Autumn by Doberlady Autumn by Doberlady
Her Highness Autumn, beautiful yet life ending.
Reminds us nothing lasts forever, everything passes... and decays.
Just another note to my visual requiem...

-+-+-+-+-

used just pencils and kneadable eraser, also helped myself with a white gel-pen to do her eyes. Wanted them a little eerie and expressionless, she is just a specter after all.

Aw you're sweet, but I'm also in the progress of developing my style and technique. Although I'm flattered you think so!

I understand what you say, and I think it is good, none should stop developing, only arrogant people think they have learned everything. There is alway room for practice and trying to best yourself. :aww:

Exactly my sentence! I use to say, that the day I stop developing my art, my art would be dead.
Also I've put the more photorealistic drawing behind me and started to try to find my own style. So that's my goal right now, to get better at drawing from my own mind instead of reference photos.
And I think it was good that you said "to best yourself" cause it is really just yourself that you can compete with^^

I agree, some realism is good, as a base, but photorealism is not what I am after. I think the mood, the atmosphere is more important, the feel of the drawing. There are lots of people here on DA copying photographs of celebrities in pencil... For me it is not really creative, not really artistic. Great technique and craft, but not really artistic. I like works like your "Paranoia" because I can feel the claustrophobic mood in this picture.

Yes, I think realism is cool when you do your own thing out of it. But I've seen way too many copies of celeb.portraits. Like you said it's good practice but not artistic, unless you make it your own idea or something:P
I agree the feeling is much more important, although I think it's best when it comes with good technique as well^^
And thank you for the compliment:aww:

I am glad you like it. Though it looks different after scanning, and it bothers me. I cannot pin point the difference...
I think I need a new scanner.
