She Waits Still by Quaddles-Roost She Waits Still by Quaddles-Roost
May the love hidden deep inside your heart find the love waiting in your dreams.
May the laughter that you find in your tomorrow wipe away the pain you find in your yesterdays.

My first attempt that I`ve actually successfuly finished in the week given for :iconcreatebyweek:`s contest week 13. (Darn my intricate penwork why cannot I do manips like a sensible entrant?
Original stock photo I used for reference can be found in :iconhelly-stock:`s gallery Thanks :wave:
Drawn from reference photo [link] with Staedtler pens - 1.0, 0.7 and 0.5 - Derwent Inks & Softcolour Pencils
Original size is 7.5" x 8" on watercolour paper
Created July 2007

Please note that although based on the stock image this is a TRADITIONALLY HAND-DRAWN & PAINTED picture and is not a photo-manipulated other than in my mind of course Yes I still haven`t managed to get a manip programme let alone have time to learn, mind you in hours spent on this today...

EDIT Re-scanned Feb `11 as old scanner was pants :)</sup>

Such a tender piece overall, and I really love the care you dedicated to the details. The black inked surface details to the land and the colored you worked with is very well done (and interesting to boot).

This is absolutely beautiful. The colors mesh together so very well. I love the purple sky and how you painted the hills. This is a fine painting, you have great talent!

If you don't mind me asking do you use the ink first and then overwork with the pen?
Reply
:iconquaddles-roost:
Quaddles-Roost Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Nope I don`t mind, nice to have an interest shown :D
Did a sketchy outline in pencil, then outlined a few places with waterproof pen then used derwent inktense pencils (like watercolour pencils but give vibrant ink instead) then a fineliner- if I remember correctly its the way I usually work with landscapes

Sephifire Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2010
thats pretty good. I prefer the inks from the pots not the pencils. I love the landscape is really moody. I do a lot of pen drawing so its nice to see someone else using pen really well.

I only use ink from bottles upstairs in my craft room, do have a tendency to make a mess - usually I draw downstairs though unless son isn`t sleeping on my craft room floor when home from uni

Well atm I do everything at my desk and I could not even be doing artwork and somehow I get paint or ink all over me. I am off 2 uni next month so it will be the same but at a different desk. I do have an A5 sketchbook and a pen that I have with me all the time though.
