Like ice in my soul by sanguisGelidus Like ice in my soul by sanguisGelidus
The words they say
are like ice in my soul.


This is a rough sketch from a few months ago I didnt want to post to dA, because I never post sketches here. But when I read about spirit day I just thought this fits perfectly. I know, this is technically not perfect, nor is the anatomy, but I really like the emotion and atmosphere in this. And the most important thing about a picture is the message (in my opinion :)).

PLEASE PEOPLE.. stop bullying!

Well since it is mentioned that it is a sketch it has that strong sketchy feeling in it. I personally like the hair, the hair blending in to the background is what makes this artwork really impressive. I wish you had some more details there, it would have been better.

Other then that I like it the colors you choose for the skin. From my experience odd skin colors are slightly hard to blend to give skin feeling. The face has the empty emotion that I would like to see when compared to your concept. The dripping make up and those purple-pinkish eyes just compliment the entire piece.
Overall, the concept is really balanced and well communicated.
Now, about the technical stuff, this artwork and many others of yours show a clear vision that you know all the basics of colors, lights and shadows. Your painting skills are very well developed and I would like to see the final outcome of it.
I generally think this sketch has a lot of originality to it and it has a very strong impact on viewer.
Awesome Job.

This piece would be perfect for a project we are developing -- an online gallery for artists who have been bullied or who explore the theme of bullying in their work. It's called the You Will Rise Project. Check it out here: [link] and read the "Submit Work" section for details about sharing your work on our site. Thanks!
