Midnight Blues by vinegar Midnight Blues by vinegar
Another art challenge by :icondaekazu:, :iconmidnighttea7:, :iconvinegar: and, for the first time, :iconmaudt:!

For each challenge we interchangeably give ourselves an idea or topic to illustrate and a short, specified time to execute it in whatever shape or form... of course, without knowing what the others are going to come up with.

This week's topic is vinegar's idea: Midnight Blues. Whatever comes to mind when you think about those words.

___________

First piece in 2012! Always wanted to paint something titled this way, hence this topic now. Also an excuse to have some fun with Painter and leave some bits unfinished, not overworked as I tend to do. I'm quite fond of it at the moment :)

Done in Corel Painter and Photoshop, a loose ref used (some of my own resources, ekhem, party photos - hands and guitar mostly). Just in case - no ref used for the face, wasn't inspired by anyone etc.. People seem to find every single celebrity and themselves too in my more realistic faces but please, drop it. If I wanted to base it on anyone I would mention it. Really.

Fun fact: I hate blue. Well, most shades of it anyway. So that's pretty rare when you see a fully blue piece coming from me.

Very well drawn! I like how the blues are so soft on the eyes and how you designed the guitar. It's perfect! I love her eyes, they look so innocent and wonderingly at the same very sad and longing for something there. Perfect!
