Water lily by Gawarin Water lily by Gawarin
One rainy day, a beautiful girl with broken heart was running trough the woods... Her soul was full of pain, eyes were full of tears... So she didn't saw the pond she was running to. Water lilies were trying to help her, but vines were inept. They wrap around her legs and hands, so she could not swim. She drowned.
Water lilies were so sad when they realised, that they killed the girl. Green vines took her body, wrap around her, grow through, and give her a eternal life under water. Vines and roots are too short, so she cant leave the water. But she can raise her head above, and watch the beauty of the world. And white water lilies are blooming beautifly to cheer her.

Ah this story I just created for this picture is so sad! But it fits to my mood, and to melancholic weather outside, too.

My entry for :icongrimgloomtale: 's contest  - So much water. I really love the theme and I tried to do my best :) I only I know I really hate my scanner, because it truly destroyed whole magic of this picture :/ yes, I'm a little upset.

Thank you so so much for every comment, fave, or just looking - all of these will make me really happy :) I hope you will like this artwork... And have a nice day!

This is beautiful painting. Very expressional. I can feel the pain and the sadness. Somehow your story reminds me the original story of "little mermaid". In the end she got immortal soul. I think there is also hope in your artwork.

Stunning colour! I love the way you've used themed colour to divide the girl from her surroundings, but I also love the way you've used the girl's theme colour in the water and the fish. It truly makes it seem like she belongs in the water and is slowly becoming one with it. You have an excellent eye for colour - you use it with admirable restraint and judgement, applying it in such a way that benefits the holistic work without being jarring or boring.

I also love your use of pattern. As with the colour, you have spread it evenly through the work and used motifs throughout that unify and enhance the atmosphere. They are very elegant, detailed patterns, but they are never too harsh or flat - you are very skilled at adding true depth and form to your patterns, so they almost become objects of characters in their own right. I also love the way you have used a variety of patterns - long, waved ones, smaller, tighter curls, and circular and linear ones. It is very successful at creating a beautiful, whimsical atmosphere.

I love the way you have created depth in the image, through the use of different degrees of shading - some flatter, and other areas in higher relief. You have further enhanced this effect by creating beautiful, translucent layers of colour and line. The dress is also spectacular - beautiful use of detail and form, and I love the way the floaty bottom layers of the dress look like they are made of pearl or the shell of some sort of mollusc. :D Beautiful work!

Ty tvé postavy jsou pořád trochu prkenné, ale já tě nemám co poučovat, sama s tím mám někdy problém. Strašně se mi líbí, jak pracuješ s barvama a s detaily, je to neuvěřitelně citlivé. I když je tam toho všeho hodně pohromadě, ty přesně víš, kdy už přestat, aby ses nepřehoupnul do kýče. :) Já sama nejsem moc velkou milovnicí fantasy kreseb, ale u tebe to je to fajn podívání. :) Vlastně když se tak podívám na celou tvoji tvorbu, jde tam vidět strašně velký vývoj v krátkém čase. Jak to prosím tě děláš? :D To bych potřebovala umět taky! To, jak teď tvoříš, je za mě rozhodně správný směr! :)

Moc děkuju za komentář! Velmi si ho vážím, protože tvoje obrázky moc obdivuju už dlouhou dobu :) Jinak ta prkenost je u mě zatím dost problém, třeba tady jsem se hodně snažil, aby to prkenné nebylo... Nu nevadí. Většinou na přípravných skicách vypadají pózy uvolněně a pak v originále jsou takové umělé.
Jak to dělám? kreslím každý den, kreslím často, kreslím pořád! :D Dělám vše pro to, abych se neustále zlepšoval, takže mám radost že si myslíš, že se mi to daří :) Děkuju :hug:
