You're The Reason I'm Leaving by chibipandora You're The Reason I'm Leaving by chibipandora
Watercolor painting! Kinda large one too! It took two scans to get it scanned, but I'm pretty proud of it.

;_; 'Cept it doesn't look as nice scanned. For instance, you can't tell there are scruffy sorts of Roman Numerals in the background from I to XII.

Its... kinda Cinderella-ish, but that wasn't the orginal intention.

Credit go to *LongStock because she was the lovely referance.

:sing: Music used: Lot of Sting and The Police while painting. Franz Ferdiand while drawing and inking and some of the painting. Thats where the title comes from.

This is such a nice painting, I love the soft washes and texture against the bold outlines. I'm also digging the clock tower in the background.

I love the slightly art-noveau feel to the hair! Very cute pic :) The pattern on the corset and the textures in the background are my favourite details. Nice composition!

I really like this. Tis a shame that when picture's are scanned it's not the same quality.. but if this is the lower quality of the picture, it's still incredible. I can only imagine what it looks like irl.
Keep up the fantastic work!

Watercolor is fun to mess with but I've never been really good . . . . xD I wish I could see the original D: You can probably see the colors better too <3 I love it though ^^

o.o Its defintally a tough medium. I read books about watercolor the whole week before I started this, so thats one reason I'm getting better at them.
And yeah ;_; its better in life. But then, scanners flatten pictures and I think most traditional work looks much better in real life.

Yeah, especially paintings . . . because of the texture. Texture is a big thing in a lot of traditional media . . . photographs and scanning just can't ever capture it right. Kinda sucks . . . D:

I know what you mean with the scanning.. How it never turns out as well as it does when you're actually looking at it. Nonetheless, it's still a pretty kickin' piece. The only thing that's kind of strange is that the background doesn't seem to fit. Perhaps that's what you were going for, though. I'm so bad at telling those kinds of things. XD
I really like it. ^_^

Yes! They're so awesome!

No, I completely agree with you. I think the blue is too bright compared to the other colors that are duller. >.> Annnnd I'm going to blame the scan on that too, because it is still there, but not as obvious on the paper version.

:hug: thank you very much for the comment!
