she had the earth in her eyes
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.
