Anemone, on the shore by meluseena Anemone, on the shore by meluseena
Against the backdrop of the sea, Anemone flashed me with her mirror and I was compelled to paint...



This is a straightforward airbrush painting made in Photoshop CS2. I wanted to keep the brushstrokes loose and kind of SInger-Sargent-y.

I'm on a Singer-Sargent stint of late. :)

I just had a look at the comic you made--what a beautiful concept, and a comforting one. It's interesting that your muse is dressed in black (a lot of symbolism in that poppy flower as well) even though she serves as a guiding light. Like everyone else, I adore the idea of the mirror, and you chose the perfect style & color palette to depict this girl and her purpose. Love how much it looks like an oil painting. Excellent!

She's so sweet-looking, she's got that Snow White-esque beauty going on. And I love those freshly-pinched rosy cheeks! C:

Thanks! :) I seem to sometimes want to draw ';painterly' and sometimes to digital collage :) My illustration also splits into these categories.

Thank you, the loose brushstrokes were my intention, as I feel I tend to oversmoothen paintings which is fine in itself but I wanted to go for a grittier, almost traditional-art painting. :)
