It's coming along...Nicely?

For those of you who asked-- oh, wait, no one did! I don't care! I'm going to talk about it and YOU CAN'T STOP ME because it's my blog! Bwahahaha!-- the cartoonish version of the dancers is coming along.



I have to love this piece, because it has been part of the process of a lifechanging discovery, about which more later. But for now, look! I'm doing stuff!

Thank you, dear! I'm at the "oh please don't mess it up" stage, which makes me very glad it's digital...

Looks great! I love when you post the sketch and then show us how it's coming along :) I love seeing the process!

Aw, ya'll are sweet!

I think-- and this doesn't apply to just my own work-- that the work in progress is often more interesting than the finished piece, though the finished piece may well be objectively *better*. There's immediate energy in the unfinished. Gesture drawings can be really compelling, in particular.

gorgeous. i like the spiral details in bitty places, and the floral headpieces. i also had this sense of achievement from this piece, it's like stages of growth...

Carapace said...

Wow, Mermaiden, that's fantastic. I am totally stealing that, and pretending I meant it all along. Hurrah!

Details in a simple piece are something I love. It's one of the great bits about Art Nouveau, simple shapes and colors, lots of teeny tiny details scattered about. But not something I am especially skilled at-- I always start going overboard. Hopefully this piece stays under control!

Those girls are beautiful! They're in their own worlds, but working together to create a beautiful scene.
