I've always been fascinated by human forms, and that's the reason I'm into portraiture and figure drawing. This piece is inspired by Marcus Ranum's (a.k.a. `mjranum on dA) stunning photo. It reminds me so much of "Venus de Milo" hence the title of this piece. I hope my drawing did the model justice.

Fave/Like/Share/Comment. I would love to hear your feedback about my work so I can improve in the future. Thank you!

Yes, THIS is art! A drawing of the human body, the shading, the curve, the muscle, the light! This is nude art, not just taking a photo of a naked girl.

This is absolutely exquisite pencil work.

I especially love how you captured the delicate texture of the draped fabric and the overall beautifully soft lighting throughout.

Very sexy and very beautiful. It almost looks like that the Ancient Greek that made the original statue made her as well.

I'm looking at this and I am going like, is this realy done by a pencil? The detail and lighting is just so real, it has to be a photo. But perhaps the grannyness hides the hints of pencil work, I don't know. But it is looking real good. She has a fairly nice pose and a nice form. With the cloth there, it does make me think of Greece or Roman statues and goddesses.
