Broken Wings by Zindy Broken Wings by Zindy
This is a drawing I did in December. I really fell for the emotions showed in the latest submissions of :iconfaestock:, I love creating artwork based on her emotional face. This is one of the finished one, I have more in the same serie to come.
She has these bold beautiful features which are wonderful to portray. I gave my girl blonde hair and brown eyes as I have been wanting to do this combination for a while now. I feel quite happy with the outcome of this one. I wanted the slight frustration to show, without it being overdone or too sad. Like these small mistakes you do in life which is not lifechanging but still makes you feel a bit bad.
I had my doubts about the background. The obvious choice would be to do a grey darker background but I felt I wanted to do a light blue one instead to lift up the mood of the drawing. I am not sure if it would have been more suitable with a dark one but somehow when I look at the drawing I feel like this is how it should be, fitting or not.

A big thanks to Jessica for a beautiful face: [link]

shes so pretty, I love the title, just like that song "my broken wings still dtrong enough to cross the ocean with..." and it has a meaning, like, what you said the small mistakes you do in life make you feel bad... I like the mixture of color you did in the face, the shadeing is perfecto! And You have a unique style that looks soo real!

This one is definitely one of my faves from you: the facial expression is so unique... I like the mix of a magical feel and a most real, humane expression in fact.

It looks great I wish I could draw hair as good as you! :) a darker background would look great too but I agree with you that the blue background fits perfectly!
