In Her Memory by MeliHitchcock In Her Memory by MeliHitchcock
This project I originally started back in 06, but due to a hard drive failure, I lost the original large resolution file. Back then I was just too frustrated to start over, but recently decided to finish it. I found a small JPG I had uploaded on the internet way back when I was still working on it, so I decided to use that as a spring board to finally finishing this. Rather than completely redoing it, I painted over the original small JPG after enlarging it, to get rid of all the pixels n stuff. =p

Anyway, the idea was to show V in a cluster of roses that he grew in Valorie's memory.

Done in Painter X

*sniff* Almost makes me cry. :( V for Vendetta's a beautiful graphic novel/movie. (Though I've only seen the film adaptation.) There isn't enough fanart for it, from what I've seen. D:

Awww, that's so cute!! And a very nice painting too! Love all the roses! :heart: Love V too. You got him looking just right!

*lol* In the movie it makes me frustrated each time that he dies... He's a nice guy so I want him to live. :cry:

Did you ever read the graphic novel? I think it's even more ace than the movie. They both have a different type of style to them.

Yeah it sucks that he does die, but really he needed to in order for Evey to take his place.

No, I didn't even know it was a comic before I saw the movie. ^^;
Maybe I should? Sounds good. :)

:cry: Yeah. But... she doesn't need to... I mean, they could have worked so well together!! :heart: Don't you think? :) But I guess... maybe I love it better because he dies then what I would have if it had just continued... :?
He's such a cool/interesting person.

That's a really expressive picture. Must have been hard to do becuase you can't see his face. Those flowers would have taken a long time, so congrats on your patience! :+fav:

Thanks! Yeah those flowers were painful to do, and I'm rather proud of myself for having the patience to complete them without doing any shortcuts. Usually if I find myself getting into any repetitious items in a painting, I get distracted too easily because I get bored. :XD:

You´ve done a wonderful job on this one! I particularly love the highlights on the hat and the cape, and the light reflecting of the roses and onto the cape is wonderful! YAY! Love it!

You´ve successfully taken a character from a well-established series and you´ve managed to blend him into your own style, or softness if you will, and I love it. ;)

Thanks! Some projects just don't seem to die, this was one of them. I really was devastated when I lost the first file, but given that it's been 2 years and my patience has grown a tad, I was able to sit and draw all those flowers. I was pulling my hair out the first time trying to find short cuts to it when there really weren't any. :XD:
