It's your imagination, love by asa-bryndis It's your imagination, love by asa-bryndis
I bet most of you are confused by that title!

Well, this happens to be a request by my friend =Fayestardust, who is a person of great patience. It's been quite a long time since this was requested, but I sure hope you like the results, Maartje!

It's a fanart piece with her two characters, Noah and Aine, who're in her novel in the making, The Book of Dreams. Those who're interested can see what's been written in her gallery, check it out! [link]

Thought I'd include the short extract from the scene I'm illustrating:

""I have to stop this?! You're the one holding the sword!" she screamed back at him and yelped as Noah pulled her towards him quite suddenly to avoid her being hit by the dragon's tail. She half crashed into him, grasping his tunic to steady herself. When she became aware of their proximity, her cheeks flushed.

"It's your imagination, love." Noah said quietly with a bit of a grin before he broke away, joining the others again."


And hence the title! Also hence the blurry background, this is happening in a dream, so I made it all quite blurry.

But yes, this is my officially first real digital painting, hoorays in order! Pretty proud of that. I could make quite the list of what I learned from this one piece. Thankfully Maartje tolerated my long time of experimenting to get this right! :hug:

This one is beautiful work! I like hands too, by the way. I think it's the detail, all those interesting nooks and crannies.

Thank you so much! :) Yeah, it's probably my most detailed work so far, took its sweet time too. But it was very fun and I learned a lot.

Oh wow ... it's wonderful to see what a wide range of colouring tecniques you've got, gives your pictures a very nice variation!
You might want to be careful with the backlighting, especially the white highlights above the guy's belt, it seem like they're coming out of nowhere.

But other apart from that, great work on everything!

Wow, you put your heart and soul into this piece! Damn I bet it took you ages and it turned out absolutely gorgeous :heart: The detail is amazing as well as the inks, colors, and shading. I love her soft expression and how dainty her hands look. Her lips look fantastic and I love both of their noses especially :) If this is your first digital piece then I can't wait for more :w00t: You've tremendously improved over the years :nod:

Speaking of Brittany, isn't she drawing anymore? What's up with her? :)

ForeverRogue Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2008
Oh it definitely shows :) I might need to get some tips from you :D

Nah, Brittany's not drawing anymore. She has a lot of health problems and she's working 24/7 :( She has a mean, evil boss that I'd like to kick the snot out of. He claims she doesn't do enough work when she practically eats, breathes, and sleeps her work >_< He needs a good kick in the ass and needs to realize he's not God before getting down on her so much. We hardly get to do much together anymore since she's so ill and working all the time :(

Aw, I'd be more than happy to help if you want any tips or hints! Just note me :aww:

I'm so sorry to hear about Brittany's situation :( Isn't it possible for her to change jobs? This kind of working situation doesn't seem healthy at all! Isn't she in a union or some sort that she could talk to? I'm just devastated to hear this! I also didn't know that she was tackling health issues, I'm sorry to hear that. Even more of a reason to quit that silly job! What exactly is she doing there? I mean, if it's damaging her already fragile health, I'd say switch immediately. Give her a hug from me, won't you? :aww: I'll be sending her some happy thoughts!

Thanks :aww:

My dad works at the same place so Brittany would never leave him because she's the only one who can help him with all his work. They're both in the quality department so my dad would have a major amount of stress piled on him if it weren't for Brittany :eek: She mainly does paper work, filing, computer stuff, sorting orders and a ton of other stuff. She really likes the job, it's just that her boss puts so much pressure on her. She and my dad haven't even had any vacation time this year :( Hopefully Mike will let her go to Disney World. She was crying yesterday because Mike was piling so much work on her and she just can't do it by herself. It's a small company, but I don't know why Mike doesn't hire someone else. If he wants the business to grow then he needs more employees. My dad's been with the company before I was born I think o_o So it would be really impossible for them to switch jobs. They get paid really good, but I just feel sorry for them having to work all the time. I wish I could do something for them :( But thanks for the happy thoughts for her, I'll let her know :hug:

Oh, I see, this is a pretty delicate situation then. But since your dad is a veteran there, doesn't he have enough respect/status to say something about this and be listened to? Surely he can't let his boss treat his daughter like that! It's just unacceptible. They could maybe call internal affairs, even? I realize this is a small company and all, but that's no excuse for his behaviour! I just wish I could do something, this makes me infuriated. I just really hope this will get sorted out soon enough, for both Brittany's and your dad's sake. Best of luck to all :aww:
