Daily Deviation

Given 2012-06-30
The suggester said: It has made such an impact on me, the intense sadness depicted nearly drips off the screen. The effort put in to get all the details right is amazing, right down to the very realistic way the skin wrinkles. Never before have I seen such an accurate, realistic drawing of someone in agonizing misery. Loved and Lost!!! by ~nikz87 ( Suggested by Laeneris and Featured by Astralseed )

So much pain and anguish. I liked this but there is too much sorrow. How sad to have loved and lost. I am glad that I know no such feeling and hoped that I have never caused such grief.

plz dnt say abt reaching to my level.. art is a hobby to me and i'm a part timer who do some drawing in my free time... follow great artists like Armin Mersmann, Dirk Dzimirsky, Linda Huber and many others... thier works should motivate you much more than mine... best wishes..!!!

You are very humble. Many thanks for the names of those great artists. I enjoyed looking at their work - it' s magic. Anyway I don't need to draw to their standard as I love my job. I just need to be better at my drawings and pastels as I get asked by friends to draw their pets and families. Cheers.
