Hello steemains! Today I brought an new artwork. It is a pencil drawing I made for a friend as a birthday gift.


Initially, I wasn't aware of her birthday until few days before the date. So I had to hasten and use two days to create this work. The drawing was completed the night before her birthday and presented on her birthday.

  • A person's birthday is a special milestone that is worth celebrating. There's no age limit for it. Whether the person is young or matured, it is important to give special attention to the person during one's special day - make the person feel special - it doesn't matter how valuable the gift may be.
  • Also, it is good to surprise peaple - whether friends, relatives or acquaintances - with a special gift without expecting or wanting something in return. No matter how small or big that present might be, you are touching someone's life. It could be reminding them that they still have someone who really cares about them. Making someone feel special is more than enough reason to make you give more.

  • While it feels good to be on the receiving end, there's a feeling of self-gratification when you are the one who is doing the giving. Even though this can't be measured in monetary value, giving provides more self-fulfilling experience that last for a long period of time.

Remember - A simple act of giving can provide a good respond in the long run.

Thanks a lot.

hehehehe i don't know - but I'm always fascinated when I see drawings of hair.... it just looks so real!!!! and i can't SEE how it looks so real with just a pencil!!! :) my mind only works in the dark of the pencil - so the negative of the light and reflection.... oh it just amazes me :)

you did a beautiful job! hehehehe


Thanks a lot.

The hair was the striking force of the work. When I saw the picture, I knew tte hair will be a challenge and also the best part of the work, so I opted for it. It took me a hell of time but I overcame the challenge. And I was happy it came out the way I had wanted it.

Thank you for stopping by and appreciating my work.

I love your attitude, especially on presents. I learned this lesson as a teenager. I had an art project to do and a friend whose birthday was coming up. I did the 3D project with my friend's name and mailed it to him. He was from a wealthy background, but he loved this - it was something personal and special - not something bought at a store that anyone could do!

Your art is amazing as well.


Wow that's great. Nothing special and captivating like giving out what you created or made from the dept of your heart to someone you admire. That was nice of you.
