First Kiss by MrEyeCandy66 First Kiss by MrEyeCandy66
Do you remember that first kiss? I know you do. Tell me about it if you like. Mine was much like this drawing, a very long time ago...a very cold winter day, but in the moment we didnt feel any chill. :heart:

I was looking for something a little different, a little more emotional to draw. I was inspired by a gallery from :iconannakoutsidou: named "love and friendship" and chose to try this. Please check out Anna's gallery and see if it moves you like it did me. 

Polychromos colored pencil on Strathmore greyscale paper. The background was improvised somewhat. The snow was done with an electric eraser and generals white charcoal. Stock photo from the net.

Here my WIP for this one :D

Thank You :)

:faint: I don't know whether it's the hand or the expressions or postures or what, but you can really sense the motion and spontaneity in this scene. I think it might be because you got the angle of the heads exactly right, or maybe because of the perfectly rendered wrinkles in the fabric of the mans jacket? Any which way... be still my beating heart!
The woman in this drawing makes me think of the younger version of my current art teacher, which makes me happy, she just got married, I hope her relationship is as romantic as this! :love:

I loved your description of your first kiss! On a cold winters day, oooOO. How romantic. I'm sure it's a lovely memory for you. I have never been kissed, but I'm not too bothered. I'm going to save it for somebody who is special. Was the person you first kissed special?

Sorry for rambling :S I'm in the mood, I guess!

Thank you Sir
this is sooo beautiful! great work! and i'm so glad you mentioned annakoutsidou and her love and friendship gallery as an inspiration. I completely agree with you. I often find myself just scrolling through her art for ages, its so inspiring and beautiful..your drawing is quite similar and just as beautiful :)

Aww yes, Anna opened my eyes somewhat to putting "love" into a drawing. I think we have all experienced what this couple feel..if not yet maybe "hopes" to feel. :)
