Pieces Of Myself by marc-bruno Pieces Of Myself by marc-bruno
My contribution to the Musical Muse Contest [link]


I've listened to Replica by Sonata Arctica and these two stanzas made me draw this picture:

I'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind
your door. I tried so hard to obey the law, see the
meaning of it all. Remember me? Before the war.
I'm the man who lived next door. Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me, I'm pieces of
what I used to be. It's easier if you don't see me
standing on my own two feet. I'm taller when I sit
here still, you ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me a heart of steal, the kind them bullets
cannot see



Faber Castell Ecco Pigment Liners (0.1 & 0.3mm) and Faber Castell blacklead pencils (HB, H & 2H). About two hours of concept and work.

it's stunning.

The idea for this is really good, and I think the fact the technique isn't absolutely perfect adds charm to it. Perhaps a bit more detail, and maybe shadow, and it would go from 7 to 8.

Sounds by these writings that its about a soldiers life change during and after a war, am I correcto?

Emotional lines make a emotional drawing even that corner line is the most emotional and really important line too. Has good contimuem throughout the body and even the foot in forground extends that overal hiddin partitional line (continuem) giving negative space planes devised into an overall layout. Leaving the horizontal line a bit ruff is nice for the others are farely straight. For the subject matter well looks like Pablo would be proud for sure!
