Some of the synonyms for artificial are: man-made, artful, cunning, imitation, sham.  Man has been imitating nature for a very long time.....

  1. A gorgeous drawing and gorgeous colour but in this day and age of breast enhancement I hope we are also meant to chuckle.

  3. Heisann!

    Thank you for the definition... I tried to find the exact meaning of the word, but did not find it on the Internet.
    Still I did not miss ;:OD)
    Beautiful piece of Art from your hand!

  5. love it, great use of the paper! Thanks for your comment on my site, 'solahart' just came into my head, it's a company in Australia providing solar hot water. Must be indoctrinated by tv adverts from when I was a kid!

  6. Beautiful drawing! You really captured the texture of stone. By the way, I am really impressed that you managed 52 straight weeks of IF submissions! I can only dream!

  7. Beautiful work! Thanks for looking at "my" artificial, too. I'm going to browse around a bit while I'm here, so if I make a LOT of comments it isn't because I'm a stalker....

  8. Hey hey! Wow you have great control over your medium. Lots of texture and light coming through the pigment. This bust was the first thing I painted in an art class learning chiaroscuro... ever since I have been attracted to armless women :) -- just kidding!

  10. Lovely use of pencil and paper, Love it. It's such fun to see the variety that IF generates and the people that take part. Lots now. I wonder if anyone anywhere has found the arms or the head is lurking in a museum somewhere.
