The Blue Crystal by Rajacenna The Blue Crystal by Rajacenna
I saw a picture in a magazine and I wanted to make my own version of it so here it is :) its on the cover
of the book 'The awakening' by kelly armstrong :D

The blue crystal symbolizes the creativity and beauty that is inside all of us. You just have to believe in yourself!

This drawing is my first step to colour realisme. I wanted to test out to draw the skin in colour, how to blend etc. So I didn't put a lot of details in it. I learned a lot from this drawing so now I can use that knowledge for my upcoming realistic colour drawing. :)

Made with coloured pencils

This reminds me of old fashioned painters, the type that painted like you were looking at a photograph, it's good to see this type of art hasn't been lost, Well Done!

Is this from the cover of 'The Awakening' by Kelley Armstrong? Loved that book, and I loved the cover too when I first looked at it. Somehow, I like your version even more :D Amazing job on skin tone.

you did great job with skin color, and the crystal too, but it need some shadow under it depending on the way light is coming from, because like that it looks like floating in the air

Wow, it looked so real that I thought it was a photo. This looks very similar to a book series I read once. But that's irrelevant. Amazing work! You have great talent! :)
