Shadowness - Ileina Hey! I'm 24 years old and I come from Austria. I love to draw animals and people! My favourite tools are CarbOthello pastelpencils, Polychromos and ... en Your Song <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />Hey guys! This is one of the things I wanted to draw ever since I saw the photo... which means for years! It was very interesting to draw an instrument, especially such a beautiful one like a violin. And yes, I had to use a ruler as a little help :) The whole drawing was a bit more timeconsuming than I expected and some parts of it were very boring to do (background) ;) Materials I used: Bristolboard, actual size 33x24cm Faber Castell Pencils H, HB, 2B, 5B, 8B BluTac Ruler Tombow Mono Zero erasers Tissues and tortillion totally 26 hours over several weeks The beautiful ref is from Thanks for looking!

At the moment I have an unusual drawing push, so I'll take advantage of it as long as it lasts ;) I really haven't done any celebrety portrait in a long time and for me it seems that the last 500 drawing had been animals and commissions... Materials I used: Bristolboard A5 Faber Castell Pencils H, HB, 2B, 5B, 8B BluTac Tombow Mono Zero erasers Tissues and tortillion a bit more than 13 hours Thanks for looking! Viki Wed, 03 Oct 2012 07:32:15 -0400 Dracula <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />Yeah... this is Count Dracula! Since Bram Stoker is the godfather of all vampire stories, my choice was an easy one ;) ...also I'm not creative enough for creating something "original" Also Gary Oldman is one of my most favourite actors! A funny sidenote... I ALWAYS thought the name is Bram Stroker... just one or two weeks ago, I realized it isn't XD (not even noticed it, when I searched for a ref ) Faber Castell Pencils H, HB, 2B, 5B, 8B Faber Castell Polychromos Bristolboard, size ca. 20x26cm About 18 hours Viki Wed, 03 Oct 2012 07:30:36 -0400 Where's the nut? <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br /> "Squeak, squeakin', squeak, squeakity." Hiya! Here's just a little scratchboard work I did in between... At the moment I'm working on two other (too timeconsumig) drawings, so I thought I should just do something quick for a change Done on Essdee Scraperboard 22,9 x 30,5cm and it took me about two or three hours. The lovely ref is here: Thanks for watching! Viki Wed, 03 Oct 2012 07:28:41 -0400 I am the Tiger <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />What's New Pussycat? Done in June 2012. I must say, I had never ever such a detailed and time-consuming drawing. Actually I spent more time with it than with the drawings of last five years put together XD I have to say two important things about it: - I hate whiskers! - Get the f*** off with wood!!! The Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is a tiger subspecies that inhabits the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Sumatran tigers do not live in groups, every tiger has its own territory and cats meet only to mate. The sumatran tiger is the smallest of all tiger subspecies, they swim very well and fast. It was classified as critically endangered by IUCN in 2008 as the population is projected to be 441 to 679 individuals, with no subpopulation having an effective population size larger than 50 individuals, with a declining trend. Materials I used: Bristolboard A3 Faber Castell Pencils H, HB, 2B, 8B (no Lumo this time, as I wanted to keep the soft tones) Kneadable eraser and BluTac Tombow Mono Zero erasers <3 (it would have been impossible without them!!) Tissues and a big fat tortillion 51 hours over nearly two months! (It’s actually a record for me!) Thanks a lot to "mangieb" for the amazing stock! I will do a lot of more “Wildlife” art in future, as I’m planning to have a big exhibition next year where I’ll need at least 20-30 drawing to fill the space! Thanks for looking!

I really enjoyed working on that, though it was really hard work to make a proper scan XD Size is 22,9 x 30,5cm and it took me a bit more than 8 hours. Thanks a lot to Woxys for letting me use her awesome <a href="">shot</a> as a reference!

I managed to make the colors more "full" and adjust the proportios a bit (it's 100% freehand drawn!). And of course, I made a proper scan, so now it looks like the drawing :D Black paper, size A3 Original drawing made with<i> "Faber Castell - Pitt" </i>pastelpencils, about 6 hours work, Current drawing: <i>"Stabilo - CarbOthello"</i> pastelpencils, added 1-2 hours. Stay tuned, because I'll overdraw more of my older drawings! Mon, 01 Aug 2011 04:15:45 -0400 Wurli and Pumi <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />Done 2010 This was a christmas present for my cousin. The beautiful horses, Wurlitzer and Pumuckl, belongs to her. Made with pastels on white paper A3 and about 20 hours. Thu, 16 Jun 2011 13:36:49 -0400
