“For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I started this somewhere in december 2011 and haven't worked on it until last week. Finally, I finished it. This time I didn't focused on drawing realism, because I knew that if I would set that goal, I would be somehow disapointed. I still tried, but not in a way as in my usual drawings.

The hardest part was definitly the guy. Why?
1. I usualy don't draw guys.
2. they both have smaller face than my usual drawings (which I need to practice on).
3. he's not an average guy you see in real life (Well, maybe some of you can see through guys?) I had too keep in mind what parts of the bg should be lighter or darker etc.
and 4. I did use a reference but tried to alter the looks of the guy...why? Because I based this of a reference of Robert Pattinson hehe... I did not want a celebrity in this drawing, but this reference had the exact right expression and position and I couldn't find any other reference. I tried my best to make it not look like Robert, but still have the same kind of expression.

Also I'm too impatient to draw trees:shakefist: I imagined this scene with a snowy tree background...I kind of regret that I decided to go with it

Tools:
-B, 3B, 8B
-Tissues, blending stumps
-erasers
-Smooth A4 Paper

references:
the girl: [link]
The guy: based on this [link]
Trees: [link]
Coats: random google references

Feedback is appreciated :heart:

I will try to enhance the realism of the guy, once I'll find out how

the trees on the background looks so real! And that transparency effect is awesome, it's something really hard to manage with traditional instruments... And the composition is really amazing! :D well done, i really loves this piece!

I think it has a lot to do with his nose, how it is kind of flat and how light falls upon it accordingly. Also something about the curling of his lips, I believe...

You're very welcome!

Thanks! It was indeed very diffrent and I'm really happy to hear that because this is the kind of art I want to do. Not precisely like this (I think) but something of this kind. I still need to practice alot though before I continue making stuff like this:shakefist:

Although I can tell you're most use to drawing women, you didn't do a bad job on the guy, he looks good. And over all, I think that the drawing leaves a real impact after looking at it because, at least for me, it immediately made me think of losing someone and wishing their spirit was there to hold me. Fantastic job!!
