Shadows of the Past by SerenaVerdeArt Shadows of the Past by SerenaVerdeArt
AH!
So, I managed to finish my entry for *Bobbaji's contest before the deadline :D which is kinda miraculous, since I was almost going to give up on the picture, at some point...

Coloured pencil on A4 paper, plus some white gouache here and there for highlights

The walk-trough can be found on my Tumblr as always [link]

Very nicely done. Love the tones and color palette that you used for this image. Good inclusion of small details, and i just love the rendering of the face, especially the eyes and lips. All the shadows of the small twigs and branches on the character is the icing on the cake. it gives a good sense of inclusion, as in actually being in the woods.

Keep up the fine work! I'll fave this, not only because it is a really great piece of art, but also so I can come back and look at your gallery in depth when I have the proper time to do so! :nod: :D

wow....the idea is kinda simple , but your technique is incredible ! this is one of the best pencil colored drawings I've seem on DA...I'm usually not a fan of colored pencil works because most of what I see doesn't have much solid colors but this one....congratulations , I hope you win the contest AND a DD....
though I frankly don't think it will come as a DD...I still finde that it's missing something =/ the idea I mean ^^" the drawing "coud say more"

Thanks a lot!
That's quite true what you said about the picture, while I really wanted to find an interesting idea for the contest, I realized I was slowly running out of time... so I just decided to use one of the concepts I already had in mind, even though it was pretty linear in its relation with the subject of the contest... I'd say I just wanted to participate with something like this rather than miss the contest at all XD
About DDs, I must admit I have greater expectations for them, I don't think this should meet the requisites even "technically" speaking o.o but than again, that's just me being picky XD
