++ Halls of Blind +++ by Haliestra ++ Halls of Blind +++ by Haliestra
One year ago, this drawing was destroyed due a fire we had in the house, and I think that I'm going to draw this one again, because this had some mistakes which I want to undo...

Little description how I got this idea: I met some blind peoples a long time ago and I was so in awe how they can see/read/feel with only their hands... close your eyes and try to see with teh help of your hands, not so easy as many think.... nothing more to tell, hope you like it

Reference/Model: my friend Elena, thanks so much my dear.
Material: bristol board, mechanical pencil (6B), woodless pencil (9B) and for the dark areas Charcoal, paper stumps and a brush.

I like that! And I used it for a free to download PDF with a german translation of the witch character class for D&D.

It may be not the original intention of this piece but it fits very well.

Have a look here: [link]

I hope it's ok. I really like it. =)

Schön gezeichnet. Mir gefällt das Motiv richtig gut.
Vorallen gefällt mir wie diese Hand gemalt worden ist - mir fält es immer besonders schwer Hände zu malen.

Good technique and clever idea... Really nice! One of your best, I think.

I especially like the nails, the eye (and the texture surrounding), the lips (killer shades!) and the nose. So, basically everything... except for the index finger and ring. But that's just a detail that doesn't spoil anything (and the perspective on the other fingers is just fine).

So you work with woodless pencils, really? I always thought those so-called "evolution" plastic things were crap! Or maybe I'm thinking about something else...? I must be.

yes, you're the third person who says that this has similarities to Pan's Labyrinth... still haven't seen that. My luck is that Halls of Blind is a bit older that the movie :)

Thank you for commenting and the kind words.

this is an amazing piece of work!
The idea behind it is great!
For a project on school I had to be 'blind' for a day and learned brailles etc but it's soo hard and I have such a respect for those who can do all those things with their hands :D your drawing is amazing!
