The Girl in the Snow by trixxx The Girl in the Snow by trixxx
The more I see the less I know
The more I like to let it go

Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided by a world so undecided
And there's no way to go

In between the cover of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow
(part of a song by RHCP)

Just had this idea of doing snow and this is what came to mind.
Practice in textures/backgrounds and snow offcourse :)

A3 bristol vellum and mech pencils

Feel free to comment/critique or give tips. I would really appreciate it

Well, well, well... I thought that's any photo! But now I'm seeing, then it is the perfect pencil drawing. Great job! ^^


Shadowing- Your technique is amazing. The darkest places are really black and the lightist places (cup and eyes details) are clear... Shadowes and highlights are on right places and pattern on scarf is perfectly shadowed. May one little note- edge of upper lip is little bit sharper than it can be. But it is just little detail :)

Details- My admiration you have for the scarf, how I said. Perfect without any mistakes. The hair is too very detailed, just... In my opinion are snowflakes in hair too big and it's too regularly arranged. So it seem a little artificial ^^ The irises are very nicely done, light and dark parts. Just I'm missing some long and darker lashes. The girl must have pretty eyes bounded of black lashes ;)


I hope that you'll accept those little advices, but it was just a little triffle ^^
Have a nice day :)

I like how engaging this woman's expression is. The extra detail spent on the eyes are well spent. It's actually very hard to look away, and you wonder as you stare what it is she's thinking about. That's why the Vision and Impact ratings are high for this piece.

The detail in the scarf is a great secondary place of focus as well, and the fact that you have not otherwise overwhelmed the composition with too much detail means that your eye has a place to rest. Despite this, I believe that a little more detail in the hat may have helped integrate it a little better.

The empty space to the right is a choice that I appreciate, although some vague clue as to what she may be considering may have drummed up more interest and introspection on the part of the audience. It definitely would not be detailed, just a vague shadow in the snowfall. But that's a personal suggestion and preference, and if anything not following the natural inclination to want to fill every bit of space is a refreshing show of restraint.

Great work on this, and thank you for sharing!
