Insomnia by crayonmaniac Insomnia by crayonmaniac
Now she is done!
Dedicated to one of my best and oldest friends on DA, John Harding, the amazing pencil artist :iconportraitz:
He graciously allowed me to use one of his sensational works in my picture frame, thanks so much John.
Original artwork
Oh by the way, John has named her Chrissy, as she will be one of the Crayon Girls, so i needed a name for the poor girl

A version of this painting will also be given to my sleeping doctor, with his pic in the frame

Technical information for those of you who read this stuff lol :
- references of lamp (old work by me, never used before) sleepwear, nighttable, sleeping pills were used for painting everything from scratch. I invented a lot this time, the face, the hair, the pillow, her arms, legs, shoes and teddy bear all without reference (because in case of the pillow none were available that way lol) hope it did not make too many mistakes

thanks for comments, favs and everything :heart:
Artwork not to use for any reason without my express permission, thank you for understanding

omg don't you tell me about it, i didn't sleep a wink this night, we are too artistic, too sensitive, the slightest ruffle of an angel wing disturbs our sleep

i never know if i have to curse or thank the gods for having made me an artist lol, i am still debating the issue lol
i have not been around on quill much lately ben, we had a crazy weekend and as from today i start to work as an illustrator again so i will not be around much, but i will try to catch up in my breaks
for the moment we are setting up references but once the actual painting starts, i guess i will be very scarce on da, but i will let you know
