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 :)

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!
