Cygnus Fantasy by kelch12 Cygnus Fantasy by kelch12
Influenced by my childhood memory of "Saint Seiya" (a Japanese anime), I am deeply in love with greek mythology and constellation. This time, I was inspired by the beauty of my youthful friend, Vanessa, so I had to capture the image I had in mind and put down on paper. It has been a joyful experience for the past 12 days of making. I hope I've done her beauty justice. :)

If you like this, be sure to favorite it and leave me your thoughts because I love to read them. :)

Pencil: 4H, 2H, HB, 2B, & 4B
Paper: 11x14 Strathmore 300 Bristol Vellum
Other: kneaded eraser, brush (for hair and wing only)
Duration: 05/15/2012 ~ 05/26/2012

This is really great! The whole drawing seems to glow. I can see your your pencil strokes, but they blend together so well that the lines add to the drawing in my opinion. It might look better if you could get some deeper shadows into the roses? I know it's tough with graphite.

Thanks for your comment. The roses are a bit underwork due to the lack of interest at that moment in time of drawing :P

I think maybe if we put some shadow of the armlet on her arm, that could be even better.
