Oooo... wow, the eyes are powerful! I love the intensity, also I really like how you defined her freckles. The hair has great shape in framing the face, nicely done!

Excellent James, I like the dark saturated colour which I feel give this more depth. Hats off!

I think you do some amazing pencil work, and this piece is my favourite of yours... Especially those eyes.

somerset's picture

Thank you, Pierre! funny I knew the eyes where going to be special, even though I did them, I get goosebumps viewing them too!

This is an amazing work James. Difficult to take one's eyes off her gaze ! I have seldom (if ever) seen such a powerful piece done in colored pencils.

somerset's picture

Thank you, Joanna, yet again I have to say that a lot of the credit goes to Erikas brilliant modelling!

somerset's picture

Thank you, Simon! I nearly opted for the snake effect, but thought that tentacles fitted more with the siren idea!

somerset's picture

Ha ha well if you've got it flaunt it, Erika! so very pleased that you like!

Guest's picture

Nice suckers! This is great, I'm always amazed at what you can make those pencils do.

eschulz's picture

Yep I LOVE IT! This is just the coolest, most dramatic, exciting piece you have done. It is impossible to take your eyes off it. I wouldnt consider myself a vain person but I just cant stop staring at myself. ;}

Ohhh...those eyes! Super work, very dramatic. I like the way you made her hair coil around the tentacles.. and once again...those eyes...hynotizing!

Art at its best.
