Childhood by sisko87 Childhood by sisko87
Watch in FULL view! ;)

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

(MJ - Childhood :heart:)

Done!
I'm getting better at using my color pencils, and I'm really proud of myself for getting this drawing done :D

nuh uh you did not use color pencils for this........like can you smear with them.....and the way you do the eyes and the lips are really good....i dont know how to draw like the different highlights and stuff...you know wat im gonna add you for a watch

sisko87 Featured By Owner May 7, 2009
I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils, and yes - you can smudge a little with them as well. The eyes and lips are just something you've got to practice to get control over - I don't think I have control just yet, but I might get there some day. That's what art is all about, you learn by doing ;) I never knew how to draw highlights or shadows either, untill I started to study the light in the ref. photo - but you could just think: light on one side, means shaddow on the other side (know what I mean?)
Thank you so much for the watch :hug:

That looks great! Did you use water to soften the pencil marks, because it still looks like regular pencil crayons. Love the expression you managed to capture.

Although the whole piece is gorgeous, I adore the red color of her hair. So vibrant, and full of life. Like kids, I suppose! :D
