Aurora by blue-willow Aurora by blue-willow
Aurora ~Under My Cloak of Stars~

Yet another Enchanted Visions theme, but probably the most fun of them for me. I enjoyed working on this one, and it was a rather fast work. Especially the starry cloak and the aurora sky was lots of fun :D

I must say that I really like colored pencils & watercolor mix style. It's quite convenient. I can do all the detailing I want with colored pencils and I can create better backgrounds with watercolors. I'm still experimenting and working on this new technique but I'm sure I'll become better. As they say, practice makes it perfect :D

Anyway, I hope you all like this one as much as I do :)


----
Materials used: Colored pencils, watercolors, watercolor pencils, white, silver and gold gel pens, fineliner.

Beautiful colors! The composition is so striking. I really like how balanced everything is and the way you have her cloak flaring out - it adds a bit of drama.

Thank you dear :aww:
Actually I've been included to Enchanted Visions project from the start, but lately I couldn't really find enough time to work on EV themes , so I decided to work on some past themes I missed ^^; And now I'm so full of inspiration, drawing one after another, I missed this feeling :D
I'm really happy you like this Stefania :heart: I want to see your Aurora as well, I think your lovely albino Fanhir would make a good Aurora :giggle:

As for your other comment, a fineliner is just an inked pen (with very fine tip, mine is 0.05) to lining over the pencil drawing. You know, just one of those pens to ink your drawing, it's just a fancy name :D

Ahhh.. Thanks for info... I never know that these pensa have also this name... Sounds cool! :la:

Very welcome! :huggle:

Eh eh... I just colored my "Aurora".. I hope to finish soon... ^^;
In truth, I've so many difficults to draw it, because I'm not too much inspired for this theme (do you know the other theme of this month? "Stardancer"!!! That's cool! :la: )
Not.... I'm so sorry, but I think never use my OC Fanhir for EV, eh eh.... Also if EV request our OCs! :D
I know EV abowith the theme "Stock Photo"... That's nice idea! :meow:
But the busy time is a very enemy for to draw every time the themes, ahahaha! :D

It's ok, it's just a fancy name and I like it :D

And I just saw your Aurora :heart:

And yes, yes, the most amazing theme for EV is probably "Stardancer", my next one will be definitely it :D

Ah, I see, I just thought Fanhir would look good as aurora that's all, drawing or not drawing her for any theme is of course your choice:)
