"And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head"

Haunted - Poe

Ismene is involved in a number of traumatic events, leading her to eventually be forced into exile, seeking refuge in Duinmere.

I finished this a while ago, but haven't found the motivation to submit it until now. I like parts of it a lot, but there are also parts that are really bothering me. This was just a simple portrait meant to get me back into drawing, and I'm hoping that I will be able to start drawing a bit more soon.

I love this! the expression and the feeling coming from it :) her eyes are beautiful!
However I find the hair being a bit dark to be honest, maybe if it had more highlights - same as the skin?

Thank you :)
You are absolutely right about the hair. This was a rather half-assed drawing to begin with, it was my attempt to get back some motivation after being inactive for quite a while, and I didn't spend nearly as much time on the hair as her face. I ended up throwing it together as quickly as possible when I started to lose motivation again. I may or may not go back and change it in the future.

sounds good! It's important to get back on track after some time without motivation, it's always hard for everyone. This drawing looks really good, I hope it got you some motivation back ;)

This is really beautiful, so soft and sad, and that ocean makes a great backdrop. <3
