Winter's Rose by monochromera Winter's Rose by monochromera
had the idea for a while... but I couldn't get it down right :/ every time I tried to draw it, the head came out to big, or the rose petals looked more like severed flesh, etc. I didn't like it. and after weeks of redrawing it over and over.... I still don't like it. :shrug: well I just have to keep practicing until I get where I want to be. for the time being, I think I should get back in the groove of making colored pencil art. my skills are getting rusty and I need to learn to make that gosh darn anatomy look right... as well as the fur. it's okay, yea, but it could be better. especially considering it looks nothing like what I wanted it to :rage:

oh well. off to the drawing board for me. I really need to get some good art out there and though I have plenty of ideas, I just don't have the talents to draw it out. practice. work. practice. work.

mediums used:
colored pencil
chalk
pen

Overdose and artwork (c) darkfoxdemonx

And I don't know why you don't like, because from my point of view it's really awesome. But it's also admirable that you want to improve, so good luck! ^^
About the picture itself, I love the trees - very life like. And I like personally how you've drawn fur here.

yay! I was hoping to have the effect of it looking like it was a part of his flesh, transitioning into petals, so I was close :3

ooh, ooh! i actually have an intelligent comment for this one!
i think the main reason you were having problems with the rose petals is because they usually aren't used so dynamically. rose petals are usually used for a more sot tone, floating gently downward a few at at time. here, the're spiraling up and out, breaking apart as they do. i think the only reason you had trouble getting them to look right is because of their breaking apart; i don't usually see fragmented petals.(like i said on that one you had at school awhile back, pottery is the first thing that comes to mind when i see shards like this.)
having the full roses in the midst of the petals really helps clarify it though.

...so yeah, that was prolly useless to you. long, useless comments are my specialty. :dummy:

anyway, DEM TREES. ASDFASDFASDF. SO DANG REALISTIC. i'm pretty bad with plant species, but those are birch, right?

This is so cool! I love the colors (great choices~!) and the design of your character.
I looks (im my opinion) like he's fading away into rose petals. awesomely awesome~!

It does. Like he's gettin blown away to rose petals. it shows.
I also love the texture of the fur and how well the colors blend (the red and gray) on the fur.
