EDIT no 2: Wooow, my second Daily Deviation! And on my first serious coloured pencil drawing! :wow: I can't thank enough lovely and talented zidaria for suggesting it and sweet ArtByCher, girls, I'm eternally grateful for your invaluable support! :heart: :huggle: It made my day!

EDIT: many people thought it is a photo, not a drawing, that's why I'm updating this deviation :lol:

About the drawing

Well, folks, this is my first multicoloured work 100% done with coloured pencils - apart from this one [link] - however, I have never covered so much area of a paper with this medium before ! I decided that it'd have not been a good idea to choose a human face for the first attempt, and, luckily, I recalled having this pictures of sneakers saved on my PC in "Wanna draw" folder :giggle:
Anyway, it took me a few months to complete this drawing. I really dislike the background [I must improve drawing blurry things], but I'm glad how the sneakers turned out. Hope you like them, too :aww:

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-09-23
Suggester says 'We can see that it was drawn with much dedication, effort and passion. Absolutely magnificent!'Converse sneakers drawing by *Ilojleen ( Suggested by zidaria and Featured by ArtByCher )
This is a beautiful drawing. The soft background creates stunning realism in contrast with the subject. One of the main feelings I get from this piece is the sense that there is a delicate bond between two people. It is really quite something special. Your skills shine through effectively as well. It's like I can almost reach out and touch the rubber of the soles and the canvas of the shoe. The shading is sublime. Clean, intelligent, and confident. Originality rating is 3 and a half stars only because there are endless amounts of converse sneaker drawings, however, with that being said, the Vision rating is 4 and a half stars because you took that common subject and made it your own. You created emotion and were able to evoke thought and feeling in your piece. As stated before, your Technique is fantastic and admirable. The Impact also goes back to that delicate bond as previously mentioned. It is almost as though you can tell that the little one looks up to and admires the older idol. You successfully created a subtle, yet warm drawing that reflects on the beauty of relationships; particularly when they involve the innocence of children. Continue with your work, you're a lovely artist.

stunning artwork! makes me thought of this as photography at first :D
indeed the shoes were very realistic. the one that gave it away as color pencil were the background. after a very close inspection that is...
this is a suggestion, feel free to reject it, but i think it would be more believable if the background were white, but you still give shades under and behind them, like product posters we see nowadays!
when i first see this, i thought of the big shoe as a daddy and the little one its baby, so its like a sweet family time! could sell as father's day poster don't you think? lol
