After I uploaded the sketch, I compared the two. Now I feel embarrassed. Like I want to stamp a huge FAIL on my attempt to draw this picture!! This image is already in the best form it could be... What was I thinking??

I completely disagree!  You're drawing is fantastic, I've tried my hand at it and failed miserably so keep up the good work and feel free to try drawing any of my other photos if you wish :)

the lighting of this is quite interesting, and I liked reading how you did it in a previous comment, but I'd just be lying if I didn't say what immediatelly catches the eye; your veins. I love how they stand out, it's beautiful. You have great veins :) are they normally that proeminent, or did your pose help it? I'm guessing it's both
congrats for the DD

Hahah thanks! :)  Yeah my veins are usually pretty bulged, but the pose helped a bit and the hoodie sleeves as well :P Its quite difficult to get the veins now that its winter haha

Thanks :)

Yeah, winter doesn't help much to enhance veins, but I'm glad they turned out so beautiful here. It's one of the very few good things of having 45C (113F) around where I live, I get to see my veins quite well and frequently

you're quite welcome :)

Me too. Is that a consistent throughout the year or does it actually get cold in winter?  Winter here is pretty much just a normal 20ish degrees celsius

:iconhoshisamavalmor:
HoshisamaValmor Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013
No, in winter we normally get to 0 to 10C temperatures in the really cold days, but we had a couple of -1C or -2C days last year. Cold winters with really hot summers around here, we cross the whole spectrum.

I love the light. How do you get light like this? :) Did you read a tutorial? I`m learing about light settings/equipment these days.. and this is perfect!

:icongrant-booysen:
Grant-Booysen Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013  Professional Photographer
I just used the most accesible light source, the window :P  I had my setup in front of my bedroom door with a black reflector against it behind me, right next to a large sliding door.  This'll give you really nice soft light and soft shadows as well.  

If you're looking for tutorials, I'd recommend looking at DigitalRev and Froknowsphoto on YouTube, from the tutorials I did look at were from them, everything else I learn was just experimental.  That's the best way to learn, put your camera on manual, and just take photos like that until you know the camera inside out, then you can make use of aperture or shutter priority.

If you want to know anything feel free to send me a note I'd be happy to help :)
