About my drawings
A lot of people ask me about how I do my drawings so I thought I would give a little explanation. Usually I have an idea of what I wish my drawing to show (mood and colours). Most of my ideas comes from my feelings and usually show themselves when I am out running or late at night just before I sleep. I have a lot of curled sheets of ideas on napkins, receipts etc - you should see my idea book - it's a mess.
I then either find a suitable pose (or take photos myself, with my model) which I can use as base and change up with colours, different clothing, flowers etc.
DA has a lot of fantastic stocks, both Gothic and fantasy related. I often use Fae-Stock and Liam-Stock as they go very well with the type of work I do.
Backgrounds are usually made out of memory, fx skies, trees, leaves etc. If I want new inspiration I study forest photos on google, then draw based of my memory of them, I usually never copy a photo ecaxt as I like the drawings to be original.
I really love the imaginary aspect of a drawing, to me it's the creative magical part of art.
This drawing is a perfect example of how I build up my drawings.
Hope this answered some of the many questions I have received about it.

Thanks for your amazing support ♥

Oh very pretty!!
I love how you don't explain the emotion, not only does it allow us to get our own perspective, but you're so good at expressing it, that we can already tell :)

Beautiful piece! The symbolism with the rose petals falling into the water, and her expression really conveys the mood and emotions of letting someone go. Thanks so much for sharing the process of how you create your works :)

I love the contrast between everything. The background being dark and her dress and the rose being so vibrant! Really well done!
