Mistake by greaterorlessthan Mistake by greaterorlessthan
media: watercolor, copic multiliners, pencil

Worked on idly in the free moments I could snag at work.

My lovely Chance seems to have lost his tophat in favor of a Fedora?

"Mistake" by =greaterorlessthan is an amazing piece of art. It tells the story of something secret. The young man did something wrong. If it has to do with the dove, or if the dove only stands for it; this is the hidden secret of this artwork. Thinks like the little plant in his hands and the wings on his back strengthen this secret, obscure feeling the viewer has.

The technique is next to excellent! The artist works with GIMP, so it's even more remarkable that this is done so well! The colours fit together and draw an eye-catching, harmonic picture.
What do you think?

But fedoras are delicious and delightful too ^-^
That being said, I love the way the shadows are very vibrant and defined in the foreground, especially underneath the bench, and fade slowly into the background. The colors are gorgeous! As always, your technique and handling of the watercolors is excellent also.

Haha. Yeah, as I was painting it I on occasion worried I was using too much blue and purple, but I really like how it turned out. :) Thank you!

something about your painting makes me sit and look at it a lot longer then i normally do. at first i thought the face was saddened, depressed, but the longer i looked at it, he looks tired, but there is almost a smirk on his lips. the flow of detail is much more noticeable in this piece then some of the others.

i would totally buy this if i had the money.

It is a very nice traditional work. How it is related to GIMP?

I did my touchups in GIMP. You seem to be primarily a digital artist, so I'm not sure if you know the havoc scanners can wreck on a piece.

Ok, I think I can somewhat imagine the havoc, because I have some experience with scanning my pencil drawings - they tended to loose much of their contrast during the scan.
Keep up the good work :)

Damnation! The top hat is the only love. D:

This is quite lovely though. :) I like your plant life along side your bench. All of your art only seems to get better and better. The shading is wonderful and the choice of colors is always great. :3

I'm sure he will get his tophat back. I simply felt like drawing a fedora at that moment.

Perhaps he's being in disguise. :3
