My drawings are, to say the least, highly detailed. Often I over do it. I know I do. It frustrates the hell out of me that I just cannot let a drawing be. So, on the odd occasion when I create something and resist the urge to cross hatch the hell out of it it I feel quite pleased with myself. Those drawings often become my favourites. Probably because they make a refreshing change.
Here's one of those. It's another from the Jane Austen book.

I love them either way!!!<3
Though I can totaly understand the sweet feeling of refreshing change by our own selves!!!***
I had to laugh at your complaint about being too detailed in your work, because that is exactly what I admire about it! I simply would never have the patience to be so precise. Your work is beautiful!
That is beautiful in it's simplicity.
I love detail too, it's hard to leave a picture alone sometimes!
I love it! You're right, sometimes simplicity is best, but I'm also in awe of your crosshatching...
question...what type of pens do you use for your colored drawings? I can't seem to find good ones. I'm finding refreshing change in just sketching instead of painting. I thank you for the inspiration!
Thank you, guys.
Tahirih, coloured ballpoints or Pilot fineliners are my faves. This is a Pilot G-tec. The brightly coloured drawings are colour ballpoints. Very cheap stuff.
Cheers, my dears.
And, BTW I don't endorse Thomas Sabo neclaces. I'm sure they are thouroughly trashy.
Wonderful drawing :o)
You have great attention for detail, its an asset :P
Hello, I just recently found your blog and LOVE your drawings. I agree with Caatje, the level of detail in your work is what first caught my eye. I'm actually a little jealous of the patience and skill you must have to pay such close attention. I don't think I could do it! But obsessive cross-hatching or not, I think all of your illustrations are beautiful and I look forward to seeing more :)
What a delicate, intricate, and lovely shoe, Andrea!
