Emergence by Lianne-Issa Emergence by Lianne-Issa
Well it is finally finished!

I have been working on this drawing for a very long time... on and off for about 3-4 months. It has been very hard to feel motivated recently. I have reached a plateau in my talent and i seem to be waiting for that special eureka moment that never comes. How do i improve? scouring the internet hasnt helped me so it is practice practice practice!

Thank you very much to :iconamanda-diaz: for allowing me to draw her beautiful photo of Ghost Girl [link] her gallery is amazing! be sure to check it out. I really hope she will allow me to draw some of her other photos! if i had my way i'd draw them all!!!!

The reason i loved this photo in particular is because it reminded me of awakening forest... my most favourited drawing [link] it is almost a view from the other side! I have called this version Emergence as this is how it feel to me. Emerging from the shadows and into the light. I hope i have improved since awakening forest. i have concentrated more on details than in the old days for sure

Let me know what you think :)

Lianne

When I first looked at this drawing I thought you had just taken a picture of someone and did some editing to it. And then I looked again and went, "DOH!" They drew it........ O.o amazing work this is definetly the first drawing that I thought was a photograph!

I know the plateau feeling. I feel I'm a little stuck as well. If you ever discover how to get over it, do let me know! (Although the obvious answer might be to try something different? A really different style or something? I don't know...)

Anyway, this drawing is very very beautiful and well worth your time spent on it!

i will do, it tough though. i remember a time when every drawing i produced was an improvement on the last, but now i have times when each one goes downhill massively. My early work was very popular but now i'm lucky if i get 200 faves on a piece (although i dont draw so many celebrities these days!) i am missing a trick somewhere but i'm sure i will figure it out! good luck with your own plateau :) x

Nice drawing! I know what you mean on hitting a plateau. I quit drawing this year and have just started back again. Have fun is the main thing on drawing.

Perfecto :iconclapplz: Lianne this is drawn so beautifully and I begin to understand the time taken with a work like this and I relate to your lack of motivation I have reached a plateau as well where I have to jump to another leval and I am hesitating and ask the same question how and can I improve, so My action is the same I can only practice and the other big problem is finding the time .As a matter of interest you are where I want to be sometime in my future and seeing your work has made me even more determined, as I have shared with a coupIe of other brillant DA artists I have so much to learn..but enough, thank you for sharing, hope you didnt mind me comparing and letting you know you are not alone in this struggle.. Your art is so very beautiful...anyways cu:iconcoolplz:Nev
will watch your future..
