I Am Sailing


I am sailing, I am sailing,
Home again 'cross the sea.
I am sailing stormy waters,
To be near you, to be free...

Took a half lifetime to do that. Well, the whole afternoon. But now it's finished...
Started to draw the background, went on with the rocks, then the waves. Drew the lighthouse. Started the ship. After that, I added the shells and the moss on the rocks, also the alga. Then the lettering. Changed something at the color. And last but not least, my signature. Wow. Now it's done.
And I feel like I have to go to bed...
Well, first I drew the background for a collage of QaF... Who cares? :D

very soft

If I may suggest a couple of things by way of constructive criticism:

The sea feels too placid, I'd like to see some waves!
The colour palette is perhaps a little limited. Use more colours!

Otherwise keep at it!

Soronya responds:

Thanks for the advices. I'll try that the next time.
The colour was my intention. It should be a calm pic and the pic shouldn't have become too colorful. Otherwises, thanks.
