Dorky Colors by Cupric Dorky Colors by Cupric
Well, I always said that College would be the end of me one day - I just didn't think it would be the end of my sanity.
But.
There was, undoubtedly, a little pretty girl with butterfly wings sitting on my nose. Quite comfortably so.
"I apologize in advance, but I'll bring you to my Prince now", squeaked said little lady.
"But why?", I asked. I admit, not my brightest moment, but there was a tiny person sitting on my nose...!
"You have green hair. And He said to bring someone who looks like me, but human-tall and without wings."
"But.. that's just hair dye!"
"I don't care", she/it chirped, " I always follow His orders. You'll come with me."
"You can't kidnap me, I have mid-terms!", I hastily exclaimed.
"Is that some sort of sickness?"
"Eh.. kinda, yeah?"



I caught the flue and am pretty out of it. But I felt like doing a speedpaint to relax. Somehow I ended up liking those neon outlines.. so I kept them XD
Have fun and remember, the weekend is neeeear!
*coughs herself back under her blanket*
PS, the Al fanart will be the next thing I'll upload.. I think.. XD"

yep yep, her story is that she's a normal modern day girl, who just colored her hair green and get's into a fantasy setting because the little fairy takes her for a human-sized fairy^^

Hello! I’m from:iconprojectcomment:


What I like about this :

-Her expression is so funny and spot on! It has disbelief, surprise, but at the same time you can almost see her thinking : ‘’ok, this isn’t the weirdest thing that happened to me’’. Probably not an easy expression to pull off, and not one you see often. I also like that her expression is slightly assymetrical on purpose. It makes the whole thing more lively.

-The colors are so vibrant and bold! I love the neon pink outlines in the hair. Not something I’d thought of doing, but it works really well.

-I like that the little fairy has the same hair color as the character. It can interpreted in so many different ways that even a simple drawing like can have a story. Is the fairy an interpretation of the character or their meeting was just a pure coincidence because the fairy was attracted to the big human with green hair as well.

-Congrats for perspective! It is tricky to work with, but it adds a lot of dynamism to the picture. You pulled it off well, especially since you considered this to be a speedpaint.


What I think could be improved :

-The folds in her sweater make it hard to read the shape. I am not sure what is going on with the folds on her right arm. It seems like the underarm and elbow creases are together. The fold on her torso makes it seem like it is her breast, but really low. I was a bit confused at first.

-The fairy casts no shadow on the girl’s face. The light source seems to be coming from the top front, so the fairy should have a shadown underneath her.

-I’m pretty neutral about the background. I feel it doesn’t add or remove anything from the picture. It’s just there to look pretty.


Overall great picture! Even if it is a speedpaint, the fact that the face and the fairy, the two most important points of the picture, are completed, it doesn’t look incomplete.

Thank you for this detailed critique!
I'm definitely on the same page regarding the folds - they kinda ARE my nemesis XD
..and yeah. Totally forgot the fairie's shadow. I could go now and try to lie saying 'Oh, she is supposed to cast no shadow as she's an illusion!'.. But that would be a plain lie, haha.

Again, thank you for taking the time to give proper critique! :cuddle:

Hey found your piece through ProjectComment 

The pic has a very soothing background, kinda reminds me of Esher art, where you see it in the bottom and looks like just randomness to keep the background interesting, and at the top, the randomness forms into a clear flower petal pattern. Also I can't really explain why but the lines so vibrant colors, but the lines are so thin, it just gives a feeling of ourworldly-ness.  
 
There is something about the eyes though... the pupils and the eye lashes are a bit too "well-done" that they don't match up the airbrushing of the face and cloth, nor the gradient of the background. They take a little out of the 'dorky' feeling of the picture. But kudos on having your eyes actually meet the girls own eyes. 

This is one fun picture!
