A Maiden of the goddess Persephone.
this is very good drwing or picture
Nope, it isn't me. The model for this piece was in fact a close friend of mine. Thanks for the comparison....however she is blonde with blue eyes and I am a brown eyed brunette. Never been mistaken for each other in real life but I will take the comparison as a compliment certainly!
It's so realistic, it almost looked like a real person when I first saw it. Good luck to you Brigid!
This really is a vivid piece...
It kinda looks like you, too, juding from the small pic on your main page
beautiful!! superb lighting! i didn't think such a thing was possible to do with coloured pencils. now you're making me reconsider (i nwas never too eager to do anything coloured pencil)
The lighting in this image is superb, and the flowers on her head are wonderfully rendered. Beautiful drawing.
Thank you so much I love your work. So beautiful!
Thank you James I love your work as well. I did so much research for this image, deciding whether or not she should be portrayed with dark hair, skin and eyes as people of the region have. I was surprised to find out that the Greeks treasured light hair and eyes above all, so the model was perfect the way she was. Of course there are a lot of varying complexions in that region but generally when one thinks Greek they think olive skin tone. But the model was spot on so it worked out brilliantly!
I am a big fan of yours so your compliment is doubly treasured. Thank you.
I think this is my favorite of your works, the way that you have mamages to capture her in the light and with the perfect shading! Keep it up!
Lovely, captivating image- Wonderful work!
Beautiful work! I really love the way you've captured the light. Nicely done.
That is fantastic,very natural colouring,The celtic type pattern around the outside is a nice touch.Nearly looks photoreal very nice
I love her expression. . . very ambiguous. Your pencil technique and composition are simply lovely.
