.Her Secret Garden. by Xenonia .Her Secret Garden. by Xenonia
Drew this during Christmas 2007, just for fun, recreation and relaxation.

So many errors to it... Didn't want to stress too much with it.

I was actually going to colour it digitally before uploading it, but theres so much going on these days that I don't have time to do it just yet. So I decided to upload the original bw pencil drawing first. :)

No reference used for the girl and background, but I looked at some pictures of flowers to get them a bit right.

Mechanical pencil used for drawing. Kneaded erasers and some photoshop for highlights.

I thing it looks really pretty in black and white already, specially considering you didn't use references besides the flowers. Her face is lovely.

pretty good, legit. except if you're trying to draw a roman arch, they use like keystone shaped bricks, not rectangles. just saying~

A lot of depth even without the color. I think it actually benefits from not having any.

This is a lovely drawing. I'm glad you kept it in black and white actually because it really suits it. But I like the textures you achieved, and the way the picture is composed. It's really quite nice.

the two things which grabbed me right away were the flowers and the girl's hair. so stunning! i really think that being relaxed and happy is almost as good (if not better) than trying for technical perfection. i see no flaws. :)
