lost lights by Corianten lost lights by Corianten
I really can't get a good picture of something that size, not with a camera like this. :c

We had "light" as the theme of our finals this year and well, this is my piece.
It was supposed to have a great story behind it and everything cool but then a wonderful thing called the deadline sneaked up on me, so I basically just painted whatever and it lead to this. :'D

The lower part was made with acrylics, the middle part with indian ink and the upper with gouache paint I think?
And Copic Ciao markers used for the front piece.

Phew. I'm relieved that it's finished! And that I can be somewhat pleased with it too.

I absolutely love when I click "random deviation" and something this awesome comes up.

I love staring at this image, what are the dimensions?

Good: The image reflects the theme, but goes beyond it. The image possesses a great deal of originality; the mixed media, the triptych background, and the overall layering that makes you focus on the image. I love the colors, I could easily see prints of this hanging on fall apartment walls in cities with the modern simplistic style. I love the (I'm guessing elf) gesture's coloring and features. The face is almost feminine, the remaining anatomy very male, great work with the musculature, and I really, really love the tree.

Needs improvement: I'm a bit nit picky, and I'd like seeing the top panel more level, it works well, but I'm just weird like that I guess. I think the background looks great as a solid color that doesn't deteriorate from the details, but I think a little light pattern work would bring it a bit more together. Something a few shades lighter, and with thick lines. Something you wouldn't notice unless you were looking for it, just a bit more detail, you know?

Overall: absolutely fantastic.

Uh, well I absolutely love when people click the button and end up commenting me :'D Especially somehting this constructive, wow.

I'm flattered that you took the time to comment and point out all these things ♥ The things you mentioned are pretty much the things I was focusing on while making this, so I'm glad they didn't go unnoticed c:
And yes, my men tend to be very feminine, it's a matter of personal taste I guess :'D

The pattern thing really went through my head too, it just hit me so late that I didn't have the time anymore :c But it's funny that you thought of the same thing, haha~

Thank you thank you for the comments, it's very much appreciated ♥

You're welcome, I generally have trouble commenting, I just fave and move on, but occasionally as "training" I click "Random Deviation" and comment on every image. Yours was by far my favorite out of what I saw.
