Waiting by shimoda7 Waiting by shimoda7
It's kinda hard to write a description for this drawing since it represents a lot of different, mostly contradictory concepts.
The basic idea is about this person missing out on something that is happening all around her, while she's standing there waiting for it to happen. However, we don't know how she's gotten there and why she choses to stay there, if she's been given a choice at all.

- Conté pencil, Ivory Black pencil and graphite powder on paper
- 42 x 30 cm (A3)
- about 30 hours

Thanks for looking, and hope you like it.

Hi....this one has been my long time fav. I just wanted to know if you can permit me to use it on my blog.
The sketch perfectly depicts the mood I want to convey. I will share the blog link with you or any other details you may want.

In case, you are not in for it, I can perfectly understand. No issues.

Thanks!

no reason or need to explain. it is self-explanatory. i chose this particular piece because it is more than an excellent rendering (all of your work is stunning). It is a surreal marvel!

...and in the midst of her freedom, she looks, with tears running down her cheek, the one thing she ever wanted... the only thing she could not have... If she could, she would, take all the freedom around her, and and give it away, just to open that window of desire.

What she desires is up to your imagination.
