A Memory by Saimain A Memory by Saimain
My long-overdue end of a trade with Dorothy, featuring her character Jakov reminiscing about the past. Roses play a large role in her work, and each of her vampires has a particular rose of his/her own, so I had to fit one in somewhere. Thanks for your patience, Dorothy! ^__^ Done in pencil.

The detail on the trees and the little ivy leaves are beautiful and really frame the picture well, and they meld with the background seamlessly, its lovely <3 I love the penseive look on the characters face (though I think his eyebrows may be frowning a little bit too much? When I'm lost in memory I know my facial muscles always go a little slacker creating a more blank face, but... maybe thats just me! :giggle:), and I think the nails are fantastic! Nails are really hard to draw (IMO), so I envy your skill, they turned out really nicely! Beautiful work :) :+fav:

have I ever said how much I adore your style of using the leaves as a kind of frame/border....if not, I do! It looks lovely!
Love the textures in this...his skin looks so smooth & the coat looks very real. (and heavy)
