Honey.. by latent-talent Honey.. by latent-talent
My new artwork... Wanted to name it "Viscous Folds" coz of the thickness of the liquid on her face. But "Honey" sounds simple and familiar..

Model : Monica Bellucci

took me 9 hours.. on 280gsm ivory sheet.. cretacolor and camlin pencils... done mainly using 2b mechanical [0.5mm]. also used a blending stick for the 1st time [since it was not available in my city!]... would that suck!

Thanks for all the favorites and the watches..! i really appreciate it..

Here is a version of this portrait with the reference used :

There will be another sketch in this series.. featuring the same absolutely gorgeous Monica. Expect more smoother artwork from now since iv used blending material for the 1st time in this one... since such stuffs r not available in shops where i live!! i have to get them by searching major cities far away from my place..!!
so iv just ordered some quality material from a website.. which will reach my house in october!! i can hardly wait!

Thanks a mil for the DD!

And for all those who have commented and added this art as favorite, i thank u with my heart....... there r so many comments, so i wont be able to address each and every one of them.... but i really appreciate that... :) Plz keep a lookout for my upcoming works...

Really expressive drawing, the spill of clear honey is both unusual and an interesting food concept. Thank you for the info relative to time taken and materials used. The paper rubbing stick (stub) is readily available mail order UK ( in various sizes. My only question in a negative sense, is that the right eye is shown to be elongated by the honey stream, yet the stream is not present either on the eyebrow or eye but clearly visible on the cheek below the eye. Despite this I was delighted by the thoughtand execution of this work.

this is so wonderful! by the way, i saw a colored version this pic being used in an online banner. do you own the rights / did they steal the artwork? if you're interested in investigating this issue, just tell me! i got a screenshot and the link to the website.

I am in awe of your drawing, and especially your ability to capture the appearance of liquid, and the think sludge like quality of honey. It's really beautifully done!

Haha, I thought that was a Photograph and when I saw that it took you 9 hours to create, I was like Nine Hours for a Photo? Really? But then I kept reading and realized it was a drawing... I didn't notice that it had been posted under the drawing category.. This is really amazing. Good job!

Ikr but if it was a picture wouldn't the honey be really hard to wash/get off so therefore it would just be stupid, but im just say... they can do whatever they want with there face!!!
