07-15-2006, 01:15 PM
I made a new work... a draw from life. It's an old ornament (porcelain/wood)... a great-grandmother's gift. I only used a 2b and my new sketchbook... no eraser. Time... 30 minutes (2 for the draw and 28 for shadows). It's very challenging because I usually use photo reference... ehehe this time I tried something new :)
yey 1st to comment and what an onor to comment on such a wonderfull drawing it is so so beutiful and sentimental i simply adore it really really greith job
07-15-2006, 05:18 PM

07-17-2006, 08:29 AM
Wow Nightlight, 30 minutes, i'm amazed and did i read correctly that you ony spent 2 minutes on outline-ing? thats just amazing imo.
07-17-2006, 09:30 AM
woow 30 minutes?? :D and no eraser at all, I'm amazed!
07-17-2006, 09:43 AM
That's the true artwork i've seen. Simple yet interesting.
07-17-2006, 09:45 AM
Wow, excellent! I can't believe you did this in 30 mins, and with no eraser! :o
Keep up the brilliant work! :D
07-17-2006, 12:35 PM
That drawing is really good. It's a cute motive and the way you made it is very nice. You should do more of these :)

Looks very good and done so fast! No eraser was used? Maybe you should try some pen drawings!
08-10-2006, 11:49 AM
Thanks a lot man.. however I'm not good enough to make a portrait with pen.. ehehe it's too difficult for me :p .
Well, yesterday I bought a new scanner... It's an Epson. I'm really happy, it works fine.. :D .
I needed to teste it.. so I made two draws with cp.
Ta dan :)
ehehe I compared this new scanner with my old canon...
I passed the first draw in the old scanner..
There's a big difference in quality (colours are totally wrong) :p ... ehehe.
08-10-2006, 12:18 PM
wow, these last two are just beautiful, really. They're...I don't know...so sunny! I really love them, especially the whole body one.
08-10-2006, 12:44 PM
Wow that makes a big difference, i like the fullbody one alot, you did really good with the clothes and the feet just wow :)
08-10-2006, 01:50 PM
Wow the frist one its awsome indeed ,and i like her position ( dont think on anything "dirty" lol:))..............Oh and I really like how u made her right leg siting on the chair ....and not to mention the little detailes on her blouse ...I love that artwork ....Indeed a great job...:)
Also the second one its gorgeaus too .....
Oh and great to hear that u bought a new "scanning beast "....

08-12-2006, 07:12 PM
Thanks Ray :)
08-14-2006, 07:44 PM
Another portrait... :D
I just wanted to do something different...
I made it with c.p. .... unfortunately I used a wrong paper (too texture)... but that's all :)
08-14-2006, 07:52 PM
Awesome! I like the use of color, and that the drawing is made on black paper ;)
08-14-2006, 07:58 PM
with the wrong paper it still loks absolutely fab! and i think it gives it a n=whole new effect u did urself a favor ;)
beautifull silvana the drawing is awsome...:D
08-15-2006, 10:24 AM
Thanks Suzanne, Kandy and Sena. I really appreciated your nice comments :)
08-15-2006, 10:26 AM
I think it looks cool on that paper!! It's different and beautiful. :)
It looks great, love the lips. :)
I agree with the others on the paper, it gives it a really special look and that really cool. So you should definately not beat yourself up about that.
08-15-2006, 03:26 PM
This Carlos Santana drawing is excellent (good idea to draw him). The volume and contrasts are just fine.
08-15-2006, 03:49 PM
i love the cp drawing, the rough paper looks awesome!
08-15-2006, 04:44 PM
Thanks la, paubey and une artiste :)
I really like the texture effect and the light effects you put into the drawing :)
08-16-2006, 06:49 AM
the latest one looks really cool dear...I think the rough look is kinda cool :D
08-16-2006, 06:47 PM
Thanks Sad And Van :)
08-16-2006, 07:49 PM
Sorry fur the double post :p but I just add a new draw...
08-16-2006, 08:09 PM
That's so nice! I like that you drew it on blue paper, it makes it very unique. :)
08-16-2006, 08:10 PM
Wow this is really really good! The blue paper and soft white shading make her look so fragile and delicate, suits the subject very well! :D
08-16-2006, 09:08 PM
aw thats very beautiful :)
08-16-2006, 09:24 PM
08-16-2006, 09:32 PM
Wow, that is very pretty. I like the blue paper, and the delicate white highlights. I also think its good that you used colour only on her face, it makes that part stand out!:D
08-17-2006, 08:13 AM
I really like this, I like that it's made in all bleu's :)
FANTASTIC. I absolutely love the delicate softness in your drawing, great idea to work on blue paper, I would have never thought about that.
08-17-2006, 12:17 PM
wow! there are a lot of comments :)
thanks Ramona, Suzanne, kandy, une artiste, hannah,DK and La.. :)
08-17-2006, 01:35 PM
I liked the ballet dancer :) very romantic.
08-17-2006, 01:41 PM
The ballet dancer drawing is very beautiful :)
08-17-2006, 06:23 PM
aw it's beautiful! so soft with the blue paper and all
08-17-2006, 07:08 PM
Thanks Victoria, Maiii and Justine :D
08-17-2006, 07:11 PM
That is a very interesting drawing ,that blue "thing" creates a nice atmosphere ,Or at least in my opinion ...anyway be sure of this ..is looking awsome :P
08-18-2006, 11:20 AM
Thanks for comments.
08-19-2006, 07:01 AM
oh that looks wonderful!
the blue paper effect esp.!
08-19-2006, 05:45 PM
Thanks everyone :)
I just start another drawing.. hope to poste it tomorrow :)
08-19-2006, 07:08 PM
I like your last drawing: color artwork is very nice too! I like the way you used the white, it gives realism and a good definition. The model is beautiful too (Russian girl?)
08-19-2006, 09:19 PM
The ballet dancer is beautiful. The blue tinge is so dreamy...really nice.
08-20-2006, 09:00 AM
Thanks Coralay and Paubey...
Yes, she' s a russian model :) .
Well, this is another portrait of my beloved Robbie lol.
It's my second attempt with charcoal (the first was a November..ehehe it's a long time ago). This time I used a soft paper... it's not perfect but it was very funny to draw :)
08-20-2006, 12:22 PM
The eye's look amazing, i'm impressed, you captured so much detail in the eye's with charcoal and this is you're second try with charcoal :shock:
08-20-2006, 01:47 PM
That's pretty nice, the eyes are great and nice idea with the book. Seems you got the hang of coal :)
08-20-2006, 02:08 PM
I like the pic you chose to draw of him. I really like the drawing, you're good with coal!
08-20-2006, 07:19 PM
* Thanks dk.. you're too kind ;)
* Thanks Zindy :) ... well, I still have some problems with the skin but I hope to get better :)
* Thanks Ramona :)
08-22-2006, 01:42 AM
you really like to draw him don't you x]
this is a great ref pic and you did a great job for only a 2nd attempt with charcoal! :)
08-22-2006, 03:37 AM
I agree with zindy about the eyes really good as your second attempt with charcoal.
08-22-2006, 10:55 AM
That is the best ref pic! The expression is so great :)
08-22-2006, 07:07 PM
Thanks everyone :)
Yes, I really like to draw him... ehehe i have a lot of beautiful photo reference... :D
Yesterday I ruined two portraits... it was a very bad day :(
08-29-2006, 11:15 AM
Hey, that's a very good one: I like the way you did his eyes and that's a very original portrait, very expressive (I thought that his look looks a bit like eminem's on this picture, mad eyes...) Good job!
08-30-2006, 08:18 AM
That's pretty nice, the eyes are great and nice idea with the book. :D
09-07-2006, 06:30 PM
Hi all :)
The last week I had some problems... mostly fever and backache. I couldn't draw... really. Two days ago I started a new portait.. well, It's only the first step but that's something.
That's the photo ref..
and that's the first step of my draw
she's Melanie C... do you remember her?
I never listen the spice girls music... but I love her solo albums (the last one is fab). :)
09-08-2006, 12:28 PM
looking really good so far. Ive never seen her look so pretty
09-08-2006, 03:55 PM
looks great so for especially the eyes :)
09-08-2006, 03:57 PM
That really looks good so far. I'm looking forward to see more..!
i bet its gonna look great when finished
09-08-2006, 07:41 PM
Thanks Lea. Yes, I think that Melanie is more beautiful now than 5 or 6 years ago.
Thanks Mona :)
Multumesc Sena ;)
eheh thanks Ramona.. I hope to not ruin the draw :P
Thanks Dina :)
09-09-2006, 10:53 AM
I think this starting out really really well, I don't know exactly why but it looks really delicate and beautiful :)
09-09-2006, 02:37 PM
Her eyes and her smile are very well done, but be careful on her nose especially the shading:)
09-12-2006, 12:55 PM
Thanks everybody :)
and a special thanks to glemz.. I changed the nose a bit.. hope it's turned ok :)
Well, that's the final portrait
It's very small.. 15 x 16,5 cm (Fabriano smooth paper, 3h, 2b).
09-12-2006, 04:38 PM
your drawing is looking very good, beautifull eye's. it's just a bit light at the bottem but that might be just the scan :)
09-12-2006, 04:49 PM
Nice drawing, I like the beautiful eyes, too.
09-12-2006, 04:50 PM
Melanie C is looking great,especialy her eyes ,but Dave is right ,the botom drawing is a little bit lighter then the rest ,her smile is nice too ...
Multumesc Sena ;)
huh???this is the secont time i see you write in romanian?how do you know??i like your melanie c drawing !really amazinc.
Multumesc Sena ;)
09-12-2006, 05:11 PM
Your drawing is really good and looks a lot like her. Just the hair look a bit unfinished to me...
09-12-2006, 10:28 PM
The eyes are really beautiful ;)
09-12-2006, 10:37 PM
the eyes on the portrait are really nice! i love it :)
09-13-2006, 07:24 PM
Thanks everyone for the nice comments :) .. I really appreciated them.
The hair it's a bit strange.. I tried a new effect but the result isn't so good :( .
Sena I know some words in Romanian because my ex is from Bucarest :)
09-18-2006, 07:21 PM
Hi all.. I just started a new portrait with C.P. ..
It's only the first step..
I took a photo with my mobile phone so the quality isn't so great.
That's all :D
09-18-2006, 10:01 PM
woh ur mobile got a good camera =P the drawing is not so good seeable but from what i can see its a great start
09-18-2006, 10:20 PM
WOooooOW...i love the ....blue pencil and the pink one ,theyare soo cool ...:):):)(sorry ,in the kiding mood now )
Well as far as i can see ,thats a great idee u starte with ,is it from your imagination ?
Next time zoom it a little will u !?!;):D
i love the eyes (eye)...but i alsaw request a bigger version pretty pls looks amazing...who does it represnet?
09-19-2006, 05:35 PM
hihi I've drawn that ref too, but not in colour :) It looks great, she has one of the most beautiful eyes ever!
09-19-2006, 06:02 PM
Wow, it looks very nice so far, the eye seems very well done (a little mangaesque, that's great). Is it the girl in the tv serie "Gilmore girls"? I like the style and colors.
09-19-2006, 07:51 PM
* thanks sweet :) . eheeh I'm a lazy girl and i didn't use the scanner.. ehehe take a photo it's so fast :-P
* thanks sandu :) . No, i can't draw from my immagination.. well, I can draw some cartoons but not portrait.
* thanks sena :)
* ehehe maiii this photo ref it's so beautiful and funny to draw :)
* Right Paubey.. she's Alexis (I can't remember her real surname) -> rory gilmore. I love the telefilm, it's so funny :P
And for everyone.. the big version lol.
well, in reality it's the second step of my work in progress... i started her dress. Hope to not make some mistakes (i'm not so good with cp :( ).
09-19-2006, 09:55 PM
Well as far as i can see u your work in coloured pencil its awosme ,Really Silvana ,U're wip is really great .And good to see in bigger format too
Keep up the good work and keep us updated ;p
09-20-2006, 02:14 AM
omg i love the fingers! x]
and i was gonna say, Maiii drew that too! :-P
09-24-2006, 03:33 PM
eheh thanks girls :)
Youppie :p I finished it!
The portrait is not perfect (I think that the background isn't so good) but I'm happy about the hair.. the photo ref is not clear, I had invented it.
really amazing silvana!!i especially love the face couldn`t say 100% alexis but it`s beautifull and i kinda don`t like the shadingon the arms...of course i`m not an expert on shading so i just say my opinion but it`s a wonderfull drawing!
09-24-2006, 04:01 PM
I agree with Sena on the shading, it's a bit too blue I think...but I can definitely recognize her :) I love the hand holding the flower and her eye, very nicely done! Also the lips and hair look nice ;)
And by the way... Reese Witherspoon was in Walk the line, the Legally Blonde films and Sweet home Alabama...dunno if that helps you remembering her ;) Thanks for the comment anyway :)
09-24-2006, 04:45 PM
Thanks Sena and snow for the nice comments :)
Well, that's the photo ref.
the shadows are difficult to draw cuz there is a lot of contrast... black shadows and pale skin.
Any advice for the next time? How can I do with c.p. a shading like these? :)
09-24-2006, 07:23 PM
Great job with the drawing, esp the dress :)
09-24-2006, 08:20 PM
I like it and think its really lovely drawn, I especialy think you did really well drawing the dress :)
i was wrong abou how recognisable it is...it looks exactly like the ref pic but it doesn`t look like her in the ref picture imo:)) that`s a very crapy picture i mean it`s hard to draw from and i son`t think anyone coulda done it better :)
09-25-2006, 07:26 PM
Man.. thanks for the comment. I'm happy to read your impressions.. you're such a wonderful artist :)
Maiii thanks, thanks and thanks again.. you're always kind with me ;)
hehe right sena.. it's a "strange" photo.. she don't seems Alexis b. Maybe it's the pose.. I don't know :P . Thanks again for your comments.. I appreciated them :)
09-26-2006, 07:04 AM
I like your new color drawing. You can tell its her, so thats good. The shirt came out Very nice. I think the skin color is a bit too light though. But good drawing !
09-26-2006, 10:41 AM
what a cute one ! Me likes it. Her left hand turned out extra well !
09-26-2006, 03:35 PM
jus totally fabulous
09-27-2006, 06:58 PM
Mauricio yes, you're right.. "my" Alexis is too pale. I'm not too confidential with c. p. so i tend to use a small pressure when I do the skin.. eheh i must work on it in the future :P
Thanks for the nice comment Helena :)
Thanks Kandy :)
09-28-2006, 06:49 PM
Beautiful! I really like the way you drew her dress and the pose with the flower: I also like the artistic use of color you made, lots of style!
09-28-2006, 06:58 PM
Thanks Paubey :oops:
This is a new one (another draw made with cp... :D .. ehehe maybe lately I'm a bit repetitive)
She's a Japanese singer.. her name is Ayumi Hamasaki ;) . I never listen to her songs.. I only wanted to draw an oriental girl :smile:
09-28-2006, 07:22 PM
Who ,...what the ....I missed two drawings form U ....and two great coloured drawings .in the first one ,the dress is very well done ,all that detailes and the pose is really great.
I also like the second drawing where u made thoese awsome nailes ..thoese are looking very good along with the redish hair and lips .....
Nice work Silvana
09-29-2006, 03:46 AM
i think it looks great! you shaded the fingers esp. well :)
09-29-2006, 08:51 AM
Very beautiful, i think you've drawn the fingers rather well and the lips are lovely :)
09-29-2006, 09:48 AM
I absolutely love this one too! Your color drawings are really original with great details (wow, the nails!)
its so beautiful i liked the most her fingers and lips
09-29-2006, 09:24 PM
Thanks everyone :)
I really appreciate your comments :) .. they are a spur to make other drawings with colored pencils.. :)
10-04-2006, 07:55 PM
Just a new wip :)
She's Ziyi Zhang.. the neck seems too small but it's ok (you'll see it with the hair ;) )
10-04-2006, 08:00 PM
Great so far, I really like the eyes!
10-04-2006, 08:17 PM
I like it. So far it looks great.
10-05-2006, 12:37 AM
def. looks like her so far!
looks like her so far and oi love the eyes :D can`t wait too see it finished
10-05-2006, 08:10 AM
Looks very good so far, I love the lips and the way you shade skin.
10-06-2006, 07:06 PM
many thanks :p
10-07-2006, 11:06 AM

She's Catherine Zeta-Jones..

10-07-2006, 01:17 PM
beautiful! very nice, the colored paper:-D
its very niceee amazing sken tone
10-07-2006, 05:08 PM
That's so beautiful! Love the colours :) it looks so much like her. Great job
10-07-2006, 05:27 PM
you have suceeded where i failed miserably, i just cannot draw this woman, your picture is beautiful!
10-07-2006, 05:42 PM
Yep ,Catherine looks amazing ,u did an awsome job with the colours ...
just one thing ...her ear is a little bit rushed ,dont u think ? ....but nevertheless ,great Job Silvana;)
10-07-2006, 10:08 PM
aw thats a very reckinisable drawing and colour portrait! i really like it and it looks very realistic :) well done!!
10-07-2006, 11:47 PM
the shading is amazing! nice job!
10-08-2006, 12:05 AM
wow, that's a great portrait. You've done a great job :D
10-08-2006, 10:08 AM
I absolutely love it, you're great with color!
10-08-2006, 09:37 PM

10-09-2006, 07:43 PM
* jeanine thanks. I love draw on colored paper, it's very funny :)
* dina thanks ;)
* thanks ramona
* Lea i don't know why but Catherine z j it's difficult to draw. You must know, this is the second time that I draw her.. the first portrait was terrible. I throw it away.
* thanks sandu!. You're right, the ear isn't so good.. it's difficult to make the details with pastel and my paper was too small (a4..). Maybe it's the time to try a3 :)
* thanks kandy
* thanks hadieh
* thanks vany ;)
* thanks paubey, you're too kind with me.
* thanks klein
* thanks dk, I really appreciated your comment
10-09-2006, 07:52 PM
I think your new drawing is very beautiful. It looks very soft, almost like a painting :)
10-10-2006, 12:02 AM
Your new color drawing is really nice. The colors are very well put together.
10-13-2006, 06:58 PM
A new one...
This time I drew Katie Holmes, I hope she's still recognizable. The face is very very small.. 6 x 7 cm :p .
I had an hard time with the skin's color, I used the eraser a lot :( .
I'm not too happy about this drawing but it's done so I can't do anything about it. :(
10-13-2006, 07:44 PM
wow thats great:D it really looks like her :D
Maybe not 100% recognizable, but I do see it's her :) I think you've done a great job. I agree with you btw, it's hard to find the right color for the skin :/
10-14-2006, 01:26 AM
I like this one you've done a great job with the skin tone and there's something striking about her eyes.
great work :)
10-14-2006, 05:34 AM
wow! her face is so realistic! i love it!
10-14-2006, 11:24 AM
Look good, i think you did a very nice job on the skin colour. :)
10-14-2006, 11:36 AM
i like that drawing!! the colours you used look really good!! :)
10-14-2006, 11:36 AM
When I saw this drawing I was thinking it had a similarity to Katie but I see what you mean with it not looking completely like her. When you draw that small it’s hard to get the likeness completely, as only a little dot can change the appearance completely.
I like the drawing though and I think you did well with the skin colours and the hair is really nice.
Did she really have blue eyes on the reference or did you just add it?
One thing that is confusing my eye is the way the drawing is cropped, I think it’s too much grey to the left, steals something in the picture I think. I think I would have cropped it less grey and more in the background instead to give it another perspective. Anyway, guess that is just a choice and a matter of liking :)
Anyway, super drawing, you did good :)
10-14-2006, 07:49 PM
Silvana ,the drawing looks really good ,the colours u obtained are very well chosen ,her hair is very detailed and her skin looks great .As for the face ,yes its very small but U made it very well though she doesnt look perfect like "Tom Cruise's chosen one "
And u should be happy ,the piece looks very good.
great job its fabulous ;)
the katie holmes drawing looks great. The face I like most, very well drawn ;)
10-15-2006, 09:33 AM
She is less recognizable than your Catherine Zeta Jones, but I think you did a great job with the colors and especially the skin tones!
your drawing kinda reminds me of Irene`s drawings looks really greith silvy :hug:
10-15-2006, 04:01 PM

* thanks Mona
* thanks kate :)
* thanks for the nice comment Hadieh

* thanks a lot Lisa
* Zindy :D . I post the photo ref.. in the pics her eyes aren't so blue eheh i changed them a bit.. blue eyes are so pretty :P .
Thanks for your comment, i really appreciated it

10-16-2006, 02:31 AM
the ref pic doesnt really look like her, so i dont blame the drawing for not looking like her prerfectly!
10-19-2006, 07:36 PM
.. just a work in progress (1st step)
10-19-2006, 08:56 PM
Well the man from your drawing reminds me of 3 guys .
1. Christoper Lee (aka Saruman from Lord of the rings )
2. Dennis Hoper (actor)
3. Einstein ( yeah the smart dude :D)
Hope one of them is right ,cause from your first Wip i can tell this one will look awsome ....I like how u made his brow and his half mustache ,and the eyes of course :D
Keep Up the good work ...
10-19-2006, 10:02 PM
The eyes are so impressive.. it's beautiful :) Can't wait to see more
10-19-2006, 10:33 PM
I think it's Einstein too Sandu! totally and utterly awesome so far and what a good reference!!
10-19-2006, 10:41 PM
I think it´s Einstein. ;)
10-19-2006, 11:05 PM
.. just a work in progress (1st step)
It is look wondful
10-20-2006, 01:49 AM
is it Al Pacino? the eyes are greatt!
10-20-2006, 09:42 AM
wow looks fab so far :D cant wait to see it finished :)
wow the wip looks soooo great
the eyes are so realistic
I´m curious how it will look when you finish..
but I think it will become fantastic :)
10-20-2006, 04:12 PM
i TAKE IT BACK!! NOT EINSTEIN, its Al Pacino!! I just saw the reference on a site and recognised him imediately from your drawing!! you got it picture perfect so far!!
10-20-2006, 06:11 PM
Your new WIP looks great! The eyes are just WOW really! And his mustache looks very nice too :) Very well done so far ;)
10-20-2006, 08:02 PM
ohh thanks everyone :oops:
and... trrr (suspense eheh)...
the winners are....
Hadieh and Lea :D .
He's Al Pacino, I post the photo ref
And thanks again, your comments mean so much to me :p
10-28-2006, 08:12 AM
I finished the Al Pacino's portrait :)
pencils: 6h, 4h, h and 4b.
I had a lot of problems with this draw.. mostly due to high contrast of the photo ref (for ex the neck is too black).
I brighted the original photo with photoshop so i can see more details..
however that's the result.
I hope you like it :)
10-28-2006, 12:16 PM
Great great drawing, you did really really good. I think you made the eyes even more expressive.
wow really great drawing, looks exactly like him, and zindy is right you made the eyes more expressive.
10-28-2006, 08:50 PM
Great drawing! Looks exactly like him, and I agree with Vio and Zindy, there's much more expression showing through your drawing than the expression showing through the original picture.
10-29-2006, 09:49 AM
wow, thats amazing! the eyes are better than in the ref pic! it looks JUST like him! i love the little white hairs! great job! :D
oh waw he looks really greith i love the hair and eyes 100% al pacino
10-29-2006, 10:18 AM
aww wow that is a good drawing i love it :D well done :D
10-29-2006, 06:37 PM
Good idea to draw him. The result and expression are stunning!
10-29-2006, 06:47 PM
Wow, i very much like you drawing, especialy the eye's are very expressive :)
10-30-2006, 07:04 AM
I'm sorry, yesterday my internet connection suddenly stopped working so I couldn't say thank you for the comments. :-(
However now I can :D
Thanks everyone for the nice comments.. you're too kind with me ;) . There are some problems in this draw.. for example an eyes is smaller than the other.. but I'm happy to read that you like it anyway.
thanks again :)
10-30-2006, 09:26 AM
awesoooooooooome! no one ever draws him but i think they should?! you have done a fab job, very recognisable!!
11-10-2006, 08:12 AM
Good morning :)
This is a "fast" drawing.. I made it in an hour. The subject is a friend of mine and the photo ref isn't perfect.. too dark, not much contrast.. ecc ecc.
Well, I draw my last "naked man" 4 or 5 years ago.. and i rarely use ink. I'm not good at it.. i know.. but I had fun :D
11-10-2006, 12:22 PM
I think you new drawing of the leaking guy, i just had to say that, sorry, is very well drawn, even without a good ref you do so well, and the medium... i like it :)
11-11-2006, 07:20 PM
Thanks DK.. too kind :p
11-12-2006, 05:09 AM
Wow thats good!! DId u use charcol?
11-12-2006, 10:11 AM
hahahaha, laughing at daves comment, he does look like hes having a pee!! and hes very proud about it! very good though! i like your style, you have avery good understanding of anatomy!
11-12-2006, 07:38 PM
and no, I used ink ;)
Thanks Lea :)
11-13-2006, 06:50 PM
oh woh i really admire people who can draw with ink, for me its one of the hardes madiums. and u did it so well! the proportions and the shading are great! keep it up, chick! ^^
11-13-2006, 11:42 PM
I like it alot...I admire you can work with ink......:D
11-14-2006, 08:03 PM
Thanks everyone :D
I have a new draw...
11-14-2006, 09:48 PM
It looks great. I like the idea of the body in black and white and only the rose in colour
11-14-2006, 10:22 PM
Thats great :D.
I lurrve it. :P
11-15-2006, 12:50 AM
that looks great! i like how you did the flower esp.! :)
11-15-2006, 09:17 AM
Wow, that's so pretty. I like how the rose is the only thing in colour. It makes it more interesting, and stands out. The shading is also really well done, especially where the shadow of the rose is. The hand looks very good too. :D
11-16-2006, 07:49 PM
Thanks very much Sinzi, Jade, Hadieh and Hanna :D
11-16-2006, 08:31 PM
Your blue rose, came out very nice. Good contrast, makes it stand out, its very nicely drawn.
11-17-2006, 10:04 AM
wow it is brilliant hun.:D
OHHH WOOW it looks so amazing. I love that it is a blue rose... so beautiful
really love it :)
11-17-2006, 10:39 PM
I love the mix of the blue tones of the rose with the pencil shading: the shadow is great too!
11-18-2006, 04:26 PM
beautiful colour choise, is the first thing that came to mind when i looked at your latest drawing :) beautyfull colours indeed :D
11-19-2006, 11:20 AM
That is so beautiful, I really love your new drawing :) The contrast (b&w / colour) makes the drawing so special, and you drew both the body and rose so nicely!
Yet the rose is my favourite ;) It truly is a gorgeous drawing!
11-25-2006, 08:01 AM
Hi all and thanks for the nice comments ;)
Yesterday I finished a new draw... I know, maybe it's a bit too "white" (lack of contrast) but it's my choice.. I wanted a soft look :p
4b (eyes... sigh :( .. they are too dark)
I had a lot of troubles with my scanner.. the draw - in reality - is a lot better.. sorry :(
11-25-2006, 10:14 AM
haha i think its cute! even if it is so light! good job! :D
11-25-2006, 11:12 AM
It is light, but very soft indeed ;) beautiful. :)
11-25-2006, 11:48 AM
i think its VERY cute! =D i lovethe softness it kinda goes with the history of the picture :)
11-25-2006, 01:55 PM
Well, I think your drawings speak to me. I think your style really speaks freedom and I think you've got a good imagination and a good eye for unique poses. You have that thing like that you're sitting in a park in a very big city, drawing, and when people passes by, they really are pulled to your drawings, and stand still for a moment to admire how you construct your drawings. Very natural style indeed :D ;)
11-25-2006, 01:57 PM
i've got a big smile on my face after looking at this, gorgeous
11-25-2006, 04:49 PM
I like it a lot: the second girl looks like Kylie Minogue!
11-26-2006, 08:15 AM
I like it a lot: the second girl looks like Kylie Minogue!

11-26-2006, 12:52 PM
i agree on kylie :D it's a really lovely drawing!! very soft and nice!! well-done!!
11-26-2006, 06:39 PM
ohh thanks everyone :) . Your comments mean a lot for me ;)
Yes, I used a kilie's photo but I changed some details. Thanks again :D
11-26-2006, 07:29 PM
I think yu menaged the soft look very well, the first thought i had about the drawing was " it looks like they are kissing on a beach and the sun is setting behind them" very nice :)
12-12-2006, 08:08 PM
I have two new portraits..
The first draw isn't good.. there are a lot of mistakes.. :(
the second one is a young woman...
12-12-2006, 08:11 PM
it's a real good work i love your style!
12-12-2006, 11:54 PM
The first looks familiar--hmm, he kind of looks like Jean Reno?? i dunno, but im pretty sure the 2nd is Ziyi Zhang! they look really good! her eyes and lips are esp. good! :D
12-13-2006, 07:47 PM
Thanks Elo :)
Hadieh no.. he is a friend of mine :) . However the girl is Ziyi Zhang :)
Thanks a lot
12-13-2006, 08:44 PM
They look nice, great work! ;)
12-13-2006, 11:36 PM
They look awsome! :D
12-14-2006, 06:15 AM
I think the portrait of Ziyi Zhang looks so nice, so soft, so lovely, a beautiful girl and an even more beautiful drawing :)
12-14-2006, 07:33 PM
Wow. Great job. It's so net, original. You really have a unique style.
12-15-2006, 11:01 AM
Wow, I love your 2 portraits especially the one of Zhiyi Zhang: the skin looks very bright and the lips are so realistic!
12-15-2006, 11:19 AM
I love Ziyi Zhang lips and eyes they're amazing they look realistic and they stand out, good work.
Alexia:D :D :D
12-15-2006, 12:10 PM
I really like how you did her eyes on the second portrait. They are beautifully drawn, and very dark which makes them stand out.:D
12-25-2006, 10:20 AM
Hi all and Merry Christmas :D
I hope you have a nice day :D :D
I have a new wip.. well, it's just the first step.
I hope it's all ok with proportions and skin tone :o
