My sis's half vampire, I've chosen to depict her in her later age, eternally young but with an old sadness in her eyes.
This is so atmospheric... as if she is in another world to ours. The delicate shades and blending of light are magical.
heh, sorri, I spose I took too many liberties with the character. when it came to painting her hair I figured that white was much more stunning than black, she's grown old and her hair has turned with all her hardships, u think of a good story to go with it. I'll draw Fnor later, a bit busy with work. Take care!
Wow, she is beautiful, and too bad you didn't draw F'nor. Mmm Nvm, maybe next time. Though there is one slight problem, Amarita hair is black, not white. :)All in all, its still a great pic.
I'm glad this piece reads deeper than its original intention, the longer I stare at it, a story seems to be manifesting behind her, she's still a mystery to me, maybe my sister can come up with some answers.
Its watercolour on real rough paper. I botched up the background in the original drawing so I fixed it in photoshop(aka cheating with filters ) but I left the character untouched cause I was rather pleased with her from the start.
For some reason I find this picture very beautiful - she looks more elvish than many actual pictures of elves. Not all the pointy ears and butterfly wings in the world could achieve the otherness of this character. The looks like one of elves from Tolkiens books... perhaps a Noldor elf who missed the last ship to Valinor - fading, but still full of light.
May I ask what medium you used for this? I think it's absolutely wonderful--reminds me a bit of Alan Lee's illustrations for "Merlin Dreams", in mood and technique. The lady is marvellous...especially her serene expression.
Beautiful and sad!
