Earth Mother by armawolf Earth Mother by armawolf
This is for :iconelestrial:'s Fall Fantasy Contest!

So here's what happened...

I finished 'Withering Green Man' and thought I liked it. Then I looked at it again a few hours later and liked it a great deal less, and then less still, and eventually wanted to strangle myself for uploading the bloody thing. I thought there was promise there so I played with it a little more (deleted half of it and started over) and came back with something more akin to my liking (and one that didn't have a big giant black spot in the center).

Starring as the Earth Mother is :iconlockstock:
the background is still courtesy of :iconresurgere: (and the many, many textures)
the pedestal is from :iconstocklove:
the roots were snatched from sxc.hu

I give :iconabstractsilence: :icondarkartists-inc: :icondarkelements: :icondarktactics: :iconmanipulators: permission to post this in thier respective galleries.

:spank: now that was not at all corny..so spanks to you lol!! it was beautiful...you'd be surprised how many people use nature, beings of creativity to help them do their absolute best in some areas. as well as prayer and putting all of yourself in your works..that is what makes them stand out so much :nod: Blessed Night :sleep:

Whoever does not look at this in large-view is missing that wonderful texture. Excellent job of aging this image giving it a sense of an illustration for an old story book. And I can't believe that's Paige! Kudos for changing her just a bit. I've had friends say that they were tired of seeing her stock everywhere, and I tell them, "she has great stock, just change her face and hair some" (I mean, after all, we're artists, aren't we?). :clap:

there is such great expression of emotion in her poses that she was perfect for the story I was trying to tell.

There were times last year where I was practicing drawing with charcoal and conte crayon and I used her stock as a reference because of those great expressive poses.

Completely agree. I knew I would find just the pose I wanted for "Lucy In The Sky", and I swear, she looks like I painted her myself instead of using a photo. A good friend of mind said he was going to put another head on her body the next time he uses her, but I don't feel he has to go that far!

Hehe! This stylistically reminds me of the airy brushstrokes of the rococo...but its less fluff heavy. Wonderful earthtones...*droooools*
I love this one.
