More than who I am by StandsWithAPencil More than who I am by StandsWithAPencil
My tribute to the Castle episode Killshot (4x09). This scene was so powerful because at this point Kate Beckett decided to change her life.

Dr. Burke: "Kate, what do you want?"

Kate: "I want to be more...than who I am."

Prismacolor pencils (Premier and Verithin) on A4 Bristol paper. First drawing I finished using Prismacolor \o/ And I used :iconcrimefish:'s tutorial for colouring. Her tutorial is awesome! She is awesome! Go check out her gallery if you haven't yet, you will be mind blown!

This is also my entry for :iconilojleen:'s contest here [link]

Don't post this anywhere else without my permission. It annoys the hell out of me when people do that. Respect the artist please.

ETA: I've been staring at this for a while now and I like how you can actually see a learning process going on within this drawing (I'm still looking for things I can change, I see some but won't change it). I had never drawn with Prismacolor pencils before this and about halfway through I purchased Verithin pencils for the details. The lowest panel is the one I finished last and on the same day I had finished the background of the first panel. I like the middle one the least because I kind of messed up the skincolour. This turned out better in the last panel but it does make it look as though these two panels don't belong together. Thus concludes my own critique on the drawing, haha!

Now also on Stana's Facebook page :D [link]

just so I understand (and I readily admit a lot of dA confuses me)
but if I was to feature this art piece, say, in my journal, to let my watchers know how great I thought your art was, you would be offended?
or am I missing your point completely?
I'd really like to know, because I do features a lot on my profile page and so far, the artists' have liked it

aw thanks for asking. Featuring here on DeviantArt is fine. I'd love that actually! Recently some people just took my art and posted it on sites like tumblr, pinterest etc. and I kind of felt I lost all control. So that is what I meant with not posting it anywhere else :) The feature thing on DA is more like a thumbnail with a link to this page, so that is fine ;)

This is lovely, Arlene! The first panel is my favorite too. I think it could almost stand on its own. For me, furniture and background is such a pain but you really captured it beautifully, especially the lighting. Looking forward to seeing more as always :)

thank you! I'm still deciding what to draw next. I'm not even sure if the next one is going to be colour or graphite or even Castle related hahaha! We'll see ;)

This is beautiful. I love the first panel. Wonderful colouring (I really don't have the patience for coloured pencils. Maybe one of these days I will, but not yet, and you do it so wonderfully).

It's actually quicker than graphite I think xD or maybe I find it easier now haha! You should try it :) it's really fun! I never thought I could work with coloured pencils at all xD
