Syllia's Dream by Dianae Syllia's Dream by Dianae
Hi there !

I know I've been away for quite a looong time… actually for almost one year.
I went through some pretty hard life times but things got better and I've finally been able to paint again last month
So… here's the result : a painting which is meant to be used as posters and flyer backgrounds for my alternative metal band.
It is not as realistic as the first Syllia painting since I wanted to go for a more graphical look, something a bit less "fantasy" and more dynamic.


:star:FULL SYLLIA… SERIES:star:



I was in a hurry when I painted this one so some parts may look rushed but I spent quite a long time on the body and bubbles (these almost killed me !), I'd say almost 35 hours went into the painting process. I guess I've never enjoyed painting so much as it meant a lot to me to be able to paint again.

References used for the body (several ugly grainy snapshots taken with an old cheap 2megapixels camera, self timer mode -_-' ) and I also googled several images to understand how reflection, light and colours worked on soap bubbles.

Here's a crappy-looking WIP step : [link]

Here's where it has already been used (I had not finished the nails and ribbons yet when I made our myspace layout and flyers, I may change these soon)

Thanks a lot for looking =)

Have a wonderful day everybody !


:star: EDIT : OMG a DD *___* I don't even know what to say, this floored me ! I just got internet back today and I fell off the chair when I saw this. Thank you so much :iconsweetylulu: and :iconarchann: You guys don't even imagine how much you made my day, this is so good to see my first post-depression artwork appreciated after so many months of doubt. Thank you :hug: :aww: :star:

Syllia, my love - I have floated for you...your eye for what is true in the soul has song in it, movement in stillness and magic through creation.
May I simply put the above in my favorites? Syllia's Dream...I see there is a button to put in favorites, I will take a chance, you are a rare creature with an eye that surpasses into another green world.
Thank you...
