Melanie Thierry by Angelles-LaVeau Melanie Thierry by Angelles-LaVeau
***AS REQUESTED NEW HI RES SCANS FOR FINE DETAIL VIEWING - ENJOY***


I wanted an innocent look, a hint of mischief and even of evil, since Nature is evil - life and death, light and dark, beginnings and endings. When I saw this image of Melanie... it said all of those things!


Written permission from Melanie the same day that I received written permission from Gemma Ward - introduced to me by :iconsupremextreme: and Bryant McGill
Thanks to you BOTH for the introductions and thanks to Melanie and Gemma for being so cool and excited about it! You can see clips of conversation about the works on my MySpace account. Both models have been VERIFIED by MySpace. No bogus accounts or impersonators.

Finally i have free time to see your drawings; the higher resolution is always better (btw i'm still waiting to see "The Widow" on hi res as you promised on your post).

Indeed you got the innocence and the little naughty hint as parts of the same look, your skills allow you to make that, and that's excellent, i like your style because it feels so simple and natural, but with the implicit effort.

You manage very well the harmony in color, as in her hair, it's a great combination.

I like it, it's gorgeous. :clap: :heart:

Thank you very much!! The higher res files are stored on disks and many are in storage. I'll add the better files as I can find them. I may have a large print of it around here somewhere. In that case I'll just scan it and post that.

Never mind if you don't find it soon, don't worry.

If i may ask, how much time takes to you to make a beautiful drawing like this?.

The original is 13x19 inches. Depending on the complexity between 5 to 15 hours. Sometimes more. I use rulers and grids to keep the perspectives aligned, not with every drawing, but with many of them. I'm thinking of doing a "beginning to end" drawing to post on youtube. I've worked on pieces as long as 80 hours, but if memory serves me, this one took around 6.
