I'm working on a drawing of my last girlfriend, who passed away seven months ago now. Losing her messed me up for a long time but now enough time has passed that I want to do something in her memory. I'm working on a drawing of her and I might end up doing a few. So far I've done a basic outline sketch from a photo, and I've been experimenting with ways of adding something before I go further, like a floral design with her name or a "Rest in Peace". I've attached what I have so far and a couple ideas I've sketched. I'm not really satisfied with any of them yet. The one of the rose in the corner reminds me of a network logo on a TV show for some reason. The one of the design on the top is better, and while I like the design I made (inspired by tattoo art), something's not right with it either.
I'd love any thoughts on what I'm doing. I don't tend to draw from my imagination very much, so ultimately I might just keep it simple and make it a drawing of her without anything cluttering it up. Suggestions are welcome.
