Forgotten by the world by artsaves1228 Forgotten by the world by artsaves1228
This is my entry for *bloodymarie-stock's Victoria Frances contest! I adore Victoria's artwork so I had to enter this, she does mostly sad, dark girls too which I love of course :giggle: We were supposed to use one of *bloodymarie-stock's stock photos meant for this contest and create our own piece inspired by a painting by Victoria Frances, INSPIRED being the keyword...Most of the entries look pretty much the same and look almost exactly like the original painting by Victoria and are all digital works so I wanted to make it my own...I love drawing sunset/sunrises so I really wanted to do that with this piece. Two things Im not good at drawing---bird and clothes, so they dont look the best I know. And I know I didnt do the wings, I figured there was already enough going on in the drawing and for some reason I just thought it looked best without them this time. The shadows from the tree and the girl were kinda hard, cause I used charcoal OVER acrylic paint, and didnt seem to wanna shade very well or shade very dark this time. But oh gosh, I spent forever on this. Used just about every medium possible, was a pain in the ass but worth it :D I hope you like it :heart:

this is the pic I used as a reference> [link]
and heres Victoria France's original painting> [link]


about 6 hours
10x14inch Arches watercolor paper
charcoal, charcoal pencils, white charcoal, markers, pastels, acrylic paint, some cheap ass black paint. q-tips and cottonballs to shade

I give ~VictoriaFrancesClub =Death-Chicks *DeviantDolls ~darkclub and *DivasOfDarkDesires *EliteArtists ~artiswhatwemakeit *darkelements *Corset-Fetish-Club permission to submit this in the club

This is just really REALLY good, awesome illustration....and Arches is hard paper to work on as well. Love the texture and that gradient in the sky, smooth as silk.....well done there, very much so. I can really see this being used commercially

thanks so much :aww: Arches is a pain in the ass sometimes, but works great for charcoal and pastels thankfully...its really crappy for pencil work though :giggle:
