-Graceling- Waking eyes by Ingvild-S -Graceling- Waking eyes by Ingvild-S
Okay, the first i would like to say is that i HATE plain white BG with my traditional drawings.. thats why im obsessed with texture and such on my traditionals. If this wasnt for a improvement project i would totally do with it as i did my last 2 paintings!:)

Technique:
3H pencil (THE best working with shades like on the cheekbone)
H
HB
3B (for ekstra deep blackening)
Finger (for light smudging)

But yeah, this is my response to my last poll for breaking my artblock, and so far it has been working, I am actually gonna do another one on that poll, but i wont tell which, since this was the nr 1, i will not be doing nr 2 next!;) just one i have really wanted to do lately!^^

This is the improvement from my prevous 2009 drawing:


I really, REALLY hate that picture! I LOVED the model, but i dont think it does him justice! Still, i remembered i LOVED it at the time i did it, and its fun to see how damn much ive improved!^^

Its another from Graceling! I always thought the model were perfect for Prince Po, so that was the idea back then, and since i improved that specific picture, i wanted to keep it that way. And i love gracelig!^^

So, i hope you like it, and just gimme some feedback!:) I would love to know what you think of it!:)

It's fantastic. You can really see the movement in his face, and the detail is stunning.

Thank you!^^ Id be pretty depressed if it wasnt!;) but im so glad you think so!:D I love this so much, and compared to the original, i believe i may be satisfied with a picture!^^ Sort of... Well, looking at the original it was HELL making the refelction! But im glad i made it work!^^ Hihi, well thats why i added the light light red-pink in the bg, to make it look slightly less naked!=P
