Maeve by LucitaniaMarie Maeve by LucitaniaMarie
Collage
Marker
Pen
Pencil
Gold leaf paint

Sometimes I look at the girls I draw, and I just fall in love. I think to myself that they exist outside of my creating them, and that no one is so acutely aware of their beings as I am. To me they breathe.

*Some of you may have noticed that I changed the title of this deviation. I realized this morning while I was jogging that her name was wrong, and this was her correct name.

I can see your "hand" in all your work, your own "signature style". More than that, your "thing" is just so beautiful.

I love the tones you use and the was you just draw out everything. The stretcher/hoops, the hair and chop sticks, the freckles and the gold leaf (this is one of my favorite parts of this.) is just fabulous.
But hot damn that halo had some intense texture to it.
