Rebekah by giadrosich Rebekah by giadrosich
Original Size: 10x13
Medium: Brush, Quill & Ink
Copyright Notice: 2005 by Bob Giadrosich/Sharayah Press. All Rights Reserved.

    Originally drawn as an interior illustration for the game company Imagine Roleplaying, Rebekah has gone on to appear on cards, prints, shirts, and other venues.
    Not much more to say about this piece except that, although it was done a while back, it still remains one of my favorite images to date.

More contrast between the figure and background in the left-hand side of the picture - either at the edge from either side, or by emphasizing the core shade of her ribcage . (The Sundog made me say it. Personally, I think it's beautiful.)

Whew! I can't tell you how much I struggled to restrain from evaluating. I start to understand why people settle for "Awesome! Dude." But what good is the connection if it doesn't serve art?

I find myself holding back evaluations (of your work) and, when I do evaluate, I review my comments ever so carefully. And that is good, because I've become too comfortable with analysis. Your agreement is a great relief and also a perilous boon. I'll be full of myself for a few days, now, making it a good time to draw and avoid doing crits!

Lol! Draw away, and create something great!

Any evaluations are welcome, btw, because much of my work is fraught with inconsistencies (Most times, I just hide the mistakes well). It is a welcome change from the mono-syllabic kudos. I never mind to have improvements pointed out by someone who has the knowledge and board time to back up their discerning eye. What bugs me is when someone gives a critique, and when you look at their profile page, they are submitting deviations on lined paper, lol.

I always consider the source! That being said, I'm frightfully aware of most of the things I need to improve on in any given piece, but it is usually long after the fact. It is always nice to have a fresh eye look at the work! Thank you.

:D

I absolutely love this piece. It's one of my top favorites that I've found here so far. Your work is just great, and this woman looks just like myself from a dream I had once... one of those dreams you have where you can see yourself, and you don't look like you do in real life. On top of it, she's wearing armor that, again, looks pretty close to some from a different dream of mine.

I guess you could say that I found my dream picture here on your gallery ^.^.

But to make a long story short, thanks so much for drawing this. My jaw dropped.

Thanks, Danielle. I do apologize about the late reply to your very kind words, but it seems it has been one thing after another, not to mention being out of town and shang-hied internet service, which left me with...gasp...dial-up for almost a week and a half!

In reality, I'm the one who has to thank you for your visit and looking through the art. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed Rebekah. She's one of my favorites.

:D

Here, in this one amazing piece of work, I have found the face of my Delilah. Thank you. You have a truly amazing portfolio here, on DA.

Such detail, tone and texture and use of space, in what are, very emotive pieces. I know Rebekah will long remain a favourite. Sadly, I wish it were available to buy as a print.

Thanks, Alexandra! This piece remains one of my favorites, because at the time, I was coming to grips with a few things in my art that I wanted to push beyond. In essence, this was sort of a breakthrough for me.
Btw, it is available as a S/N limited-edition print, but not through DA. If you are interested, note me and I'll send you the details.

:D

Hi Bob

Indeed, I love this style of work as, for me at least, it shows a great deal about how not only does an artist think but how he executes his art, nothing is left to chance or hidden by colour. It's all in the 'details'.

Wonderful work!
