. tea for one by variations . tea for one by variations
To sing a song for you, i recall you used to say


Watercolor, lots of ink. It took me about a week - I've been working on it on and off between school junk.

This was such drama. Yet, oddly, I was strangely calm. See, first I spilled ink all over the reference picture - so i was making up a lot of stuff. That wasn't so bad, but then I spilled ink on the drawing X_X; Yeah, that blob next to her head was not planned.

For the border, I drew the pattern only once than multiplied it on photoshop. I'm not crazy enough to draw it a million times.

Oh yeah and don't come around with whatever you may call "constructive criticism" like saying that her eyes are crooked and whatnot. I bet if you look in the mirror, guess what? your eyes a bit crooked too. o_O;

Funny, I thought you spilt ink on the wall, and then decided to include that in the drawing.
Amazing work. What colors did you use for the skin tone? That's my biggest hurdle that I'm working on right now.

Very Cute result.
Is it an autoportrait?

this is really cool. i thought the blob was supposed to be there. the expression in her eyes reminds me of when somebody is remembering a little sad memory, and the "little black cloud" is like what her minds eye is using to represent the sad memory.

and i love the way that you made her eyelashes look, they're very classic, i wish i had the patience with makeup to make mine look like that.

This is a gorgeous piece, it is well composed, the colour palette is calm but contrasted too :) Lovely.

It's really great that you can recover so well from an ink spill!! Whenever an accident happens to one my my pieces.. I give up in defeat! The ink spill works beautifully well!

The tea stain only adds to the character of the picture. It almost blends in seamlessly. <3
Great work, its amazing.

Everytime I see this picture I love it more and more. I had already added it to my faves but I saw it come up again and really it is an awesome picture. It almost has an Evanescence feel to it... and they are one of my fave bands. Amy Lee rocks!

She reminds me of an old girlfriend -- with more class... and cooler clothing. Excellent job on the hair, glove, plate, eyes, cheek, and neck-thing.
