Chang'e by Dreoilin Chang'e by Dreoilin
Wow it's been awhile since I've put anything up!

:icongold-seven: inspired me to start practicing my traditional skills (beyond just inking) so here is my first attempt at painting one of my drawings with actual watercolors instead of digital colors. Obviously I have lot's more practicing to do lol.

This is Chang'e, chinese goddess of the moon.

I absolutely love the design and flow of the clothing and its patterns. The striking and traditional composition, with its definite shapes and liquid shading, holds my eye. The cloud on the right keeps bringing my eye back to the figure after the brightness of the moon draws it upward.

As others have said before me, this is beautiful. I just bought a watercolor set today myself, and I can only hope that my first attempt will be as good as yours.

Did you use watercolors in a tube, or did you use a dry palette?

Simply beautiful and soooo serene, Dreoilin! I love the way in which the ribbons of her garment suggest the shape of the moon itself, adding to her mystique as the goddess of the moon. Very sublime image!

You are a lot better than me with paints. I can color with color pencils and chalk pastels just fine, however, I have struggled will liquid mediums. Its hard enough for me to work with Acrylic paint, cant even imaging working water colors. Nice work.
