Sabine of Seraphik

NZEQ commission for Seraphik/Lucy, of her OC Sabine.

This is a more experimental work, in which I have not done traditional for a while. The lining was done with Staedler's liners which turned out to be completely not waterproof. The lines were savaged as it was scanned, and then it was printed from laser printer and coloured with acrylics, copics, and white gel pen. 

It was largely experimental as I have not worked on laser printer based paper before, it was similar to work on gesso surface. Also I couldn't find a good, functional yellow gel pen and acrylics don't stick to the laser surface well. 

In the end the only thing I had to alter post scanning was fixing the colours to make it look more like the original painting. So I guess it's not too bad?

    Fun angle, cool coloring and lighting. I especially enjoy the shape of the masonry behind her,

    her flyaway hair, and those watchful pale-green eyes. Smile

    Nice; the figure stands out even with the bright background, that's not easy to do.

      Thank you so much! This is such a nice comment, consider that my biggest concern of this picture is HI I AM RED DID I MENTION I'M RED.

        Oh, I had an operation in late Feb for endometriosis, and they found that I had stage 1- small growths that essentially kicked my body completely out of shape D: The gyno burned it off though and I'm not eating wheat again Big Smile (GLORIOUS glorious pizza!), but Miriam had the same op just last week and she had stage 2 Sad I'm going to go visit her when she's more recovered and TOTALLY have a big pizza party where a heap of us order the most gluten filled pizza we can find and DEVOUR it till we nearly pop XD IT'll be EPIC.

        I heard tumblr was good- is it losing popularity now? Man, those things are so trendy :/

            Oh man- so much has changed since then cause I've had limping issues that I've gone to EVERYONE about, and I'm finally at a homeopath now that says that I'm limping cause of Crohns disease, and she has me on all sorts of watered down poisons and a no fun diet XD It seems to be working, but I wish I was flatting cause it's a pain to my parents. Still saving up for that though >.< Apparently this caused me to be aware of my endo. Go figure :/ It makes sense though. Upset the stomach and everything else follows.
