That sinking feeling by Gironimo That sinking feeling by Gironimo
:phew: this drawing is my biggest project so far and also the most private one to me.

I worked on it for 3 months, 22 hours overall using 2b, 4b and 6b wooden pencils.
Thanks a lot to =Sugarock99 for the permission to draw a photo out of her beautiful underwater gallery [link]


I really love it :heart:
Tell me what you're thinking of it, constructive hints are welcome as always!

Is it just coincidence? I was just listening to "Evanescence - Going under". o.O Has to be destiny :D
Wonderful work, I am amazed by the way how you managed to get the water surface look like a water surface.
Stunning work on those reflections!

The shading is good and the hair is beautifull, but I can't understand the picture very well...is she lying on her back or not?
I also think that the shading should be a little bit more defined.
The water is absolutely great (water is one of the most difficult things to do) and this really looks like the reference you used :D
You drew an extremely difficult perspective and I can't wait to see more of your works :iconfatpandaplz:
This one is great :D

thank you for your thoughtful comment :)

I think the problem here was to create a greyscale work, and some people also told me her pose under water might leed to a misunderstanding. Well but drawing the easy ones isn't my aim and I can learn much more by reading comments like yours :)

Best wishes :wave:

Drawing awesome things like this isn't easy.

uh well I'm not good with coloured pencils and here I found it to be a bigger challenge to create the scene only in greyscale.

A well done piece of artwork, with soft and smooth shadows, very expressive and also i consider the anatomy is done well( except i have doubts on the hand, it looks kinda strange, excuse me if i'm mistaken :) ).The foreground is drawn excellent, though i don't know what's happening in the upper left corner.Also as a side note i like the hairs flowness.Overally an excellent artwork :thumbsup: :D
