Ismene by Saimain Ismene by Saimain
A commission for *Opheliaque, featuring her beautiful character Ismene and a nature-inspired harp. :) Done with pencil and colored pencil, though the scanner really chewed up the contrast and color.

very nice work i like the detail you have put in the colors are great.

Can i ask how long it took you from start to finish.
do you usually rough sketch before you start on the final design?

This took a very long time to finish, off and on. And yes, certainly! I always start with a rough sketch and hash everything out, figure out details and composition and pose, before I finalize and clean up the lineart. Thank you for asking. :)

How did you manage to get your lineart to look so opaque? Mine always went silver but I'm assuming that you used a mechanical pencil to outline it? Love the minute details like her freckles:D

I have been a fan of the Celtic Harp thanks to the gifted and talented Orla Fallen from Celtic Woman. I was very much drawn to this peice for that reason as well as my Irish heritage. It is just a beautiful drawing that is just amazing and spectacular.
