Oblivion B/W by XRlS Oblivion B/W by XRlS
This is the graphite version of

It is the truth that B/W portraits get to have a different artistic significance,a dramatic approach to one's heart and eye.Since i did this already in color,i had to try in graphite too.

Time for everbody
Listen to the sound
and all the lonely people
live beneath the ground
donīt listen to another
just listen to yourself
only changes can happens
when you change yourself
I want run
I want hide
I only want to live
To live my life


Breathe of pain
Iīm the ruler of my world
Breathe in peace
Iīm the ruler of the world


I courage of conviction
In everything you do
Course every little action
Only falls on to you
And I donīt want excuses
To hear your bitterness
Thereīs far to many people
Who want to give their best
I want run
I want hide
I only want to live
To live my life

Your work is outstanding. I like the B/W a little better because I like the look you get from the contrast of lights and darks. It is a personal preference for me to choose the black and white drawing over the color. I think black and white give the piece a classic look and bring out a certain beauty in it. I like the 1940’s and 50’s era when most photos were in black and white.

I like both pieces and this is not to say the color drawing is not as good because it is. I prefer black and white out color in most cases. As you can see most of my work is in black and white.

Both works are done equally as good. I choose the black and white and bases of preference.

Great work as usual.

Christina,
I remember a very talented artist once said to me that it is how it makes me feel that is the best critique. And that makes you qualify to be able to give critique! So I will start there, the first emotion is sadness for the story behind the eyes, the expression and face. I feel like their was a lot going on in this mind before this. I connect instantly with her passion and I want to run the backs of my fingers lovingly over her cheek. I personally will always be drawn to the graphite, because it is my fave medium. But in this case the graphite brings even more emotion and story to the piece. The light and shadow on this is outstanding and the eyes are exquisite! My only thing and this purely personal is the earing is a little wierd for me, but it may be your intention to have it look blurred
Cheers
Jason

Ειναι αληθεια οτι μπροστα σε τετοιες φωτογραφιες παραλυω.Μου κρεμαει το σαγονι...
Ειμαι εντελως αχρηστη στο να τραβαω φωτογραφιες,κοβω κεφαλια,χερια,δεν καρδαρω το θεμα μου,ειμαι ανικανη να καταλαβω καν ποιο ειναι το θεμα:Ο_ο:
Ενας μου ειπε προσφατα οτι αν ζωγραφιζω οπως ζωγραφιζω δεν χρειαζεται να τραβαω φωτογραφιες καθολου,αφου ολη τη δουλεια την κανει το μυαλο μου,τα χερια μου και τα μολυβια μου χωρις την βοηθεια μιας μηχανης,ομως θεωρω την φωτογραφια υψιστη μορφη τεχνης που ΔΕΝ κατεχω... :(
Ο συνονοματος οντως ειναι εξαιρετικος φωτογραφος! ;)

Προσωπικα δεν μπορω να διαλεξω αναμεσα στις 2 version,ξερεις ποσο πολυ αγαπαω το χρωμα αλλα πως να αντισταθω Βαγγελη στο δραμα και το βαθος που εχει το ασπρομαυρο? Επρεπε να το κανω αυτο!

Ακομα ΔΕΝ εχω αγγιξει τις ακουαρελες μου,ειμαι καταπτυστη!!!Χαστουκισε μεεεεεεε!!!!:stupidme:

ναι αλλη φαση η φωτογραφια...θελει τρελο ψαξιμο για να γινει κανεις εστω κ μετριος φωτογραφος..ρισπεκτ.
καταλαβαινω το διλημμα xD
το b/w ειναι παντα πιο ατμοσφαιρικο και εχει μεγαλυτερο impact, παρα το εντυπωσιακον και λαχταριστον του χρωματος..
λολ κοιτα, παρε μια κολλα ακουαρελας και παιξε λιγο με τα χρωματα, κανε μιξεις στο χαρτι, wet on wet, dry brush, κτλ και αν δε σου ρθει να ζωγραφισεις ξαναβαλτα μεσα xD
ειναι λιγο αγχωτικο μεσο το νεροχρωμα, ψεκαστε, σκουπιστε, τελειωσατε και οτι βγηκε, βγηκε!
δε φανταζεσαι ποσα χαρτια κ μπογιες εχω χαραμισει χD
