209 (who?)
Muetterchen by iphigen Muetterchen by iphigen
Copic Marker on Copic Paper; Shiny golden paper, Eddings, Pencil.

This was actually based on a dream I once had. It was supposed to look like an Art Nouveau picture but I didn't really manage to make it look the way I wanted it to.
The edges are quite shiny in reality. They look much more golden than they do on this scanned version. The colors do also look better on the original.
I think I succeded in making the drawing look peaceful and dreamy so I'm pretty satisfied. I wanted to draw a picture that everyone would wish to be in.

Thank you for the DD :heart:

Muetterchen by *iphigen is a lovely drawing that irradiates peace and beauty, the figure seems to invite the viewer to step in the picture... swans are powerful symbolic presences, often standing for love, beauty or spiritual transcendence. ( Featured by stigmatattoo )

I hope you don't mind my asking, but are you an illustrator? Some of your works remind me of certain fairy tales so I was a bit curious :D
Another beauty by the way!

I'm going to study illustration next year and I really hope be able to become a professional illustator :)

Also ich finde das sieht sehr fein nach Jugendstil aus. Natürlich mit Angie Färbung aber das macht´s doch erst interessant. Wunderbar.

zuerst mal muss ich sagen, dass all deine bilder einfach genial sind :)! dein stil ist einfach toll und deine bilder sind so reich an details und vorallem gefällt mir der hintergrund :D!

Dankeschön, freut mich, dass es dir gefällt! Und das obwohl Hintergründe mir immer ein Gräul sind. Die dauern auch immer am längsten, bei meinem aktuellen Bild sitz ich schon seit Tagen dran, weil ich einfach zu faul bin. Danke auch für die favs :heart:

Ja, ich kanns echt nachvollziehen das Hintergründe zu malen echt zeitauftreibend sind und für mich selbst auch schwieriger zu malen...oft bin ich auch zu faul x)! freu mich schon auf dein neues bild ^^!
