  • Artist: shelly draven
  • Description: This is a cross picture I did a few years ago. In the background there's leaves and a ribbon being lifted by bubbles and pushed down my marbles. I did it in pencil, it didn't show up so well after it was scanned so I negatived it and messed with the contrast a bit. The reference is as good as I could get the original image to look after scanning it.

  • Thank you, I know, if I'd of had my way the main cross would be up and to the side, but I didn't expect this to get so involved. in the beginning it was just going to be the cross in the center, just a test that got WAY out of hand. thanks again I love your input.

  • Like this it almost looks as if you did it in conte. You have beautiful lines and lovely shading. Your forms are slightly shaky though. Crosses are just slightly lopsided at certain points. The ribbons look almost as if they're floating, but it doesn't bother me. Beautiful composition...slightly busy and center bold, but still very beautiful. In the future, consider not putting the center of interest directly in the middle.

  • Leaves and bubbles lifting a ribbon? Odd mix you have there.
    It is a good picture though. :] 4/5

  • It's pretty neat. I just don't get that whole "Leaves and a ribbon being lifted by bubbles and pushed down my marbles" stuff. Then again I never really got that kind of art. rolleyes I'll vote a 4.
