The Look by manoarts The Look by manoarts
Finally I got a scanner, so that I do not have to photograph my drawings any longer.
This is a picture which inspired me and I would like to draw for a long time.
Spend several hours finishing it, but I think the time was worth it.
So, check it out ;).

The detail is definently what makes this such a lovely and exquisit piece. The only thing I would perhaps consider changing is the the lines on the lips, they sometimes make our subjects look older. However this drawing is still magnificent.

My jaw dropped when I read that this was actually a drawing, after further inspection I could see the shading and shadows. This is *amazing*, my older brother actually didn't think it was a drawing until I pointed out the places that convinced me.

Wonderful!

Flowers? I bought flowers? I know I'm (in all likelyhood) having a ditz day (& you're probably talking to someone completely else) but isn't that tomorrow? Wouldn't worry about the shadows, took me ages to notice them - then it's so hard to drag the eye away from her eye (great composition - whether yours or the initial photographer's).

Wish I had the patience you do.

The thing with the flowers is just something you say in Germany when you want to thank somebody. So its just like "Thank you".
And it is sadly not my composition *g.

Ah k, it wasn't me (yay) & I learnt something new, bonus.

(I had wondered whether that particular choice of crop/frame and angle were yours - still beautifully drawn, texture like silk)

Love this picture. Couldn't believe it was drawn traditionaly and after (quite a while) staring at it the only give away/confirmation I could find were the shadows under the nose. Beautifully done, I particularly like the fluidity (if that's even a word) to it and fantastic detail without looking cluttered.

What did you use? Charcoal/Graphite/Pastel? How long did it take?

:iconmanoarts:
manoarts Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks for the flowers ;). And yes, the shadows under the nose are a little bit too dark.
I used graphite pencils (HB, 2B, 4B, 5B and 8B). It take round about 15 - 20 hours, but I don't count them.
I'm just happy when I'm finished.

Ja, der Scanner reflektiert immer etwas bei diesen größeren Bleistiftflecken, die schwarz sein sollten.
Da hab ich dann bei den Haaren etwas mit dem Brush-Tool nachgebessert.
