Hello! Fortunately, the light came, but the water has not yet arrived since yesterday that we do not have, and well, I feel that I should already be used to these trances, but I have not managed to avoid becoming immune to all these situations (GREAT AND HUGE SIGHT). We go to the part that I took all this time without light to perform this reinterpretation of "The Sibylus Delphic", painted by one of the greatest masters who has trod this earth, the beloved Miguel Angel; It is located in the Sistine Chapel along with other frescoes of the prophets of the Old Testament, these Sibyls were considered pagan because they could supposedly see the future, in fact, it unwinds a scroll that could contain a prophecy, while looking to the right with a surprise expression.

“The sibyls were characters of antiquity, of pagan religions prior to Christianity. Their role in Greek civilization was of capital importance and they came to influence wars and governments of the "polis". The most famous of them all was the Sibyl of Delphi, or Sibylla Delphic, located in the navel of the world, as Delphi was considered. The role of the sibyls was similar to that of the Old Testament prophets; It was considered that they possessed divinatory powers and among them a belief was extended in the end of the world and in the arrival of a savior, which the Christians quickly adapted to their Messiah, extending the announcements of his coming even to the world of Greco-Roman Antiquity. Michelangelo had trained in the Neoplatonic Florence that sought to bring together the concepts of Plato's Greek philosophy with Christian beliefs, in an attempt to make religion rational and understandable. For this reason Michelangelo raises the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel divided into three strips: in the center, scenes from the Old Testament and Genesis related to the presence of God in the world. On one side, the Jewish prophets, and on the other, the sibyls. This Delphic Sibyl is one of Michelangelo's most beautiful, who had a lot of difficulty painting female figures, since she used to simply draw the muscular body of an athlete and attach two female breasts. After the sibyl, who no longer looks at his texts but attends directly to the presence of Christ, there are two little angels who read the prophetic texts about the arrival of the Messiah. This attitude has to do with the presence or remoteness of the divinity, as we can understand in the figures of Zacariaso Ezekiel.” (Excerpted from; Art History)

It makes me laugh the face that I made because mine has an expression of disgust, I think it is influenced by the lack of light and water 😂❤
The image is taken from this book that I borrowed from the library of a very cultured lady, already 87 years old, always looking to start a conversation about culture and art, in addition to telling me about all her experiences traveling, in fact, the book acquired when she went to Italy, she told me how amazed she was when visiting this sanctuary that contains such beautiful pieces, I know that one day I will go see it with my own eyes, and when that happens I will cry for the aesthetic experience I will have in that moment, until then I must settle for the images in the book.

Hola! afortunadamente llegó la luz, pero aún no ha llegado el agua desde ayer que no tenemos y bueno, siento que ya debería estar acostumbrada a estos trances, aunque no he logrado evitar volverme inmune a todas estas situaciones (GRAN Y ENORME SUSPIRO). Vamos a la parte de que tomé todo este tiempo sin luz para realizar esta reinterpretación de "La Sibila Délfica", pintado por uno de los más grandes maestros que ha pisado esta tierra, el queridísimo Miguel Angel; se encuentra ubicada en la Capilla Sixtina junto con otros frescos de los profetas del antiguo testamento, estas Sibilas eran consideradas paganas porque supuestamente podían ver el futuro, de hecho, ésta desenrolla un pergamino que pudiese contener una profecía, mientras mira hacia la derecha con una expresión de sorpresa.
.

“Las sibilas eran personajes de la Antigüedad, de las religiones paganas previas al cristianismo. Su papel en la civilización griega fue de importancia capital y llegaron a influir en guerras y gobiernos de las "polis". La más famosa de todas ellas fue la Sibila de Delfos, o Sibila Délfica, situada en el ombligo del mundo, como se consideraba a Delfos. El papel de las sibilas era similar al de los profetas del Antiguo Testamento; se consideraba que poseían poderes adivinatorios y entre ellas se extendió una creencia en el fin del mundo y en la llegada de un salvador, que los cristianos rápidamente adaptaron a su Mesías, extendiendo los anuncios de su venida incluso al mundo de la Antigüedad grecorromana. Miguel Ángel se había formado en la Florencia neoplatónica que pretendía reunir los conceptos de la filosofía griega de Platón con las creencias cristianas, en un intento por hacer racional y comprensible el entendimiento la religión. Por esta razón Miguel Ángel plantea el techo de la Capilla Sixtina dividido en tres franjas: en el centro, escenas del Antiguo Testamento y el Génesis relacionadas con la presencia de Dios en el mundo. A un lado, los profetas judíos, y al otro, las sibilas. Esta Sibila Délfica es de las más hermosas de Miguel Ángel, que tenía mucha dificultad para pintar figuras femeninas, puesto que solía simplemente dibujar el cuerpo musculoso de un atleta y adosarle dos pechos femeninos. Tras la sibila, que ya no mira sus textos sino que atiende directamente a la presencia de Cristo, hay dos angelitos que leen los textos proféticos sobre la llegada del Mesías. Esta actitud tiene que ver con la presencia o lejanía de la divinidad, tal como podemos comprender en las figuras de Zacaríaso Ezequiel.” (Extraído de; Arte Historia)

Me causa un poco de gracia porque la mía tiene una expresión de desagrado, creo que influenciada por la falta de luz y agua 😂.❤
La imagen la saque de este libro que tome prestado de la biblioteca de una señora muy culta, ya con 87 años de edad, siempre busca entablar conversación sobre cultura y arte, además de contarme sobre todas sus experiencias viajando, de hecho, el libro lo adquirió cuando fue a Italia, me decía lo maravillada que estaba al visitar este santuario que contiene tan hermosas piezas, yo se que algún día iré a verlo con mis propios ojos, y cuando eso suceda voy a llorar por la experiencia estética que tendré en ese momento, hasta entonces debo conformarme con las imágenes del libro.

STEPS/PASOS

I used the color red to sketch the face, while partially "taking the measurements", I put it in quotes because I really do not do that so I did it very superficially in the way that my teachers told me that I should NOT do hahahaha. I was filling with red first, then to generate the shadows I threw the blue on it creating a purple hue.

Utilicé el color rojo para bocetar el rostro, mientras parcialmente "tomaba las medidas", lo coloco entre comillas porque realmente no suelo hacer eso así que lo hice muy superficialmente de la manera en la que mis profesores me decían que NO se debía hacer jajajaj. Fui rellenando primero con el rojo, luego para generar las sombras le eché el azul encima creando una tonalidad purpura.

You have to manage very well the human anatomy to generate a result remotely similar to the works of Michelangelo, I honestly lack a lot, that's why I can not remove the grimace of disgust from the face of my drawing.

Hay que manejar muy bien la anatomía humana para generar un resultado remotamente parecido a los trabajos de Miguel Ángel, a mi, sinceramente me falta muchísimo, por eso no logre quitarle la mueca de desagrado del rostro de mi dibujo.

🌿 🌿 🌿

I tinted the face with yellow, accentuating certain areas, in addition to providing a greater volume to the face.

Maticé el rostro con amarillo, acentuando ciertas zonas, además de brindarle un mayor volumen al rostro.

The drawing that is next to it is one that I am trying to do on the cell phone with the app, be patient, when I finish it I will upload it, if it looks good, because I still can't get the technique to the question.

El dibujo que esta al lado es uno que estoy intentando hacer en el celular con la app, tenganme paciencia, cuando lo termine lo montare, si es que me queda bien porque aun no logro agarrarle la técnica a la cuestión.

There is something that I do not enjoy doing beside the backgrounds, and that are the clothes, generating the folds seems very tedious for me, I think it is one of the reasons why my figures are always naked (curiosities of Saouri) 😃. Finally, place geometric figures in the background with the colors she wore on her dress, a little to avoid losing continuity and give greater dynamism and color to the composition perceiving it much more vibrant, not forgetting the personal touch that generates the lines that It gives me pastel oil, on the other hand, I almost forgot, I highlight the area of ​​the head scarf, I love how that part was left, I think I ignore everything else because in that area the lines integrated so perfectly It seems as if they were part of a fabric print, it was an unexpected and beautiful result, it is those little things that fill you with surprise and love towards work. Something that caught my attention while coloring was the hair, possibly done with a dry brush technique, because it is like he did not take so much time there, however you can appreciate the movement of each fiber, in addition to some areas of the clothes that It has plot species, it's amazing how he managed to do all this and giant size I love him hahaha :(.

Hay algo que tampoco disfruto mucho haciendo además de los fondos es la ropa, generar los pliegues me parece muy tedioso, creo que es una de las razones por las cuales mis figuras siempre estan desnudas (curiosidades de Saouri) 😃. Para finalizar, coloque en el fondo figuras geométricas con los colores que llevaba en su vestimenta, un poco para no perder la continuidad y darle un mayor dinamismo y color a la composición percibiéndolo mucho más vibrante, sin olvidar el toque personal que genera las líneas que me brinda el óleo pastel, por otra parte, casi se me olvida, resalto la zona del pañuelo de la cabeza, me encanta como me quedó esa parte, creo que ignoro todo lo demás por esa zona porque es que las líneas se integraron tan perfectamente que parece como si formaran parte de un estampado de la tela, fue un resultado inesperado y hermoso, son esas cositas que te llenan de sorpresa y amor hacia el trabajo. Algo que llamó mi atención mientras coloreaba fue el cabello, posiblemente hecho con una técnica de pincel seco, porque es como que no se tomó tanto tiempo allí, sin embargo se puede apreciar el movimiento de cada fibra, además de unas zonas de los ropajes que tiene especies de tramas, es increíble como lograba hacer todo esto y de tamaño gigante Lo amo jajaja :(.

What a wonderful reinterpretation, Saouri, I think you captured the classical features well. And I love the colours you worked with here, too :D

Although, like you, I was quite amused that her expression seem to be one of critical opinion.... Maybe she's expressing her opinions about the black out!!!

Lovely step by step presentation, as usual, and I hope the electricity troubles will be lesser in the future.

Hug hug~
