Wonderful idea, great composition, love the red thread!
how do you draw this
Sophia may need a shrink , but what to do when she´s smarter than any of them
Not so hard to imagine, i've never met a shrink even marginally more insightful than the average person of acceptable intelligence.
great concept! How did you fix the charcoal to the canvas?
Possibly my favorite piece in your gallery.
I love how it looks like an old piece if contemporary artists came in and suffocated the women with jagged edges and a bit of color. This is fabulous. Each section is drawn beautifully (especially the folds in her clothing) and has a good amount of value.
I love it.
I love it.
Beautiful piece, great use of the medium, and nice take on the Old Masters style. I assume "Sophia" is a reference to Wisdom in the Greek, gnostic, and Christian traditions. The pyramid/triangle kinda bolsters this reading, although the hands and string are a bit of a mystery to me. I do like the mysterious quality in this piece, however. Nice work.
Thank you! Yes, your assumption is correct Shortly, the string represents wisdom that she weaves and the hands are people who crave it, while the triangle stands for the 'fixed' aspect of reason (reflected by math, sciences etc.).
This is gorgeous! I can't believe that was your 2nd go and it came out superbly. The detail and shading is really incredible. Excellent drawing!!
It was only second time to use charcoal on canvas, i had some experience with charcoal on paper before. Thank you!
This is very similar to the three furies. Love it!
Thanks, but don't you mean the three fates instead furies(i assume it's because of the thread)?
Gorgeous concept wit those hands... Excellent drawing!
What a gorgeous piece of Art! My compliments to you!
Oh, am fost atat de incantat de minunatele tale lucrari incat nu am observat ca sunt "made in Romania" Felicitari Laura, sunt minunate!
M-am obisnuit ca pe deviantart toata lumea sa vorbeasca in engleza, dar daca vad pe cineva cu nume romanesc de obicei raspund in romana . Multumesc, din nou
Cu mare placere! Am vazut ca iti place foarte mult si arta digitala. Nu am incercat niciodata desi admir mult lucrarile digitale... inca imi aduc aminte tentativele mele rusinoase de a desena cu un mouse acum multi ani Poate cu un tablet ar fi altceva.
Si eu am inceput cu mouse-ul, dar nu are rost, mai mult te enervezi. Ai putea sa incerci sa-ti iei o tableta, modelul pe care il am eu se cheama Wacom Bamboo, e destul de ieftina, cred ca in jur de 70-80 euro, si merita fiecare cent.
Merci mult pentru info! Chiar o sa ma interesez zilele astea. Am vazut multe lucrari digitale deosebite si de mult ma gandesc sa incerc o tableta. Avand in vedere ca o cutie de creioane colorate Faber Castelle costa in jur de 200 euro (buna calitate nu le justifica pretul), tableta are un pret mai mult decat rezonabil.
Awesome. I'm speechless.
really great, did yu find this technique challenging
