Dawn of the Wind by AniaMohrbacher Dawn of the Wind by AniaMohrbacher
Ok, so fist of all I have to say that I'm dissappointed with this one. Its one of these images that start off well and then go progressively downhill ;_; I also know that it's my frustration speaking here, so perhaps you'll look at it from different perspective than I do and actually enjoy it.

It was supposed to be a sequel to [link]

*edit* trying to upload it as a print :D

I think that is drawing is really fantastic and the way the composition holds your interest. I know it is to not feel content with a piece of artwork...if you don't like the first one then redo it until you get it the way you want it to be.

I love Stephanie Pui-Law's watercolors a lot as well and Japanese mythology is a major source of Inspiration for me right now. =)

This reminds me very much of Stephanie Law's work, though not quite. I like how the lamps are sort of the focal pieces of the painting.

I was meaning to reply earlier, but then I tried to find a wind picture for you *which I failed to find* so this message just remained in my inbox...

That aside, thank you a lot for featuring my artwork! It makes me happy to see that you like it so much :) I've been meaning to create another image for that series, but I didn't get around to it just yet. Hopefully in the near future!

Ah, the pic i was lookning for was somoene else's not mine :D!

As far as something new to show is concerned, I'd rather let you decide :) People have different tastes in art it seems, and usually what artist likes in their work is not the same thing as public likes!

I don't think there's anything about this image that should cause you disappointment! The composition is beautiful and unique, and the swinging lanterns are gorgeous.

I was dissappointed in it, because the style of it was much different than in the first image of the series. I also like composition better in that first one, however in this image the colours are more vibrant and it looks smoother. I guess it all depends on the point of view really (and artists are hard to please when their own work is concerned, aren't they :D? )

Thank you ^_^. I think workign with colored pencils isn't much different than working with a regular pencil. (but then perhaps it's because I've been doing it for so long) Also I bet that if you enjoy working with them, you'll get better as well!

Did I ever comment on this? I can't remember if I did or not. It's gorgeous, as is everything you put out. The colors are so soothing and they blend so well together. The beautiful strokes - the way the figure seems to just blend into the air and the sense of light in this is wonderful. Very beautiful work!

The picture is colorful, and the composition gives the impression of the wind very good. I could almost feel the wind on my chicks.

Why do you not like it, sweetie? Can you pinpoint it?

I'm glad you like the lamps :D, actually that's the part of the picture that I enjoy as well.

The reason I was dissappointed with it, was that the style seemed to be signifficantly different from the image that it was supposed to be a sequel off. Also I think that the background could use a bit more work, although I'm not sure if I could fix it at this point.
