Awake My Soul by Anna-Mariaa Awake My Soul by Anna-Mariaa
SOLD

This is a commission I did for wonderful :iconsamuraiandthedragon:, thank you very much for the opportunity!

It might have been one of the hardest drawings to work on, partly because of the hair but also because there are so many dark areas and they make digitalizing a pain in the ass. As I am writing this I still don't know which version I should upload. But I think I might for once go with a photo instead of a scan.

As always, this is drawn with mechanical pencils on bristol paper. it took me a really long time, I'm guessing about 40 hours. Size is A4.

Even though it doesn't fit the drawing at all, the soundtrack that goes with it is the album 'a larum' by Johnny Flynn.

Thanks for looking! :heart:

PS: It's Scarlett Johansson

edit: here's the reference

Anna; You need to give me some pointers :) cause your drawings are amazing. I'm still struggling with skin tone, but it's coming slowly
Great work.

This is the best example in the world how realistic drawings should be done: precise and photo-realistic but with small touch that will show that this is drawing and that this is made by human hand! This is absolutely piece of art! :D
