Aresa's portrait of flowers and bird by EllyTheGee Aresa's portrait of flowers and bird by EllyTheGee
The new years picture for the new year! xD
A little random picture I got inspired by this wonderful image of one of my inspirations :iconwingedhippocampus: *WingedHippocampus I made it for ~SupaSilver

For the beginning of this year I wanted try something. Instead of the usual black lineart I used color gradient as lineart. Not that much but it's something new.
I generally have a lack of drawing birds but ... I shouldn't look that much to the details ... back to the description
Inspired by *WingedHippocampus I start drawing a portrait of ~SupaSilver's character Aresa. Important was the chose of the flowers - I chose an exotic flower named Plumeria - and an exotic bird e.g the Quetzal. All in one it makes a little composition of the portrait includes the flower elements and other details.

Time for a Critique! Time for bad English! =D

First the Pose!

The perspektive of the face is good set.

And the Hand looks good to!

The Bird also good drawed!

Now Colouring!

The Colours are good set.

The Flowers looks so inviting and fluffy =3

I like Ariesas eyes so lovley and cute! ^.^

But iam wondering why you didnt do them like on the inspiration picture. I whould like to see that but what ever.

The Shading and light are so soft and beatiful! (Like always)

I like that you draw with coloured lines its looks cool and makes it a bit preety. ( i also drawed with coloured lines sometimes so i know what iam talking about! :3)

The White Balls makes this more relaxing.

That was my critique! Please dont be so mad becasue of my ranking with the stars! Iam very strictly with the star raiting!

Oooo.. *cough* um... Yes. You have done an amazing job with my female self. ^^;

:iconsupasilver::iconsaysplz: Seriously Ares? You are shy of yourself?!? :iconsilverfacepalmplz:
EllyTheGee Jan 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you ^^ hehe, well it's a bit unusual for you, isn't it?

Aww come on Silver. If you met your male self all of a sudden how would you react? :lol:

:iconsupasilver::iconsaysplz: I would feel awkward. x\

It is and I don't think miss SupaSilver likes the idea. ^^;

Well, I think it's just a kind of a artistic solution from a question like: "What would be if something/someone changed into anything?" :D

That would be crazy because you have
a mind that can have thoughts. Thoughts
of imagination. :)

I know I imagine a lot. Sometimes pretty, sometimes a bit strange :D

Now this is gorgeous one! :wow: beautiful layout. So spacious picture and the colors are lovely :love: It looks really beautiful when a bird and a hedgehog are looking each other. Your drawing style is so smooth and emotional. :)
EllyTheGee Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, a bird and a Mobian. This has something I kinda like :aww:
I'm glad that you like it Ruby, thank you very much :hug: But I thank to *WingedHippocampus for the inspiring picture ^^
