Drawing of Irina Filonenko by DantesLP Drawing of Irina Filonenko by DantesLP
"Drawing of Irina Filonenko"
Graphite on mat paper, 8" x 11", (20 x 27 cm)

Her words: - "Please believe in yourself, love, do not be afraid, be free, take a chance. You see, life is such a thing, that like you here a young, young, young, and then bang - and an end. Look back and think about how much is not done because he was afraid, embarrassed, scared. No need to be afraid of anything. Play it safe. Even if you make a mistake. This is life. Most importantly, of course, love one another. Always, every minute."

"This drawing was started in August 2011. I drew it for a year and graduated in August 2012. This year I learned a lot, but not able to bring this figure to perfection. Probably create such a beautiful, unique, and a pretty face can only Lord God."

"This drawing took me about 225 hours to draw, and so far it's not perfect... For me, at least."

I hope you enjoy.

do you use anything special for the white hairs or do you just work around those spots?

I'm always wondering how these artists do the blonde strands.. by erasing with a thin, firm eraser, or working around them.. really nice effect indeed

dear sir to be so in love and dedicated to a project as to spend an entire year with it and to still not be content with its amazement i say to you if i could only be so lucky to have such a curse. much like the ordinary wishing upon the star for extraordinary. absolutely gorgeous sir, and i hope you do well to never be satisfied for as Royo once if he was ever satisfied he would no longer have a reason to go to that place we all visit any longer when we feel the need to create and escape.
