Harmony in Blue by aridante Harmony in Blue by aridante
An elf maiden enjoying a spring afternoon. Also a play on words. ^O^!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
my GOD this screen is horrible!! LOL!
I had to tweak to this on my really -bad- screen, so if it's too dark, let me know and I'll lighten it up.

~8" x 11" watercolor~

Harmony in Blue by aridante is a wonderful watercolour, full of life and beauty. The colours and shading are near perfect, making this piece a joy to behold. (Thanks to ~plastikwaren for the suggestion) (Selected by +ekud) ( Featured by ekud )

hey, so this is a really nice drawing, really artistic style and mood, the scene is really great, colorful, joyful, relaxing.. but i dont know i wouldnt pick it as DD, sorry.. maybe its just not my type of works or its just boring for me, and the brightness is just fine.. oh well my hp temp 17" monitor is too dark as well :D (Big Grin)

Caught my eye because this looked like Marin from The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening.
Definately kickass work here. Natural media, heh, something I havent tried much, [besides the messy minerals, like charcoal, graphite and such.]

This is truely breathtaking. Your use of traditional mediums are like breaths of fresh air to DevART. Considering that DA is completely taken over by cheap furry/anime. I don't know what else to do to congratulate you for drawing this wonderful image other than faving it, which I will do right now.

Very beautiful, excellent piece your style reminds me of the older masters water colour style. Must be an avid student of the greats and/or your talent is phenominal. Care to give any tips to one who wants to improve. You sure you're not an elf? :) (Smile)
