Time takes away the ones you love
Time can heal your wounds

This started out as a drawing with a slightly different meaning but as I was in the process of it when my dad got hospitalized it kind of gave a different meaning to the piece. With time we can lose the ones we care about, whether it be family or friends (not always to death) but time seems to heal some of the lost feelings as well. I think time is fascinating in the way that time never feels the same. Sometimes time is too slow and sometimes time goes too fast.

As you can see I am very much using my eraser pencil, meaning I draw blond hair again. She originally was to have darker hair but I guess the lighter hair can have a symbolic meaning as well when we speak of time.

Wow isn't even the word. Breathless, not even Breathtaking because that is lacking the grace needed to speak for this picture. Time is precious. So is that girl.
shystarkey Featured By Owner May 25, 2011
wow I adore this picture, its fantastic, it looks like shes trapped in time because shes looking away from the clock and her eyes and the clocks seems like its the main focuss in the picture like time is against her or maybe the sands of time is running through her fingers.

Zindy, I am still totally blown away by this. My mom loves it too btw. :D I still can't fathom how unbelievably talented you are. I am VERY flattered that you wanted to use me as a model for your drawing. I know I've told you before but I am so sorry about your dad, and I am keeping you, him and the rest of your family in my thoughts everyday. Hugs.

This is soooo good, especially for charcoal :) I love all of your work! Great job!
Runemist Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I have to know...
HOW do you do that?! I've been learning about charcoal in my art class...and it's quite new to me (and horribly frustrating) but I have never, ever known how people can get such beautiful details in there without some kind of...amazing lazer eraser or something. My charcoal tends to go everywhere, not stay in the same tone I want, and in many ways, it doesn't look nearly as smooth and soft as your work! Or anyone's work!
So, either there's something I'm totally missing when dealing with charcoal...
Or you work on the scale of a wall...
OR, more likely, you're the most amazing person I've ever seen in the realm of charcoal!

Tremendous work! This drawing actually told me a story and invoked a lot of emotion in the process. I'm also going through a difficult time with a family member. :hug:

Nineveh03 Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2010
Whoa, nice one, but maybe it could be even better if her face would be a little lighter than the clock :>. But it's still great, I love the cracks on the clock and that tiny highlights on her face ^^
