Faeirdra by Ennaedwyn Faeirdra by Ennaedwyn
WOW! I finished her ( finally!!! ) I probably could of had her done sooner, but felt no great need to rush through it. I'm very pleased with the final result of this piece, granted there are some minor mistakes. Completed her yesterday, but I was not able to take a good quality image till today after flattened the paper out more (amazing what a ton of books on a piece will do)

Pretty much done in watercolor, some acrylic, gouache, colored , pastel and watercolor pencils on 300lb cold press paper and some inking to boot (still not 100% if I like to ink my outlines or go without...mmmmhhh)

Detail image found here [link]

Wery goot, it is very beautiful picture. I see that in it is Celtic a pattern, very much it is pleasant to me when the person which draws it mixes some styles in one picture. The main thing to be able to do it it is correct. :)

I'm hoping this is a step in the right direction for me...more detail and more...still trying to make the flesh tone and the faces have more a realistic feel as well, but I think slowly I'm getting there! Thanks for the compliments Rebecca! :w00t!:

your flesh tones are great! dont doubt yourself... though if you want more "real" look use blues/purples for shadow.... I started doing that with my water colors and it made a huge differance

Going back to my roots...remember the detail I used to do in pencil and ink...going to give it a whirl in watercolor, etc. and who knows, maybe digital will be next...well, after I do a commission for my sister-in-law of a dragon :giggle: Geez, I hope I don't make it look like a cute lizard w/ wings...

Thank-you! I like the new AV! Strikes me very "Dark Crystal" - I have no clue why, but it does...might be the length of the ears...anyway, I like it.

Ooh, you know I never thought about that. You are right though. I did grow up loving "Dark Crystal" and used to want to be a Gelfling when I was a twerp. Heh.

Females were so lucky. They had wings. I'd love to be able to fly in more than dreams sometimes.

Oh Wowzers! This is such a beautiful piece!
I love the colours you've used & all the details are amazing!
Was well worth all the time put into it :)
And IMO the inking works well with this piece. It adds definition without being obstrusive in any way. I like it! :)

Thank-you Marjolein! That is such a compliment coming from you!!! I have to agree with in the taking time process...of course, if the muse feels in 2wks and the flow is right, I say go for it. But with this one, I really wanted to take my time. Still not 100% sure if I'm a fan of inking...what do you use to outline your images with?

MarjoleinART Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2007
Your welcome!! :) I always use normal black ballpoint pen :) I think thats much easier then ink (but I never used ink before, but I think it's not easy to work with) I also make some shadow with the pen (as you van see in my journal...the work in progress of Feathers)
Good luck with all your new drawings!! :) You really have talent, I can see that allready!! :D
