Whispers by tbdoll Whispers by tbdoll
The Illustration Friday word is: Whisper.

Anyway I kept thinking of "Whisper" by Evanescence, "Whispers of October" by In This Moment, the whispers at the end of "Vampires Will Never Hurt You," and then the line from "The Lovesong Writer" by Thursday, which goes, "he whispers his secrets into a cheap guitar."

Basically, it kept coming back to music and whispering parts of songs, and I wanted to draw Nicolette again. I've been meaning to draw her with a piano for ages now. I've wanted to draw her performing, too, rather than just posing with her equipment, so, yay! Two birds, one stone, all that.

The keyboard is from a photo I took, though I did paint over most of it. Thanks again to Dustin Bones and the Body Stealers for letting me take reference pictures at their band practice.

Even though her gloves have great detail, it's always the hair that steals the show. You always shadow/highlight every strand(haha, like I do with pencil... when I actually put time into the drawing... ).

Did you mjust make your own brush(yes, I know there's a link, lol). I did that with PhotoshopCS2. It is easily one of my favorite brushes.

Nah, I just use that brush for the hair on my drawings.  I've made a few brushes as I've needed them for other things.

Yeah, I do the same thing. I lost track a long time ago of how many brushes I've made and deleted as I needed to.

I love how you always give the hair lots of volume. It brings a lot of attention to the details. I also really like the hands, I always give up when I get to those :D
