Wow! I thought at first glance that there might be too many different elements and things going on, but they all appear to fit together seamlessly!
The roses (at least I presume they are) look just fantastic... They're ridiculously beautiful. That paper has cool texture and that wave... Even though it looks completely different from the other elements, it goeds really well with them! I really like how it kind of cradles the rest of the picture, and has such a geometrical shape in comparison to the woman's hair, for example. It really gives the composition an interesting aspect it'd lack if the wave wasn't there. And, of course, there's the woman I love her serene face and how graceful her hand is.
I'd like to point out a couple of etails, though, that I personally think could be improved. That paper scroll would look more appealing to me if it had more folds like the one just next to that text, though I'm not sur if it would've suited your vision The woman's neck looks just a little bit odd to me, too, but it could just be my lack of knowledge when it comes to anatomy Here eyes are also of different sizes, which disturbs me a little. But she has such a nice face that it makes up for it
Now you must tell me how exactly you made those color splashes! They look awesome! They make this otherwise beautiful sculpture-looking drawing fresh and different. It's almost as if I could smell the flowers with my eyes, thanks to the color... Sorry for the strange expression.
Wow thanks heaps for the response, I really appreciate it! The woman's from Sandro Botticelli's painting 'The Birth of Venus'. Considering it's a renaissance painting, the female body parts usually look out of proportion.
I used water color paints to make those splashes, the more water used, the easier it is to splash the colors around. You should try practicing on a black page just to get the hang of it Thanks again for the comment!
This is gorgeous mix of different mediums. I love the combination of the soft lines of pencil and the colorful, energetic splashes of watercolors, it's such a harmonous match! This is truly beautiful, there's no other word to describe this so perfectly
