Hi! I'm here for ProjectComment's comment tag! ^^ My tag was "curly", and since I had already commented on the most recent pieces with curly girls, I chose this!
I really like how all the attention is drawn to the vortex, and everything leads your eyes in that direction, even the movement of flowers/leaves. I think you always manage to make the viewer look at something particular in your pieces, and it's a very great quality!
This picture has a very mystical feeling... I feel like she's suspended in an intermediate dymension in the sky, and the blues and pink hues make it feel very peaceful to me. The red and orange instead are a nice contrast and make the girl pop out from the vortex.

The only criticism I can give is maybe on anatomy, because I feel her head is too big in regards to the body, and that way the neck looks too long. On a more personal side, I feel like the texture of the vortex parts is too rough. Most times I like when material texture come out, but in this one I would have probably preferred if the colouring was more smooth. 

Overall, a very beautiful and evocative artwork! :)

Next is tagline is Ellofayne, and your tag is "reflection"

The strangeness of her anatomy is proposital on this one; I didn't wanted her to look 100% like a normal human being, I guess. And yeeeeeesss the coloring texture looks terrible in some of the stripes. I used to be so careless.

Your comments are always really welcome! <3

Hello, there! I'm here from the Comment Tag over at ProjectComment! My word was "vortex" and I was lucky enough to find it rather easily! :happybounce: 

First of all, I have to say that I love the vivid colours! You weren't afraid to have a mix of different colours, and it has all made a nice composition.
Secondly, I really like what you've actually drawn. I don't know if it makes sense, but I would have never thought of drawing something like this - a girl climbing on stairs, but you've done it really well!
Also, I'm in love with the hair. It's gorgeous (and I'm jealous, duh).
It's a really lovely piece of work, great job and keep doing what you're doing! :la:

I look at this, and questions come to mind, actually.
One of them is, is this a sequel or something to Veronica and the End of The World?
The other is, were you consciously thinking about color theory when you made this, planning out this color scheme a lot, or did it come to you more naturally?

I look at this and think about that orange:bulletorange:poofy hair, and about what species the leaves could be, and about that orange, poofy hair!

This color scheme kept me looking at this over and over. It really did. :nod:

Both this one and Veronica's drawing have a vortex as a background, and use colors of similar tones, if not the same ones... but I truly never thought of them as related. But yes, they both have something apocalyptical in their composition...
I don't remember planning the colors a lot :happybounce: glad you liked them.

Thanks for commenting!

Ah I guess that's part of why you called this Timeless Vortex? They're not related but the vortex is timeless?

Well, I don't like the colors too much, because I wouldn't want them on my wall. =P If they were on my wall, I'd be so distracted by the pretty colors that I wouldn't be able to look at anything else but my wall! :XD:
Heh that makes me think that maybe an evil supervillain that is an artist will be able to try to use art to distract everyone and take over the world. XD :plotting:

And you're welcome.

I actually don't know why is it timeless, that just sounded as a nice title xD

It's actually really distracting. This pic is from a year ago and I have added some more drawings to my wall since them. This is in my bedroom, and sometimes I find myself unable to read or study for a long time because of that. I have thought about taking them down, but I think that could make me sad.

Another lovely piece! :clap: I really like your vibrant and colourful style!

Although many already commented on your choice of colour, I have to add: the contrast is great, especially her orange hair. The dots you used to symbolize curls are amazing!

 

I would like to write something about my impression. To me the girl looks calm and relaxed: simply enjoying the wind in her hair. Therefore I was surprised to read in one of your comments below that you intended her to avoid being pushed into the vortex. So I had a closer look and saw the signs! ;) The leaves are blown up from the ground and her hairpiece is torn towards the centre of the vortex.

In my view there are two major things that can be improved to change the general impression of this situation: Her relaxed expression (especially the face) and the horizontal line. The line adds stability by giving the girl something to stand on, although it is no real part of the picture. I’m quite sure it resulted from an enlargement after finishing the upper part of this work, and was not intended. :)

To further increase the effect of being blown into the vortex, you could let the leaves swirl into the vortex thereby following the lines and becoming smaller with increasing distance (the smaller the diameter of the swirl, the faster the leaves fly).

 

Finally I want to say that - when looking at your pictures - I always have a feeling of catching a glimpse of a new kind of “Alice in Wonderland-Universe”. I want to know more about it! And what is this timeless vortex? Should I be scared? Should we let go and jump into this adventure??? :D

 

PS: The plane is wonderful! I like such things as they are thought provoking and help to keep your watchers attention!

I agree with everything you have said :) yes, this line was a total accident; I've draw something terrible on the bottom part of this drawing, that would end up ruining the whole composition. So, I decided to make this intervention, even if it resulted in this horizontal line.

One year ago, when I made this, I was even worst at planning compositions than I am now. I don't know why I wasn't more careful about the leaves, really.

I just like vortices a lot. I think they are visually beautiful and add some dramaticism to a drawing :) it's nice that my artworks remind you of something magical as alice in wonderland, I'll take it as a compliment.

Composition can be a quite tricky thing, I know that too. ;)

Your vortices are supercool! I agree that they add drama and I think they also add a lot of magic. :wizardhat: :happybounce:

I have seen your picture from ProjectComment. I love your color u use for ladder and her hair. it's consistency for all along the picture. If you add background more detail such as story or flashback or abstract of something i will be perfect abstract art. Put more detail in the leafs and her hair maybe can help this picture look gorgeous. Good job for watercolor. :happybounce:

First off, even though everyone else has already said it, I really like those colors. Complementaries are totally my jam.

My first thought was that the pose is looking a bit on the stiff side. I'm not sure if it was your intention, but it distracted me. I'd say, the left (right to us) leg should be straighter. Not only would make it look a bit more natural, as her weight would be resting on that leg, it would also fit in nicely with the right arm, and make the post look more balanced. Doing this would also rotate the body slightly, making it look either straighter, or more falling down, and I feel like that would give the figure more weight.

Anyway, I love that composition, especially the airplane in the air. At first I thought it was a bird of some sort, but then I took a closer look and I had this "Oh!" moment. All the subtle textures are all very interesting to look at and pick out, but don't clash and become distracting. Good job!

Your observation about her leg and how her anatomy could be improved was really interesting. I wanted her body language to be more expressive in this one - in my head, she's holding tightly to the stair as the wind pushes her body into the vortex -, but failed to do so. I may take your advices if I ever draw something like this again :)

I have been questioned about this airplane once, but I really don't know what it means. Like, really.

Overall thank you for commenting! Hug

I love the depth of the colors in this. It's only really two colors, but there are enough shades that it still captures a lot of motion. I would have liked if the leaves/flowers started higher up. I love the soft peachy flower/leaf floor though. Great piece!
