Peacock and Statue by OneSmartChicken Peacock and Statue by OneSmartChicken
Look! I made something!

For a dolling contest that required you to pick four random favorites of yours or someone else's and make a picture inspired by them. I got a nose tut, a "perspect" pose reference stock set, a moss-and-stone texture, and a picture inspired by and titled Peacock. I'm too lazy to go get the links and shit.

I'm actually terribly pleased with this. It came up just how I wanted it, and I wound up making a character out of that faerie.

Since I got the texture as inspiration, I also went ahead and used it ever so slightly on the statue.

The rest is just free-hand. It was nice to work at the end-size again for once. I think I'll try that for the next batch of items I do for FF, since I keep losing detail a lot.

As per my usual as of late, it's all baseless and such.

[edit]

Peacock and Statue by ~OneSmartChicken is a fantastically painted scene on the miniature scale reserved for digital dolls. Great use of colour, texture and emotion. ( Featured by Lyricanna )

Peacocks always remind me of "Rise of the Guardians" now. Sorry, I just had to get it out there. As for this, this lovely and wonderfully simple yet detailed piece of art, I am spellbound. Or spellbinded. What's the difference? I'm awestruck. The peacock-fairy-mermaid-hybrid looks like she is a part of the statue, if it is a statue at all. So magical. I love it. Excellent work!

This is gorgeous, Chicken! I love how your work always has that painterly feel to it. There are places where the brush strokes can be clearly seen and yet everything looks wonderful. Also, you're officially the queen of peacock feathers and moss.

It's so creative and so well-done, it's replaced Maestra Gondola as my favourite doll of yours :D

Ee thank you<33333 I really enjoyed making this and I really do like how my style's change(even though I often miss pixelling and various aspects of my old styles) I actually got in a very brief but big rawr-y fight with those stupid feathers, but the end result delights me. And the moss! Oh god I spent so much time drawing moss for that one big background thing again that half the time I feel like I should use moss just because I have that skill like it's just one thing I can do now. Make green moss-like smears. That is my greatest skill.

<33333333aiya thank you again though Gondola will probably miss the attention(she's an attention whore though so we'll just ignore her) xD
