Artist's Statement
OMG OMG OMG IT'S FINALLY DONE! This is months of hard work, and most definitely my best picture yet!

I'm not very familiar with traditional drawings (seeing as I can't draw for anyones life) But wow! This is lovely! The shading creates such an impact, the angle is very surprising, but it works so well, almost like a piece of a shattered mirror. On a con side the figure's face in the mirror is a little un balanced and a bit cartoonish(which is fine!) but you have plenty of time to work on human figures(so don't worry ^^.) This has so many little details too! like the glare on the window pane, and all the joints in the spinal cord of the skeleton, to the calander on the dest and the knobs on the drawrs. This is amazing and beautiful. A simply stunning job!
What do you think?

First up, I love how this was done all in pencil, the shading and lining is so detailed. :love: It makes the reader keep thinking on what this piece might be about. "Skeletons don't read books." But the image in the mirror shows the skeleton in skin? It's a wonder of what might be on the skeletons book if the girl has the title of as said title of art. The only real problem I see in this piece is the crop, I mean, it's on a interesting angle but it kinda cuts off the piece in some range. That's the only problem I see but that is to my opinion.
Otherwise, this is a great piece dear! Well done! :love:

I haven't seen something this good in a very long time. I love the concept and the execution. It's beautiful in a creepy sort of way. :clap:

I like this concept, I find it very creative. The piece is nicely illustrated - especially the detail on the skeleton.
Good job. :)  And if I may ask.. what does the book say?

Thank you very much.

The book says Skeletons don't read books ;)
