Hi there! I'm here with another WIP! But don't worry this time it won't take ages to finish it XD
At least because the deadline of the contest is the 30 september >.>

However, I leave the link to the scrap on DeviantART page: http://rafuschan.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5ek0xy
This time the setting is a lake, and the girl is a fairy :) I did only a part of the lineart, the girl is complete...the most unfinished part is the background, since I don't know exactly with type of plants I should put...


I made a quick research two days ago, but I'm not sure about what I found...
So here I am, to ask you any suggestions and tips like the last time :D

Thanks in advance to anyone will help me ^^

Well, since it is a fairy that you're recreating, it would be nice to have plants that look surreal or plants that aren't what you call "plants" in our world. XD If you ever watched AVATAR, there in the world of Pandora, the plants are weird-looking yet they are beautiful to look at. :D

Some flowers/petals floating in the lake would be nice perhaps?

BTW, that's some fine recreation of your old work. ^^v

specially with dark colors, then you can add some glowing effects from the flowers or the fireflies maybe?

Unfortunally, I can't go ahead with this work before that the next week >.< But i'm doing some sketch of flowers and plants on papers for now :D

I also agree with Horseradish, "fantastic" plants would be perfect, they would make the atmosphere really fairy. However, if you prefer real plants, in my opinion a willow would be fine. The drawing is very nice, but the girl's head seems a little strange ... Maybe it's just me, but it seems detached from the rest of the body, as if its position didn't match with that of the body. Maybe it should be a bit more turned toward the viewer in order to rest her chin on her shoulder.

seems you are already following the suggestion from Horseradish (an excellent suggestion, moreover), but I'd like to add an other suggestion. It's close to that from Lisa, since when I saw this sketch (nice *__*) with lake, my mind immediately run to the OA by ProjectVirtue. So, the idea are hanging plants, but with flowers instead leaves, and some of them that just touching water and her legs.
I add some links from manga/anime scans and real photos:

Jigoku Shoujo scans: link 1 - link 2
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle scan: link
Tenshi Nanka Ja Nai scan: link
Black Locust photos: link 1 - link 2
Wisteria photos: lilac kind - white kind
Laburnum photos: link 1 - link 2
Dendrobium farmeri photo: link

Anyway, whatever background you'll do, surely it will be an other masterpiece of yours *.*

Those flowers look like flying waterlilies, they're so beautiful!

Floating flowers *___* and really original chosen shapes for the hanging plants! You're a drawing goddess Raffa o.o

Thanks again :3 I'll just edited the file on DA, however I don't know if I'll able to finish it in time XD
But whatever...I'll finish it anyway :3
Plus, I think I'm going a little out of contest's theme...the result until now is TOTALLY different from the old version -.-

Quote by RaffachanI think I'm going a little out of contest's theme...the result until now is TOTALLY different from the old version -.-

?__?

Old version: a fairy - a tree - a lake
New version: a fairy - more plants - a lake

Basically them have the same elements. There is only one thing totally changed: your skills. The old drawing is nice, but your actual level is so damn high! O.O of course there will be an abyss among them, at the end! But the contest purpose is proper this one, right? Show improvements. It's up to participants deciding in which way, imo U_U

About your latest editing, the nocturnal view was your idea since the beginning, or you decided for it after viewing the OA by ProjectVirtue? Anyway, it's turning out totally amazing! And you did the hanging plants luminous *______*

Even if is still 'under construction', this piece appears already beautiful. It will be my next desktop for sure! ^.^
