Beautiful Decay - A3 Graphite Illustration
Finished this piece that I've been working on for the past few days yesterday. I call it Beautiful Decay. These drawings won't be for sale, and you might have noticed that the "Earth Mother" illustration has been taken down too.
There is something going on with these graphite drawings that I can't tell you about. I don't know how long it will be before I can either. It could be a month, 3 month or maybe a year. But sooner or later I will let you know.
Meanwhile I hope you will enjoy looking at them and I would love to know your views on them too. This is my favorite type of medium, graphite. I've tried to step away from it so many times. Tried my hand at painting rather than drawing. But I finally reached the point where I asked myself "Why?". I had no good reason to step away from pencil drawings as it is what I am good at. I guess I thought in my head that no gallery in the world would take on a pencil drawing.
But I have learnt to stay true to myself, as an artist, over the past year and now I'm focusing at the things I love rather then trying to do it "right" by taking on mediums I don't even enjoy working with. I think it shows in my art that I have matured as well. I have stepped away from the cartoony digital paintings I used to create and started drawing more realistic in a way. I want to start taking life drawing classes at some point and learn more about anatomy and the human form.
