Lament for a frozen flower by dloraas Lament for a frozen flower by dloraas
A new charcoal-drawing after one of lillona9999's photos ([link])

I've done so many mistakes a long the way that i almost gave up on it several times, and i partly still wish i did, but i just didn't feel like redoing the entire thing... in the end i've manage to cover up/redo most of my mistakes anyway(although some is still showing :/ )

Ref. : [link]
So... many, many thanks to her for letting me use this wonderful photo as reference - its well deserved of it's DD :D

size is :45x57cm
material used is: faber-castell charcoal-pencils, vine charcoal, charcoal-powder, brushes, whool, paper for blending; kneaded eraser, blu-tac, tuff stuff eraser-pen, a stylus for intending, and a white charcoal-pencil for some highlights (but it did'n give that good a result), a tea strainer and a lot of coffee :D
Time used: not the slightest idea...

Beautiful, stunningly detailed and intricate... but most importantly, this has emotion and real artistry to it. Part of that is the reference photo (which doesn't seem to be there any more - at least the link doesn't seem to work?), but I think you've done a brilliant job capturing the mood and feel in her expression and in every thread of her dress. 

I think this is breathtaking; congratulations on a very well-deserved DD! :)

How did you make many mistakes? Seems like you corrected them all because the drawing came out very nice. I suppose all good artists criticize their work the harshest in order for them to keep improving. I know I do. Great work.

Well... I did some really bad proportional mistakes and something with the face if i recall corectly. And the paper i use tendens to be on the unforgiving side so it Can be quite demotivating. Managed to fix most of it :) i am still not satisfied with the skirt though. But all in all it is one of the two drawings i'm most satisfied with in the end. 
Thank you :)

It is a gorgeous piece. I only wish I could draw .... am told I used to have some talent as a child .... just no real interest at that time ...

dloraas Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014
Thank you :) well.. if you have a real interest now theres nothing stopping you from learning.. everybody can learn to draw. find some good tutorials etc online and then its just about practising.. and having fun along the way :D

(There's a load of good tutorials here on dA, www.proko.com has some good ones on figure/portraits and youtube has tutorials in the thousands... )
