Wooh! Another thesis piece! *flails* ~(>w<)~

I hope this isn't too dark on some monitors... might be though, since I love doing dark pieces sometimes. <:3

Anyways, here is Elle again... Since she's not entirely human she gets along well with nonhuman things... MONSTERS! They live in this lil thesis world. Yup yup.

A lot of the PLOTZ revolves around these critters and the relationships she builds with them, but I'll save that for later.

There is something weirdly graceful about the creatures that surrounnd her, and I love how you made their eyes glow with curiosity (or just luminescent irises, in some cases).

I don't know if it was on purpose but this really reads as a sister piece to Cruciforest, not only in composition and design, but in the opposite palettes. It's also creepy because the other man, in my view, is surrounded by "comfort objects", the saints, the religious icons, but they're all cold and quiet and without real affection, only important because of a feeling of faith.

While the girl out in the forest is surrounded by living breathing creatures and despite being eerie and not as seemingly comforting, I guess they are? Hahaha, I don't know, maybe I'm reading too much into it but I enjoy both piece a lot, especially together.

Blahg, I wish I was better at the art-speak - I'd praise this proper then, yes I would. But I'm not, so I'll just tell you that I love this. Which I do. (Also that you inspire me something crazy).

What kind of brushes and textures do you apply/use for your pastel like effects? It's very nice, and I dig your monsters <3

Just a round brush with shape and opacity pressure sensitivity. :B I switch it up between 1% and 100% hardness as well.

I'm in love with this piece. The softness of the brushing and fantasticalness of the concept; it is enthralling.
