Whisper by cloudmilk Whisper by cloudmilk
EDIT : I uploaded a higher resolution.

I tried to have my shadowing as soft as the words he's telling her.
I let you imagine about that.

Full page reference on a 2010 newspaper. I had to improve in order to draw this one the way I wanted it. I tried to be less impatient than I use to be to finish it.
Hope you'll like it. Critics and comments are very welcome :)

Ah lovely drawing!! You made the shading super smooth indeed!
I think maybe his eye could be a bit sharper (since I noticed you saying you weren't fully satisfied below)? As her earring is, and her hair is quite sharp as well. I think if the shading of his eye were a little léss smooth (mainly just the folds and lashes perhaps), it would make for a nice extra focal point that would help drag our gaze around the picture. Am I making any sense?
Beautiful work regradless! Fav for sure!

Very beautifully drawn.
The softness of the shading definitely enahances the gentleness of the man's touch and the intimacy of the moment.
Very lovely work. :)

I still find afterwards that shading is still shy on certain parts. Little maybe I can reach your perfection ;)

Là je me place aux antipodes de ta dernière oeuvre. Quoi que ...
En tous cas merci pour tes compliments, et content que ça te plaise. Les cheveux sont un vrai calvaire, j'essaie encore. C'est loin d'être parfait, mais mieux qu'avant, c'est déjà ça :)
