SPRING GIRL by ericstavros SPRING GIRL by ericstavros
Drawing from the beautiful shot [link] .
my first drawing on this so famous 'strathmore bristol 300 serie' smooth paper (specially ordered from the US!). it is very good, indeed, it blends easier, i think...
i 've just changed a little bit the left side of the mouth, i think it's not so "sad" as the ref. pic. and looks better that way...
graphite pencils 2H to 8B on 43,2x35,6 bristol. about 12 hours.
thanks for looking and commenting... !

This is a brilliant piece, really well drawn. I love just how smooth the skin looks, it's fantastic! A little tiny detail that I think could be improved, you might be able to add a little more shading into area around the eyes? I think it'd help bring them out just a tad and add that very tiny bit of realism you haven't put it (everything else I wouldn't be too surprised if it jumped at me... except the background, I expect them to remain stationary :D)

thank you for your comment my friend! my problem is the photos i take! i have the same problem everytime, with the quality, the lighting... and i hardly can expose on the net the same quality as it's seen on the drawings themselves!....
well, if you can see better, there is a shadow around the eyes, mostly the left one, but, once again, we can not see it clearly here. the original is much better. thank you anyway! :)

wow!!! i didn't know you have your own DA page....!!!!! i believed you were a simple model who collaborated with this talented german photographer Francesco.... :)
well, i'm speechless! how did you find it? you noticed it in a group, correct? i think you were quite surprised!! :)
i must say that i asked for permission to reproduce your amazingly beautiful shot but, to be honest, i couldn't wait for the answer, so, i must apologize for this...
you are gorgeous and very sensual and that was a great inspiration and pleasure while i was drawing you! and i think the result are the good comments and favourites so far.... thank you for this wonderful job Sarah!!
