Phantazein by IT-Hammar Phantazein by IT-Hammar
Phantazein
The title is greek and means "Make visible", which later the english word Fantasy has come from. I think that since this features a child, in a dream-like world, fantasy would be the right name for it. I think I used over 10 hours for this one, actually.. though some of the time I worked very slowly, I imagine. I did a fine to rough look on this one.. the left upper corner and girl starts with really fine lines and textures, and then as you move toward the lower right, it gets more rough. I though it would be a nice experiment.

Mech. HB 0.5, and a B pencil. A4 drawing paper.

My greatest thanks to =Tracie76Stock for providing me with the stock for this. I used one of all the wonderful pictures she have of her daughter as a model for this. She is simply perfect for it! Hands up for Tracie!

I must say you are reading my pictures too simply. I am glad if they give you joy in that way, but it would be great also if you could see deeper than that.

That is great! I love working in ballpoint! What kind of pen are you using? I mean, is it one that you refill, or one of those ones you have to throw away? Personally I love the cheap Bic pens =P

Aww, thank you. Although I do not really see it as difficult to do those.. they just take some time. I mean, one can do everything one set ones mind to, it just takes some time.. And one of my mottos:

"The difficult is a piece of cake, the impossible is a challenge" =P
It is by Kjell Aukrust.. hehe

It is all about how much time you put into this interest..
