Artwork Description

After a long break, I finally got another pic finished. I used yellow paper, some brown colored pencils, black, orange and white. I did not have a specific thought doing this one, just for fun. Later I decided to try out new colors on this one...

You say its art, not a tale... well doesnt art tell a tale? Personally I think it does, otherwise I wouldnt love it so much. I love the "story behind" ideas..

But great work. Same picture completely different moods. I think its best to draw on paper and it means more.. photoshop is just a tool.

You do not know much about Fantasy, hm? Neither about art? First, adventurers always have a bag with them, containig extra clothes, stuff for sleeping, food, tools etc. If you would go on a journey by feet, several weeks just you in the nature, I don't think you would go just with some clothes and nothing else - it's cold in the night, but it's not always night. And second, it's art, not a tale, so who really cares about Smile

Poor little thing, she has to carry an extra bag with normal clothes Wink

I guess she's having her bag with some extra clothes right next to her on the ground, where you don't see it Wink

I agree... but isn't she cold at some time in the night?

Thank you very much, James! I think too it's one of my best pictures until now. The funny thing is: it's the only of all my pictures who was rejected first, the epilogue team did not approve it with reasen "work on anatomy" or something like that. I totally did not understand why, due to all my other picture got approved and they aren't as good as the new one. But fortunatley, they agreed finally Smile

Thank you, Jason. It's a poor medium, as I think. I wish I could draw on photoshop or something like this...

Thanks Scott! For the pose, I looked to a picture of a model, just changing the hair and the way she hold her arms...

So thanks to you as well Smile

Thank you, Katherine! It is easy to capture such a mood using yellow paper and some brown and orange colored pencils...

Great technique Daniel. Nice colors and I really like the pose. Nice job.

James already said it but it bares repeating-the textures in this are so well done. Your color choices are very pleasing to the eye as well. Good work.
