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/m² :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 )
