the maiden by nuu the maiden by nuu
A poem I wrote a few months ago and a pic I drew a few days ago.
The poem kinda sucks. If you can't read it, all the better.

To me, the poem sounds like a cool setup to a graphic novel, and the main character looks likeable, nice and gothic. :D Schweet

Hoo...

Interesting to see text mixed in with your art. Never seen it before :D Some of that cool, lively but frozen stuff that's in b/w photos is in here too. Gaw, I'm so glad people never ask me to explain myself. I luv the smooth shading, I don't know if it mixes that well with the stark 2-color background pattern... maybe if it was smoothed in?

Hm...
Well I thought that if the background was all shaded in too, it'd be too busy and distracting for the text.
Her face is actually a lot more shaded than i meant for it to be... once I started, I couldn't stop. :/

I get that with shading too.. you start off meaning to take it one way and it goes another... hmm true dat, but, I still say the contrast's a bit sharp. Maybe if a grey was dropped in there instead of black?
Nya, just brainstorming anyway. Never take it like, "ZOMG do this!" More like, "hey, y'know, in a hypothetical alternate universe... could that or that work?" Ne. Something. *heat fries brain*

I'm not sure about the contrast... *does a lot of high contrast shit*
But maybe if i turne dit down a little. I'd imagine that'd make the text a little harder too read as well though.

This sounds like an awesome premise to a story! You should draw more of this character! It has a lot of potential.

This is gorgeous. I really love emotive black and white pictures. And major props to you for creating a fluid rhyme scheme with your poem. :nod: That's so difficult.

The eye-lashes (or whatever) look weird, not only because they're white, but also the positioning.

nuu Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2005
Hmm...
I did try to draw it like the model's in the magazine. It's a little hard to tell where her lashes are, I guess, because they're black, and I had to guess a bit. (not to mention the pic was small)
