Carrie Fisher - Traditional Art Tribute by secrets-of-the-pen Carrie Fisher - Traditional Art Tribute by secrets-of-the-pen

“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.” - Carrie Fisher

I've had this goldleaf for years and have always been too afraid to try it. Carrie Fisher was a bold woman and I took a little inspiration from her to create this.


>>Created with chalk, charcoal and goldleaf on gray strathmore paper in about 25 hours.

Wow, thank you so much! I keep looking back on this piece and that quote to bolster and encourage myself when I'm having hard art days. Courage is so important in art and in life and I feel like Carrie Fisher really took that to heart.

This looks amazing! How did you get the line between her face and the background charcoal so clean?

:iconsecrets-of-the-pen:

I laid down all the charcoal first and then cleaned up the line of her profile with an eraser before I started on her face. After that, it's just being super careful about the angle you are blending so none of that charcoal gets pulled into the profile line. Charcoal is messy, no doubt! But with practice smudging is a rare thing. :D

Your art is ridiculously breathtaking! I love the realism coupled with the surreal elements and pops of color, it's incredible. Definitely a fan, definitely a new watcher.

Looks like a photograph :heart: I love the gold, it stands out so much and it is absolutely stunning. The texture difference is amazing, her necklace is what really made me go, "Wait, is this a photograph??"
Rest in Piece, Carrie Fisher, who was drowned in moonlight and strangled by her bra.
