turns me to gold in the sunlight by Flrmprtrix turns me to gold in the sunlight by Flrmprtrix
Midas is King.


Florence and the Machine-inspired again. that particular lyric from Rabbit Heart hooked me.

Note: definitely not his daughter here. also, i know he's supposed to be Phrygian, but I wasn't feeling the Phrygian cap so I leaned a bit more toward Scythian crowns that I've seen. and i originally wasn't going to, but ended up sneaking in a reference to lionheartedness.

another FatM-inspired work here: [link]


Ipad, fingerpainting, sketchclub. the biggest handicap, I'm coming to learn, is not being able to see the exact point on the screen because a fingertip obscures way more than a pencil/brush/stylus.

I also had a really terrible time with the feet, trying to be anatomically correct without references--because there are some things I really don't want to google for.

.....that comment was meant for something entirely different, because I thought I had this open to a different page but it was actually two deviantart pages open next to each other and just kill me now XD
HOWEVER, this is also lovely, which I didn't say before, so yes, you can tease me next time we hang out XD *hugs*

This is just beyond gorgeous. And it's effective for the purpose. Even before I looked at the title I instantly thought of Rabbit Heart! Love it!

Thanks for the kind comment, I'm glad it made you think of rabbit heart! I really just had to illustrate that particular lyric.

On some of the apps, you can use an offset to see where the stylus is actually making its mark.

This is gorgeous! I especially love the small pieces of jewelry on his ankles and around his neck, the little subtle bits on his arms and such. This looks almost like a watercolor, and you did a great job on the feet, especially considering you didn't use references.

Thanks! I can sort of see the watercolor effect now that you mention it, at least is the small version--probably just due to me playing fast and loose on background landscape details.

Holy crap lady, this is gorgeous! I love how the gold stands out against the grey, and the details of gold on his arms, and her hairstyle and expression, and his everything and this everything. Seriously, this is gorgeous.

Thanks so much for the detailed comment, and for noticing his arms! Her hair was probably the most fun to draw/paint. You've got a great gallery too!
