Ayeeee O.o *jaw drops wide on floor* How in the WORLD did you do so good on this? and in just 2.5 hours? Wow, I wish had the talent for realism like that. But I still got ALOT more work to go through till I get that far (especially with the female body >_<) I love how she looks alluring in this pose. Her clothing fits nicely upon her body too, you can tell what shape she is easily. Her jewelry matches her really wlel too. I like the setting of the clouds(or is that mist?) as well, it adds a neat effect to her pose. (Man I seriously want to run up and squeeze her to death rofl, she looks so darn real lol) =) =)
The female body is so much fun to draw, and I think it's because it's very easy to exaggerate areas without making it look unbelieveable.
How did I do it? I dunno. I just sat down and sketched it out, and then relised that it was the perfect opportunity to practise forcing myself to do details, so this is what happened. Originally it was going to be part of the card deck, but she demanded on being a fortune teller, and how could I refuse?
(I don't know if it's clouds or mist.. some kind of vapour, though. ) Thanks so much for the kind review, Chris!
Oh my gawd, oh my gawd, Robin . This is MARVELOUS!!!!!!! This is your best drawing in my opinion. I love her face, the position, the shading. Its beautiful, i know beauty has nothing to do with art, but its so beautiful. Great great amazing job. I'm humble by your talent. I've called everyone in the house to come and see yur art. They all love it, they congratulate you. New fav!
lol, let me tell you deserve the praise, your art is incredible. You have the capacity to really infuse your drawing with such emotion and movement that the eyes is drawn to it again and again. The sexyness and glamour just glow around her. Again, great awesome job.
I'm SO loving that smiley... Why did I not notice those new smileys? I will use them now...
Anyhow, back on topic - Most of my work is very very quick. I have a short attention span, and unless I'm REALLY into something, I find it very difficult to sit and just work on the same thing for hours and hours on end - so I taught myself to move quickly. This is why I never go for photorealism and just stick to my own style. I've done photorealism before and hated it. I felt like I was always picking out all the bad points about myself, and it just pained me, so I stopped. Ah well. Glad you like this, BR! Sorry for my lengthy reply... <--Teehee!
I understand how you feel about art. I feel almost the same way. I don't like to spend a lot of time on a drawing but if I'm painting and doing photo realism I sort of enjoy it. It's a little relaxing. I don't have to think about it a lot. But if I'm doing like drawings of figures, I just like to be really quick about it.
I like painting if I'm working on a relatively small scale. I've worked overly-large scale far too many times, I guess, forced to do subject matter that didn't interest me too much. Urgh. I haven't touched my paints aside from watercolours since I graduated from college... They will make their comeback someday soon, I expect - I know the vibrant colours are starting to pull at me again.
;) I've been back for a while, hun. Mostly posting in the paper demon section with a few different things. Thanks so much, Karana! You make me feel all nice and stuff - like I can't express myself without sounding stupid.
Okay first things first. What you have done here is nothing short of a masterpiece!!! To date this is my favorite of your beautiful works.
Her face is just gorgeous and the expression you gave her gives me the feeling of innocence and serenity. I also get a playful teasing from it too.
That dress is just one incredibly alluring number but I just want you to know that her figure is what makes the dress fabulous. She fills it ever so nicely and the swell of her breasts are perfecta as they are neither too large nor too small. You attained that perfect ballance of size and shape. The female form is such a beautiful thing to behold indeed which is truely evident in this flawless piece.
The accesories also are worth mentioning as they ever so lightly almost caress her busom and intwine her hair, which if I may, looks as provocative as that brief glimpse of thigh and hip.
I was going to skip remarking on them but those eyes are just drawing me in. What sort of thoughts are behind those eyes? They have a mischeivous playfulness that makes me want to explore.
Even the way you've positioned her is perfect. As I look upon it I can't see her in any other way. She is in that pose because she could be in no other pose. If she was holding the globe in another position other than the position it is in would just change the entire piece completely. It is there because it is perfect there. Just like the back and foreground are what they are because they could not be anything else.
What to write back to that? Goodness me! I'm so glad you like her. I think I'll save this to my computer so I can swell my head when it needs it. It's already twice the size it was before you wrote your review. Thanks, Lloyd.
Oh my holy hell Robin! She is so beautiful! Her pose is so very mesmerising. And that face... I am utterly speechless. You have gone above and beyond with this picture. She is so very alluring. Man.. I am really at a loss for words right now.
