Mariam II (2009)

Been wanting to do this for a while now... Her eyes have probably been the most difficult thing Ive drawn in many years. Was almost in tears because I struggled so much, but was so worth it ♥

Anyway, thought Id share it with you all. Hope you like!

The Mariam portraits both manage to convey more life and heart than most of the photographs I've seen.  There is a personality shining through these works.  Amazing!

Great job capturing her eyes. The struggle was worth it. what a beautiful and intelligent looking woman you have made. She should be in a story.

A lot of times, drawn images don't have that authenticity to them that elicits a smile out of the viewer... But this picture really does.

I was poking around deviant art in a bit of an analytical mood trying to find inspiration for a story, so I was really overthinking things. When I saw this picture, it just arrested my thoughts and made me feel happy. It's stunning.

So, thank you for the beauty and the smile! You're one hell of a great artist.

Hey nicely done :D

Say say... This is the same Mariam featured in Mariam (I) right ? I was wondering... Why does she look WAY more mature (adult) on this one ? She looks like a ... 22-25 yo woman here, while she looked like 16-18 at most on the other pic ?

Thanks! Well its nothing more than simply 2 different interpretations of her. This is much closer to how she really looks, whereas the other I decided to go for a younger look.
