I currently felt like working with my drawings more than with anime scans, though I have a long list of scans to work with. D:

Anyway, I decided to go simple again with the background and a little abstract with the foreground. Tried working with patterns on the dress and the snakes too, but the result didn't look good. So the only option is on the background, and it actually looked better than I thought. I wasn't that sure at first in choosing the colours, but then I noticed the autumn scheme fits. Though sorta failed with the proportion, I think. :\

The concept is likely about death, or specifically - poisoned to death. I thought being poisoned and died is a tragic situation rather than beautiful. But with all the flowers and pretty hair and how she looks into her own death are something peaceful to me. Snakes because I wanted to add the source of poison and also in opposition to the beauty essence in the girl.

Some samples throughout the process.

Pattern from HybridGenesis, textures from DA! and Stockxchng.

Have a wonderful New Year!

    I hope you'll make a lot more walls with your own drawings, if they turn out as good as this. :) I like your latest walls a lot because I really love walls that have elements of beauty contrasted with darker elements.
