Thinking of doing a self-portrait for Slow-vember...finished Mushroom Village illustration

  • Re: Mushroom Village WIP

    5 months late...but I finished the painting for June's contest "Mushroom Village" and figured I may as well share it. I procrastinated so hard on this one because I was scared of painting glow-y things at night and messing it up badly. But then I just went for it and actually learned a lot from the process. I'm glad I finished it...better late than never.

    The lady light does glow
    She sets free seeds and moon-beam dreams

    When I was still using watercolor medium, I was also scared messing up the painting when doing new techniques. I'm glad you really went for it. Great work! I like your palette and the design of Lady Light. Is that glowing mushroom her dress? Also, your rhyme sounds amazing.

  • Thanks for the comment. No, the mushrooms aren't a part of her dress, although I had thought about it. I envisioned the Lady Light kneeling in the cavity of one of the mushrooms.
