Would you mind if I used this as a tattoo?
KmyeChan Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Not at all! Can you send me a picture when the tattoo is completed? Thanks! :)

Most Definitely :)

Your style is just amazing!

I'm absolutely falling in love with your style! It's quite Tim Burton-esque; I love it! Keep up the outstanding work! ~<3

Hello there :) While I make art, I usually look at your art in hopes that it would make my art good too. At the moment I'm making a piece that involves clouds. How did you make the clouds in this piece?
KmyeChan Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks! :)
Well, it's actually hard to explain with words... I worked out the shapes and textures with layers of watercolors, and then I added the highlights with white and pink acrylics. I'm afraid I can't be more specific, experimenting and seeing how it works out is the only way to get the knack! :)
skelling-jen13 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Actually I found the basic technique for how to do water color clouds here; [link]
Thank you though!
Lets see how this picture of mine comes out :p
KmyeChan Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, that's exactly how I'm doing it too. Good luck! ;)

I think the striped lining of her dress is my favorite part, but the twisted cage is wonderful, too! The texture in the background is terrific. I'd actually love to see you illustrate a kid's book - you have a really distinctive style that would lend itself well to fairy tales, I think.

I love the way you do dresses - there are always so many wonderful details in them. The warped cage is fantastic, and the texture in the background is amazing. Love it!

I absolutely love your style I'd love to have a portrait of myself done by you.

OMG... amazing... <3
littlelove-lolo Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2008
If Tim Burton and Shakespeare had a love child! :D Awesome. This is absolutely amazing. I love the spindly, delicate, and even slightly chaotic appearance that the cage's uneven construction brings to the piece. Lovelovelove!
icarus-girl Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2008
Really striking. I think I like the striped part of her dress and the warped cage the best - and also that she doesn't look trapped in it at all. There's a very dreamy, surreal quality to this, but not in a nightmarish or menacing way despite the colors. Very nice work!
eddiopolis Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2008
Your work is awesome. I really admire your creativity and imagination. Every one of your draws shows a part of your own world and I love it. Great. Simply Great!
sporkweilder Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2008
This really reminds me of Sweeny Todd! If you have seen it, the Green finch and Linnet bird song, sung by Joanna... She sings of being caged and learning how to fly.

I love it!
EternalMisfit Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2008
You have such a peculiar style. It reminds me of a more reformed version of the gothic era. Muted colors combined in a array of storytelling so subtle that it could easily be misconstrued. But I digress, it is simply wonderful. Magnificent display.

I love the surreal, dark and yet innocent concept, and that quill rocks. Amazing as always!
philemonjung Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
Incredibly beautiful...
Gloomanati Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2008
Ooh, beautiful!
I thought of Johanna all locked up in Sweeney Todd :)

Sleetwealth Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
This is cool. I like the cage with the drapeing of stars at the opening also her long thin limbs
applestix Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2008
you should totally come out with a childrens book 8 D
Spiderjuice Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
I like the colors and the concept.
Sukiro Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
C'est superbe!
J'aime en particulier les p'tits reflets sur le métal de la cage...ça donne tout de suite plus de volume...*/0*
Kagitsune Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2008  Professional Interface Designer
I like the fact that the "cage" is open... she looks serious, yet happy. I guess she loves her job! ^w^
mistress-pandora Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2008
gorgeous, i love the stars and her dress
she almost looks like a bird stuck in a cage, what with the quil and all.
purely amazing
HappyFlakes Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008
the girl in the pic looks like lucy from sweeney todd.
ok. that might of sounded weird.
Charsier Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I've never used a Quill, are they easy to handle?

Wonderful as always~! <3
KmyeChan Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ahah, no, not really (at least not for me !).
Thank you!
Charsier Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Hehe, well, it is a giant feather. It must take a lot of practice. x___X

:3 You're welcome~:heart:
Renatototozao Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2008
Very Nice !!!
U r a amazing drawer !! XD
Minx188 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2008
Your gallery is marvelous. Your work are in mixed media, it shows you have skills in a wide range of meduims not just one. Brilliant. Just a quick question , in arcylics do you use the" feathering " method in order to blend the paints togerther to create a smooth tone?
KmyeChan Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
:) To be honest, I've learnt acrylics on my own by trial and error, and I don't really know what the "feathering" method is...! I just take very small amounts of paint, than spread them on the paper with light strokes using water to smooth the thiner parts, and I work like that using many layers until the colour is correctly blended and consistent.
TheTerribleBeauty Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
It's beautiful. Kind of creepy, though, in a good way. Like The Nightmare Before Christmas. I love it.
Asfodelo Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2008  Student General Artist
great work with the colors!
yeah, I love quills too...don't know why, though
