Dark Hope

I am happy to finally be able to show the finished version of Dark Hope. It’s been some journey but most of it was great even if my patience got tested more than once, specially doing the stage of creating the corset. It’s really a lot of detail going into this piece. I must have used about 1.5 black colour pencil in total as it’s really build up by many layers to achieve the right depth and darkness. I think it’s among my deeper drawings, along with Lost Dreams. In a way I put this drawing in the same category style wise and the overall feel, which might be why it’s one of my more important drawings.

The girl is Lisa, a girl from an artforum, who was one of the winners of my Butterfly Contest ’10. It lead me to her site where I found this photo speaking loudly to me. After a little over a month of work I had the drawing completed.
