.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.

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. :)

I love the bw pencil drawing. The details are superb, and the girl is simply beautiful. The overall image lends a sense of peace and serenity, with a little bit of panty thrown in *wink* I TRULY love this drawing. I would hang it on my wall right now as is, uncolored. I can't wait to see what you do when you color it. You have a fabulous deviation here my dear. :)

Thank you so much!

I don't think I will color it, though. Did this years ago, got a DD on it, and I've realized it looks better in b/w due to all the details. :)

I'm glad you didn't color it digitally, I really like it like this, I think colors would ruin this picture.

Hi :wave: I have never been a fan of manga or anime, but I love this creation of yours. And you just may have opened my mind to reconsider my thoughts on manga and anime ;) Wonderful work! :clap: The shading is my favorite aspect but the entire composition is fantastic. Congrats on your Daily Deviation too :w00t:
