Drawing of Jeremey by nimra Drawing of Jeremey by nimra
Pencil on Hot Press Water Color paper

20 x 32

With every drawing I have certain goals that I strive to archive. For this one it was a mood, the mood, one foreboding, a feeling I tried to carry throughout the whole composition. The wall, the rusted bolts, the textures, and lighting need to spiral back to that one eye of clarity, the only glimmer of hope Although the pose is very transitional, the feeling is not. Thanks to all for watching this as a WIP.

Here I am again commenting on you, but how can I not? This piece doubles anypiece in my gallery, I love the way you have so much control over your backrounds. What capture my attention the most is the Jacket, so realisticly Textured by a masterful artist, I look up to you my friend - Gerald

Yeah I know what you mean, this backround is more of a rugged backround and "Blues For Momma" is'nt exactly a rugged drawing, know what I mean? Maybe a backround like "The Name of The Fathers" 's would be more appropriate for "Blues for Momma" I don't know its just an opinion - Gerald

i have looked at all your work and i have noticed that you make strange unique backgounds in all your drawings,how do you come up with the designs do u just make them up? this drawing is amazing you have a great attention to detail, i cant believe the amount of detail in the background, you must have lots of patience to do something like this,how long did it take to do the background. after looking at all your work it has inpired me to work harder on my drawings, when ever i need inpiration for my next drawing i just look at your gallery. seeinf your work has helped me to improve my drawing skills and has made me more confident at doing my work.

Thank you so much for the good words! The background came from a series of works called neo-fossil that I have been exploring for about ten years now. Its just been within the last four years they appeared along with my portraits and I am still playing with the concepts.
