A Delightful Bella

I've been taking a drawing class and I've used the assignments to complete some of my Twilight character sketches. Some time ago, while attending my grandson's Scouting activity, I noticed a young woman across the room who had this great face. Immediately, I thought, "There's my idea of Bella!" She possesses that everyday girl appearance, along with that certain spark about her that sets her apart as well. My daughter was acquainted with her and knew that she was a avid Twilight fan and she kindly allowed her to take some quick shots. I've made very few adjustments to the shape of the face and the darkness of her hair (this girl has beautiful red hair). And I know, everyone has their own idea for these characters so I don't expect mine to match with anyone else's, but here is my attempt. I imagine after the movie, Kristen Stewart will be everyone's idea of Bella anyway.

She's a beautiful Bella. It's amazing how we all have our own interpretations of these characters. I love to see different visions of these beloved characters.

Beautiful -- this is what I pictured for Bella. And you know that the "sketch" you did of Edward is him.
