Bitter Morning by Misted-Dream Bitter Morning by Misted-Dream
Ah, finally finished this one! This is my first drawing I made for my Drawing II class. It's kind of my first drawing of my "Antlered Kings" series. Not much to say about this one, other than it took waaaay longer than I thought it would've. Oh, and sorry for the title. My mind's apparently lacking in creativity at the moment.

Mechanical pencil on smooth (yes, I got some smooth paper this time!) Bristol board, 11" X 14". References thanks to the WetCanvas RIL. Oh man, time? Who knows! I wouldn't be surprised if it was around 14 hours or more.

SOLD

Great series. Blown away that you don't use refs for much of your work... Watching for more!

Thank you! I'm trying to use more refs nowadays so I can improve better and get the realism I want, but it's fun to challenge yourself every once in a while.

Wow, what an excellent piece. The hair looks real and he has such a regal look to him. The antler texture and overall lighting looks so realistic! Great job!

Beautiful!!! :D I'm like stalking all of your drawings and studying them haha Oh and another question- do you worry about people using/stealing your art? I'm nervous to upload anything I have.

Lol, thank you very much! :aww: Yes, that concern is always in the back of my mind, but that's why watermarks are nice. Regardless of what you do, unfortunately, there will always be those out there who just want to rip you off; that's the nature of the business--art theft can almost be expected. However, there are also good people out there who will inform you of such things so that you can take appropriate action. Those same people also have your back and will be willing to defend your ownership of the art. Basically, the way I see it, the benefits of showing your art to the world far outweigh the risks. :)

Mist effect is beautifully executed. You have come a long way compared to your 2008 uploads, and in a very short time I might add! Keep it up trooper. And thank you for the watch :)

Thank you very much! I've noticed that as well, lol. I looked back on those not too long ago and realized how nasty most of them look compared to stuff I'm making now. Hopefully that progress will continue! And you're very welcome. :)
