White Lily by Ameryn White Lily by Ameryn
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! :)

First, I must say that it's a really good drawing - from both aspects of technique and theme.
I like the way the background shifts from black to white, blending with the flower on the right side. I also like the details on the petals.
I would like to note that the shading on the closest to us petal looks a little odd, since it's a little too straight in my opinion, and not fitting the form of shape of the petal. However, this is not a really relevant part and overall the drawing looks great.
Maybe making some parts a little blurred might have added a nice effect of focus, but it's more a matter of personal taste, I believe.

Good job!

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.

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:

The light effect is really good in this one! The flower is also very nicely drawn, I can feel the texture in the center of the pedals! :thumbsup:

Just my opinion though: I think the stigma/style of the flower in the middle is a little too dark...
