Feeling Bright Tonight

I attempted to draw something that was not yaoi for once. No wonder I feel a little empty inside. I drew this picture on a 2.5' x 1.3' mat board with watercolor, colored pencils, permanent marker, white-out, and orange/blue highlighter in my friend Stephanie's dorm room. I gave her a lot of mat board, and I had to get rid of it somehow.

This was the first time using watercolor on mat board. My friend Rori was like, "Instead of painting it one small stroke at a time, just get a big batch of it, and put it on there." I was like, "You are right!" so I mixed a whole bunch of watercolors together into a big bowl of water and splashed it all over the matboard. She screamed, "NOT LIKE THAT!" and I was like, "Shut up woman; I know what I'm doing!" -And SURE ENOUGH. I didn't. Haha. Watercolor noob!

Edited in Photoshop! Why is part of her hair purple?! GAHHHH! Now to do some unethical Medical Terminology! Everyone get your Mothers Day contest entries in! *shakes fist*

Tuntun422She's stunning.
My favorite part os this picture is the shimmering eye shadow across her face. 
That and her flower hair pin,( which in the very center of it looks like a meowing cat but I could be mistaken).

Well fabulous work as ever talk to me when ever you have a free moment.

luckylace222I will "lend back" the CO2 and aerobic respiration elements , but I keep the 36 ATP for interest.

luckylace222Awww, DARN, you found Koji! Now, I have to redraw him somewhere where others cannot find him. ;__;

Hah! I do not sell my art work because I AM TOO COOL TO MAKE MONEY. What you say to that?! HUH? lol

Ah! You "could" learn? You subconsciously learn something from looking at someone's art! I am already forcing my knowledge onto you with every piece you look at! I heard better shading/background techniques while looking at your art!

Thanks for the comment!

ZeroMidnightLOL I love reading your descriptions more than any other online artist, ha ha.

Absolutely gorgeous glowing effects. DEM LIPS. Soooo luscious and beautiful~ *immediate fave*


......I haven't made any sort of contest entry. OTL

luckylace222 on May 22, 2012, 6:34:15 AM

luckylace222I love reading that you read my descriptions! BURN

Thank-you- I was afraid her lips were a little too luscious. They seemed a little big to me. ;__;

No worries! There is always next contest. And next contest. And next contest. And all the other contests like those until I die. HOORAY! Having art-block lately or just not interested? i can spice my contests up a bit! P; I can have the losers jump off into a flaming pit of lava and the winners get a free night at AppleBees!

ZeroMidnightxD Ha ha ha, no no your contest ideas are fantastic. :)
I don't know, I just seemed to have lost desires, I can't seem to sit down and try to draw something worthy anymore. :/

luckylace222Do you happen to have some other personal obligation/obstacle occupying your mind when you attempt to draw, or is it just general frustration in your art?

ZeroMidnight on May 28, 2012, 11:40:51 AM

ZeroMidnightI don't really know..? It's been hard to draw for a while, but noticeably harder this year.

unknownXWonderful colors. So nice and warm and the clip in her hair is my favorite. It almost seems as if her hair is glowing.

luckylace222 on May 26, 2012, 2:49:17 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222It did in fact make it so her hair could glow with that overdose of white-out!

I do not know why, but I thought your avatar was the same person in my picture for a moment there?!

Thank-you so much! It is great to hear from you again!

WH2007One of your best pictures! I love the brown-orange palette You've used. It gives the picture this melancholic, autumn feeling.

luckylace222 on May 22, 2012, 6:30:57 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Thank-you so much! I actually drew this on brownish/tannish mat-board, so that explains the already infused brown pallet! However, I have this strange subconscious though that the mat-board was actually blue...why do I keep thinking that?

Yes, thanks you so much!
