My Locket by yib91 My Locket by yib91
I finally finished! I've been working on this one for months =p

My amazing, wonderful, loving boyfriend gave me this locket for christmas :smooch:
So I had to draw it :love:

My scanner still sucks so it does look better in real life =P
I probably worked on this for 20+ hours but I didn't keep track at all.

I used all graphite on this and a tissue for blending. I think its like 8"x11"

We still need to take a picture together to put in it :heart:

Update 11/11/11 - Got a new scanner and rescanned the drawing so now it looks a lot better! :D

Very nicely drawn, and the subject matter makes it even more special.

Thank you so much. That means a lot to me especially since this is one of my favorite drawing I have ever done. :aww:

As it usually is the case, those pieces that have the most meaning to us are also the ones we put the most time and passion in. It is a part of our soul.

Here is my personal line I came up with about a year ago....
"For me my art is the illustration of my life and the visual passion of the soul; what the hand cannot create, the heart fills in."

Protect that piece my friend, it will mean even more to you in the years ahead.
