Making Mirrors by AriannaRizzo Making Mirrors by AriannaRizzo

"Dreamt of a doorway
That opened to everything
And I'm reaching towards it
Drifting backwards

Drawing the curtains
Windows inside my head
Maybe I'm only making mirrors"

I just tried to use a different technique, and I have been very satisfied. I know that the design itself looks strange in some ways (maybe because it is too dark), but I hope you like it anyway.
Please comment. Only in this way I know how to correct and improve. Thanks for your time!

The hair and beard are my favorite. What did you use to highlight those little white lines, a fine eraser or white pencil? Beautifully-drawn piece!
