Petals Fall by nna Petals Fall by nna
Painting I did a while ago for the charity artbook :iconethereal-artbook: which you can still order a copy of here: etherealartbook.storenvy.com/c…

I really enjoyed this project, I hope to do more pieces for charity in the future.

Is she supposed to be Mulan? Because the green and grey remind me of the dress that Mulan had on at the beginning of the movie 8D 

Either way, this is beautiful <3

Aha, no, not Mulan.  I can see how you'd make the connection though!  Mulan's outfit has a bit more color to it and I would have approached this differently if it were Mulan.  Thank you!

Great palette. How long do these usually take you? They look deceptively simple, though I'm sure they're not.
Reply
:iconnna:
nna Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014
Thank you! And aha yeah, deceptively simple is probably the right way to put it, as I can sometimes be very specific in what I'm looking for from a piece.  I don't recall how long this specific one took me, I was given the option of doing either landscape or portrait and I experimented with both.  I ditched an early version, and came up with this some time later (the people putting together the book gave us a lot of time, so I was able to come back to it.)

That makes sense. That's nice that they gave you so much time for the project. I have a few clients like that and they're really fun to work for. Time to play is essential. Do you tend to go through a lot of thumbnails or just dive right in and work things as you go?

:iconnna:
nna Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014
Oh yeah we were given lots of time and just basically given sizes, a very wide prompt and everyone had certain color themes.  My favorite types of projects are those where I'm just left to my own devices and have a lot of time to get it done, I agree it's a lot of fun having clients like that and I feel like the work turns out best that way.

I notoriously hate thumbnails and don't specifically do them unless I must, but I really like to utilize the advantages of the digital age, I stay zoomed out, do really rough sketches and play with positions and poses.  I definitely prefer the work as you go method, it helps me stay loose and reminds me that no matter what- a drawing can change.  One of the major hurdles I had to go through as an artist was realizing that pencils had erasers and that it was okay to redo things time and time again, it's a hard thing to get over when you're working traditionally and you get attached to something you spent hours on and can't fix without wiping the slate clean, so I like to constantly change things and play around when I'm working digitally.
