The screaming girl by SandraHultsved The screaming girl by SandraHultsved
When I read the poem 'The Girl that always screams' by ArtofMadameGrotesque I got so inspired by it that I wanted to illustrate it. After Madame Grotesque herself gave me her permission, I started sketching. Now here it is, my illustrated version of her lovely poem.

Read the poem here please: fav.me/d5z75cv

Done with graphite pencils & ink.

Incredibly emotive piece of work...and it fits the poem so well :D I can't help but feel for the poor girl in the drawing - her misery and abject hopelessness are really conveyed beautifully here. Wonderful job, and you've earned yourself a watch! =P

This still is my favourite of your drawings and it comes to my mind very often. Actually there are times when I can't get it out of my mind. I know you already have your own exhibitions. Anyway. I dare to ask if you would sell it?

Thank you so very much:aww: Did you read the poem by Madame Grotesque? When I first read it, I got so inspired and felt right away that I have to illustrate it. So it is based upon that^^

A severed arm seems to have snuck into your artwork!  Just thought you should know....  I have to say, this is one of my favorites of your work.  I adore the root systems on the trees and the grass growing around them.  Incredible...

Love the details - exspecially the arm :) And yeah, it's a great facial expression, though it looks different from the 'normal' expression of a scream to me. . . somehow.

Cool, thanks! I'm not sure what you mean by the last part, though? I used a reference to be able to capture a screaming face. With some modifications of course, to not get so much of a realistic touch, but a more illustrated one.

Well.. i think though was the false word . . . erm. . . maybe 'but' would fit better.. i dunno. It looks different from the 'stereotype-scream-face' (?) . . . But i like it very much! (Better explained..?)

Maybe, I thought you meant something looks a little off with the face, so that's why I wondered.
