Winona by francoclun Winona by francoclun

A recent commission of my friend Crispin.
The beautiful Winona Rider in a photograph that makes her almost unrecognizable, but no less fascinating

This is unbelievable. As I read over your description, I saw the word 'photograph' and assumed that was what it was. I literally had to double take at this when I realised it was a drawing. You should be so proud of this. Outstanding work. I hope your future as an artist brings you much fame and fortune. I aspire to produce art half as good as this.

The composition of the piece is what really fascinates me. The delicate, soft feel of her hair, and the sharp focus in her eyes. This is so good, I can't rate it high enough!
What do you think?

Thanks a lot. Watercolor paper it's perfect for my stlyle: it's resistant to scratch and excellent quality (I use Fabriano and Arches).

wow, true about being unrecognizable :D you can tell it's her when you zoom in the picture, but she gives off more of a Uma Thurman vibe from the distance :D Wonderful and brilliant as usual :heart:

Bellissimo. Mi piace molto Winona (fu il mio primo tentativo di ritratto a matita qualche anno fa), e qui amo in particolare le rose!
Grandissimo come sempre! :clap:

Come ho già avuto modo di esprimere in passato i miei apprezzamenti le rinnovo i miei più vivissimi complimenti. Inoltre se un domani dovesse prendere in considerazione un eventuale corso per apprendere e studiare le sue tecniche me lo faccia sapere la raggiungerò anche in capo al mondo (io abiti a Brescia). Felice estate 2014
