Isn't she beautiful! What I love most about this piece is those flowing and organic lines. It reminds me of Alfons Mucha's "Le Soir" and "Le Nuit." I love the piece, but I feel a little off at the composition... the tree branch for me interacts in a strange way with the geometric forms in the border. (It curves in an interesting egg shape though.) Maybe you could resolve it by making other branches that reach further up and the composition might not feel so cut-in-half? I think it would serve to break up the space and connect her and the tree with the background. That just the advice though!
It's a lovely piece. It's cool to see one of your pieces before it's colored!! Your technique and the differences in line quality are beautiful.
I see the Mucha but I get a sense of Escher when looking through the hole but not Escher. I don't think that was intentional. Am I wrong? Man, your details raises the bar on my details. Now I know the skills better of the master.
I love the layout and all the sketchworked details. I have been trying to ink a lot lately and I would lover to try and tackle this one! If I can get the time to do it! I will send a link for sure and give all the cred to you for the pencils and stuff!!!!! NICE WORK. I think it is well worthy of being finished by you!!!!!
Well I am laid up at home for the next few day and I am really wanting to try a few new techniques (at least for me) and will probably try it tonight. Keep up the GREAT work. Your stuff is always a pleasant surprise in my inbox. Look forward to showing you some completed work sooooonn..
i love the details and composition! You have a strong influence of art nouveau in your works. just an observation. i love art nouveau. it gives this really fantasy/mystical/feminine feeling. It reflects on your works that's why I like it. it also reminds me of alphonse mucha.
I like this plain sketch because even if you made a lot of details, it still has this "breathing" going on. I mean, it doesn't look cluttered or over-the-top detailed work. It's simple but elegant at the same time. GREAT JOB!
Pink Parasol, I love this. Seriously, I love your coloured work, but the hours of fun I would have had as a child if you had made colouring-in books back then. Do it now! I'd buy it. How long did this take? How were you planning on colouring it in? Digital? Or would you do watercolours? Rub the pencil out? Your coloured work reminds me of Brian Froud. A lot. Hope you take that as a compliment - I love Froud. I did a coloured version for my own amusement - as far as I'm concerned it was the perfect way to spend a quiet weekend. Never too old for colouring in.
