She Was a Vision


______I've finally finished this picture!  I began it over the summer and then it dragged into the school year like an unenthusiastic squid until I rediscovered its true potential and forced it to become a part of my AP Art concentration.  It is of Miss Amber Rose, but I'm aware that it doesn't look exactly like her.  Either way, she is a most gorgemous lady and I tried to make this picture reflect the dreamy side of her charismatic personality.

______Posting this makes me think of how I like that there are those of you who comment frequently on my blog posts, as I am sure you may know I am one of those posters for you!  I'm so very thankful for all of you guys and I just need to thank you for being so sweet and loyal.  If any of you want to be drawn or painted, please tell me, because I would love to stick you into a future piece of artsies!  Plus, you guys already naturally pose for pictures and look great, so it's not like you'd ever have to do anything new!



______Anyway, I hope you like the picture, Amber (and you all too, citizens)!  I hope everyone had a scaryawesome Halloween, too!

______Update: Amber made a post featuring this on her blog.  She is such a darling little sweetheart!

AHHHH THIS IS INCREDIBLE. I can only imagine how long it took! BUT IT'S AMAZING.

It's so dreamy. I feel like it shouldn't be real. I'm dumbfounded by the amazingness!

And I'm extremely confident that every commenter here is going to say that they want a picture of themselves drawn. Myself included.

You're amazing!

This is incredible! It's so crazy to see myself as art through somebody else's eyes.

1. You are an incredible, incredible, incredible artist.

2. If I really looked that good, I would be one happy gal.

3. I just love you! :)

Good work! I love the colors and the textures!
Oh, and I just googled Socotra and a trip to the Indian Ocean is a must. Gorgeous, and I can see why you were reminded of the Chihuly pieces. The twisted branches and vertical vegetation definitely call to mind his glass work.

I really loved how you combined the hair with the ocean waves! Nice illusion! :)

I would love to see how you would paint me, though I'm still going to remain 'invincible' haha.

And thank you very much for your thought on the Ocean girl painting. Sometimes it's just fun to draw a single earring. Glad you like it.

Happy Halloween!

OMG this is amazing! So beautiful, I just love the colors!

Charmalade said...

I think you managed to make a very polished work! The way you draw faces has improved, though really faces are one of the hardest to depict. D: It is very dreamy, I think you captured that effect very nicely.

And though I'd love to make a cameo in one of your future works, how dastardly vain would that be? since I already have a fashion blog. ;D

PS: Ah luff yuu tooooo.

Wowwwwww. That is so amazing, you are so talented and it's no wonder that it took you a while to complete. I seriously wish I had just half of your talent!

Kristina said...

This is AMAZING! I can't draw at all! Wish I could...just wanted to tell you how big a kick I got out of your profile when you said you were into artsy-fartsy! My mom used that expression all the time and I felt you were a kindred spirit immediately just for knowing the phrase!
