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.

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.
