Crying Inside by ElenaR Crying Inside by ElenaR
size: 40x40cm (~16x16"); done on A2 185g/m² paper (download should be the original size ~1200x1200px)

I picked the title "Crying Inside", there was an (almost-) tie between this and "The Anxiety of Romance" and I somewhat prefered this more simple one :)
Thanks for the suggestions to:
:iconlady-shirakawa: :iconkaledrub: :icontimparmax: and everyoneelse who suggested titles and voted :blowkiss:
...the title "Crying Inside" was suggested by *kaledrub Thanks :hug:

I promised to provide some information on my technique on the finished drawing so this time I will name my tools and what I used them for :)

background: pure graphite powder applied with brushes, a small one to rub it in a little more for the dark parts and a big one to make more subtle greys.

foreground: ...I mean the blurry plant-part on the right, same as background only some parts were "drawn" with a dirty blending stump, that's stuffed with graphite ;) Some individual leaves were done with a mechanical pencil, so is the tiny twig.

hair: pure graphite stick for the darks, 6B pencil and mechanical pencils for the details. Everything blended with the blending stump. Highlights and flyaway hairs done with a pencil-shaped eraser and a kneaded eraser :)

face: Drawn as usual with my 2B 0,5mm-mechanical pencil mainly, 6B for darkest parts.

Crying Inside by =ElenaR JurgenDoe says...."Magnificent and wonderful portrait work and the face looks so sad. With "crying inside" ElanaR captured a wonderful and very original expression and this is far one of the best portrait pencil images." ( Suggested by JurgenDoe and Featured by KariAnnLax )

this is beautiful~ :D the hair looks soo soft~
the only thing that I'd have to criticize is the eyes. i think the irises look a bit flat (might just be me), so maybe put the lines in it and have different shadings in them? just a suggestion :) it's a really beautiful piece :D

Can I say that that is beautiful??? I googled crying for no particular reason and scrolled down and this popped up. I clicked on it because I thought it was a picture from an old movie or something and I wanted to know who the actress was but then deviantart came up and I read the description and was all :OOO it's a drawing!!! I want steals on your talent, that's amazing. :D
