Even death doesn't seem so bad with goldfish swimming around. Maybe I'll write a proper description in the morning and you know...stuff.

I'm soooooo tired right now because I keep painting at night and wake up early anyway to learn 3d.

(


EDIT:

First of all I'm sorry if this shows up on your watch list again but according to FAQ it really shouldn't so please inform me if it re-appears.

I wanted to create something darker so that my gallery would have more variety. Besides it has been some time since I did the whole "red dress" thing. (more in my gallery)

I just let this picture paint itself really. I often stress the fact that people should paint more from reference but naturally the one who preaches doesn't practice his own advice. Just laugh at my stupidity and let it pass. The girl was a quick doodle on my sketchbook that I found shockingly full. (when did I draw all that crap!?)

Afterwards I drew more hands from reference of my own little palms and scanned them into the picture.

The burn marks from the chains on her wrists are maybe the most cruel thing I've ever painted in a picture. But I felt that I needed to tell the viewer that she can't get away even though she's trying to. =(

For some reason when I look at her I can see accurately what she's thinking. There are things she didn't get to do in life that she was trying to do. The death looks like she (well it's really female looking to me :confused: ) understands what the girl is feeling with pity. But she's only a gear in the machine of life that she can't stop.

Especially in comparison with your other pieces, I like this a lot. Not too eerily bright, the darkness makes it seem all the more real.
I'm off to search your gallery for a tut.
Please make one if there isn't!

Very nice. Death looks really fluid and...cool-looking. The funny thing is though, when I look at this, the atmosphere seems thicker than water or air....as if they are suspended in oil.

simply winderful - as an artwork mind you, not the setting or subject - they are rather a bit on the disturbing side, especially at a bit past 1 at night with a new week just getting under way and All saint day having just passed by.


in memento mori


well deserved dd for the other piece, can see them contrasting rather well in posters

isn't that one of the nice things about devA...? passionate strangers giving you new and sometimes mind shattering views of your own work - and their minds by both their creations (or deviations), and the comments

it's all good :)

I really love how the hair and the smoke/ink flows, and how we get a sense of movement from everything from the goldfish to the smoke/ink to the watch. I also like the contrast of the red dress on green water and the goldfish with the chains.

Gorgeous and poetic!

You know, it's perfect. Very emotive. And it fits with how I feel right now perfectly... :/ A little frustrated with my low performance on art projects, though I'm sure for me it will be temporary, and not a death sentence.

Absolutely gorgeous! Sad, stunning and beautiful; you've captured the fluid movement of being underwater wonderfully, and the lighting and shading make the scene come to life... I also love the woman's pose, and how you can't see her face... so much emotion! Great job!

Now this is just gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. Love the color palette, the contrast between the red dress and the green of the piece is perfect, the texture in the shadows from the painting on the girl gives the piece a lot of depth, and then the contrast between that and the smooth sort of glassy flowing look of the face of the water -thing- looks so pretty
and the gold fish are just awesome ;)

and i understand you don't speak English well so all-in-all it's amazing gorgeous :]

I think I understand written English pretty well (most of the books I read are in English) just not well enough to give other people spelling advice. I speak and write my own language all wrong too but on purpose. =D
