Do you remember? Remember the color... the wind... maple leaves in summertime? Silence... solitude... all gone...
My memory... the red maple will keep it forever.

Watercolor and ink. 12-14 hours. Highly inspired by Alphonse Mucha.
She reminds me of someone, but I did not use any references. Maybe I'm just dreaming...

Edit: Thank you so much for frontpage, Newgrounds!

Thisis a masterpiece of art. So much detail and amazing use of colors, it's borderlin hypnotizing in it's beauty!

Luciaea responds:

Wow. Thanks for the kind words.

You have an amazing attention to detail, which is great! I love the trees in the background and the fact that the trunks vary slightly in light/dark contrast gives it a very good sense of volume! :)
Alphonse Mucha all the way too, especially in the little folded bit of hair on the ground.
Truly fantastic!

Luciaea responds:

Thanks for the review! I'm glad you looked into the background details... all the stuff around her took longer than her to do. Good that it gets the right feel across :)

This is the kind of artwork you don't expect to see on the internet or in common circulation within the media now adays. Most unfortunate the artistic nude appearing in anything draws disgust, and many will often mock such a thing displaying tasteless disgusting behavior. But not you! You keep old traditions in art alive and beautiful without a flaw being present!

Luciaea responds:

Such a kind review... Thanks!

Truly amazing, watercolor isn't much used on these days, and it's nice to see something less plastic and more "organic" as for a change. Loved the colors and the way they blend with eachother. 5/5

Luciaea responds:

Thank you!
Watercolor is used... in very tight and 'secret' circles. You just have to search to find it. I know some really good contemporary watercolorists... dazzling =)

Very good art, my good sir. I love that you show the female body in a realistic fashion, instead of using large breasted whores who have all kinds of things shoved into themselves. This is truly beautiful.
