'The sun was setting.
Darkness began to shroud the landscape, like a creeping void poised to devour everything in it's path.
The last rays of sunlight bouncing off her soft skin, flushing her cheeks to a rosy pink.
She raised her hand to her mouth, gently touching her lips with her delicate fingertips.
They were cold, as icy as the water trickling in the stream below.

A chill came over her body and she shuddered for a moment.
She knew this sunset would be her last.
He was gone forever, and no one was going to save her....'

This is the companion piece to this one:



Ultra-fine Sharpies and medium Sharpie pen on plain 8.5 x 11 paper. Comments greatly appreciated, thanks!

Thanks! :D That really means a lot. I was going to add a few more pieces, but I had to put them in a different folder because the Sharpie one wasn't available in the drop down menu.

Check the very bottom of the list, I have a lot of folders, so you have to scroll down.  If it's still not there let me know, please. :(

Oh yes, I saw the folder in the group. It just wouldn't allow me to contribute to it when I hit 'contribute art' on the main page. It wasn't a folder option. May be an issue with a setting or something minor like that. It happens in my group as well sometimes. DA can be screwy, lol.

I finally got the chance to look at this one too. I love how all your art has a concept behind it; i mean all art does in a sense, but yours has like a whole story behind it. Also 8.5x11 ftw! :3 We iz like Sharpie art twinz :3

:icongraffitica:
graffitica Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome, thanks! :) Not all of my art has a concept, but a good portion does. All of my stuff is drawn randomly, so the finished product is just as much a mystery to me as it is to anyone else, lol. I only use plain copy paper, nothing fancy. Sharpie twinz! :highfive:

You're welcome! I hardly see (if any) of those pesky dark overlap marks that I always get. I call that mastering it.

:icongraffitica:
graffitica Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Just a lot of time and patience is all. :) That, and using ultra-fines instead of fine tip ones helps a lot to get that smooth finish instead of the sketchy overlaps.

BobbittTheHobbit Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I have patience sometimes. :D And yeah, I have a boat load of fine tip sharpies, so might as well use them! Maybe I'll invest on ultra-fine next time.

Thank you! :D means a lot coming from such an awesome artist like yourself!

I've been doing the 'puzzle piece' background technique for a long time. A typical piece for me takes 10 to 12 hrs, but some have taken me 15+ depending on how intricate the shading is. This one took only 8hrs or so. :)
