Nautili by juliedillon Nautili by juliedillon
This took WAY too long to finish. I started out with a random scribble in Painter X, and told myself that no matter what I was going to pull a finished illustration out of it. After struggling with it for weeks, this is what I finally ended up with. Robot lady with robot nautiluses. In other words, another goofy surreal illustration that makes little sense. :XD:

This is one of my favourite paintings ever, I saw a little cropped piece of this in an advert in ImagineFX and couldn't find who had painted it until I saw your interview in Fantasy artist magazine, you are my hero, go Julie!!

CONGRATS ON MAKING THE ARTWORK FOR PAINTER 12!!

I used a combination of cropping and tineye to find you here!!

That's how impressed I was by it, I just had to see the orginal in it full detail just once! The resolution is much lower than I expected it would have been.

I could see this as a wallpaper for the next release of Ubuntu... You should ask them if they will include a special wide version of it in the next release!

I swear, nautiluses are the weirdest animals ever. That being said, this is like a more fantastical, grown up version of Willy Wonka. I think it's the colors that remind me of it. Personally, I call for more surreal illustrations.

Beautiful composition, and even though I don't know if you meant to it seems to almost follow the divine proportion. The colors are also well put together and the light world beautifully on the smooth surfaces.
It's glorious for being a random scribble that became a robot woman being attacked by a swarm of nautiluses.
