Something had opened my eyes

pencils: H | B2 | B4 | B5

Thought I'd try my pencilskills out again :) Some weeks old, I took a photo of it, because my scanner..well, was too lazy for my slow scanner :blushes:, so it might be blurry and not the correct angel. Hope you like...?

++ Please visit // thank you!

oooh. und Zeichnen kannst du also auch noch so gut :)
hast du das freihändig oder von ner Vorlage gemacht? Ich würde mal auf letzteres tippen
TheLaceInterior Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2004
really very gorgeous. i love the idea. the neck looks a little too small maybe? and the outline on the neck is a little too dark it seems. very nice shading though. i think the feather is my favorite part.

This is beautiful. I think its simplicity is what makes it so attractive to me. It's rare to find a good pencil drawing here that's so artistic; most just focus on realism. This is both realistic and expressive. Not to mention gorgeous.
meganlefey Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2004
its beautiful. i would love to see it in colour. it reminds me of linda garland's Goddess paintings.

By the gods! How incredibly beautiful! The idea of the eyes covered with leaves--and the feathers!!--and the snails! Oh, my gods, how thick in culture. I want to eat it, it's so gorgeous.

great job on the leaves. there's something about one side of her mouth that i don't like but i can't put my finger on what. you're really good at this, you should do it more!

fallencupid Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2004
wow. you did such a nice job here. i wish i could draw. :nod: but i couldn't to save my life. :giggle:

best wishes!

:heart: FC
seriouslytwisted Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2004
Gorgeous. You're a really good photographer but I was never aware of your traditional medium skills. I adore pencil drawing, I really love what you've done here. Minimal shading yet everything is perfectly defined. The neck, I feel, looks a bit flat and the nose just slightly tilted. Maybe having less negative space at the bottom would help, right now the lips are right at the centre of the composition and I don't think it works that well. Other than that, it looks beautiful.
SeaFairy Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2004
Hm, yes, maybe you are right, I wll consider recomposing it, thanks for giving it some thought, it is much appreciated! :hug: :nod: :handshake:

Hope you had a great new year's eve.

Ruovanloff Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2004
very nice lia... nice indeed... once more you've taken me away... do it whenever you feel ... oo! hows your recording going? im getting my graphic tablet today! YAY!!!!
SeaFairy Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2004
Whee, thank you :giggle:
Oh, well, recording, there is alot to prepare before you can start, you know. I am just considering if to mix various genres or if to stick to just Jazz or just Indy. I have to see if I will cover other artists or use my own work (which would take much longer) etc etc. so :shrug: :)

Congrats for the tablet and have fun with it :) :clap: :party:

Ruovanloff Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2004
well yeah, anyhow... always remember to stay true to yourself and that the finantial proffit is nothing comapred to the growth of your soul... and It trying to have ffun with the tablet i still have to get used to it... but its happeninng fast so... Im having a blast

Beautiful :)
redlauren Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2004
this looks great. i've been testing out my drawing skills lately, so this is kinda inspiring for me. it seems like you took good advantage of different types of pencils, although i think in some areas there could be a bit more contrast??? i dunno.....

it's gorgeous though, really beautiful. you managed to create this really serene atmosphere on her face without even drawing eyes, which is pretty amazing.
