Soft Hypnosis by kelch12 Soft Hypnosis by kelch12
Soft Hypnosis

Hypnosis is "a trance state characterized by extreme suggestibility, relaxation and heightened imagination." It is a mental state (according to "state theory") or imaginative role-enactment (according to "non-state theory"). It is usually induced by a procedure known as a hypnotic induction, which is commonly composed of a long series of preliminary instructions and suggestions. Hypnotic suggestions may be delivered by a hypnotist in the presence of the subject, or may be self-administered ("self-suggestion" or "autosuggestion"). (from Wikipedia.com)

Have you ever been hypnotized? When was the last time you found yourself couldn't take your eyes of someonne or something so fascinating? We all have moment like this when we're in love with that special something or someone. Can you feel it?

Critique by velocity07 Jan 17, 2012, 12:28:00 PM
When I first caught sight of this I thought it was a black-and-white photo, which just goes to show how fantastic of an artist you are.

The hair is perfectly textured. I feel as though I can reach out and touch it, and run my fingers through it. The eyes look, well, hypnotic. They seem to tell a story, to beg the viewer to look into her soul and find something inside of her that she's been keeping hidden. Such emotion is rare to find within drawings.

The lips are sensual, their slight openness suggesting (to me) either a desire to speak or a suppressed smile, and the shading of the skin - as well as that of the blouse - is flawless. The dark/light contrast guides the eye from one point to the next and makes the drawing come together as a whole.

The only thing I can think of to criticize is the unoriginality. I've seen quite a few drawings like this - not many with the same level of realism, but many with the same concept. That said, however, this stunning piece of art holds its own, and I am delighted to have happened upon it.
What do you think?

how do you use the brush for the hair?
Reply

kelch12 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
The brush served as a helper only. I still drew with my 2B pencil and then use a camel hair brush to spread the extra graphite a little bit to the white spaces, to cast some tone so I don't over work the hair. Check out "5 Pencil Method" on Youtube for more tips about the technique. :)

If you want to achieve realism, try to use "edge to value" instead of "line" to convey a shape. You would use a range or value to suggest controur. Keep your stroke tight together and take notes of your stroke pressure. Check out the "5 Pencil Method" on Youtube :)
