Black Sky by Zindy Black Sky by Zindy
Sometimes you find yourself sitting at a black sky wishing for the colours and the real stars...

This is a drawing I started while visiting my parents last week. I finished it up a few days back, after many hours of work. It's one of my own personal favourite drawings because it has a lot of my past in it and I feel I got the meaning and expression I wishes for to show.
It’s been a while since I did a darker drawing and I wanted to make a meaningful one.
It’s a mix of colour pencils and soft pastels.

Thanks for all your support :heart:

This drawing reminds me a lot of my own drawing I did recently. Maybe we were looking at the same photo? :D
Anyway, beautiful drawing :)

Besides loving absolutely everything about the girl, I really like how you put the stars. They remind me of the mobiles that hang above a babies crib, so when I read that it involved your past it was even more interesting. I like how most of the strings are slightly bent at the end, it makes me think of the random quality life has. Her eyes are in a tie with her hair for winning my heart :)

I admire not only the symbolism but the raw technicality of your work, especially the anatomy of her face and the hanging stars.

Its as if her world was nothing but a stage, the backdrop draped around her, but at the same time the only real thing that she knows is the dark sky the surrounds her.

I don't know if has chains out side the UK. But it's a shoe store, and the logo is this red headed fairy in the same position, about fro the head and minus the bonage ribbons on her arm. It's a digital drawing though.

I always find it hard to do faces at that angle, but you did so good, her face is beautiful. This is one of my faves. The hair lightly flying around is beautiful, and I love the touch of color :love:
