Mother Earth by TirraMisu Mother Earth by TirraMisu
So, this piece started out being my thoughts on solitude, but my beloved pointed out how nature-oriented this all was and came up with the title Mother Nature.

Anyway, I am experimenting and trying to discover how to develop my personal style. I was really inspired by :iconkidchan:'s use of textures and wanted to give it a try. I also really love Mehndi and Slavic designs (partly due to my heritage) and wanted to incorporate them to make the piece more personal. And of course, I always love the texture of drawings, so I tried to keep the original graphite-drawn lines intact.

Thanks for looking!

Medium: graphite-drawing base; photoshop, home-made textures with a couple sprinkled in from webtreats

It is hard to be original when it comes to Mother Earth. Excellent.

I love this! The color scheme is very earthy and mellow! Her face looks innocent yet wise! It's absolutely lovely! I'd love to learn how to blend traditional and digital! However, I must practice traditional first~ Slavic huh? Which country?  I believe I have some Slavic-y routes dancing around in my family so...Meow :3

I love this piece. And you can see the Kidchan influence, but in a really individual, authentic way. I want to do a few pieces like that, myself. Seriously, I think this is beautiful.
