What Lies Beneath by Josiane-Rey What Lies Beneath by Josiane-Rey
WHAT INSPIRED ME
------------------------
Before I started doing manips, my favorite hobby was writing. I used to write fanfics, RPG stories but mainly romances based on Lord of The Rings. Well, in fact, I’ve created a whole world – click here -> [link] to see it – but that’s another story. :nod:

The fact is that my best stories were written while I was listening to the music. Music is part of my life, I don’t work properly without it. And the music of Enya was always a huge inspiration for me. With manips aren’t different. It’s so much better and easier working listen to the music.

Then I picked my Enya’s favorite songs up and starting to work. This piece is the result. I think it represent the song perfectly well. It’s a kind of magic, mythic, mysterious and beautiful in its own way. I hope you liked it.

You have done very well. Lighting the elements in an artwork can make or break the whole composition in my opinion.

It's really pretty! I love the composition, the colours and the overall feeling in here. I wonder if she isn't a tiny bit to big to fit in the boat :hmm: anyway, great work :clap:

:iconjosiane-rey:
Josiane-Rey Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, I think she is. :nod:
But we can’t forget that we are in a magical land… the boat can be magical and refit itself according to its passenger… or maybe it belongs to the tines faeries who live in that wood and they forget the boat there… plenty of possibilities… :wink:

Just kidding dear… thanks for your comment hun … :glomp:

Oh I love it! I've always wanted to use that stock from *MarjoleinART-Stock but I've never done it! You used it wonderfully here! Very nice! I wish I could help you out with a name but alas, I'm horrible at naming my pieces too! :giggle:

I had this stock saved for a while. I think is very difficult to use it, because the stock itself is just perfect, you look and can’t see how to improve it, it is already wonderful the way it is :nod:

Nice to hear you liked it. Thank you dear.:hug:

Acredita que eu comecei esse background para outro trabalho? O Avalon, que postei antes. Eu nunca consigo fazer uma coisa só. Começo com uma stock e vou fazendo variações dela, e no final tenho 2 coisas completamente diferentes... :rofl:
Só eu mesma... =D
