"While I swim in my safe, little bubble,
While I wait in my solitary aquarium,
something unespectable comes all in a sudden
violently breaking the glass.
You, are you offering the love?
What should I do?"


Here I am with a new drawing! This time, a mermaid again. The story is about something that suddenly comes in and shakes (in a good or bad way) your previous peaceful, monotone life. What will you do? Will you accept the offering? Will you accept the new thing, the change?
I totally went back to my lovely color pencils: no watercolors this time. The drawing has a long story: I made a first drawing with the same concept, but during the coloring process something went wrong, the picture was ruined and so I was forced to threw it away. I had to start a new drawing...and this is the final result. It has been a very hard prove for my patience. I'm very happy with my color pencils!
I used a reference picture for the mermaid's pose.

I am going to say that I have never seen someone do such a good job with colored pencils. I can't do this good with them if my life depended on it. XD

But try to search on dA, there are awesome, awesome color pencil artists...they are my inspiration. If I could suggest some, check `Hellobaby and ~Pevansy , they both work with color pencils and their works are gorgeous :heart:

I have a color pencil work in my gallery, but I wasn't the one who made it. Rather, it was an idea I had that I commissioned a friend of mine to draw, which he thankfully did, and with awesome results. Even better is the fact that I only came up with the idea for the look. He's the one who did the actual drawing and improvising of the look. XD

yes, I saw it! :la: Lovely sword design :)
I wish I could draw too good weaponry or fantasy stuff like armors, outfits etc.

I wish I could do more than just graphite pencil drawings of swords and other inanimate objects. I wish I could draw complex stuff like Guns, which unfortunately I don't know enough about to design my own, and people, which I just can't seem to do. XD

I think you can start from reference pictures of basic gun models. Then you can add more details to them and customize your weapon. Design is very difficult (I wish I could draw good design too), but observation and exercise are the two best things to improve and get better :)

IllEatYourself Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The problem is, I don't know much about how guns work, so I couldn't design my own. I know enough about swords to design them, and I wouldn't need to know much to at least design some cool ones anyway, but guns are a different story. XD
