Endlessly by CHOCOCHIYOKO Endlessly by CHOCOCHIYOKO
This is my biggest watercolor ever! It's about 1 foot by 2 feet. I'm pretty proud of this one. About 16 hours of work on the painting, and a couple extra on digital touch-ups :D
The theme in this painting is "Endlessness" or Infinity. This is shown in the different styles of art I tried to pay tribute to (Gothic and Renaissance mostly) and the characters.
The extra character is an illustration of the artist, who do the impossible (wings) and live forever (statue) through their work.
Plixe, symbol of childhood, is sitting on the throne made by mankind (civilization), she is holding a scepter (science) and flowers (nature). She is wearing her old yellow dress but it's clean, she is also cloaked in the universe and the sun: all of which she is meant to inherit.
Liment is averting his eyes from the scene while Arth is completely turned around. They are both holding Plixe's sleeves, holding her back.
Dan....coughhasabscough...uhm idk tired think later haha

An absolutely stunning blend of colors, and themes. I love the way you bring each element of the picture to life through the paints, and the depth of the picture is wonderful. Each individual picture inside of the piece tells a different story, yet they are all connected to each other. Some people may see it just as a painting with a lot going on, but I like the meaning behind everything. The personification of childhood looks exactly like I imagined, and she is beautiful on her throne. All in all, a beautiful piece, and well worth the time and effort you put into it.
What do you think?

Very colourful . And I lovvveeeee the colour combination . But then , I think you should add on some outline because in my opinion it's kind of *cough*messy*cough* . I don't really know how to draw and I'm kind of shocked that you used 16 hours to do this . You should be proud . I know that not everybody have the patience . HONESTLY . Oh , and one more thing .... The *cough*nipples*cough* are too close together , they should be more far apart IMO . :)

As for the colours ~ I told you that I loooovvvveeeee the colour combination (U R A GENIUS) and I'm still reeling from the fact that you used traditional media for this . IT LOOKS SO DIGITAL .
I forgotten to tell you , this is written from a POV of a fourteen-year-old . So don't get so worked up by it. :3

That is amazing! What great effects can be made vivid by watercolours and digitalism! The great mixture of so many colours are flowing neatlessly together and are tightly interwoven. You have used a lot of symbolism of Christianity like angels and Mother Mary with the little Jesus in the little round portrait at the bottom right of the picture.
Plixe is rather a goddess of mythology. She is really great.
The young man in the foreground (could it be the person you called Dan?) looks rather like arch-angel Michael, God's Commander in Chief. But there are no flames at the sword and the green refers rather to Raphael, the healing angel.
But a lot of great ideas you have employed. So, great originality and interesting style by the mixture of two common styles.

Thanks! I'm had you like it XD Actually I'm pretty clueless about Christianity so the only thing that was intentional was the mother And Jesus in the bottom corner Haha. I like it when people can read more into it though since it shows that they took the time to look at it And think about it XD. Maybe the references were subconscious since I've been studying art history....as for Dan (Yeah he's the one in front) I script just wanted to draw a nice shirtless guy with a sword Haha XD

The details in this are astounding, especially the work on the throne. The fact it's all traditional, too~ :faint:. The white border was an excellent touch, and I really love your placement of the characters and their designs.
