Colored sketch commission for
Requested were characters Xue and Lian....they "speak" together with a particular language with their hands so, they're quite close everytime.
Idea for them : Angst and wicked scene when Xue is empress or a soft scene when they're in the beginning of their love.
Colors : Cold colors, pale blue, pale purple...
The girl is blind and the boy is mute. Due to their bad destiny, she ended up as Empress against her will and he cannot help her nor reach her anymore, despite being the Strategist of Imperial Chancellor.
I picked the angsty approach on the scene. I think this would be sort of scene where they meet and it is clear to him he cannot "speak" with her as before - he cant touch her. I let her show him her back, as to declining him.
And he is in shock of the realization, he cant speak, but still opens his mouth instinctively, as if to speak, somehow reach her.
The color choice o the customer made me very happy, I love this combination a lot.
what I learned during making: use of colors, trying few attempts with lighting and mood impression
media: watercolors, business card paper, stencil pencil, white gel pen, format A5
music: Vangelis - Oceanic
