Her Familiar by Noreen

Her Familiar
by Noreen

Prompt: The Familiar
prompted by: Mary Katherine, during Sketch Fest #18 (September, 2011)

Wanted to work on eyes, and started this sketch for the practice. Thanks so much for the prompt! I think I may even do this one in colored pencil for even more practice.. Ran out of time, and will give the sketch a bit more work too. ;)

     Noreen Berlier replied to this: Thank you so much Michelle! The mask is inspired by a real leather mask created by MitchellWalker(dot net) He does the renfair circuit, and it's loosely based on the mask on his business card!

Kate says: Beautiful work, Noreen! ~ Reply?

     Noreen Berlier replied to this: Thanks so much, Kate! I'm so pleased that you like it!

Edward Cammarota says: Very intense....I keep wanting to say "stop staring at me, I didn't do it" ~ Reply?

     Noreen Berlier replied to this: She knows the secrets we keep. She holds them for us when we want to release them.. ;) I'm guessing she knows that you're ready to let go.

Mary Katherine S says: Enchanting from the first glance! ~ Reply?

     Noreen Berlier replied to this: I'm so happy that your prompt nudged me out of my sketchfest overload. I couldn't get started drawing anything until your prompt inspired an eye study that lead to this! Thank YOU!!

KR says: Those eyes! O_O ~ Reply?

     Noreen Berlier replied to this: Thank you so very much, Katerina!

Sally Gilroy says: The eyes are awesome...they draw you right in! ~ Reply?
