- Borrowed Wings -
Finally done with this drawing, been working on it the past 3 weeks. I don’t know how many hours it took but it took a looong time. I really enjoyed making this drawing, been a long time since I enjoyed a drawing this much.
It’s made after a photo of myself posing like this and with the dress on. I think this dress is really good to use in drawings, has a dark feel to it while still being sweet plus it’s so much fun to draw it. Kind of suits this drawing a lot as it is about being “good” and “bad”. I am not sure I can explain what I intended with this drawing completely. My idea when I started it was how you have a certain idea of who you are, your morals, the things you would do and not do. Some times you overstep these boundaries. I am not talking major badness… just how sometimes you feel like you loose your innocence somehow and with that your potential “wings”. Being brought up in a strict religion it has given me many thoughts about what is wrong and what is right. What might seem like nothing to some might mean loosing wings in my world. So when you make a wrong step you have to go back and borrow wings, repairing somehow, hoping that it will be alright eventually.
Not sure if it makes any sense but I hope it does, if not I hope the drawing can speak for itself.
Made with soft coal.
