Woah ^^ color attack!!! like it a lot :)
Love the freehand to the drapery, Meg. The copper kettle feel of the metal is nice, but maybe doesn’t show off the individual filigree details as well as it might (I’ve just about completed the same model, so I know well just how much there is! lol). The bright little butterflies are great though, and the scene tells a great little tale. ^_^
It’s rewarding to see the rating you guys have given this mini. Most everyone has voted with Silver or Gold and that does a lot to bolster my hopes that I am starting to evolve my painting style a bit more.
It was disheartening that it didn’t so well in a stateside competition but I had a feeling it was too “European” in some of the style to really appeal to the American Painting community which tends to lean more towards the cutesy and cartoony style of painting.
I find a lot of the European painters inspirational and hope that I can some day be consider equals with those who I admire.
Color attack indeed!
Is that good or bad? LOL! I can’t quite tell by y’all’s reactions. I use a lot of color in my painting but this is one where I wanted lots of interesting colors to keep the eye moving over it. Is it too much? Or on the brink of too much?
Meg you did an awesome job on your Flower Knight. The metals are very one of a kind, don’t think I’ve ever seen such a nice coppery TMM. Amazingly good. Could you expand on what you mean by color shifting paints? Anyway, feel good about this one, M2. I’ll be putting my version in the gallery soon.
