Serenade of the Source

Medium :
Digital Painting
Software : Krita

"I finally found the origin of the enchanting melody I was hearing since I first set foot in these woods. The sound had led me to the source of the stream where I discovered a young boy, playing a kind of flute I had never seen before.
I wasn't the only one mesmerized by these notes. An assembly of frogs was gathered all around the spring, quietly listening to the serenade."


By the way, this flute is called a zhaleika; it's a Russian instrument :)

So beautiful and peaceful! :love: I love your paintings. They have so much depth to them... so much detail, and yet are so soft.

Yeah, I went a bit crazy on the details for this one, but I wanted to see how far I could go with vegetation and foliage :D

I'm sorry, all I see is Zelda references...

As a Zelda fan myself, I find it rather flattering ! :)
I guess it reminds you of the flute boy in ALTTP ? That's the closest I see ^^

Yes, I see that... but I also see the frogs and the name of the piece... Both make me think of OoT, with the frogs growing with each new song you played for them... and the song "Serenade of Water"...

I should play OoT again, I remember the frogs in MM but not in OoT ! :)
Thanks for the detailed answer, it's very interesting !

Joli comme d'hab'. :) Les couleurs sont bien choisies, c'est relaxant, voir même mélancolique. T'as fait les grenouilles dans tous les points de vue ! Ca n'a pas du être simple. Peut-être un truc qui me gène, c'est l'absence d'écume sur la fin du ruisseau, alors que la force des lignes suggère tout de même que le débit du court d'eau est assez puissant pour en provoquer. Mais l'eau est profonde ? Y'a une grenouille qui se tient sur la surface, je trouve ça bizarre. Après, bien joué pour le travail des détails, je suis toujours impressionnée par tes décors somptueux. =)

Les grenouilles étaient en fait assez fun à faire, c'est ce que j'ai peint en dernier :D
Pour l'écume une amie m'a fait la même remarque... En fait le problème vient du fait que je me suis inspirée d'un coin que j'avais vu dans un parc, sauf que c'était beaucoup plus petit et il n'y avait donc pas d'écume (d'ailleurs la cascade en arrière-plan est complètement improvisée). Bref, oui ça manque un peu de cohérence, je ferai plus attention la prochaine fois que je voudrai changer d'échelle de la sorte !
Pour la grenouille, elle était censée "nager", donc oui, c'est supposé être profond... Mais je crois qu'il y a encore du travail à faire là-dessus, le rendu de l'eau c'est pas encore ça :XD:

This is incredibly beautiful. It looks like the concept art for an enchanting animation. Is it for a children's book? I am definitely intrigued by what's happening. Wonderful work, and so imaginative.

It is just a painting I imagined. Though I like to create some little pieces of story when I paint, it is not associated to any story in particular :)
However, I would love to work on children books so the style and the theme are definitely geared toward it !
Thanks for your kind words :hug:

The funny thing is that, a couple of days after your comment, a friend of mine contacted me to present me a project of illustrated book for children she's currently writing. She asked me whether I was interested in collaborating with her on this. Her project is right up my alley in terms of style and theme, so I expect this will be a lot of fun :D

I'm glad you're noticing it :D I think I'm getting to it; I think my vegetation is looser than in my previous paintings while still being detailed, which what I was aiming to :)
I've tried several things with the colours and it is true that in the end I went for the most monochromatic option... Perhaps I'll try to revisit it in some months. I still have a lot to learn about colour and how to create harmonious palettes without relying so much on analogous colours !

I made a lot of warm illustrations recently, so it was time to paint something a little cooler :)
I've really enjoyed painting those frogs, it makes me want to incorporate more animals in my future works :D
