She sees the world a little differently, fascinated by the life which occupies her clothing; though anyone else looking just sees a blue hoody and a girl daydreaming. What do you see?
Dedicated to all the fascinating people I've met through my artwork, especially through conventions. They pop into my life for only a few moments really, but often leave deep impressions on me. Talking to so many people, with so many different backgrounds and lives and hopes for the future is very inspiring. People are a world, and I'm happy so many invite me to explore theirs. I was floored by all the stories you shared with me on my drawing 'Trapped by School' fav.me/d5wm5nx how everyone had different experiences and hoe they coped. I read them all despite not being able to reply to everyone. You all have such beautiful and creative minds. So this girls intriguing portrait is a homage to all you all
What they see is not all there is. No matter what they think, there is an untameable imagination, free spirit, and a beautiful and wonderful person just underneath the surface. ( This is wonderful. It really is. I really want the people out there who hate me or don't like me to see this. I am not the nicest, I'll admit, but a big part of that is that I'm defensive. People I don't know get pushed away because I've been hurt alot and I try to avoid getting hurt if I can. If those people had persisted and kept trying to be my friend, I would have alot more friends. Honestly, I gotta say, if there's ever been a person who didn't like for no reason or pre-judged you negatively, they are hands down the dumbest person out there. You are beautiful and kind, really. We are lucky to have someone like you.)
Yeah, I've been tracing quite a bit. It actually helps a lot, learn a lot about the techniques. I also only trace bits of something I like, and draw the rest myself, making it more personal. I feel guilty tracing other's work though thanks for all the advice!
no problem. I traced for a whole year, this was before I found dA but it still helped. I also used books near the beginning. Over time you get your own way of drawing. Don't be limited to just manga style though. Trying realism and semi-realism would be good. I do it myself but I keep it of dA because I'm bad at it.
