This is a drawing of Andrea, my girlfriend, sleeping.

Edit: wow, i got a lot of comments on this one. First of all many many many thanks to everyone who commented or faved or added me as a friend. It's really encouraging to get this kind of response and hopefully you'll like whatever i do next as well. Having said that i'll see if i can answer some of the questions that popped up in this thread. The lower part of the drawing was done using only pencils and ashes, while the red bar on top was done using gouaches and black india ink. About that red bar, some people liked it 'cause they thought it gave depth to the picture and contrasted nicely with it while others found it too distracting and would prefer to have it removed. To tell the truth i did the red bar before i even considered doing the drawing beneath it and by the time it was finished i had gotten used to it sitting on top of everything. I did consider cropping it, but it just looked weird to me without it so i left it there. It doesn't hold any special significance, i just like it but i understand if some people do not.
To those that think that she's a lucky girl to have someone draw her like that all i can say is that i'm the lucky one to have her in my life and i only wish i could have drawn her as beautiful as she looks to me when i watch her sleep. Andrea could sleep through an atom bomb explosion so she didn't find it creepy that i drew her while she was asleep, i don't think she even noticed any movement. She also doesn't mind this drawing being posted, but she is more opinionated about this one [link] because she thinks i made her look fat. I fail to see it but she points out to the way i drew her stomach with an irritated look in her eyes and i end up finding myself at a loss for words. :confused: -sigh- i don't think she'd stop puzzling me if we grew to be two hundred years old.
