-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!:)

3H pencil (THE best working with shades like on the cheekbone)
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
