Sad Fate by XRlS Sad Fate by XRlS
I wanted to come out with something slightly different here.I didnt upload any wips for this although i kept 2 previous stages scanned.The first layers were just unpolished soft pastels.And then the fun started with the watercolor pencils.I changed my paper here to Canson Mi Teintes 160grm/m2.It gave me a unique texture making her skin look like delicate porcelain.In case you have questions,pls ask away.

:iconpinkrose1plz::iconpinkrose2plz::iconpinkrose3plz::iconpinkrose4plz::iconpinkrose5plz::iconpinkrose6plz:
I used
Soft pastels for the first layers
Derwent watercolor pencils dry
Albrecht Durer faber castell watercolor pencils dry
Edding 140S Marker 0.3mm black
C.Kreul extrafine 0.8mm white

Such a sweet Angel! Lovely tender face! Would you give me your kind permission to get art reference from your image to do some drawing or perhaps pastel? I'm a member here, but do not have any albums for now, because I'm sick and my husband die just few months ago, I have many problems, but I love to do artwork, not for commercial reason, just for me because I like it, though I am able to do drawing or pastel now because I lost my house and everything in t including all my art tools, I'm not complaining at all God is good and He love me, He is with me holding my heart and my hands! May He bless you and your family always.
Irma
PS. I will be thankful with any answer, yes or no, since I understand and respect other people work

I got it now, I am sure, I double checked, I changed it once, It was still wrong, then I changed it again, still wrong, and then I finally got it when I figured out that your icon had an L and not an I :) but I got it! :D

I found this really funny, I kept doing the same thing, and I was getting really frustrated when I was posting her XRlS's work on our front page. In the preview it kept coming up wrong!

I used as a ref his gallery,here [link] i wanted to capture this fragility,the hairless faces that look like sculptures,the colors were my version of this,i dont know if it makes sense to you,i am trying to explain as plain as possible.Some times its hard to extract all the images off of my head,other times its simpler and it comes naturally.
Thank you very much for the kind words ,you have a beautiful gallery.:nod:

i sure understand that, i really adore this piece of artwork, either you used a reference or not, i also focused on your character's hairless eyebrow area, which emphesizes the general rawness +i love the sculpture comparison! thank you for appreciating my work, have a nice day :)

Well, maybe sometime I could try as it looks so ... porcelain :)
But I'm not in the color mood yet ...At this time I'm trying grunge, vintage and rough textures with graphite, maybe I could use them sometime :) :) :blowkiss:

XRlS Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
you know what i think? Since you cant force Art (same way you cant force love out of anyone),if rough textures is what you feel like doing,then by all means,do what pleases you the most.Theres no other way of doing this.And if you need someone to share your wips,you can count on me.:nod:

Sure I know I can count on you :tighthug: And sure you know you can count on me for any point of view. But sure it's less useful that way, at least for artistic and drawing skills ;)
Thank you so much master :tighthug:
