No, I'm good. by evelmiina No, I'm good. by evelmiina
A Calendar of Tales project. [link]
graphite, pencils, gold ink and photoshop, 70 cm x 40 cm.

I really liked the October tale, at the moment I don't exactly know why. Obviously I love stories about humans meeting mythical beings, in this case, a Djinn, but it is a nice story about complexity of encounters and time. That is how I understood it.

Humans overvalue eternity in life and love, so they forget the moment.

oh goodness, this is great!
it's maybe a little weird but i like the stark white space so much... like how it meshes effortlessly with the very textured rest of the picture.

I saw it on the contest's page and I really hope it gets chosen. I don't only find it the best for the category, but across all entries I've seen there. Amazing work!

Thanks! I didn't even browse through all of them, there seemed to be a million of them. I hope they reveal which illustrations they picked up soon :)

I really had this "love at first sight" when you posted the wip pic! besides the pretty patterns, the composition got me. I'm a sucker for awesome compositions.
this is something I'd really love to be printed in a calendar! I haven't read october's tale yet but I do love the tweet prompt neil picked. : D
I sort of liked the gold(?) parts popping out in one of your wip pics , but it's not as noticeable here. :c

I'm sort of itching to join too, but I still haven't picked which month I want to draw D:

Mm, I guess the gold paint looks sharper against graphite and after scanning and coloring, it turns sort of flat and greenish? It'd be ideal if I could paint matte surfaces and draw on top of them with graphite, since I really like graphite and pencil textures. Some printing technique would serve too, but the tools are expensive and difficult to manage at home. I like the original and was thinking of submitting it just as it is, but, I couldn't help my urge to color it after all ^^;

October stood out for me, it was like tailored for my imagination...but I liked how they were all short but inspiring little texts.

Oh that's nice to hear! I'm pretty fond of this myself, it's really nice to make drawings on large canvas. It feels more like real deal, compared to A4 - A3 drawing papers.

LOVE this!! The textures and colors are really great. Really stunning.

Since you're looking for critique, I think from this angle the crease of the woman's other arm ought to be visible. Also It would look better if the man's hair was more twisted and flowing, since everything else is quite wavy.
