Another easy one, in the sense that the composition came together in one try and the inking went fast.
"My loving heart, lost in the dark" has always been a lyric that particularly struck me...the idea that when your heart is lost, your soul kind of goes with it. I always pictured someone being washed up on a lost shore in the rain, so when I was coming up with ideas, that was where I started. It sort of reminded me of that painting of Venus on a seashell, being blown to shore...I thought, what if she got lost on the way? What if Love herself became lost at sea, and forgot who she was?
I ended up taking ComArtist and NyjahA's advice and made the two children at the bottom Native American...it feels truer to the spirit of the song, which is what I'm trying to capture in the end.
My 0.05 pen started to give out on me about halfway through this piece, making it one of the harder ones to get done :/ . But overall I'm pleased...the concept was something I thought of months ago, and one I'd been looking forward to getting on paper.
My favourites metal singers From left to right : Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil, Simone Simons from Epica and Tarja Turunen, Ex-Nightwish I love their voices, personality and appearance... They are definitely my Metal Goddesses!
Speed portrait and looks like one xD Could have done better but it's ok for now. Perfectly matching title in my eyes. As one comment on youtube said it like I couldn't say it better: "He's got the look of both, predator and prey."
Polychromos "dark indigo" on A4 sketch block
You wanna hear something funny? I inkjet-printed it for a friend, and it actually looks better than the original drawing xD [SOLD]
Yay, it's finisheeeeeeed My creativity is kind of very back ... It took an eternity to scan it so that I could crop it properly -.-° But now it's doneee Sadly I can't offer you the original painting for sale, because I gave it away, but if you want a print, please let me know
