a tale from arabia by Vive-Le-Rock a tale from arabia by Vive-Le-Rock
she had the earth in her eyes :earth:
thanks to for permission to draw her beautiful photo [link] . i wanted to try something new this time and make the drawing a little more original... so...
look closely... that in her eye is the earth, a view of the Arabia. earth of so many secrets. i'd love to go there someday... personally, i think veils are beautiful, i mean there shouldn't be a reason for which someone should hide their face, but if you just concentrate on a person's eyes you can see so much more... i only recognize myself in my eyes. maybe it's just because i've only been looking at my reflection for fifteen years.
the earth is hidden in our souls... the secret of life is right there in our eyes.
i am reaaaaaaaally pissed off with my scanner now. that ugly stripe on the eyes is from the light of the scanner reflecting on the dark pencil. i have no idea how to fix that. and it's just really irritating. this portrait is one of my best so far! :( plus i was meaning to write a more interesting description but i'm not in a time of inspiration. sorry guys.

So beautiful! I love how the eyes are and how her scarf drapes around her face, giving her a mysterious and pure look!

wow, that's really amazing :)
she's got a personality, she looks like a real person even though you can only see her eyes, and that's really hard to capture with pencil
well done :)

Gorgeous! It's interesting how the eye to the left is darker in value than at the right. It gives it an exotic feeling. Beautiful!

This is very beautiful. She looks very mysterious but also kind and gentle. The veil looks so soft I just want to touch it. Great job on the eyelashes too.
