Well, wow.. That is beyond amazing! Rarely do I see anything that I see as worth mentioning, but that is absolutely magnificent! How big is it? Seriously with everything that i know about portraiture in photography and drawing this is just beautiful and honestly verging on perfect. It may just be my strong opinion, but you need a trophy. I'd be interested in buying if possible? Phenomenal job with the facial shading on both reflection and the figure, the water ripples look good and are just basic enough to not stand out, yet clear enough to indicate they are ripples
Thank you very much my dear Free of the reflection means to be free from people's expectations,leave your own self behind and move your reality one step further. I am sure you will do something much more wonderful than this,one day if you pursue it,if this is what you really want in your heart,and if you are dedicated to your passion for art
Wow. Thanks. I am dedicated and I would love to be free of other people's expectations but sometimes for me that's not possible. I use my art to create a fantasy that may never come true. but it's my fantasy to live in. When I saw your drawing, I saw a little bit of my fantasy in there. That's why I loved it.
For me, art is something I can count on to escape. When I draw, I'm no longer in the real world. I'm in my own world. If there were more ppl like me in that world? Then definitely the more...the merrier!
Doesn't have the strong feelings of anger and sadness that some of your others but a very good piece. I really do like the idea or at least the idea I'm getting out of it. I am not sure if water was supposed creating the reflection, I will admit I turned it on its side and liked it from that view also, as if she were stepping out of a mirrior. Thanks.
I know people are just stating thier opinions but it bothered me, and it shouldn't, about the couple other comments I read about different details missing or should be different. Maybe because I wasn't sure if they saw the same meaning behind it as I did, which makes the image stronger to me. I look at it not only from the leaving of ones own self image but also the idea of being able to step away from the imposed images of what other people want a woman, or man if it were drawn that way, to be and also to step into the future without preconcieved images of what a person should be and to just be yourself. Thanks again for the good work and sorry for such a long winded response.
