Group Info

Welcome to Beauty of Graphite. This group is dedicated to Graphite artists. All works here showcase the beauty of this medium.

:star:Hello, greetings to Beauty of Graphite, live today 10/24/2012.

This group however will be dedicated to artists that truely use Graphite as a means to express themselves. I want to see the emotion on the paper. Let your mind flow! All pieces in this group should showcase some sort of 'feeling' or be exquisite with technique. I want to know you truly feel your artwork, and truly are a 'Graphite Artist'. Anything goes as far as the 'subject' of the works in this group.

All skill levels are accepted here, but note that lower skill levels will be graded by that note appropriately.

Anyone is allowed to join! And remember, have fun!

YAY!  We have 200 members which means that we can now have our next contest.   Our Founder, :iconel-i-or: wanted our second contest to be called "Make Me a Demon".    

First, Second, and Third place entries will win a prize.  Prizes will be updated once the actual contest is about to commence.    

Here are some more details:

MAKE ME A DEMON
Your job is to create a Demon. Think of the scariest, most interesting, most whimsical demon and draw it. It can be Dragon-esque, Goblin like, whatever. Just make me the coolest thing outta hell you can think of.

Some ideas:
Dragons
Fae
Goblins
Wraiths
etc.

Here are some of :iconel-i-or:'s works to help with some ideas:
OLD Dragon concept 2010 by El-i-or the Embodiment of Darkness wip by El-i-or
OC Ari - Dark Form wip by El-i-or Algidus by El-i-or
After the Fall wip no.1 by El-i-or Face of Death wip no.1 by El-i-or
OC Ophion wip by El-i-or OC Vladimir Demon form wip by El-i-or
Demon 2 concept by El-i-or OLD Demon concept 2007 by El-i-or
Demon 1 concept by El-i-or OLD OC Pyrrhos Closeup by El-i-or

Mind you, the above are not all graphite, and some are wips, but hopefully they'll get your head churning. Keep posted, and get creative with it. :)

+ ANYONE WILLING TO DONATE 300+ :points: to the group here :iconxxmonkeytart: will become a Contributor no questions asked. Trying to make the group a SUPER GROUP. :)

Your Founder,
:iconel-i-or:
