Beloved by Elena-Ciolacu Beloved by Elena-Ciolacu
I wanted to practise with painting skin in softer shades. I liked the idea and planned to add colour at the end but then I thought it would distract a bit from the message (and I also suck at colours XD )

I like how he's helping her comb her hair, especially since it would be such a tedious task for a girl in her condition

Wow. This is incredible (and somewhat disturbing, but also beautiful).

Is this an image from one of the Gimm Brothers stories? And I really like how you did the shading, its beautiful but the image is so sad. Well done!

Thank you! no it's not from any of their stories, it's just an image that I imagined. Yes, it is kind of sad but it also has a glimpse of hope in it, because the love of her husband is there to comfort her :)

You're welcome and oh I see. I was just wondering because there was a story about a girl with no hands (got them cut off) that I read recently. And yeah that's good she has him.

Oh wow... the Brothers Grimm wrote such a story O.o ? I guess I've only been exposed to the mild part of their fantasy literature :P

Um let me see it was tittled "The Girl with No Hands" it was a rather freaky story but interesting to some point. And yeah from what I've read they had some messed up stories but I'm also reading the "Philip Pullman Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm New English version"

It's beautiful!
You made the right decision with the black and white.
Where did you get the idea for it?
It reminds me of the movie Boxing Helena, the proud woman and the obsessed man who loves her.

Nu stiu daca-ti dai seama, dar ai inceput sa prinzi inertie de ceva vreme. Acum nah, depinde si de fiecare cum invata. Eu lucrez si invat in valuri - cand am 1 luna, doua de invatat, cand una, doua de lucrat.

Apropo, nu ti-am mai zis nimic de vazutul ala de acum vreo 2 saptamani pentru ca n-am mai avut timp. Atat de "n-am avut timp" incat era sa pierd si autocarul spre avion :rofl: Odata ce-ajung acolo, si daca termin cu un anumit proiect pana la data aia, ne putem vedea si impartasi ce-am invatat fiecare ;P

da? pai chiar parca simt si eu, numai ca la mine fucntioneaza valurile in sensul de o luna desenez apoi doua sufar in agonie de blocaj artistic si lipsa de energie

Nu-i bai, nu-ti face griji ca ne intalnim noi cand avem timp amandoi ^^ eu chiar am ce invata de la tine, si poate reusesc sa te invat si eu cate ceva :P
