Michelangelo by Zsoszy Michelangelo by Zsoszy
I practiced a little the portrait drawing, with some Michelangelo style hair, and some renaissance style.

The born of this picture was quite weird. I tried to draw these days, and I just struggled with my.. illness? Allergy? Don't know which one. But about two days ago, I sat down, and I started to draw... and here is Michelangelo! It is funny because I had a lot of Other ideas that I actually Wanted to draw, but I Can't. I'm about to feel that I don't choose the theme, it chooses me.

I love this far to much why can I just imagen Leonardo coming over and tugging at his hair? I know that they weren't exactly 'pals' lol.
Anywho, I love the shading used on his nose, and the way you do hair is simply to die for. <3

This is beautiful and just like I pictured him. Also, out of curiosity because I'm English, what is the translation of your Michelangelo quote in your signature?

I think I've found the 'official' English translation, and it says:
"There's nothing lower on earth, of less account than I feel I am, and am, Lord, without You."
Though Michelangelo writes it about God, I consider this few words in other meanings for myself.

Great xD I was wondering how great would be if he appeared somewhere on AC, because I read somewhere that Leonardo used to make fun of him =P

Yes, it would have been good! :aww:
Well, they didn't liked each other. But I think Michelangelo was the one who 'hurt' the other.

A really great picture of il Divino, even though I usually think of him as a much more grumpy person, who throws buckets after the pope and dislikes his broken nose.
Interesting that you gave him a straight nose, it suits him well. =)

Yes, he was 'grumpier', and he had got a broken nose I know, once I wrote a tiny story about it. C:
I think this picture is just an idealized picture about him. :aww:

Yup I find that themes definitely choose us. Even if we draw what we want, it always takes on a life of it's own. Beautiful drawing!

:heart: This is such a wonderful portrait of him... He looks very lively, his eyes look a bit melancholic and very intelligent and curious at the same time. And his hair... :heart: Those curls are soooo wonderful! :D

:hug: I'm really glad this theme has chosen you, dear. How are you doing lately?

I like to draw not just a face with an expression, but I would like to draw the personality. I think Michelangelo was - as you wrote - intelligent, lively, but at the same time, he struggled with himself, his thoughts, his doubts. I tried to draw a man, who looks like to smile a bit, but his eyes say that he has doubts, he is tired. He has energy, he try to be strong every day, but at the same time, his feelings make him struggle.

I am glad you like it! :aww:

It is great to hear you find him interesting! :aww:
He is, and he also wrote wonderful poems.
I can recommend you the "The Divine Michelangelo" documentary. It is a good documentary, and funny, too! Michelangelo often talks to the watchers! :D
