Monique by shimoda7 Monique by shimoda7
this is a drawing i did yesterday, using two very different styles and materials. it was fun to do and i like the way it came out, thanks to Monique who was kind enough to give me permission to use her photo as reference.

- colored pencil and charcoal on paper
- 20 x 30 cm
- about 8 hours

hope you like it

Monique by ~shimoda7. Once again Henrik made an inspiring and amazing piece of art. Usage of different mediums and styles on same piece of paper and doing it this well, can be only achieved by a real artist. Congratulations! ( Suggested by NosferatuGFX and Featured by Thunderstatement )

Lovely and delicate emotional expression! I love the long strokes of charcoal, too, like it's raining :D
And the color draws your attention away from her hand, which I think you had a bit of trouble rendering for it doesn't "read" as well as the rest of her :)
Just beautiful !

Thanks. As for the metal, I did some research about the texture and then tried to create the effect using high contrasts. Glad it shows.
