Broken by Cataclysm-X Broken by Cataclysm-X
Yeah, she's finished :). Sure it's not my best drawing ever. As you can see I didn't blend the picture, and that's because of several reasons:
  • Since this is a 'raw', tough and different drawing, I wanted to stay it different by looking it 'raw'. That's why I called this drawing Broken

  • It's a drawing based upon one of Luis Royo's artworks: so that means it isn't supposed to look realistic.

  • I wanted to try out some different techniques than what I usually do. You can expect a lot more try outs on sketches, pointilism, abstract, surrealism etc.

  • Song: Sonata Arctica - Broken

    Only once I have broken my so called heart.
    Only one made me see why they cry.

    Little broken , always been, a part of you belongs to me.
    You were never mine to love, but this all has made it easy for me...

    I needed:
    - about 10 - 15 hours to complete
    - HB and 2B mechanical pencils
    - 2H, 3H, 4H, 5H and 6H pencils
    - 7B, 8B and 9B pencils
    - patience, a lot...
    - your advice, thank you for that!
    - lots of music to listen to

    ...and if you would like to see the WIPs of this drawing, you can go to:
    WIP 1: [link]
    WIP 2: [link]
    WIP 3: [link]

    I promise you that I'll do a serious realistic portrait again next time I put a drawing up. I know a few of you were a little disappointed with this 'experiment'... sigh...
