Confusion Placed Boldly


I don't know how many people are actually going to see this.
But the last item I made, I didn't like- and someone left a very puzzling but thoughtful comment.

This is for the New Year, it's (to Me) All of my art styles closed into one painting. And I also made it into a background. http://i577.photobucket.c om/albums/ss214/TamaraSho emake/Background.jpg
I don't really think a lot of you will be interested in it. But I hop it makes you think.

Please leave comments telling me what you see, how it makes you feel, and yes- I want critiques as well. (:

Obviously the colors are great, but I really like your style as well. It seems like it would lend itself very well to a book like Alice in Wonderland. I like it a lot.

Gee golly-kins sir. Whattah compliment. <3


This is great I bet it took long time to get this thing done from the look of the work on the hair.

Well done.

My only complaint is that the lips seem a little larger than they should be.
It's probably just me though, haha.
I never have been to great at examining art ^_^;


I have a new background now.

It fits perfectly to some stories I'm writing know because she looks so confused with all these freaky curls around her like the snakes out of the gorgo's head.

Thank you very, very much!


As someone who does artwork in every media, I understand how tricky watercolor can be. Yet you've mastered the media and put forth a very compeling peice. She looks sad or confused yet the soft colors give it an ethreal feel. Its soothing in a complicated way, beautiful.

dreamzmighty responds:

Boy howdy! No one will ever know what it took to do that hair. D: Ha ha. Thank you!
