Behind greyness by Thubakabra Behind greyness by Thubakabra
I tried drew on a grey paper. I need more experience, I guess. :)
A3, graphite tools

I used this beautiful vintage photo: thubakabra.deviantart.com/art/…
Thanks for the uploader!

In regards to your mentioning of the use of grey backdrop, our highlight/shadow application has no faults from my perspective. I do greatly enjoy your vintage source and recreation. Very inspiring; I'm trying to feta back into portrait compositions myself.

I think you used the grey paper quite well to create an atmospheric and ethereal portrait. The swirls of hair are another great touch.

Lovely. tha hair looks very realwhich is always a bugger with pencil.  Also you managed to convey the sadness or hurt in her eyes that is alsovisible in the picture

All of your portraits are amazing, but you've really caught some magic with this one.  She has a very enigmatic expression, and her face just glows.  Can you give any more detail about the paper and the "graphite tools"?  You have inspired me to try something like this.

Such perfection! You managed this soft sort of sensual appearance without the delicate tones that usually are used. Bravo!

Wow! Your choice to use white only on the face creates a great sense of depth, and makes her seem especially luminous and otherworldly.

This is an awesome interpretation of the photo. You captured her face very well, but changed the mood by using the grey paper and giving her another haircut. Looks just beautiful.
