I really felt like drawing a beautiful flower.

Size: only A5
Media: Graphite, rather rough surface sketching paper
Time: about 10hrs (very quick for me, haha!)

Really enjoyed drawing this! :)

Wow, I love your attention to detail in this drawing! You seem to do really well balancing out light and dark to give it more texture in key places. I'm a little curious--why does it cut off into white at the right side of the picture? It doesn't necessarily make it look bad, though I personally think it might look a little better if you either completely finished that last petal or cut off the picture before it fades into white. Boy, I wish I could get to that level of realistic drawing like you've done here. Maybe someday.

Ooh I like the inclusion of the texture on the petals. Would have been nice to see that same small detail applied to the stamens.

BEAUTIFUL lily! :D I love that flower.

Great job. I drew one myself back in the days but it isn't nearly as perfect as this one of yours. You can view it here if you like. [link]

Lovely work. :heart:
