Beauty, Crowned
Graphite on smooth bristol
April, 2012

I seem to have more trouble getting a scanner or camera to capture all of the subtle tones and greyscale of graphite :p I guess I'll go back and try to lighten it a bit more; as it is, the whites are still a little bit grey...

Anyways, working on a couple more beauty drawings, girls with leaves/flowers/stuff in their hair. Should look good once I've got the pair mounted and framed; intended to compliment the "Zum Himmel/of the Earth" pair. I've actually got a few things on my desk at the moment....things should be interesting!

Photo reference used with the kind permission of *Nelleke go and check out her gallery! Sure, there are beautiful women, but her atmospheric shots are simply outstanding! :D

Off the top of my head I don't remember the exact time, but this much detail usually works out to about 20-25 something hours. Enjoy!

This is truly a beautiful piece. I myself tried once to work on smooth bristol paper, although I achieved the desired look I didn't enjoy the process. Whenever I draw with graphite on bristol paper it is always the rough texture.

This is incredible! I can not do realism to save my life, I try to copy but it doesn't work out. I am self taught. Have you had schooling? I am in awe of your work.

I'm self taught-- I took the standard Art classes in school, but most of what I do I've figured out on my own. Lots of trying for new styles, or effects, or to better capture ____ in an image. Lot's of trial and error, too; see how something works out, if I like it and what not
Good Luck! :D
