i started this one as a gift for my sister.. it was really personal at first, but then.. i sort of lost my heart for it, mostly because of all the little bugs that irks me.. still, i need to practice a lot so maybe one day i'll be satisfied with what i do..
anyway, it is kind of unfinished and will remain in such state, 'cause working more on it would ruin the mood completely..
took around 2 days of painting, repainting and swearing ^_~ no direct references used except for the hands and flowers (that would be my hands, hence the wanky fingers and some plastic flowers that are lying around in my room), i also looked at hundreds pics of mountains, swamps and skies to get the right shadows, but didn't really copy any of it.. done in painter 7.
so, well, i hope you'll like it, right?
*edit* oi, the close up's are here [link]
now you can see how messy my paintings are ^_~
