The Revival by Zindy The Revival by Zindy
This drawing symbolises all the good to come. The revival of happiness and joy, which I believe this spring will bring.
The past days has been sunny and rather warm, with that touch of early spring, I have been longing so much for. Just that certain feeling when you know things is going to be alright - it's priceless.
I used a picture of a girl who sent me her photo. I really liked her look so I used her as model for my drawing.

I made the drawing late last night. I have been working on only commissions since I returned home, did 4 pieces the past 2 days, which is crazy and made my hand hurt a bit. I was about to sleep when I finally felt the urge to just draw soemthing of my own. It's very bad lightening where I sleep these days so I could barely see what I was doing, but I feel happy with the drawing.

Made with soft coal.

I love the sense of hope and quiet strength in this picture. You put so much emotion and life onto paper with simple strokes of coal.
