She Collapsed into Colour by ChelseaHantken She Collapsed into Colour by ChelseaHantken
I'm really sad I couldn't upload a bigger picture... the file I was working on was about 5000x8000 pixels, so there's so much detail you miss but... what can you do.

Progress: www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi…

I actually didn't plan for this to be a fan picture of Zooey Deschanel. When I started the picture, it was just for practice but then the colours and the swirls came & I just went with it. So even if it's not really my vision, maybe there'll be some Zooey fans who can appreciate it. I was actually working with colours to begin with, that made my eyes hurt so I mellowed them out a bit.


Going through a bit of a dark time, would you believe? :|

So beautiful! I love the colours used. A picture can really tell 1000 words can't it. My interpretation of this piece is she is looking out worried as things may be becoming too technology based. I get this from the oranges, browns, reds, and greens you have used, the feathers on the shoulder, and the birds on the shoulder. I love the contrast between the hot and cold colours as they are not so vibrant and in your face but that are a nice change from one to another. This piece is simply amazing and i am a big fan of your work and would love to draw like you one day!
What do you think?

this is a beautifully done work, and yes, I would believe, in a way I believe the beautiful colours are in a way a way to counter the darkish mood, .

Beautiful work. I love the colours in this and the repeating curved lines and swirls. It's a nice detail with the birds on the one shoulder and the feathers on the other. :)

You are very welcome Chelsea, you are a very talented artist.
Have you ever heard of a piece of art being referred to as a Da vinci or a Monet just by the viewer looking at it.
well from the thumbnail I could tell it was one of yours, without reading the text.
That my friend is what artist's strive for. You have a unique style of your very own. :)
Keep them coming my friend.
