Redoing Old Art

We are finally kind of settled, at least for the moment, and being settled has given me a lot more time to draw.  My desk is in the corner of the living room, where I have all of my sketch paper, and I just got a whole bunch of new pencils for Christmas.

Now that we have all our things in one spot, I am reunited with all my finished and unfinished art.  I always feel bad when I don’t finish my drawings.  It feels like I’ve neglected ideas that should have had life breathed fully into them.  I then found this:

When I drew this picture the first time I had a lot of inspiration from Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and her watercolor paintings combined with some of my own ideas.  I never finished it though.  I started this picture, got inspired by something else, started a new drawing, and forgot about this one.  I found it again about eight months later, hoping I could finish it, but I couldn’t because my style and technique have changed and looked weird with my old drawing.  So I started over.

I Used:

Faber-Castel Polychromos Pencils

Prismacolor Colorless Blending Pencil

The idea behind this drawing is the girl is falling, but she is at peace, and has a purpose for her fall.  Other than that it is open for interpretation.  What does it make you think of?
