Black Pearls + Colourful Beauty

Beautiful reference: link

Not so long ago I went and bought some new colours, particular turquoise and orange/yellow colours and I don't have a whole lot of these. I've never been very fond of turquoise but lately I've started to see the colour differently. I wanted to branch out from the typical Zindy colours, if you can call it that. It's no secret I love pink, baby blue and basically all lighter pastel colours.
At the beginning of the year when I did With Love and Breathe in Breathe out, I realised how much more dramatic/powerful a drawing can get with brighter colours.

This one I've been working on and off on for nearly 3 weeks. It took a very long time creating the details + I haven't been much in a drawing mood lately. There's been much going on occupying me this month so it does feel nice to have some completed drawings finally.

My second drawing is one I did today. I was very determined this morning, to do a new colourful drawing, using turquoise again. I've gotten a few requests to do a shaped woman and it was nice to actually give it a go. I wanted her to have a beautiful strong face. So many girls (and boys) struggle with weight, sometimes it can feel like an endless battle.

Both drawings are done with colour pencils on Lana sketch paper.

WoW, beautiful! Yay for turquoise and yay for shapely girls! =) Both drawings are gorgeous as your works always are.

P.S: I think about you a lot lately. XD I just started reading a huge book (A Song of Ice & Fire) and your bookmark reminds me where to start reading again. =D

zindy! both are gorgeous, but i loved the second one! it´s so nice to see shape instead of skinny girls ( and i don´t just say that, i am kinda skinny, can´t get fatter... hehe). great job on the colors and pose! it´s funny how in the thumbnail it looks like she´s looking up left and when you zoom it you see that she´s looking right into you. beautiful drawing! by the way, i have a blog and feel free to visit: have you ever drawn from life? you explore poses well, i think you should try, it´s really nice!
