This is REALLY REALLY good. I commend you.

Ink? Pencil? How did you come up with the idea?

I love the hands, they have an almost crows feet quality to them which just fits with the overall image.

Thanks! It's just regular pencil Daniel, and I drew it from a photograph on a website for free to use ref photos. I can draw from my imagination but I much prefer to have something in front of me to look at :)

It is fantastic, and hands are so hard to do well. You've done a good job of them. I agree with Potty that they have a claw-like quality to them that fits the image well.

Yeah I thought that escorial, glad you all like her :)

I think the poor girl needs some warm clothes and hot meal.

I think the detail, proportions and shading are excellent.

I think you are a very skilled artist.

I think I'm jealous.

This is a great drawing! As others mentioned, the hands are incredible. I also love the detail on the crown. Both the image and the name create curiosity in the viewer for a backstory-- the best kind of artworks carry this trait!

I like the mouth.
I beg your pardon ..... I am sorry ..... I don't like the eyes. They portray relaxation. I don't think evil people are relaxed. Maybe .... pardon me ..... you are an atheist. Maybe you did it that way deliberately!

She's not supposed to be evil!! Anguished maybe, but not evil!

She's very attractive. I like her nose. Not standard. Her expression looks like she's acting; not really in anguish but in character. The hand under the chin looks like a struggle. I would find that extremely difficult without a model. Probably, with a model.

Kevin I drew this using a reference photo taken by a photographer called Alex Lee Johnson (http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/profile/AlexLeeJohnson?xg_source=activity), on a website called Paint my Photo, you can see it here http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/photo/angelic
I presume the model was acting, or trying to come across a certain way.

This is an amazing drawing. Beautiful, great proportions, nothing amiss. She's not idyllic, but interesting, attractive, and feels very real. I like it.

Hope to see more of your art.

The devil is a "fallen" angel. Are you sure the title is appropriate?
An anguished person is not relaxed. She is frightened. She has large eyes. Staring, stationary eyes.

I take it as metaphor...like a 'lady of the night'... she could be past anguished... beat. Looks like a photo. Looks like the photo. :)

Misty Mirrors if you don't like it you don't have to look at it. The photograph that I worked from was entitled Angel, to me she looked troubled or lost, so I called my version Fallen Angel. I am not religious, this has no biblical connotations, it's just my interpretation of a photograph that I liked. Art is merely ones interpretation of what they see around them, your idea of anguish is obviously completely different to mine.

Hello Abby.
I think the drawing is very good. I like looking at it.
I think "Angel" is an appropriate title. "Fallen Angel" is not. LOL.

For me, I can definitely see why you call it Fallen Angel, Abby. Her expression and her body pose fits that title, for me. I didn't put a religious connotation to the name, as it doesn't seem to be a religious depiction. Perks of being the artist is that you can name your work whatever you wish. :)

Thanks Gumby :) Misty Mirrors, I'm sorry you don't like the title but it's my creation and I will call it whatever I want to call it! Fallen can be a lot of things, she may have fallen out of love or sinned in some way, the angel part refers to her headdress, and actually checking back I see the reference photo was called Angelic. She doesn't look angelic to me, she looks like a bit of a bad girl. Just because I have called the piece 'Fallen Angel' it does not in any way refer to the Devil...if I had called her Lucifer then maybe you would have a point!!
