A representation of Dawn. Sometime I'll be doing Dusk maybe :)

I just wanted to paint something pretty in a neoclassical, sentimental, bouguereau-ish way.

Airbrushed from scratch. :)

Beautiful! Just learned there's more than one kind of airbrushing. I pictured you holding an airbrush with your little compressor humming as you sprayed the melamine panel! Digital airbrushing is probably more hairtearing. I can do stick people on my paint program! :rofl: Wonderful as always!! :clap:

Teeehee! I actually used to airbrush with an actual airbrush and compressor ya know ;) I love the digital version - no mess, no expensive irreplacable needle equipment, no masking fluid that doesn't work as it should and woah if you make a mistake its not the end of the world.

Your work even though digital has fooled me more than once! I really love your style! This one will will go on my wishlist and someday will hang with Shooting Stars as a Hobby!!! (just got finished cleaning brushes and wiping up spilled paint on the floor). digital looks better every day!! ;)

Wow. She's so pretty. That's exactly how I'd picture dawn. New, happy, bright. Dusk would be older, wiser...but that's up to you. It's just my humble opinion. Haha!
meluseena's avatar
I like your interpretation of Dusk as older and wiser. But you would think of Dusk as an old Day - I see Dusk as a young Night.

:)

Oh. Yup. That's true. Tee hee. Again, it's all up to the fantastic artist. I really did appreciate your interpriation of Dawn. I have an OC character that's so familiar to that. It's amazing! And I really truly did enjoy your style. You painted that...which means you didn't use computer technology to color it or draw it, you took what was in your head and did it old school. Absolutely amazingly flawless!

Actually, it IS painted digitally - but there is no such thing as 'computer technology that draws it for you' - trust me, if you can open photoshop and make it draw for you, then I would be out of a job ;)
MermaidMia's avatar
Haha. No. that's not what I meant. I meant the people that....It's hard to explain. Those that don't really put much into it...they don't put creativity into it I guess. I mean...ugh. It's hard to explain!
meluseena's avatar
haha ok, I wasn't certain I understood correctly to be honest!
I always try to put a lot of brain into it.. but sometimes I just want to draw something pretty and more straightforward. XXX Thanks for your comments you know :)
