Shower of Twilight by KarrinGray Shower of Twilight by KarrinGray
Full view please!
I'm growing lazy with titles. :sleep:

Here it is, in all it's annoying glory - another piece that didn't turn out how I intended it (initially this was going to be a sunrise --; )! I can't begin to describe how this tortured me! :stab: The initial background wash was a horrible shade of brown and really dampened my drive to complete it. There were other problems, of course, and a few things that still bother me (the straggling firefly for one, I think I might erase), but overall I am done and happy to be so!

This was made for ~Poetic-Dragon. Sorry it took so long! :faint:

-My scanner seems to have washed this out some. Argh.

I love the delicate profile! I especially like the tree in the background. The umbrella looks awessome!

Wow! I love how you do the washes in your pieces, they are just so soft and textured at the same time. Colours are awesome.

Danke! I'm not sure how I managed it in this piece. It was a real uphill battle.

I totally lack the right words to talk about art but I do love this picture even if it tortured you. It looks like something out of a dream.

You know better than any how it tortured me. :stab: :XD: The anger is dissipating though. Someday I might even like it. ;p

Oh my, this is just simply beautiful! :love:
Love how the little things making this picture up just works so well together, the marbled texture of the watercolor, the adorable details on the figure, and of course the colors! :heart:
I cannot stop thinking that the picture's supposed to be longer though, or has a few companion pieces of the same nature but with different characters or something like that, tee hee :D
Keep the lovely works coming! ^^

:blush: Aw, thanks! I'm so glad you like it. I struggled to get everything to fit.

Aiee, a series of them? :XD: I suppose I could picture something of the sort. Curses! ;p Hopefully if I do make others they will be kinder to me than this was!

Thanks. The colors ended up okay, but the whole process was so aggravating I think I've taken to holding a bit of a grudge against this piece. Have to punish it for punishing me, lol. :XD:
