Shadowness - SilentDeath http://shadowness.com My name is Allan and I am a traditional artist from germany who likes to draw portraits and other stuff with graphite and coloured pencils. I use also... en Lady Lara Croft http://shadowness.com/SilentDeath/lady-lara-croft <a href="http://shadowness.com/SilentDeath/lady-lara-croft"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/83192/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />This is my traditional version of the very popular Tomb Raider underworld cover. I drew this on my usual hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchpaper with 190gsm. The background was done partially with coloured pencil and pastels. Lara was done completely with my Faber Castell polychromos coloured pencils. Hope you guys like it.

It´s Quorra from the latest Tron Legacy movie and one of my favorite coloured pencil drawings besides my Lara Croft drawing. I liked the reference so much that I wanted to draw it. It was quite fast done for a A2 drawing. Approx. 20-25 hrs. I drew everything with my Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencil. Hope you guys will like it. Thanks for looking.

I used my Aya Ueto drawing http://shadowness.com/SilentDeath/aya-ueto to create this Tutorial. More will come soon. You can see me also on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/SilentDeath007100 Allan.

This was the first time I drew an asian girl. The hair was the most difficult part on this piece but it turned out great and (in my opinion) it´s still my best drawn hair. Tools I used: Hahnemühle A3 sketchpaper 0,3mm B and HB and also 0,7mm B and 2B mechanical pencils! 3H, B and a bit 2B normal pencils! Tissue, brushes and q-tips for some blending! Sharpened erasers for some fine highlights! A printed reference! Here is the Tutorial based on this drawing: http://shadowness.com/SilentDeath/general-tut-for-drawings Allan Mon, 06 Jun 2011 06:10:41 -0400 Flight to Wayland http://shadowness.com/SilentDeath/flight-to-wayland <a href="http://shadowness.com/SilentDeath/flight-to-wayland"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item4/112015/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Sorry for my long inactivity here but this one took me almost 2 months to finish. The title leads to the novels of the thrawn Trilogy from Star Wars. All done in Graphite on bristol paper. I used a reference for the Star Destroyer from the awesome Ansel Hsiao (Fractialsponge) http://www.modelermagic.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/c11.jpg Idea and composition was done entirely by me. I hope you´ll like it. Thanks for looking.
