I Choose Life by Gwendolyn12 I Choose Life by Gwendolyn12
"When love was bound together,
Believed it by the letter,
It closed my eyes for ever,
Cos everything has changed and now

I ain't gonna look the other way,
After all the clouds go by,
It's just another empty sky,
I ain't gonna wait to see the rain,
Nothing's gonna make it right,
Look at me cos i choose life..."
Keisha White - I Choose Life


Yay, it is finally finished!:dummy:(Actually it was already but I could only post now due to my forced hiatus:stare:) I really like how it turned out, though it was really hard and time-consuming to work with every detail on it and make it look like I wanted to:giggle:

For this painting, I wanted to follow your instructions and do something colorful without being rainbow:> I tried my hand at darker colors and used some watercolors and such to see the effect:D ...And I don't know what else to say about it, but I'm pretty satisfied with it.:giggle: I hope you'll like, too.:meow:

:bulletred: Lineart sweetness in the air... belongs to *sureya :heart:
:bulletgreen: Time: Around 17 hours.
:bulletblue: Tools: Faber-Castell markers/watercolors/colorpencils/water-colorpencils, Mitsubishi colorpencils, Pentel white gel pen, Gato Preto acrylics, Copic markers on Canson 140 g/m :meow:
:bulletpurple: Commissions are open!:love: please click here for more info! :heart:


(Edit 08/17/11) HOLY... A DD?! LIKE SERIOUSLY?! :heart::heart::heart:
Thank you so much everyone who suggested this:tighthug: and `VAngelLJ for featuring! I am so happy, this is my first DD!:love:

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-08-17
Suggested by quite a few people, I Choose Life by `Gwendolyn12 is an absolutely superb coloured rendition of *sureya's line art, "sweetness in the air...". The colouring techniques used are fantastic and give great results; you can easily tell plenty of time was spent here. Beautiful work on both parts; be sure to visit the galleries of both the lineartist and the colourist. ( Featured by VAngelLJ )

I love this! It's so bright and colorful and everything is very detailed, like the hair which goes from green to violet or the wonderful background with its many different colors! The shadings are also very well made and give the whole an even more amazing appearance! So, that's really fantastic work and you absolutely deserved the DD! :heart:

thank you so much!:love: Im so happy you like it that much, since a lot of those color mixes and such were experiments I tried doing (back when I painted it, a few months ago). I still think this is my best coloring work yet, so its an honor that it was the one which got a DD:):heart:
