Unspoken. by vinegar Unspoken. by vinegar
*EDIT* I've been willing to do it for AGES. Terribly sorry for spamming your message boxes, I've never done it before as I never really repaint my older pieces, but I finally managed to fix stuff that's been bugging me in this portrait.

Here you can see for yourself what's changed: [link]

I think the change is rather big and for good. Also it shows my progress after around a year. Hope you'll agree! :heart:

-----------------

something new finally. Her name is Marie, same as the person who commissioned this piece (although the only directive i got was to paint a redhead). there's some bigger idea behind this piece to be frank :)

it was a technical nightmare for me, spent way too many days on it. anyway - no direct reference used except for the birds. i don't know what kind of birds are these to be frank, i just googled "little flying birds" (seriously) and tried to paint something similar. i have to say i'm quite proud of many elements in this piece and i hope you'll like it too..

i hope it doesn't look weird. on my monitor it looks ok, but i checked it on other ones and it looked too bright and without enough contrast.. oh well. new monitor, new problems.

done in painter 7 + photoshop 7 for some additional textures on a pencil sketch as usual.

wip's coming soon or in a tutorial.

You say, "there's some bigger idea behind this piece to be frank."

I am eager and in want of knowing what the bigger idea is because I not only like this but I LOVE the title you gave it. So, if you have the time, please do explain in your fullest, sincerest ability what you convey in this piece.

Thanks! Have a bon day.

hmm.. it's kinda hard to explain as i just have loose thoughts about it. anyway, the idea was about her expression being a bit uncertain, she's not allowed to talk, as there are many things that are meant to be unspoken, but she collects and treasures them, what's been pictured in a symbolic way with the birds and gems. i hope it makes any sense at all ;)

niesamowite :-) no i fajnie, ze przemalowalas, teraz ma charakterek...ciezko mi okreslic, ale ma "to cos" :D naprawde respekt. te ptaszki, ta skora piegowata... wzor na tkaninie recznie malowany czy to jakis pattern/textura? : O
jedyna moja sugestia to aby dodac troszke intensywniejszego swiatla na wlosy :-)

Coś mi nie pasuje z lewym okiem o.O fajnie, że jest trochę bardziej wycieniowana i lepiej jej z tym kształtem policzka, ale wydaje mi się, że to lewe oczko jest jakby za blisko nosa? Hmm nie wiem, przemyśl to ^^ w każdym razie nadal ładnie sie prezentuje ( :

no jest, ale to akurat kwestia tego, że taką właśnie twarz chciałam narysować, nie zamierzam jej upiększać na siłę do jakichśtam standardów.. natomiast na pewno pomyślę nad jej wyrazem twarzy.
