And colored this sketch : Feedback more then welcome, I learn through feedback. I have much to learn, but I am happy with my progress. So please, please tell me what you think. Yes, she looks cartoonish, but I have never drawn face or skin digitally before, I hope I will get there one day. I did not plan to color this, but when I started to draw I realized how bland it was going to look, and decided it needed colour. -+-+-+-+- PS 5 + wacom bamboo tablet credits partial dress reference: background : Tue, 24 Feb 2015 01:40:46 -0500 Human Doll <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />allegory personal work 95% of pencils and a touch of PS5 Tue, 06 Jan 2015 01:31:23 -0500 Ecce Venefica <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />I do not care if this is the worst or the best thing I have drawn, what I care about is that is probably the most important. And it took me 7 years to finish the initial sketch. I always wanted to finish it, but always feared it will not look as it should, as it does in my head. I finished it finally thanks to inspiration provided by these 2 pictures, I have stumbled upon recently: the tree: by :devSusanCoffey: the mansion: by :devAnsuz-Wunjo: The tree is called Silent Guardian, and it is an old cemetery oak. An Oak that feeds on human flesh, strangely magical, and almost aware in a very non-human sense of that word. It is neither moral nor amoral, it is just a part of nature, it is not concerned with good and evil. Nevertheless even though the witch is tainted with darkness, the Oak does recognize her as a legitimate heir to the land it feeds on. -+-+-+- only pencils :icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz: The Witch belongs to me. Thu, 02 Oct 2014 01:31:24 -0400 Beauty and the Beast <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />Definitely my favorite tale I remember from childhood. For me the Beast was always more intriguing and alluring then any dull prince charming. (I fairly early discovered I differ from other girls my age... I was the only one disappointed at the end when the Beast turned into a mere human...) If I could have that story the way I want, a charming prince would steal Belle, believing he is saving her from a monster. Belle would stab him at the first occasion, wounding him, escaping right back to the Beast's castle, taking her own faith in her own hands, actively shaping it, not being just a mindless price to a male hero (as most fairytales portray women). The price would surely followed her back to the castle, where the Best would teaching him an important lesson. No wonder the theme of Beauty and Beast found a way into my own stories. It took shape of Lady Amara and Azadir the White Wolf. She is a girl with the gift of the second sight, and prophetic dreams. He is a werewolf who fell for her. In my stories she was not kidnapped, but she did leave Azadir at one stage, they were eventually re-united, but the ending was bitter sweat... The moths are drawn to her, because she is the Light. I really hope you like it. I put all my heart into it... and a lot of time... Have a nice day. -+-+-+- pencils contrast adjusted after scanning Used reference for the Beauty : from :devmahafsoun: gallery, the most beautiful and elegant model I have seen.

Rusalkas live at the bottom of lakes and rivers. In the middle of the night, they would walk out to the banks and dance in meadows. If they saw handsome men, they would fascinate them with songs and dancing, mesmerize them, then lead them away to the river floor to their death. Perhaps one day I will find time and patience to color it. -+-+-+- used reference for the face: from :devfaestock: wonderful gallery Fri, 09 May 2014 03:30:06 -0400 Shaman <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />I knew a piebald horse once, named Shaman.
