Embrace the Enchantment by Crysenna Embrace the Enchantment by Crysenna
Honestly, I donít know what to say. Iím so tired of looking at this art piece, but maybe itís because Iíve been working on it for soo long, it looks like crap now....

Sadly, it never turned out the way I had pictured it in my mind; ggrrhh~!! I did try to give up so many times on this one, cuz REALLY....it was hard to color using just colored pencils (which is the only art tool Iím good at unfortunately). My attempt to use water color was just a blunder.....:ohmygod:

At the beginning, it looked very promising, but later on as I began to add layers, I realized it was much harder than I thought; the colors didnít blend right, also it looked kinda messy :crying: And it was rather frustrating as I couldnít undo the mistakes, because of the fact that this was done traditionally. :unimpressed:

Now, it looks worse after the scanner practically ruined it~! So many details are lost:sadangel: Iíll have to think twice about doing something similar like this. So, all I can say is....



I have no professional training T__________T
Have pity on me :cling:

Art and character © Crysenna
Done with Faber-Castell colored pencils, and flustration

I don't have any clue why you are so upset with this piece: it is lovely! A hundred times better than I could ever do. *claps* You shouldn't put yourself down! Lovely. ^_^

I really was amazed that you took so much time to have it come out this way, its good you planned so far ahead. the only thing I can see making it better is having no pen lines in it, the sharp pen contrasts with the free wings. Its still fantastic though!!!

*huge gasp* I couldn't help noticing in the description that you thought it looked like crap or something HOW COULD YOU EVEN THINK THAT??? *knocks some sense into you* Graaaaaah! What I wouldn't give to be able to create a piece of work like this!

lol that was the pose I took for this piece, but not entirely since I made her right arm stretched out. I actually really liked this image when I saw it on a jigsaw puzzle box. I took a picture of it in my handphone as inspiration for this piece. Thanks for giving me the link. At least now I can save the image in my computer ^^
