illustration friday: reflection

Here's my post for Illustration Friday. The topic is reflection. I came up with a few ideas and settled on this one. The woman looking in the mirror isn't pining for her younger days. She has wrinkles and gray hair but feels young inside, and so that is what she sees.

Eren, I honestly don't know anyone else who makes art that is this fun to look at as you do. Get that portfolio together bustamante!

Oh this is both sweet and funny. Sometimes when I look in the mirror, I start wondering if that's really me. She goes all the way and decides to see, what she want's to see :-)

Really nice!

Great illustration, I especially like the way you have done the hair and the light in the mirror.

Very nice! I just love that pretty face in the mirror and I love the old lady's hair! You did a great job creating the mirror's surface.

You really did a nice job on this! It's a very sweet portrait of how important self-perception is - we really are as young as we feel! Beautifully, sweetly done!

There are all these little touches you add into your stuff which really gives it life...the slouch of the old lady's back, the slender neck of her younger counterpart, the subtle shading indicating the reflection of the mirror....

Lovely as always Eren...

Chloe said...

Eren said...

I have a tendency to look in the mirror and see the me I expect to see, not necessarily the one that's actually there, so I could really relate to this! :0) I love the way you colored the older woman's hair. Lovely!
