Well, let me try.

Vision: 10/10
This is a frame which we have seen rarely, maybe in intense and emotional scenes in movies and music videos. But in Art? Nope. That's where you score, in having this vision in your head, for a drawing.

Originality: 10/10
Like I said, I still haven't come around a single artwork like this ever. So, you score here too.

Technique: 10/10
I guess I knew that. :P I mean, yeah, color pencils. I have'em too. But how do you do this????? The eye! The hair! The skin! THE LIPS! and even the TEETH! The highlights and shadows! The liveliness, the realistic skin tone! Oh...come on!

Impact: 10/10
Speechless. Reduced to tears, literally. :P

Final Verdict: 10/10
I wish the world knows more of you. And the world will surely be a better place then. :)

So powerful I need to remind myself to keep breathing. Often, when an artist’s style is idealistic, you see works that seem a little too carefully packaged. Not so with XRIS. From a gallery containing many pieces worthy of perfect scores, this is the creme de la creme. At once evoking empathy, mystery, desire, and oceans of sorrow, this work overwhelms our hearts quicker that it satiates our eyes. Great art touches us on many levels at once. Artists that can do this with bold, idealized colors and lines are rare indeed. This is great art. This is a great artist. This transcends categorized scoring systems. Really, no need to point out the technical brilliance - use of the hair for both contrast and unity, perfect balance in placement of the features, the brilliant choice to crop the face so closely, and at an angle that makes us feel as though we have entered the life of another, the uncanny, even profound blending of idealism and realism…no need to go on…just bask in the light and savor the moment.

Stunning! Only from really close up, I can see the texture of the paper and that the portrait was drawn, and that it's not a photo! I have some watercolor pencils too, but could never thought that they can be used in such a great way. Why you used them instead of the normal colored pencils?

because i wanted to have the option of using water with them, available. :)

would you believe me if i say i had this Derwent set of watercolor pencils for 17 years? It was my first watercolor pencil set ever and ofc now many of these pencils  have gone so small that i cant even hold them. Yes i wanted to keep the option available, no matter that i didnt use it back them but guess what? This year i have finally started to add water to those pencils and i am stunned with the possibilities.:heart:

Oh waw! 17 years is a long time! Did you upload any watercolor pencil used with water? I can't find it in your gallery.
