"I Take Thee" Finished Finally!!!


Well, its only been over a month since I was first posting on this picture. Within that month or longer of time I had restarted this picture 4 times, always a mistake in the same spot!! It seems that Stonehenge paper doesn't take to kindly to being erased on for one matter and for the other starting with the brides pinky finger first by the time I would reach her thumb it seemed I couldn't get the thumb nail to come out right, and would need to erase, but my electric eraser was to small and would mark the paper with indentations and then I would trash it. Then to really make matters worse, when I was transferring the line drawing from my rough draft paper to the final paper, I was using to much pressure and making deep pressure lines which would also screw it up. Finally, I found a way to do it without using any pressure at all, with a little help from a friend..LOL ( thanks Jeanette!!). After the 4th line drawing I finally got started on what turned out to be a great picture. I swear it only tooks me about 90 hours of working on it, which I never ever have spent that much time on a picture. All I can say is it was well worth the wait. Feel free to tell me yourself and leave comments...

Wow! This is a splendid piece of artwork Venus! You should definitely be proud of this one. :) Working with colored pencils is still just an aspiration for me...haven't had the courage to really try anything big yet, but someday, mark my words, I will! :)

So glad to have come across your blog! I will definitely be back to see updates!
