love the way you lie by Shinnk love the way you lie by Shinnk
First new art I've uploaded since April.. o.o

Anyways, the title's the same as a song by Eminem and Rihanna, which I listened to while drawing this! It's what inspired me=)

I started out by doodling an eye, experimenting since I'm not good with coal, and then the rest grew from there.

Made with charcoal, hairspray and photoshop (used to add some color to the background) on A3 paper.
Time used, approx 10-20 h

No, would probably help to understand if I had, but I just hear a little more of them each time it plays, and I have seen the original video. Lots of nice eye candy there but not a lot of enlightenment. Oh well, will just keep enjoying the song and maybe eventually I will wise up..:icongivemesmilesplz:

You are most welcome!!

Here, found it with lyrics for ya! =) [link]
Well, love hurts, no? ;)
especially if it's the possessive love that seems to be described in this song^-^

wow, that's a loooot of views.. but it's a great song, so no wonder! =D

Whew, where to start.. You're awesome! Thanks for the link, I went and actually watched the lyrics, does help. Still confused about love the way it burns, hurts ect. Maybe kinda like when you love a person soooo much, anything they do is awesome!! Neat how a small four letter word like LOVE can evoke so many really strong feelings! I don't know.. Anyway, really neat song, makes ya think about important things, that's always good.. Possessive love is soooo good and sooooo bad perhaps as described in this song.. Must be others wondering what they are saying also, 3 million views when I watched.. Thats more people than live in Kansas.. lol.:D

hehehe, thanks and you're very welcome! :huggle:
well I guess it's a bit figurative, like poetry=)
Yup, maybe so! except for when they try to leave you..
I agree, and this is a song I can listen to at any time, no matter my mood as well.
I'm possessive at times, but I've never been in love for real, so I'm not sure.
Haha, I think it's quite common to google the lyrics if you like the song, at least that's what I do if I don't understand all of it=3
haha, and that's half of Swedens entire population! XD

Whaaa? You're not good with coal? Are you nuts? THIS IS AWESOME! Even I can't make something like that with coal. Actually, we don't really practice with coal <_< And so much details! Really awesome job on this one, Shinnk! :clap:

She actually reminds me of Prue from Charmed. I don't know if you've seen it or not, but I love the comparison :).

hm, I've only seen Charmed a few times, and not enough to know the characters names. So I don't know who you mean, but that sounds fun! =)

Lovely piece. I really like your use of charcoal. It looks very clean (especially the hair)
I also like how you've captured her emotion and the way her eye shines.
