Hello B&W Version

This is the black and white version of hello and I personally prefer this version over the colour one.

    [I'm in agreement with you here - the black and white is just stunning. Probably doesn't help much that I'm a total sucker for black/white pieces. ^^; But for me, the lack of color and the shading and stark contrasts really make this one just pop out.]

    [Favorite Please keep it up!]

    hmm. Very simple, black and white.
    I'm sold. Black and white always makes a person have to imagine the colors. I love that. And I love this picture. Quite beautiful Smile

    This is lovely. You've done a great job of emphasizing the eyes and lips through contrast. The combination of texture is quite fun here as well. Keep it up!

      thank you ^_^ it's been quite some time since I have drawn people. She is one of my fav pics. I love drawings that have little shading and still look so detailed.
      I'd love to master that style but i am to much of a perfectionist.

        Ah, perfectionism - sometimes a blessing in art, but mostly a curse. Perhaps you should just try a few. There was a famous New York Artist in the beginning or middle of the 20th Century that had a style very similar to that used in your drawing... I don't remember his name. If you're interested, I could take the time to look up his work for you?

          that would be awsome ^_^ I'd really appreciate that. It's hard to research art and artists from other countries coz I'm in Australia and when I get to a site with the info, quite often I'll get not available in your region messages. I've kinda been discouraged by it. We don't really get that much art info here, which sucks.

            I finally found him, but my memory wasn't quite accurate. The artist of whom I was thinking was Tom Wesselmann, who painted a number of nude women in the 1930s, emphasizing details on lips and floral centers (placed always on tables). The idea of emphasizing certain parts of the figure to convey an idea was there, but his results and concepts are much different from your own.

              Wow, that sounds awsome! Thank you so much for taking the time to search that artist. I should be able to do some research now that I have a name. He sounds very interesting. Worship

                Smile If you are going to search his work, a word of warning - some of it is fairly explicit. I recommend his painting "The Great American Nude" for a more tame start.
