I'm always tired the last days... that makes it hard to paint a picture. And the idea of something coming out of a tree isn't new at all in my gallery... but I could think about "how to paint tree bark" and I had a nice new brush for the moss.
I think this creature is something like a faun. I loved the idea in "Pan's Labyrinth" that the Pan (faun)had a skin like bark and many other features coming from the nature.
I don't get why this old shitty thing has a DD now ._. I always wanted a DD and now I'm unhappy because this is just not what I can do. Maybe look at this? ->
Cool that it inspired you too for some projects!
i love this story
And you should be more grateful instead of whining because an old drawing got it.
I mean, I'm sure I'll never get a DD, not even in my wildest dreams. And even though I have suggested drawings from friends who really know to draw, they never get one.
She has improved, that's undeniable. But an older drawing got the honor, and I don't really see the problem with that. The fact that it's older doesn't mean it's "shitty". She'll still get the pageviews and probably new watchers who'll see her recent work.
Hence, I don't get the point of complaining.
It's not wasted effort, it's a worthy piece. But that's subjective, I guess. Anyway, i don't have a problem with the artist, she can continue to complain or move on and enjoy the DD and the attention, I suppose.
The way I see it, is like Spielberg complaining because 'Jaws' gets an award and not 'Lincoln'. But that's just me, to each their own.
I wanted a DD, but not under all circumstances. And not with luck as the main thing. I thought some more years of practicing would bring it instead of the opposite. I'm sorry that this just my honest opinion. I'm grateful about anyone who likes my art and I'm happy about every fav, but if I get these kind of award, I think I only deserve it with the best I can do :/
