The Bridge


Portfolio piece of one of my OCs, Gem. The sad heartbroken cat lady down the road.
I must say that i enjoyed doing this so much because I had to experience new things with light and casts!
I will do more arts of Gem soon and focus on storytelling and ambience.
Slowing introducing a personal story of mine to you guys. It is a little taunting and I feel a little unsure and vulnerable showing it to you guys because this story means so much to my spirirt haha
I really hope you like it. ❤❤

This is beautiful! The way the light shines gives this piece a special vibe and I really like the color scheme. And the kitties are so cute <3

spectacular light ... expressive composition

Congratulations on having this front paged Dahlia-K. It's beautiful as always.

Dahlia-K responds:

Thankyou so much! Yes I was very happy to see that!! ❤

Is that... love? The speech/thought bubble seems to clash with the melancholy motive, if the black's meant to mean a lack of, maybe something like a shattered bubble, or a cross, or the heart in two pieces would get that across better? Everything else about it is beautiful. The sun. The girl. That cats. A sad but serene scene, somber yet spirited, and theme maybe referring to the bridge over troubled water? Really nice piece.


Dahlia-K responds:

Thankyou so much!
And the heart speech bubble is like my signature watermark so I cant really do without it.
Only the prints I sell are without watermarks

This is the kind of stuff is what I want to do when I’m older and more talented
And skilled allthough it seems I will never get there. All the competitions I have entered I have lost and I don’t really see my work improving but anyway It is honestly really pretty and I love the use of lighting and warm colors. I can see the picture moving even though it is still and I know what it sounds like how the weather is the time of day. It is really good. (To me it’s really humid and at the almost nighttime time of day and the cicadas are buzzing with some wind in the back.) Keep it up I would love to see more of your stuff.

Dahlia-K responds:

Aww thankyou so much! I am really flattered.♡
And dont ever think that. You just got to keep swimming!
Practice and love what you do and youll get there sooner than you think
