Forest Princess by Zindy Forest Princess by Zindy
I started this drawing at the beginning of the year. It's been some work with all the small details. I've really liked creating this drawing. I posted some photos on my website around June, from a photoshop I did with a friend of mine, the beautiful Helena, Autumn 2006.
See the photoshoot here: [link] (in People, the middle ones)

My drawing is based on one of my favourite photos from the shoot. It has this certain feeling and mood - a mix of happiness and peacefulness.
The leaves was a real challenge to create. I haven't done many leaves before and I find them a little hard to get the right structure on. All in all I feel happy with the outcome of the drawing, it has a special meaning to me.

Made with soft charcoal.
40x30cm | 16x12”
