Uskok by Denis-V
Uskok
Hi there all of you art fanatics! :D I`ve done this draving just minutes ago and I`d like to share it with you. This tough guy is my drawing of "uskok". Uskoks (or how we Croatian say "uskoci") were border line warriors and paratroopers of Croatian defense against Turks in 17th century, mostly active during The war of Candia also called Cretan war (1645-1669.) :D I drew it on vellum with technical pencil and B7 pencil. Just added red in Photoshop. :) Btw, uskok is roughly translated: "those who jumps over" because they often illegally crossed the Croatian - Turkish border to fight against Turks. In Croatian people legends they are percieved as heroes and freedom fighters.
Hope you like this one. :D

Croatian girl by Denis-V
Croatian girl
Ovaj crtež je nekako lokalpatriotski i patriotski odjednom. Njena nošnja i ukrasi su kombinacija hrvatskih narodnih nošnja neretvanskog, imotskog i cetinskog kraja. Kad se sve to spoji dobije se ova divojka s kuburom. :) Crtano na toniranom sivom papiru. ------ Well, this girl is something kinda localpatriotic and patriotic at the same time. Her clothes and accessories are my combination of other Croatian folk costumes from Neretva, Imotski and Cetina areas in Dalmatia. When you mash up all of that, you get this girl with old pistol. :)
Pencil drawing on gray toned paper. Pencils used: B7 pencil, technical pencil, white coal Koh-i-noor Hardtmuth "Gioconda" 8812/2. ;)

Ahoy guys! ...and guyettes! :D
Nothing new with my life and I like it that way. Drawing is again on my priority list. And right now I`m thinking how I suck at social activities here on DA. I should try more to advertise my work, but I fail every time I try; not that I don`t know how, but I just don`t give much attention to it. Maybe it`s just my indifference towards that style of work, and maybe it is just laziness. But, one thing I know, I don`t like to push my works into your faces all the time. I like to draw and I know I`m not the "sell guy", nor the guy with existing DA ID, so I`ll keep on with what I like and can do: drawing. Expect my new work very soon and even more often.
I hope you are doing fine in your life. :D
BTW, for all of those who haven`t seen amazing work of :icongambargin: go visit his gallery and maybe your interest for historical stuff will widen to a new level. :D

Visit :iconalexsorsa: gallery for brilliant portraits! :D
:iconlady2: has wonderful style and interesting portraits. Be sure to check her art. :D
And finally :iconskvor: gallery is a journey to new horizons of tale telling. You won`t regret visiting his gallery.

Stay free and inspired, people. :D
Working on a new one by Denis-V
Working on a new one
Enough for today. :D I`m working on new drawing and as you can see I`m pretty close to end it in a good way. This photo shows sketch on two layers of vellum, therefore, you can see that her hand is not yet finished. Took this one with cellphone, that`s why it looks a bit blur. :) See you around with finished drawing.

Drawing is my hobby and I still keep it that way. I`m no professional, and as you can see, I mostly draw girls in historical outlets.

Think my sisters beautiful don't you?  I'd be careful if I were you, especially where dragons tread. Thanks for the fave, Aegon Targaryen.
