Rapunzel by SeanNash Rapunzel by SeanNash
A piece for Blossom-Lullabies - blossom-lullabies.deviantart.c...

I used a photo reference from Blossom-Lullabies as she has a million lovely reference images to choose from that were perfect for a Rapunzel Piece. So a big thank you to her as it helped me big time to draw this up! :aww:

I originally drew hair going through trees and all sorts but it just felt way to over the top and so I decided to paint it with a bit more simpler hair as Rapunzel's hair is a challenge its self just trying to make it look like hair. I wanted the color and lighting to just feel right so I used a lot of glow brushes just to create that feeling that its night time, with some fireflies in the distance I felt there was nothing else to add to it.

Inspiration - Tangled
Software - Corel Painter - Corel Photoshop Pro

(After to rub my eyes a thousand of times, I will now be able to comment :D)
I just can't believe the beauty of your piece, in each point. I'm stupefacting :faint:
I don't know where to begin, all is so wonderful...
First of all, the atmosphere you created is truly magical. I love the way you made a beginning of the night scene, with the fireflies that appears, the dark colours (so well chosen and with a so beautiful soft contrast with the colours of the dress and hair). Your background is just perfect. You put so much enchanted touches in it, with the little point of water (even the reflection of the firefly on it :faint:), the colours, the way you placed Rapunzel at the center (she truly illuminates the work)... And the character in herself is so sweet, I really like her hair and the peaceful feeling giving by the posed glance.
I can almost feel the little cold weather that takes place during the evening, especially in a forest. I really like this sensations and it's a brilliant work to be able to share all these feelings in a picture :clap: And even if the scene is in a forest (not the best safe place for a princess), all is warm inside and all looks safe and in total peace. You made a good work with that too when you created a night forest but with a warm feeling, it's like a beautiful contrast :clap:
Thank you so much, to used me as reference. I'm very honored and take this piece like a wonderful gift. Thank you again :hug:
I put a thumb of your image under the picture reference ( [link] ). I will also feature your work when I will announce the winners of my contest, since you are totally in the theme and people have to know your work ! :aww: (And I really think that the three winners will be happy because if you was entering, they would have such a big contestant !)

(And thank you so much for your lovely description ! :heart:)

Oh and I love the flowers in the dress... And like the little brushes you used for texture and leaves... And the glowing pink of the corset... and just all ! :dummy: So much things to say :faint:

:aww: Thank you so so much! I'm so glad that you like it! :D

I wanted so much detail within the piece and also getting the atmosphere was so important, as you said the forest isn't a usual place for a character such as Rapunzel but I wanted to make it feel as thought it was.  so it took a while to get right but i'm glad to see I got there in the end! :thanks:
