She is hiding something from you, or perhaps from herself?

Rated 5 / 5 stars

it could be framed

it looks like somethin that could be in a galery

ornery responds:

Thats the ultimate goal, and it will be in one for a bit before the year is up, but framed? A 7 foot frame is a bit out of my price range at the moment.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Wonderful, one gripe.

Everything about the piece is wonderful, but the lack of background is kind of sad. Even something so simple, a wooden floor, a beach, hell; even the sky.

My favorite part of it would definitely be how the shading, gives the skin a more realistic feel, where the skin rises, where the bones are shown, that is really nice.

ornery responds:

The lack of background is intentional, its to show that you can still have a nice completed work without having to throw a background in. If you use the amount of white space correctly the figure wont appear to be floating or incomplete either. Its up to the viewer to imagine a space in place of a drawn background which forces them into a certain mindset.

Also because these are meant to be viewed in a certain kind of space in reality the lack of background works even better in those locations.

Holy crap, thats all I can say. What amazes me is your media choice. Chalk and Graphite, thats absolutely amazing. I'm not a very artistic person, but I feel as if I can appreciate good art when I see it. And I appreciate this.

I feel as if your description is the icing on the cake, too. A picture speaks a thousand words, but your description fits perfectly.
