My oh my your awesome. It looks so real I only wish I could get there. I love to draw, but get so upset with myself because I like ultra realistic things and I have no ideal how to do it. I guess I shoudl be happy with the talent God has given me.
With these close-ups, the drawing must be somewhere around 2100x1440 and therefor quite large. I just wanted to hear you, if it's possible for you to make it a print? I don't know if there are any rights that belongs to somebody besides you, since it's a book cover.
But if you DO make a print out of it, you already got one buyer!
This close up is telling the whole story amazingly. You take a look at her eyes and emotion she holds at that very moment. Then you see her passion for whatever reason that she holds the grenade to protect something. Then you see the danger that she is in with the beams aimming for her and wonder who she is up against.
I realise these are just parts from the whole image, but this triptych is absolutely beautiful and tells the story in a very real sort of way- it puts you BAM right there in your face, and it's absolutely gorgeous. Her expression is so heartbroken and heartFELT I could cry. Absolutely amazing.
I am no artist when it comes to drawing or anything along those lines, but what I can say is you did a mind blowing job on capturing her emotions! I look at so much work here on DA and all over the world and I have to say this is one the best so far. Absolutely amazing job...Congratulations on such an amazing piece.
