Fun. I like the curvy linework and shape relationships...and all that other artsy talk. Most professionalistic.

She looks like someone... old style photography probably. It is very fluid and beautiful. Very inspiring.

AG said...

awesomeness!

do you draw in pencil and tone it in photoshop or do you use brown pencil?

great shading - as usual!

Misty Mawn said...

Very nice! I love her face!

COMPT said...

nice work, and shading, i need to learn to do that, does the woman represent anyone?

Cory said...

It was all drawn with just a regular old pencil on a kind of dull yellow/tan printmaking paper with the color added in photoshop.

And to answer the other question, she's not really anyone, just someone who likes the violin.

M. Spalding said...

I adore that expression. You've studied music or musicians! Perfect.

Joe said...

The Tart said...
