I used Derwent watercolor pencils dry Albrecht Durer faber castell watercolor pencils dry Edding 140S Marker 0.3mm black for all the tiny lines of the feather Edding 780 0.8 mm white for the highlights
This is gorgeous! I love the attention that you have paid to the fine details--the individual strands of the peacock feather, the reflections of light and colour on the girl's skin, and even the blood vessels and shadows in the white of her eye. The composition is also really interesting. I love the different textures placed together--the glossy-ness of her lips and eye with the softness of the peacock feather and her hair, the smoothness of her skin. The colour palette is wonderful. It is interesting how the colours of the feather are echoed in the colour of her eye, the background, and her hair. I cannot find a single aspect that seems to need improvement. Overall, a masterpiece!
Karin, in all honesty i have no idea about criteria regarding picking an artwork for a DD, i know ofc what kind of art i like and i would suggest and i guess we all know eventually what kind of art we like and we would suggest, but this doesnt mean all the suggestions we make get through, right? i guess the admins picking the DD subjects know what they are looking for.
I am glad you like it my dear, this one was so much fun to make i totally loved the process, and i am glad you like it
I like this picture a lot. The only thing I don't like are the wisps of hair extending from the actual feather. The black outlines make them look choppy and unnatural in comparison to the woman herself.
