fineliners and watercolours
I made this work months ago- literally at the beginning of October. But didn't scan it before colouring and the colour I made was terrible, all over the place. Only by great luck and my sentiment to her footwear it haven't ended up in trash, or rather waste-paper. But as time went on I've decided to give it one more chance and recolour. Originally I was planning on doing that digitally, but I'm way to lazy for doing that. Instead I set some colour scheme in Gimp and took out the watercolours. I repainted her wings, the whole background, refined her outfit and hair- pretty much doe it all again.
That's why it's so painful the scan isn't good... But I adjusted it as much as I could (it still should be bit more warm purple, than violet in the back).
About the picture.
The idea was to design Mirta's final transformation- as one she would accessed by studying in both of her schools, which would relate to the design I've done for her before: www.deviantart.com/art/Mirta-2…
during her finals, where she'd be using knowledge from two magical traditions.
Honestly speaking I know I could easily called it idk "fairy's charm" whatever and none would get image of Mirta in their mind, but I honestly was thinking about her, when doing it. ^^
