69 Phoenix by anachsunamon 69 Phoenix by anachsunamon
The requested and long-awaited phoenix for :iconmansongothic:.
It took me much time and effort, whole 5 weekends of 000 brush work. I'm fully aware of ruined anatomy (both hands), I was too tired and overworked to even care. Your critique in this matter is not desired. Also, my scanner ate all the orange and made it look more red than it actually is (same old problem with orange). Check out the WIP photos, good colours there. Enjoy :)


:bulletyellow: 69. Phoenix (obviously)
:bulletyellow: 5. Phoenix for =mansongothic
:bulletyellow: Details: [link] See why it took me so long...
:bulletyellow: Work in Progress: [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]

size: 34x46 cm
medium: W&N Watercolours on Fabriano paper, 000 W&N brush, mech pencil.
stock: by =lindowyn-stock, though I can't seem to find this shot, perhaps it was removed.

One more thing, those 'bubbles' in the background were not my idea. They were invented (LOL) by a great artist known on dA as *puimun. Her magnificent watercolor walkthrough can be found here: [link]

I think the credit for rich and intense colours goes to Winsor&Newton watercolours, which have very, VERY agressive pigments. Credit for details goes to me, my "000" brushes, my patience, my "dry on dry" technique and over 5 whole weekends stolen from my life :)

Thank you so much for visiting & commenting! :w00t:

Don't be silly :) I'm not an artist, this word is way too strong. Just because I'm patient enough to spend an entire month on one picture doesn't make me an artist. Just like the fact that you don't doesn't say you're not :hug:

Nie chciałbym palnąć głupoty, ale nie widząc stosownej informacji dochodzę do wniosku, że nie jest to fanart Jean Grey z X-Men. Może i po trochu szkoda, bo idealnie pasuje do tej postaci.

To, co podoba mi się tu najbardziej, to fakt, że całość faktycznie "płonie". Intensywne, mocne, wręcz soczyste barwy to poniekąd twój znak firmowy, jednak za każdym razem gdy je widzę, nieodmiennie budzą mój zachwyt i podziw. Z operowania barwą uczyniłaś markę, co rzadkie, bo zwykle większość artystów raczej koncentruje się na kresce lub tematyce. U Ciebie może być zaś cokolwiek, ale po sposobie, w jaki nałożono barwy bez trudu będzie można poznać kto to malował.

Nie bawiłaś się tu w malowanie "realistycznych" płomieni, wszystko ma typowy dla ciebie, magiczny wymiar a jednocześnie niemal czuć od tego namacalny gorąc. Nie bez kozery mówi się, że ogień jest jedną z najtrudniejszych rzeczy do namalowania. Nie dla Ciebie, jak widać.

Mysle, ze nie ma tu co oszukiwac - nie poradzilabym sobie z namalowaniem realistycznych plomieni akwarela. Tak sobie teraz o tym mysle i chyba rzeczywiscie nie dalabym sobie rady, jakos mi sie to po porstu w glowie nie miesci. No to juz sie nie sililam na realizm, chociaz moze kiedys i do tego dorosne. Na razie tak mi odpowiada. Jak powiedziales, jest wystarczajaco gorace.

Jean Grey pasuje jak najbardziej, ale zauwazylam to dopiero po Twoim komentarzu. Troche to glupie, bo calkiem niedawno po raz kolejny przeszlam przez wszystkie czesci X-Men. Mozna sobie mowic o tych filmach rozne rzeczy, ale naprawde pobudzaja wyobraznie i chocby z powodu sposobu przedstawienia postaci bardzo dobrze mi sie je ogladalo. A ewoluujaca Jean az sie prosi o fanarty.
