As in a fairytale by Angelstorm-82 As in a fairytale by Angelstorm-82
EDIT: The colours in the previous version were to intense and to dark. This is how it looks in real. More or less. It´s always tricky to get good results from your scanner :lol:.

This was so much fun to do. I always enjoy working with colours so my next one is a coloured portrait too ;).

This is the actress Imogen Poots. I drew this completely with my Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencil on A3 Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchpaper with 190 gsm.

I worked approx 5 days on this with several hours per day.

Hope you guys like it.

Here are some other related pics:

This is beyond great! Your style is incredible. I was wondering if you would let me upload some of your works into my FB community page (Into the Lifestream), I would like to make certain emphasis in certain pieces of arts from several people on the internet, but of course, it would mean a lot to have permission from the authors and creators of such works.

If you grant me permission, of course I would credit you and provide the link to the images here in your DA space.

Ich habe nicht Studiert. Was Kunst angeht habe ich mir alles selber beigebracht plus eine gehörige Portion Talent da ich das schon mit Jungen Jahren herrausragend konnte.

Dann kann ich zur Verteidigung meiner Machwerke nur noch sagen, dass ich erst mit 45 oder 46 meine Kreativität aus jungen Jahren wieder rausgekramt habe.
