Artist Comment

Since I'm not likely to make a wallpaper for August (exams/vacation without computer), I decided to dig out one of my old old WIPs and finish it, that counts, right? >__< (my planned Aug wallpaper isn't gonna get finished any time soon DX)

I know nothing of the character or series, but when I saw this scan, I really love her pose, expression, and to some extent, the art style.

So I painted her in ArtRage (marker tool ftw!) a long long time ago (like over a year I think XD), and it sat there because I have no idea what to do with the background... I think I tried doing a flower field with the same type of flower she's holding, and failed epically XD It also took me a gazillion years to decide how to best orient her. I feel kinda sad cutting off the top of her head, but it looks even more empty if she's smaller...

My initial idea was have her as if she's in a painting (the name refers to the painting "Girl with a Pearl Earring" ), so I tried slapping on some canvassy texture, but that didn't look good. Then I had a look through the series' scan gallery to get inspiration for bg ideas, and a lot of the scans had a grudgey feel, so I tried doing some grudge stuff for the background, but didn't look too good either, because it clashes with the sketchy style I painted her in.

After more experiments, I arrived at this. I used pieces from this scan for the bg colours (and some texture, though you can hardly tell XD) , and mainly this scan for the "paint / pastel on canvas"-like texture.

I think I ended up liking how it came out, I dunno if the bg is too blank. I've put up the PNG of the girl (along with other resolutions) at EDD if anyone wants to take a stab at doing a scenic bg for it or something >__<

    Your strokes are so neat! Whenever I try to draw over something, the lines come out all ugly and crooked.

    I love the simplicity and the colors are perfect. It's not too busy and doesn't distract the viewer from the main point - her expression.
    Great job!

    I love wallpapers that have these kind of textures it gives it a sort of wallpaper scroll feeling and then the soft toned colors really add to a kind of old textbook feeling!

    cute, it's simple but i think that it was really hard to do it because of the sadness, shock that can be read on the girls face ( this is what i think), i love it, bravo:-bd
