"Oh man-that would just suck!" Those are really and truly the exact words that came out of my mouth when I saw this. How wrong is that? Now I sit here laughing because I still feel the same way. She's still on the ground and it's a damn chicken that impales her! At least make it something big that can actually FLY! Pteradactyl maybe?? I am so very strange. (I thought of them because they have the long pointy beaks/heads/noses/whatever it is all made up of).
thank you yes, I usually do a pencil sketch, and then color it in photoshop. I occasionally try other workflows, but this one creates the specific set of mistakes and imperfections that I have declared as style..
it's like, if you really want something, you'r willing to give everything up just so that u could have it. just for one moment and afterwards you just don't care. and maybe she'll fly, but maybe she won't because she still has one foot on the ground. But she's content.
The detail is amazing, as is the feelings I get from it. The bird looks like it's escaping in raw panic, taking the girl with it. What amazes me is the calmness of the girl, one toe still on the ground.
Actually, there was some sort of story.. before drawing this, I thought of her wishing to fly.. and in a dream, a bird went through her, but its wings got stuck on her back.. and various things happened afterwards.. I know, that's not exactly a story. anyway, I've been changing the story in my mind while drawing this, so I'm not sure what was the last version. It probably was quite different than that.
