You solved the problem with the missing eye very well, by drawing her face in profiel. She is beautiful. Like I said earlier, you are an artist you know.
My daughter Kirsten find it also a very beautiful drawing. Glad you shared your drawings with us.

Kirsten and Rozette Very Happy Very Happy

That's one of your best yet, Daniella. Very good work. And I like that there are no creepy spiders crawling on her face. Very Happy

That sounds like something Homer Simpson would say. Are you a follower of the tenets and teachings of the Great Homer?

What do you do with all of your wonderful sketches? I think you should frame some of them. Your Nefertiti is particularly splendid.

Thank you. Very Happy Well, right now I'm keeping them in my portfolio that I bought from the ED shop (the black one, it's gorgeous), but actually last night I was thinking about framing Nefertiti, after I make some improvements on it though.

I'll be working on a painting soon, I just need a few more materials...... like paint? Rolling Eyes Laughing I'm really nervous about it. I'm a perfectionist and if it doesn't turn out perfect on the first try, I'll throw a temper tantrum and won't try again......aren't I a peach? Embarassed Laughing

Daniella did you use papyrus for this painting?
And why are you not impressed?
I must admid that the photo of your painting isn't very clear but it looks very well painted to my Very Happy .
Hope to see more of your work in the future.

I think they're great, Daniella, and thanks for sharing them with us. I like how the paint turned out on the papyrus. You should be proud of them. I admire you artist types.

Next thing, you'll be making your own papyrus to paint on. Very Happy

Yes, I used papyrus that I bought from the ED shop and I'm not impressed because I thought that the colours are too flat and chalky, I don't know if it's the type of acrylic paint that I used or what, but I thought that the end result might have been a little more glossy.

Thanks. I think I'm going to do some more, but I'll paint actual tomb scenes.

Yeah, all I need to do is to go to Egypt and cut down the reeds myself.
No, I have more papyrus sheets though from a notepad that I got for free when I bought the portfolio from the shop. The 12 sheets it came with are a really great size, about 20cm X 30cm and some of them are incredibly thick. And they smell really good. Very Happy

Very Happy They are really beautiful Daniella, its lovely that you've used papyrus.
I wish I had an ounce of yours and Anneke's drawing talents but I'll just stick to admiring the work of you guys.

Keep them coming Very Happy

I like your painting Daniella. Very Happy

Have you thought about adding some gold colored accents?

I use a gold colored calligraphy pen for that. They are metallic and they have a bit of shine to it but not too much so that it's a nice subtle effect. The pens are available from craft stores and are not too expensive (under 5 dollars).

ANd feel free to completely ignore me, but often in the drawings in the original tomb scenes, they continue the jaw line a bit beyond the neck. (Yours stops at the throat). I noticed in my own paintings that continuing the jawline a bit gives a slightly different effect.

I tried to put them in on the computer to show you the effect:



Here's an example of it in one of my drawings:

I did. Embarassed I actually bought gold paint and it looks really nice in person.

Yeah, I actually thought about using a pen at first but I figured that paint would be much easier and cheaper.













I can do better.
