Captured Gaze by genni Captured Gaze by genni
Medium: graphite
Tools: Staedtler Mars Lumograph Graphite pencils (HB-8B), kneaded eraser, illustration board, tissue paper
Size: 11X14"
Time: 7-8 hrs
Description: This is a drawing done from a combination of two photos I took of my sister and I. I really wanted to 'capture the viewers gaze' by creating an intense focus on the eyes. The title is a play on words in a sense. The gaze of my sister and I is essentially captured by the camera and then captured through my pencils, but hopefully our gaze, in turn, captures all of your gazes as well. I had fun with this one, the illustration board surface was pain and the camera didn't accurately pick up the correct shading tonal values so it's a bit warped compared to the original, but I'm happy with it.

You can see a WIP of this in my scraps as well

I was staring at the eyes for like an hour wondering why I suck so much at eyes compared to and then I saw the scarf and then I started hating you :)... but seriously this is really amazing

Love it. The scarf looks so real! At first glance I thought it was a photo. Nicely done.

the scarf is so awesome, the rest of the drawing aswell... but i find it more difficult to make a scarf look realistic than a person..

amazing.

your work is amazing- i had to enlarge the images to check if they were photographs or drawings, because the detail in the drawings is so spectacular!
