Love WIP take 2
Hi everyone, I got really inspired by the draw 50 things class and decided to do something different for the Love prompt. Decided to go a completely different way with this.
Wrote a little rhyme
“Bubble bubble toil and trouble,
Heartache burn and and lovers squabble.
Fungal stems and dragon eyes,
Find the lovers, hear their cries.
Even quicker than it started,
May the strongest bonds be parted”
Which is gonna go in the top left corner. I probably won’t be able to do 50 things but I’m sure as heck gonna try.
The right side is gonna show the witch brewing a potion in her cauldron under the he chimney and the fumes are going to rise and form a broken heart. A cat will be swiping at it. Those are some items I’m drawing just as I brainstormed and found some reference images.

This sounds like a brilliant idea, I already love the rough you've done too and the poem is great! Looking forward to see how it progresses
@Aleksey What a great take on the prompt, I can’t wait to see it!
@Aleksey That is an intriguing idea to go opposite! I really like the line on the bird in the too small cage. One question I have about the thumbnail is the dark curved line extending from the witch over the pot. My first thought was that is a handle to the cauldron, and there is a tangent problem, the next was that it is her arm extending over the pot and then tossing something in, but the line goes past the pot... what was your plan for that spot?
@juliepeelart That's the opening in the chimney. The big cylinder with the broom leaning on it is a big stone/brick chimney. The big curve line is a placeholder for the firebox/mantle of the chimney. Everything will be clearer in the next sketch I make.

@Aleksey Sounds like a great idea. I'd suggest allowing the viewer to see inside the pot that's stirring. Then you could have some of the 50 things as floating ingredients in the potion.

A very creative angle on the "love" prompt. I can't wait to see the progress!

@Aleksey Aw, man. This is a great concept! With that nice dark witch in front of the bright fire it's gonna be really awesome

@sigross yeah i was gonna do that! Gonna also try and get some magic brew fumes coming around it
@Braden-Hallett yeah if i draw it well enough lol
Ok here’s a rough sketch of where things are gonna go. Haven’t done the part figuring out which objects go where yet though just placeholders

Wow. This is a very challenging composition. Really well done. Would love to see how it develops further.
@xin-li i do too
More updated sketch. Blarg would have done more but so tired from work. I hate working retail.

@Aleksey This is looking really good. I know them retail blues
If I might; for the meter on the last two lines, would you consider:
"Even quicker than it starts,
May strongest bonds be pulled apart”
just a suggestion
I love the witch character. It's like she's pulled out of out fairy tales...or mayby from some Terry Pratchett novel
@Kris being compared to terry pratchet books??
And ty for the suggestion that does sound good but i wanna emphasize rhyme just because it’s fun
@Aleksey This is looking fanatastic, really great work!

This is looking amazing! Love the composition and the poem. Plus that little cat.
Keep up the great work!
This is looking good. I love the 50things projects so I’m routing for you to make it happen. Good luck on the contest. This is already one of my favorites.
