Between good and bad by Zindy Between good and bad by Zindy
Just a little something I decided to start last night and finished a few minutes ago. I really felt the urge to draw with my pastels again as I had this dream of an image. This was not it, I will start the drawing I dreamt of shortly. I wanted to do a few drawings before the planned one as it's been a while since I did pastels and I want it to be close to perfect once I start the drawing.

I feel happy with the outcome of this drawing, I used this photo: [link] as reference. As you can see I replaced the knife with the feathers. I wanted the dark and light feathers to represent the choices you sometimes get in life, whether it be small or bigger things.

The black baground took a very long time to get all black, but I managed to make it all black in the end. I feel this drawing is somewhat different to what I normally draw, perhaps because there is no big dreamy hair?^^

I hope you like it :floating:

Made with soft charcoal and pastels.
30x40cm | 12x16”

this is georgeous. I myself being an artist, though am not good with pastels. in fact ive only used pens sharpies and pencils and obsses over the morbid (goth) style. i can easily understand the points of this work. it is very moving and easy on the eyes. But proffesionally i must say that you need to work on your shading and dementia.

Beautiful pencilwork! I like your sparing usage of colours - they bring the girl to life much better than rich colours would have. :D

it's really something different, but it looks great! I almost thought it was a digital art work, I guess it's the very black background that makes it look like that. btw what did you use to get it so black?
wonderful work:thumbsup:

Zindy Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks very much.
I used soft charcoal for the background, lots of layers and smudging, my fingers were <b<very black afterwards ^^

aha, okay! thank you very much! ..but isn't it very easy to get charcoal over the whole drawing then? but I also use charcoal to the very dark areas, but still I'm so afraid to ruin the whole drawing when doing that.
and you're so welcome!^^

I know how you feel. It is sometimes difficult not to make a mess with charcoal. But if you gently blow away the dust whenever it gets on the places it shouldn't it usually goes alright :)

..but if you do a drawing in only charcoal, it can be pretty fun to mess around, haha!=P
