Just finished a portrait in pastels. I copied it from a very old picture where all the colors had faded, so it was kind of hard. All I knew for sure was that the girl in the dress (my aunt) is wearing a traditional black dress from Chiapas, with ridonculous colors all over. My aunt suffers from hydrocephalus, and right now it's too advanced, she cannot get up from her bed anymore, so I wanted to give this drawing to my dad, you know. Cause he lives in fucking Qatar and can't see her as often as he'd like. So this is what happened.
Alrigt, there you have the original photo (of a photo) and then there's the final result. A thousand days after I had decided I was finished, I realised I had forgotten the necklace and the bracelet. But honestly, they're waaay too small to even notice them on the original photo. I did make the arm longer than it should be, that's why she looks a bit lanky on the drawing, but hey! Close enough. Close enough.
