My Madame X by xanderking My Madame X by xanderking
My version of Madame X, the most famous painting by John Singer Sargent, of course, Nicole Kidman did not pose for him or for me. This is based on a N. Kidman pic that appeared in Vogue magazine in 1999. Pencil, scan, and coloring in PS.

You know, I have a friend here on DA with the same problem, so he tried and tried and he did good, but now he got himself a tablet and it seems hes using his left hand again... You could try that. I mean, if you want to go back to drawing, its easier then paper and pencil I can tell you that much and a tablet you can find for less than 100 euros!
