Lilies by Pygar Lilies by Pygar
Drawing flowers isn't really my thing but I was asked to do this as a present so here it is.

As per usual soft pastel on A3 paper.

Though drawing flowers may not be your usual, you did an excellent job with these. The colors are rich and vibrant, and the highlights really add a nice sense of depth.

You're welcome, and I know the feeling. I haven't done anything traditional in awhile either. :)

Neat! I really love the detail on the petals.

I do feel that some of the leaves could use a bit more definition, but overall this is just wonderful. Nice job!

Beautiful. I can't believe how well you do pastels. If I tried to do this, I would have a smeared mess! :sun:

I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the black background. It's a bit unoriginal. But I love the flowers.. very well blended for pastels.

I wanted a background that would make the flowers stand out, I can't think of anything better but I'm open to suggestions :)

Why not just an out of focus background with the a cool (blue/green/purple) color scheme? It'll make the flowers look that much warmer and peaceful and be less black. :P

Your quite right I should try that! I tried it a year or so back and it was a disaster so I didn't have the confidence to try again :(

=D I love flowers! These look so good!
again, a couple of bolder strokes could have been added, and maybe highlights on the stems, but other than that it's gorgeous!
