Farrokh Bulsara by PrinceSsCarmilla Farrokh Bulsara by PrinceSsCarmilla
I posted this especially for a new friend of mine :iconpen-and-mouse: whose love for Freddie really touched me and reminded me of my undying love and affection for Syd Barrett. I hope she likes this most of all. I know his neck is a bit short and the angle of his shoulders are wrong...it all springs from my drawing too quickly! Although I spent nine or more hours on this one!

You wouldn't even say it's a drawing. The shading is so detailed and precise.. You brought the picture to life. Really wonderful. :heart:

what an incredibly kind thing to say...
I am obsessed with detail....and I've studied it since I was 12 and being told this that i have brought life to a white piece of paper...why i can't think of a greater gift than achieving what I've always wanted!
Thank you truly for writing me this very kind comment for it brought a smile to my face! :huggle:

I agree with you he does...but unfortunately that's not the only mistake...still I should be happy that it looks like him, right? And thanks for the positive reply...it made me very happy! :hug:

this is awesome!!!! the only comment I have is that I would have made his torso a little bigger and his upper left arm a little longer. Other than that, this is quite a fantastic piece!

the angle was SO hard! it wasn't straightforward at all...that's why he's a bit dostorted...but i'll give you the link to the photo so that you can compare...[link] Now that I look at it though you're right...and i think the head's too big...ugh! drawing people is like a maze with thousands of twists and turns any of which can get you to loose yourself in the process!
Thanks for the constructive criticism...i wish you had been standing beside me when i was drawing this...then I could have fixed this!! :( :hug: and :love: for the contructive criticism...i appreciate that ALOT!

oh ok now that I see the photo it makes more sense, but sure thing! glad I could help! And I sooooo totally hate it when that happens. Its like sometimes I'll be drawing and just when I'm about done is when I notice everything to be wack and it makes me angry lol. yes, its definitely a maze!

PrinceSsCarmilla Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012
Oh don't worry...with time and practice it'll work out...I've been drawing FOREVER so i have that as an advantage....but to be fair, I struggled with Freddie...he's VERY hard to draw, particularly his nose! At one point I was about ready to give up...frustration is a terrible thing....but it's nice to see wone's efforts being rewarded when they make another happy!
If you have any questions or you'd like some advice on drawing, PLEASE don't hesitate to ask, i'd love to help you or advice you, I'd be HONORED to! So stop crying and I'll try to get you to draw Freddie!

His head looks really big. But I think that is the best part. I think he always had a big head. LOL Don't take that the wrong way I freaking LOVE this man. <3 <3 <3 I am not a expert realistic drawing artist but I say you did a awesome job!!! I think it is cute and it does look very realistic. :) It also looks like he is pushing his face/head sort of forward so the angle isn't bad at all. You did great! He was soo skinny in the 70s. Gosh I love Freddie. You do such amazing work! :) Keep it up! :)

You're right! :wow: I didn't see that! When i draw I stare at my subject so much that I begin to notice nothing anymore...it's awful as if everything becomes one shape! Glto hear tha you love Freddie! or else...kidding..lol But thanks for your constructive criticism...I really do appreciate it...and please if you don't like soemthing...or you think it could've beeen improved somewhere...please let me know...I usually ask my mom's advice before I post things...she's incredibly picky...but thanks to her i see things which i wouldn't otherwise! :tighthug: :love: to you for your comment and supprot:)

One thing I like to do with anything I am working on is finish it up or partly and then walk away. Take a break and then come back to it. That is great!! I used to have a coworker like that that everything was always wrong. But I really do find this piece fantastic. I doesn't need any changes really. You did great! :D

WHAT!!!!! OH MY DEAR ANYTHING DONE FOR ME OUT OF LOVE I WILL LOVE!!!
I would never be ashamed of something someone made me. :heart: :heart: :heart: It is a honor that you are even wasting your precious time to make someone you don't know a piece of artwork that in itself means a whole lot to me. <3 <3 <3
As my father always says your free time is priceless. You can't get that time back so again any time you spend doing something for someone else is amazing. I really appreciate that. <3 <3 <3 <3 Means a whole lot to me. :D
I will have to make you something special. :)

awww you're SOOOOOOOO sweet! I have it finished already but i'm not sure if I want to put it up yet....it's a water colour of Freddie in purple and black...but the background is full of lines as I was reduced to having to use a watercolour crayon because my black had run out...I hate crayons...they're awful unless you like lines...and sadly my mom is away and can't ok my work....so I don't know if i should post it....but you were SOOOOOOO nice in what you said that I have gained a sense of esteem....and will post it I think...for you:) oh and you don't have to make anything for me....but if you did I would be IMMENSELY honoured! I already LOOOOVE it....I feel special and immensely happy that anyone would take the time to do something for me...I can't think of a greater honour! :huggle: :hug: :tighthug:

Thanks Soph...you're awfully nice to me...I really do wish I had gone to school with you...I would have loved giving you my art...for you would have appreciated it...and that, to me, is by far more valuable than $$$ Not that I sold my art but i did give it to my friends who didn't really care for it! I got the feeling they would've preferred something bought:/
