Prepare your Heart by Kuume Prepare your Heart by Kuume
In this piece, I wanted to depict a deep feeling of caring and the yearning to protect loved ones from death, while facing its reality (the funeral flowers in her hair symbolize this).

I used mechanical pencil and pencils for this work. I've also cleared up the space around the character (and the face a little bit) in Paint Shop Pro, because it had some smudged areas and traces of removed elements that turned out impossible to erase. I could've fixed this problem by adding a background, but I didn't feel like making one anymore after something around 16 hours of working on this piece (another new record!). I felt very unhappy about the underlying sketch, as I forced myself to work on it even though I was dead tired, just because I was feeling a compelling need to express a concept.

Beautiful! Pencil might just be my favourite tool, I like all the textures in this. I wish this was my drawing. :D

Nää on aivan ihania kaikki nään sun kuvat! Valtavan yksityiskohtaisia ja mielikuvituksellisia ja kaikinpuolin mahdottoman upeita! Todella omaperäisia ja hirveän kauniita :) Ja uskomatonta, miten paljon tunnetta saa pelkällä mustavalkoisuudella ja kaikilla noilla kuvioilla ja muodoilla ja apua, en osaa sanoa oikein sen enempää :) Todella taitavaa valon ja varjon käyttöä ja apua. Todella hienoja :heart: !
