Silenced by CalamityChemist Silenced by CalamityChemist
Edit: Color corrected so it looks more like the original painting. c:

Watercolor and Micron pen! Traditional? What is this nonsense...

I wanted to do a picture of Carmori for one of my final projects in art class. I...won't even start complaining about the coloring, because you'd never hear the end of it, haha. I haven't worked with watercolors in years, and I never really was any good with them. But it was nice to try out a different medium!

Threw this together tonight--don't tell my teachers! I had a week to work on it but was too busy, so I didn't touch it until the day before it was due (like usual, haha...)

...poor fellow. :c

Is this when he drowned?

This is actually occurring a few years after he drowned--he's already dead in this picture. He's just going back to the river to reminisce.

fascinating...do the ghosts of THAT world do that often?

BTW, I have this idea where THIS is the World of the Living, and THAT is the domain of the dead...it's a recent idea...

BTW, what do you think of THIS idea (which I ALSO conjured based off a dream)

Jen, might I begin by saying that you have outdone yourself on this piece. When I first saw it I thought it was digital. Yes, that's how good it looks. What coloring problems!? You haven't touched watercolors in years and you produce this!? That just shows how much of an artist you are. A true artist, not limited in medium or vision. You even have lighter tones to suggest light streaming through! It gives it almost an underwater effect! BRB CRYING. No amount of spaz does this piece justice. This is gorgeous, period.

Jiosen, seriously man, you're too kind. :heart: Thank you so much for that wonderful compliment. I feel totally out of my element with anything besides Photoshop or a pencil, so I feel like exploring new mediums would be good for me, even if it's uncomfortable. I'm so glad you think it turned out nicely, aaaaaaugh!

And thank you! I'm glad you think it looks alright. I'm afraid it's too late to save him, though--in this picture, he's already been dead for eleven years!

i think child psychology is at work here. Teachers tell us to not procrastinate but we challenge them by doing so xD

My GOSH is this amazing!! The coloring if just phenomenal, the texture is great, and the subtle yet etheral-ish lighting is very beautiful. :love:

Again, wonderful work here. :heart:
