Miss_DJ (Jan 26, 2010)
great texture!!
elly (Jan 26, 2010)
thx, bmw! There's something really bothering me about the (our) left eye but I can't put my finger on it...
backmagicwoman (Jan 26, 2010)
I'm not sure seems fine to me..but I know how that can be when it's someone elses picture...:)

This looks so cool.. you did a great job on all those veiny lines... I wish the eyes were the same as the bright spot on the forehead(with veins too)... or that maroon color of the veins... but I'll shutup :D I love it too.

creepy great!
elly (Jan 26, 2010)
Maybe I'll change the eyes just for you, lori, cuz you ROCK! =) Thanks, y'all!

Very eerie drawing... brrr. :D.

I am no eye expert, by far, but it looks to me like the eye near the tear-duct is tilted a bit to far inward. Or as if we are seeing something that normally would be hidden when the head is in that position. Makes sense?
elly (Jan 26, 2010)
Yes, makes sense, enjoy. Maybe her eye was knocked out of socked when she was beat up? lol! j/k..I keep going back to the lower and/or outter side of that eye but maybe it is the tear duct area....??? hmmmm

HOW Do you do texture so well!?!? Nyah! I wish I could have drawn this. It's freaky, creepy, fairly disturbing, which means I LOVE IT. Unfortunately I can only draw on notebook paper :( Fantastic job, Elly!
TumblingUpwards (Jan 26, 2010)
I see what you mean about the eye/tear duct area but I wouldn't change it. The textures are brilliant, I love so much about this drawing its hard to know where to start. The lips are almost mangled looking as if she's been silenced in a brutal moment. Insane beauty!

I see this as an old portrait coming "alive". It would make a great book cover for the novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray
If I were to change anything on it, I'd tone down the neck or cover it all together. But this is a real nice surprise from you, Elly!
firecracker (Jan 26, 2010)
Wow.....this is really kind of a creepy spooky draw, and I really like how you used textures. Did you use the texture tool at all on this....or are these all your own textures. Awesome draw!! :)
elly (Jan 27, 2010)
No, fire, i used my own texturing rather than the tool on this one. Thanks for asking, and thank you for your comment! I appreciate yours and all the other's!

OWWW,SO SPOOKY!horriblely beautiful.-like you were in the morgue with Jody Foster,you can even smell it.good illustration for "Twilight" or "Stephenie's body,"yeah,or "Dorian Gray".

(ok,you wanta be picky about the eyes,it's that one,the right hand one,is slightly higher than the other,wheras in a three-quarter view,the right hand one would be slightly lower(I think).Or else,the right hand eye appears somewhat larger than the left. I think,the latter.However,with this amt. of obscured picture,with effects,it's tricky to tell.Is that what you mean?you wanted to be picky,not me,I love the picture.)
TumblingUpwards (Jan 27, 2010)
I've come back for another look, I'm fascinated by this and I do see the issue with the eye on the right now that it has been pointed out but, I don't think its worth sweating over. The thing DorothyBE said about being in the morgue with Jody Foster hit it right on the head, I could not put my finger on what this reminded me of until she said that. I'm still amazed by that texture, sheer perfection!
elly (Jan 28, 2010)
Thanks, dorothybe&Tumbling..people tell me I'm a perfectionist....yet, I never see 'perfection' in my work! I guess that's the reason I haven't been cured of 'perfectionalism' LOL!! I may go back and work on this some more after I've gazed upon it longer...thx for the comments and your opinions!!! Y'all rock!
Flubbles (Jan 28, 2010)
Sometimes i like trying to be a perfectionist but it's fun to leave some imperfections now and again and stop being so anal about things.
elly (Jan 28, 2010)
I see you as a perfectionist pretty much all of the time in your work, flubbles....and sometimes being anal isn't all that bad =p (o) LOL!
Flubbles (Jan 28, 2010)
I bet you love a bit of backdoor bertie.
elly (Jan 28, 2010)
...maybe =p
Suntan (Jan 28, 2010)
It looks stained from years of something embedded on it. Very different from you and I like the faint texturing, like an old fresco painting. :)
elly (Jan 28, 2010)
Thanks, Sunny! You're always so that about you!
vlad.the.hamster (Jan 28, 2010)
Nice! Those textures are awesome.
elly (Jan 29, 2010)
Thanks, vlad.!
Moosh (Jan 29, 2010)

bette_davis_eyes (Jan 29, 2010)
