Esmerelda Colouring Book page by nefgoddess Esmerelda Colouring Book page by nefgoddess
fter seeing Yumedust's coloured colouring book page on her DA [link] I decided to do one of my own. I settled on Esmeralda (Page here = [link]), of which I coloured using the colour pallete from Bouguereau's (yes the same artist as Yume, but hes one of my fav's so i figured it was ok ;p) painting Tricoteuse (Image = [link]). Initially I wanted to use his painting "Rest" for the colours (I have it on my wall) but decided to go with a more restricted colouring scheme.

Oh and for the record...digitally painting stone is freaking hard without using existing textures. I did use a combination of dry brushes and pastels in Corel Painter 9.5 which did help, but got tiring after a while. No photo textures used and only reference used was the Bouguereau painting.

5ish hours
Corel Painter 9.5
Esmeralda Colouring book page is copyright Disney.

Ryan Wood ([link]) and Sam Nielson ([link]) have also done the same with Belle and Jasmine pages!

I like that she still resembles her cartoon self, but in a very sophisticated way. The coloring is amazing. Stones are just about impossible. :P

This is gorgeous! Way to take a coloring book page and really make her look realistic! The folds and textures in the clothes are amazingly done, not to mention the pretty shine in her hair as well :heart: Excellent job!

Melanie, I went to the link and saw the bare bones of your astonishing rendering and work of art. Just Wow, totally amazing painting and airbrushing. You have great deal of talent. Like so much talent here on DArt, you're probably very young. I'm beginning to feel like an old hack artist. I'm in awe. Gerry

It's great! It really have the feeling of a Classical painting as well! I did the colouring book as well, but I don't think (I know I didn't) I succeeded in making it in the style of the old classics! Well done! :) Fav.
