Everything Is A Cycle by teaganwhite Everything Is A Cycle by teaganwhite
This drawing is big.
3.5'x4.5'.

I've been working on this for so long I'm not sure what to say about it... It's charcoal on paper... Open project for my Image & Text class. Man do I like bugs.

You'll have checked your bonfire for rabbits and hedgehogs, but what about these guys? Everything Is A Cycle by *lostsoulx44 is an absolutely stunning large scale charcoal drawing with quite a macabre message. ( Featured by Mollinda )

I love the subtleties in the center area and the spontaneity of the bug areas. I'm sure this is epic in person. :)

I found this on behance and haven't been able to stop coming back to look at it for the last week or two! The feathered/whimsical feel you've created is magical, and the way you render the organic textures is really fantastic. You are a great inspiration! I think I'll be buying myself a print very soon.

This is great. I didn't know where to put that to my favourites, it looks like a well made mixture of art and design. I think i have to check your Portfolio on Behance. On Deviantart it's always more complicated with this kind of work.

Charcoal? Really? I could've sworn that this was a digital piece from the thumbnail, but looking closer, this is incredibly well-done and detailed. The macabre message only makes it more awesome than it already is.

Keep up the incredible work!
