Lovefool by ElenaR Lovefool by ElenaR
..we're making fools of ourselves for love :no:
You know it's true, you've acted like an idiot because of love as well, I bet you did!

This artwork is quite personal, not really because of the couple in the drawing, more because of what made me draw it and also because it lead me through some strange times. I started it with hope and I finished it ...well let's say without hope :sarcasm:

...anyway I'm not really happy with the outcome but I gotta say I like how it looks scanned :lol:, so after all my doubts while working on it within the last days ..ah maybe I am happy with the outcome :love:

general info:
size: A2 (40x55cm; ~16x20")
material: mech pencils: 2B-0,5mm, HB-0,3mm; pencils: 6B pencil, 9B graphite stick; kneaded eraser, pencil eraser, 185g/m² paper, blending stumps, cotton pads

Sorry for not posting works in Progress of this but I felt too damn insecure during the progress. I promise you'll see some of my upcoming works ...oooh I got quite a few drawings planned :nod:

...the model is my all-time favorite Ana Beatriz Barros btw who I've done my most popular drawings of :D...the guy, I don't know :slow:

More Ana drawings:
Original Sin

Crying Inside



...if you read all this you're my personal hero btw :thanks:

Wow, the illusion you create is really really awesome!!
It feels like looking at an edited photo!!
The only thing I find slightly disturbing is, that the nose looks as if it had two tips :)

Really awesome work!

Oh wow this is probably one of the best drawings I've seen, and mostly because of how well and detailed it is. Their posture is very nice and the look in her eyes shows so much emotion. Great shading!

Incredible work! All the time you've spend, and the hope, are reflected on the drawing. Love the highlights, specially the contrasts of her face. Very well done! :worship:

Absolutely gorgeous. At first glance, I actually thought it was a twilight picture with Edward and Bella. Then I realized you drew it way before then and read who your model was, lol. This is stunning work. I would be honored to be as good as you some day. I'm just starting out.

that's intense--a truly beautiful "sketch" (because it's hardly simple, now is it? haha) i think the detail/lighting on her lips is the most astounding, along with the suble undersides of both their jaws. :D
