Paintang I've been paintang for the past week. Had to scan it in two pieces, and obviously it looks... exactly... how it does on paper... *eye twitch* lmao My new scanner gets coloured pencils perfectly but watercolour still looks a little blotchy. :[

I had an idiot attack with the composition when transferring it to paint but I think it's okay regardless. I had more to say but my brain hurts Lol


Couple of my characters
Media: Watercolour, gauche, tiny bit of ink | 9 x 14.5 inches | 15 hours? based on how long I was listening to a free audio recording of Pride and Prejudice LOL

Amazing art work, reminds me of a scene from the movie "Not without my Daughter". Although i will however ask if you wouldn't mind telling me a little about this piece of art, whats the story behind it? whats going on? in case what i think is happening is false.

Thanks a lot! :) I haven't seen that movie (is it good? Did you like it? I'll probably look for it after this, haha!) so I'm not sure. Basically, what's going on in this painting is it's a group of bandits hiding out at the end of the day in their underground den, and the character in the back whips out the radio because there's some troubling information regarding their next target... or something like that. Maybe it's good news - but it's got them all paying attention. I'm glad it could keep your attention long enough to wonder. :D Thank you!

Ah, awesome story to the art i must say. The movie is really good in my opinion, gets your heart racing in some points, its quiet a long movie though. But worth watching!

Haha no worries! Basically it's a group of bandits in their underground hideout/den at the end of the days. The character in the back alerted them to the radio, which is broadcasting some troublesome/interesting information regarding their next target. Something like this - it could be good news. :P Either way it has their attention! Thanks a lot for the comments and for being interested enough to wonder and ask! <3

Free audio recording if Pride and Prejudice? That's how I read the book! It allowed me to stay focused on it for when I had to read it for school. It's a really good book.

The audio recordings help a lot with older books, I find! Especially when the language isn't really modern. It was a really good book - Elizabeth's mom was exhausting Lol

KevinRollins Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Oh yes, they really do help. I've listened to a number of classic books on audio. And Elizabeth's mom was a bit exhausting, but at least she cared about her children. There a plenty of fictional characters already who have parents that are either dead or worthless.

WOAH! I saw this on the DD bar and was like "hmm that looks like ashley's stuff -click-"
Congratulations ;O; You definitely deserve it :) I love that there's just as much detail on background objects as there is on the main characters.

What is this stunning piece of art?
I'm baffled. The colours, epic shading/lighting, realistic, fancy anatomy..
I spot nothing wrong here and asdjdasjasjdg just....all the detail.
Mindfuck of the day.
And I regret nothing. <3
