THE WORLD OF PENCIL- FRIENDSHIP / SVIJET OLOVKE- PRIJATELJSTVO (#1)

I've been working with pencil a lot lately. In fact, with all the drawing I've been doing, it has come to the point where my right hand hurts rather badly. Not that it is a serious problem, I'm sure that my hand will recover as soon as I give it some rest. Anyhow, today I'm posting a drawing that I have been working on forever. I was trying to strike a balance between realistic and 'my style'. How did I do? I'm not sure. Some of you said you find the 'painting/drawing process' interesting, so I've decided to include 'before' and 'after' photograph, even if the difference in this case is a subtle one.  S


U zadnje vrijeme sam dosta radila s olovkom. Zapravo, uza sve to crtanje došla sam to točke u kojoj me desna ruka poprilično boli. Ne da je to neki ozbiljan problem, sigurna sam da će mi se ruka oporaviti čim ju malo odmorim.Uglavnom, danas objavljujem crtež na kojem sam dugo radila, pokušavajući postići ravnotežu između realističnoga stila i nečega što bi trebao biti moj stil. Kako mi je to pošlo za rukom? Nisam sigurna. Neki od vas su rekli da vam je zanimljiv proces nastanka slike, tako da sam odlučila uključiti prije i poslije fotografiju, čak i ako je razlika u ovom slučaj suptilna.

FINISHED DRAWING

Here is what the finished drawing looks like. At least I think it's finished. I might change my mind and decide that it needs touching up. Btw in case you're wondering, these girls don't really exist, or rather they exist but only in my imagination. I wasn't drawing anyone in particular this time. Have a lovely day!

DOVRŠEN CRTEŽ

Ovako izgleda završen crtež. Barem mislim da je završen. Možda promijenim mišljenje i odlučim da ga treba malo doraditi. Usput, ako se pitate, ove djevojke nisu stvarne, postoje ali samo u mojoj mašti. Nisam crtala nikoga posebnoga ovaj put. Ugodan dan svima želim!

  8. How beautiful, dear Ivana, and I am loving your latest illustrations in pencil! I think that illustrations in pencil have something really pure about it, really "honest" and I really love them, they seem "deep" to me. I really loved the two ladies and you are always so talented! Hope you have a lovely day, dear Ivana, with more illustrations!

  9. The thing I like the most is the hand, because it`s so long. It was the thing that caught my eye. I like the picture overall, I think you did nice work. I like the unrealistic aspect of it the most, but that is just my taste, I like surreal and unrealistic :)

    1. thank you so much. I actually thought about shortening the hand, but then I decided to keep it long because I like surreal things too. Thank you for noticing:)

  11. A me piace molto disegnare solo a matita (o a carboncino) perchè rende il chiaro-scuro al meglio, davvero credo sia la tecnica che più di tutti si presta a "prendere la mano" con la resa di luci ed ombre e relative sfumature!
    ed hai ragione, questo tipo di disegno è un work in progress continuo, magari lo ritrovi tra due mesi e decidi di cambiare le luci dei capelli o delle labbra, non finisce mai! ^^
    Comunque hai fatto davvero un'ottimo lavoro, mi piace tantissimo la scelta del soggetto, il ritratto non è una sfida facile ma tu l'hai superata brillantemente! :D
    Baci!

    1. si, hai ragione...con solo a matita possiamo rendere il chiaro-scuro meglio....io devo ancora practicare questa tecnica...e si...perche dobbiamo finire un dipinto o un disegno?...forse in due mesi, ho una relazione nuova e voglio cambiare qualcosa...e perche no?

      grazie!

  12. I can definitely see the elements of your personal drawing style combined with 'realism' as you say; and the outcome is lovely! Speaking of which, I really love how you have an identifiable drawing style of your own Ivana, it's very special :) I hope you're having a great week so far - fingers crossed for plenty of sunshine!!

  15. Divan, divan crtež - možda jedan od tvojih najljepših i najemotivnijih dosad! Sviđaju mi se radovi s olovkom, baš ih je fino vidjeti malo za promjenu i mislim da ti baš odlično pristaju! :)

  16. Meni je fascinantno baš to što se uvek primećuje tvoj stil, a opet svaka od devojaka (bila ona stvarna ili izmišljena) zadržava nešto svoje što je čini unikatnom. Sviđa mi se i rad sa olovkom i rekla bih da ti takođe ide od ruke, mada s druge strane, kojeg god medija da se uhvatiš, vidi se da znaš šta i kako ;)

  18. This drawing of these two women are excellent. The woman on the right looks a little bit like the model Bella Hadid.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …

HOW TO WEAR MORE WHITE IN WINTER IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS

It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


1. START WITH ACCESSORIES 

If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…

READING UPDATE, NEW FINDS: MARIO VARGAS LLOSA AND RAGNAR JONASSON

I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
