Girl Smoking with Geometric shapes incorporated! I wasn't sure what to title it so for now its going to be Untitled. Pencil and pen on watercolor board, everything is pencil but the smoke is in pen. Comments appreciated! How do you like it?

This the model is so fantastic, especially the hair has the right appearance to contrast with the brighter areas.
I am not so confident with the background...but dont worry, I am not good with backgrounds either. I mean I have nothing against geometric appearance, because it suits the orthogonal smoke element very well. I cannot really say what I would differently because I do not have the interna. maybe it helps to reflect where she is (flat room, city streets, restaurant, beach?)
I hope I did not lower your mood, I just thought you like to have honest opinion, as I do...not in that particular moment, but afterwards I often think, it is good to have people like that around you... regards, delphifilm
Thanks a lot! Love when people take the time out to critique my work, makes me feel very good! I appreciate all your feedback and i was wanting to include watercolor but as i go on with works i always end up not taking the risks that i initially wanted to in the beginning in case i would ruin a work. It ALWAYS happens that way.... but me "settling" and not taking that risk i feel has been a crutch for me and im trying to break out of that, will just take some time. I appreciate your honest opinion a lot! Provides a lot of encouragement for me so thank you a lot!
Everything's pretty much the same, now that Summer ended I'll be busier again. Focusing more on my Fb page these days but not drawing much though. I should actually start working on something, I am way too lazy, haha. What about you?
This is absolutely incredible! I have one question, how do you make the geometric shapes (especially the curves) to be so perfect?And how do you manage to draw some of the lines SO CLOSE together without making them seem like one thick line?
Thanks so much! I guess a lot of practice would be the answer and i dont mean that in a modest way. The circles are done by a compass and not free hand! But with the curves of the smoke i draw them in pencil first and tweak them A LOT and make sure the curves look right and fluid before adding any ink. As far all the lines being close together, working with lines a lot and practicing makes it a lot easier but i sometimes find it difficult to manage... but it is possible!!! i would suggest maybe just creating curved lines and seeing how close you can get with them. Also having those guidelines that i mentioned in pencil first really helps with that! hope this helps if you need clarity on anything dont hesitate to let me know
no problem! and a while actually.. only because im not CONSTANTLY working on it you know? im going to school and have a lot on my plate so it takes weeks maybe to finish works. but in reality if I were to tell you the amount actually spent on it it would be hours and hours
Very nice job as usual. I'm glad you found something that worked for you in doing this. Something about the way the woman's hair is tied up in the back looks a little unnatural, but that's just a small thing. This piece really came together.
I'm okay, just tired. School has me on my toes, but all my classes are interesting, one has to do with design, so that's fun. I wish I could draw more though, I've been too tired when I've gotten home, so I usually only get to draw on the weekends. It's a near kin to torture.
