Collab with Amarantheans 
:iconamarantheans:
It's a companion piece for her poem Hope, full

And an entry to the collaborative contest New Year - New Contest - Extended - 10th March!! hosted by Understood-Accepted
Our pair got awarded 3rd place: New Year - New Contest - Winners Announced!

Watercolour and white ink on paper, A4




Well, no, the text isn't included this time.
It's just that winter is so hard and... yeah didn't think further ^^
Plus, the time constraint didn't help.

I mainly used two pigments: Cinderous Blue and Venitian red (I love these colours)
I used salt for the background texture.
And a paper towel, was very useful here.
The photo references used are my own.

As far as the collaboration is concerned, it was a very pleasant experience, since we both worked on the text and the image.
By that I mean that we would consult eachother during the creation.
The initial sketch of the painting, for example, was make during a skype conversation.

I really liked working on the imagery, the main here being the "bloody moons".
I liked taked a simple fact that would impress our character in the "real life" and magnify it in her mind.
As she's wearing a sor of night gown, this could be one of her nightmares.

One thing I noticed while working on this, is that the character resembles very much the one I created for the Awareness of the Arts: Your Dreams Are In The Stars
It's like her older version. Both in the night, reaching for the Moon.
It's... really interesting.

So, hm, that's about it, I guess.

First of all, I really enjoyed this piece, since the pose is simultaneously dynamic and rested within the sickle of the moon. Besides, the colours are truly wonderful (I really have to consider to bulk up my own colours palette with those...). On "Watercolorists" you mentioned that you struggled with the shading and I must admit that in this particular piece I cannot detect any specific negligence in this matter. Since the lighting is dreamily diffuse, so are the shadows. Indeed, any more directional lighting might have taken something of the piece's etherealness, except maybe if you had chosen the moon as the only lighting source, thus only brightening her face, left arm and right upper arm while leaving everything else to the shadows. Therefore, I would suggest to work on your shading skills on a completely different sort of painting, preferentially based on a high contrast reference picture. (Personally, I would even go for a black and white one since colour can be really distracting when working on pure brightness/darkness, at least in my experience.) One thing I noticed was, that her right lower arm appears a little twisted, probably because the line indicating the crook of the arm is drawn too close to the elbow, which also produces too large of a bulge. Apart from this, I find this a very well-made work of art.

You still haven't received any advice on your painting...it's so sad Bunny Emoji-07 (Emoji Cry) [V1] 

Then let me be the "helping hand".

I really like this painting you did. The concept is so good. You have improved a lot on drawing the body. Your knowledge is clearly visible. The white light that shines from her is so divine :love: In a way I can't imagine to see this painting any other way. It's one, if not the one, best painting you have done so far :blush:

I wish there would be something to improve, but I can't see what. ^^;

I think the dress turned out really nicely! The character in the picture really, really glows. 
I like the idea of heaving a darker coloured moon as well. The reddish colour really stands out from the blue background. And it helps to really make the character pop off the page! 

Well done! I hope to see the whole thing put together soon! :D
