Whisper by SandraHultsved Whisper by SandraHultsved
Black and white ink, pen & graphite pencils.

My inspiration for this begun after I was asked to do artworks for a band (Bleeding Tears), it kinda ran out in the sand. But my inspiration and ideas where still there and I liked the feeling in it a lot. So this is what turned out. It's not the character that I imagined for their artwork, but it's an inspiration of the mood.

You should really listen to their songs though, this is the song that inspired me, Bleeding Tears - Prelude into the Fear: www.youtube.com/watch?v=DO6vfD…

The contrast of light reminds me De Nachtwacht, and your drawings in general reminds me a little to Angel's Egg

She looks like a lost, tragic spirit. You created a great ambiance with her luminescence and the brooding trees.

I'm not sure what she is, but yes, probably something like that. I can imagine it is her pleading whispers you will hear in the wind between the trees at night.

This is a very interesting piece indeed, but I am especially fond of the technique. The 'scratched' texture in the trees seems almost scribbled yet creates a realistic presence when seen as a whole. The simple yet glowing figure looming in the dark forest. The surrounding values really make it pop off the cavas. It is dark in its atmosphere yet almost romantic and spiritual in its own mysterious way. I haven't heard the song yet but I will get around to it soon, I'm curious to know what inspired you. Fantastic work my friend.

It's like you are describing my inner mind, really, thank you!
I have fallen in love with this style just because it's, like you say, I almost scribble it out when I draw it, which I found very meditative. But as a whole it will look realistic enough, still with a very illustrated look. I'm very inspired by the golden age illustrations that you can see in storybooks and techniques such as etching. But as a realist from the beginning, I can't help but to put in a lot of shading done with graphite pencils.

You should definitely check out the song, I like it very much^^
Thanks again!:rose:

It's not talent, it's something I've worked on for many years. It's a skill you will have to learn and keep developing, to get where you want to be.:) Anyone can learn to draw!

Jätte vackert konstverk, jag gillar oändligheten i den. :D
Påminner lite om John Bauer´s "Tuvstarr".
Fast din teckning är väldigt egen och vacker! Den bara väckte lite påminnelse kring John Bauers.
Hoppas du inte misstolkar...

Nedå inte om du menar som känsla och så. För jag kan förstå de, att folk lätt får den associationen. Men så länge det känns som nått unikt så är jag nöjd, för har försökt hitta till min egna stil. Sen älskar jag John Bauers bilder och ser upp till honom som konstnär! Så om jag får den associationen för de, så har jag nått mitt mål^^

Eerie and both beautiful and scary. I like how you designed her dress, the point fits good in the format of the triangle of the trail. I also like the fact that she is totally white, there is no way of telling her facial expression, and her lack of arms makes her really scary! Very good!
