Try to be unique, just like everybody else.


I experimented with foreshortening and facial expression in this piece to create a photograph-like mood, as if my friend who was posing for me was actually posing for an awkward photo. The figure's facial expression is integral to the piece, I think, because without that dream-like giggly smile, this piece would be a rather ordinary portrait. I was also opting for a clash between the black/white medium (which tends to create a more stern atmosphere) and the playful facial expression.

There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or

of all the drawings, i just find this one very .. attractive! its beautiful! and a job well done! please keep on drawing :)

Whoa! You have created an awesome FEEL for the drawing, well done! (:

"life is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you're going to get"

this is great, you made it to where the viewer can feel the movement in the picture...it is still but there is an action that is definitely noticeable and present...wonderful!
