Sleeping Beauty by PinkParasol Sleeping Beauty by PinkParasol
Maybe a WIP of a new painting. I haven't decided if I want to finish this or not...it was just a sketch for fun.

I uploaded a large size for anyone that might want to download and color... if you do, link me the image. I would love to see it!

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. :D 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. :love:

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'm not going to critique, simply because my only advice has been stated already above - the tree is exquisite but seems like it needs to be interacting more with the geometric border above it.

This work is gorgeous, and i would love to see you finish it, if you become inclined to do so

The way you create art is just so beautiful, i :heart: your work!

Thank you! I'm going to try to bring the branch up some more, and add to it. That way the arch is still there, but its not the only part of the tree that's noticeable.

I started to add some color to it as well, so I guess I'll see where it goes from there!

i love the details and composition! :) You have a strong influence of art nouveau in your works. just an observation. :D i love art nouveau. it gives this really fantasy/mystical/feminine feeling. It reflects on your works that's why I like it. :giggle: 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! :D

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.

Amazing. I love the different thickness and hardness of the lines, and the way they changed the perspective and shapes slightly. The details are gorgeous and really add so much to her.

Would love to see this coloured. Am kind of thinking of colouring it actually but don't know when I'd get a chance. haha. Will let you know if I do. ^____^
