shape of the features, especially on her face, very well, but the eyes could use some more detail (in the lashline for example). Also maybe try making some individual hair strands. Regardless of being super-real or not... I still love it :]

The shading on the outside of her left nostril seems a little off. Noses are hard. But the proportions and the placement of everything else on her face seems dead on.

I don't think I realized how hard this picture was going to be when I chose it to draw. I can't even tell you how frustrated I got with her face. I still think its slightly off..but seriously, who can draw something to be exactly perfect anyway? I think the angle of her face was the hardest, I probably spent 75% of the time on her face... Frustrating.

Anyway, I am doing a series of my favorite ANTM models starting with my 7th favorite, Adrianne Curry. This was one of the pictures from ANTM Cycle 1, and probably one of my favorite pictures of all time from the show. Too bad Tyra erased her from existence in the world of ANTM..

I know this is going to get critiqued like crazy, oh well, heres the link.

I believe the picture is by Patrick Katzman back in 2003.

All of the above being said, I think this is my best realism picture to date...

That's an awesome job you've done there.
It looks very close to the original, the only difference I can see is the face is thinner.

I think t is amazing ! I beleive that if you took the ref picaway from your mind, you woul see how great it is.
The only thing that might have turned out different from the actual pic might be the size of the head.. you seem to have made it slimmer than it actually is, but kept the sae size for the nose ad mouth, and I think that is what mde it look a bit different. Hope it helps you see clearer :)

Lauraz @ 2009-03-26 00:23:39

AngstySquirrel @ 2009-08-02 17:27:45     
This is absolutely amazing! The detail is fantastic, and it is obvious you spent alot of time on it.
After looking at the ref picture, I can see that you made the head slightly thin. You also twisted the features of the face clockwise a tiny bit, which may be why it put you off so much.

Other than that, Fantastic :)

Africa @ 2008-02-25 14:26:33     
The lighting and shading on this are fab, very dramatic. Although I feel on his left side (our right) the distinction of the edge of his body blends too much with the bg, and it would be nice to see the negative space between that and the arm more pronounced, because my brain keeps interpreting that as one big mass, and so it somewhat deforms his shape. Apart from that, good work!

I have to agree with Cilia. It really does look like watercolor. It's very nicely done.

wabaka @ 2008-06-28 22:01:38     
wow this is just amazing... For me and a lot of my friends, glass and metal seem to be extremely difficult to portray with colors and such, but you seem to have done it with such skill. Bravo!

Oh my god, I scrolled down and I thought someone had just put a picture of a salt shaker. O_O; Wayyy too real.

LOL! I wasn't expecting a salt shaker. xD

But I love it! :D

Really amazing! Glass is so hard for me to draw and you did an amazing job of making it look real.

This is seriously awesome! So simple and yet so flawless in execution! Bravo!

Well done! I've worked with glass myself, and the advice I do have is to use a different background color, this can really help with giving it more definition. It looks a bit flat as it is. Adding a bit of background shade (especially of the lid) can help as well.
