Forgotten by the world by artsaves1228 Forgotten by the world by artsaves1228
This is my entry for *bloodymarie-stock's Victoria Frances contest! I adore Victoria's artwork so I had to enter this, she does mostly sad, dark girls too which I love of course :giggle: We were supposed to use one of *bloodymarie-stock's stock photos meant for this contest and create our own piece inspired by a painting by Victoria Frances, INSPIRED being the keyword...Most of the entries look pretty much the same and look almost exactly like the original painting by Victoria and are all digital works so I wanted to make it my own...I love drawing sunset/sunrises so I really wanted to do that with this piece. Two things Im not good at drawing---bird and clothes, so they dont look the best I know. And I know I didnt do the wings, I figured there was already enough going on in the drawing and for some reason I just thought it looked best without them this time. The shadows from the tree and the girl were kinda hard, cause I used charcoal OVER acrylic paint, and didnt seem to wanna shade very well or shade very dark this time. But oh gosh, I spent forever on this. Used just about every medium possible, was a pain in the ass but worth it :D I hope you like it :heart:

this is the pic I used as a reference> [link]
and heres Victoria France's original painting> [link]


about 6 hours
10x14inch Arches watercolor paper
charcoal, charcoal pencils, white charcoal, markers, pastels, acrylic paint, some cheap ass black paint. q-tips and cottonballs to shade

I give ~VictoriaFrancesClub =Death-Chicks *DeviantDolls ~darkclub and *DivasOfDarkDesires *EliteArtists ~artiswhatwemakeit *darkelements *Corset-Fetish-Club permission to submit this in the club

This is just really REALLY good, awesome illustration....and Arches is hard paper to work on as well. Love the texture and that gradient in the sky, smooth as silk.....well done there, very much so. I can really see this being used commercially

thank you :aww: I used one of those fan paintbrushes that looks like this> [link] They work really good for doing trees, just put a little bit of paint on it and kind of lightly tap it over and over on the paper til it looks good :D

Wow!There are so many entries.Most of them are manips and they are all very similar with each other.There are a few drawings but I think that this one is way better than all of them together.

the reason why some works look almost the same as the orginal, can be beacuse first the contest was to make it look as much as the orginal as possible:P but then they changed that, to just be inspired by her art. I guess I wasn't the only one who thought it would be boring to not give the works ones own personal touch, and also that all works would look almost the same:P

and I can also say there was at least some more drawings, even though I used both drawing and photomanipulation in my work..
good luck in the contest!:aww:

yeah I noticed the rules were kind of changed in the middle of the contest, I think I still would've done the same thing. I always like making something my own anyway and giving it something different.

oh yes, I just saw yours. I love how you mixed traditional with digital, you dont see many people do that very good anymore :love:

thank you :aww:

SandraHultsved Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
yes, so I actually have another one in the same style but that look like her orginal pic(can be seen in my scraps on Snowcryztal). Don't think that one would have turned out very well so I'm glad they changed the rules:)
Thank you so much^^ I was so scared it would turn out good:P

A snow white drawing would so perfectly fit your style, to me! When I saw this drawing, I thought about Snow White while my boyfriend thought about The Crow :giggle:

I've actually done a few drawings from The Crow comic, I dont have them online anywhere though, they're pretty old :D
