A falling star fell from your heart
And landed in my eyes...
I took the stars from my eyes and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you
Florence & The Machine ~ Cosmic Love
Realism has always been not enough for me, so I decided to take new paths, in search for some fresh forms of expression in the fine arts. Some of you might recognize some influence of Yoann Lossel, one of my favourite and most inspiring artists these days, because of the golden foil being added to the drawing. It was a very interesting and extremely meticulous attempt for me. Shaking hands and deep breathing - absolutely forbidden during the process. And idea for the abstract lines was partly inspired by Gabriel Moreno, another genius from nowadays in art. Take some time to check out his amazing art, if you haven‘t already. Other than that, it is some good old white pencil-on-black paper drawing. Mixing undiscovered techniques with the old ones makes the process of creation even more fun and helps to add a new dimension of fantasy elements in a completely different way.
Other than that, contemporary dance is just so ispiring, it was only a question of time when the temptation to render the dance concept on paper will win me over.
I‘ve to say, I enjoyed creating this picture very much and I sincerely hope that you too, dear viewer, will enjoy the final result.
