Twilight cafeteria scene by craftymama2 Twilight cafeteria scene by craftymama2
This is a pencil sketch from the cafeteria scene in the movie Twilight. It took a lot longer than I expected it to when I started it. I kept getting distracted by Edward, lol. This is my first real attempt at a background. It looks like a really simple, easy one but it wasn't. Also for the record facial expressions are reeeeeeeelly tough to get right. I hope I did the characters/actors justice. I also hope you like it. ^_^

This is sketch is originally 9x12 inches & is for =witchi1976's Twilight fan art contest.

Finally I wanted to add that I was also inspired to do this sketch by this amazing sketch: [link] by ~hazzard7

You almost got me in tears on this one. You've caught the characters and evoked emotion out of me. Your background is fantastic. I love the blinds, how the light comes through and the trees are hinted from behind.

Then you got the chairs masterfully postioned, shine on chrome-kudos!

And...need I mention...there's Edward. I can see why you were distracted. All you need to do is cover him up to give you privacy while you work in the details you want.

Bottom line, this is one of my favorite scenes. Duh, almost every scene in Twilight is my favorite. Maybe that's why I've watched it every night for two weeks, non-stop.

The different expressions on the actor's faces, the detail level, & the emotion in this scene are the reasons it is one of my favorites also.

The chrome on the chairs was quite a challenge, lol. Due to the scale I drew the picture at I was having difficulty getting my eraser into the tiny areas I needed erased properly.

Ah Edward... yes, hehe. Eventually I did have to cover him up but not just because he was distracting me. I was afraid I would smudge him so I gently taped a piece of paper over him. Then I adjusted it to cover each area I worked on.

I also watch Twilight at least once a day... or more. XD

Tee-hee, I thought I was the only one. That's one addictive movie. Haven't found one that touched me just in the right place. Mystery, romance, sacrifice, action adventure, love and some more love, tortured sole, innocents, and innocents that are supposed to be the bad guy, but turns out to be sooooo good. Now how good is that? It's Edward Cullen...hehehe.

Let me stop here. I'll talk about this for days! Don't want to use up all the website space.

Wednesday nights are my night to go out & I usually end up down at a bar that is with in walking distance of where I live. In honor of yesterday being Robert Pattison's birthday I wore my Twilight t-shirt & some jeans plus a black baseball hat with a Twilight button pinned on it. My bar buddy's teased me all night but it was all in good fun. :)

LOL! You've got it bad, too! hehehe. We're a mess and it's sooo much fun. Just finished watching Twilight on Big HD TV and the extended scenes, too. Right now, I'm playing the sound track..."supermasive black hole." :music: :sing:

Thanks! Edward took forever. I drew him first & had a really hard time finishing the rest because he kept staring at me! O.o' Lol

This is relly good, lovely shading, and nice job on doing the poses and scene. :D
Only, I'd suggest working on the faces more, Rosalie's stands out the most.

I think it turned out awesome! This would be incredibly hard to do and would take a lot of time. You did an amazing job of capturing the characters, their clothes, etc. Edward is my favorite he turned out great. (Yeah, I finally saw the movie lol...). Just wow, you should be proud.
