A Flower Bouquet by leinef A Flower Bouquet by leinef
It's hard to say if I like this picture or not. I really liked the sketch and I even liked it while coloring BUT when I almost finished it, I realied I totally did something wrong. The composition and the color schemes are totally off and not the way I planned it.
Nevertheless I tried my best to finish it... somehow.

Now I scanned it it looks even worse.
But I just want to upload it because I actually still love some parts of it. Like her eyes or her hair!

Will move to scraps later.
EDIT: I would have never thought that so many people would like this picture! Well, guess I won't move it to scraps anymore..

I am so amazed by the fact that it's actually hand-maded (pencil, i mean) it's juste so marvellous *,* even if it's done to the graphic tablet, this drawing is just incredible

The artistry on this picture is top notch. When looking at it your eyes are drawn to the whole picture in different parts instead of there being a focal point and it slowly decreasing to background images. I can see some of what made you unhappy with the picture, but overall it is a fine piece of artwork.

Whoaa *__* Das Bild sieht wirklich sehr schön aus! :heart:
Sowohl die Komposition als auch die Umsetzung sind dir gelungen!
Aber auch die Colorierung sieht klasse aus. Die Farbübergänge sind gut sowie die Schattierungen.
Vor allem die Blumen haben es mir angetan. <3

Vielen Dank! Das freut mich, dass dir das Bild so sehr gefällt :)
Das Bild ist auf jedenfall eine komplette Überraschung für mich, weil es mir selbst gar nicht gefiel und nur hochgeladen hatte, weil ich schon soviel Zeit investiert hatte. Ich hätte wirklich nie nie nie erwartet, dass das Bild soviel positives Feedback bekommt!
Hachiyo Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Dir hat das Bild wirklich nicht gefallen? Wie kann man nur! xD
Wenn du so viel positives Feedback bekommen hast, kann an deiner persönlichen Beurteilung ja etwas nicht stimmen, ne? ;) Aber das kennt glaub ich jeder. Man ist immer hart zu sich selbst.

I actually think this is soo pretty b/c without the inking of most of the person, it feels very different, and nice!! It gives a refreshing feeling <3 <3

Ahhhhh, wo ist meine Spucke?! Wo ist meine Spucke *schüttel* :faint: XDDDD
DIESES Bild wolltest du ernsthaft scrappen, you must have gone crazy D:
Ah, ich kann mich da einfach nur wiederholen, deine Colo ist so wunderschön ;__; Und ich beneide dich darum! Ich würde wirklich so gern colorieren wie du!
Vor allem wie du diese Buntstiftstruktur nur beibehalten kannst, das sieht so toll aus und auch deine Farbmischungen sind toll! Die Farbübergönge blau-grün!! Ah, das ist ein Traum! Ich finde auch dass du das teilweise offen gelassen hast (wie bei den Haaren) sehr schön und die Mohnblumen gefallen mir so gut!

Die Komposition ist toll und die Farbgebung gefällt mir ebenfalls richtig gut :love:
leinef Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
ahhhhhh das freut mich so sehr <3333
Ja wirklich, ich war tot unglücklich als das Bild fertig war, weil ich einfach so... unzufrieden war mit mir. Jetzt mal ehrlich, ich hätte NIE erwartet dass soviele so positiv auf das Bild reagieren! Eigentlich wollte ich es gar nicht mal hier hochladen, aber dafür hatte ich einfach zuviel Zeit reingesteckt x)
Das mit der Buntstiftstruktur: Das richtige Papier hilft da enorm ;)

I can't believe you were going to move this piece to your scraps! It's absolutely beautiful and stunning!*A*<333
I love the colours, the details on the flowers and her expression is just...<33333
But I know how you feel; it's always really disappointing when the end result differs from the initial plan ;_;/patpat

She is really beautiful, still what I loved the most are the flowers, you draw and painted them so well! It's just wonderfull :iconiloveitmoreplz:

i'm speechless!
ashiong Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2011  Professional General Artist
but i thinks it's cool! i love how the white color and shades combined one to each other. The white parts make your picture stand out in my list of deviation. I think the lower right part is the best one! i love the gradation and also the colors are very great!
TheGreatMillz33 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I can't understand why you would think of moving this to your scraps in the first place. IT'S FREAKING AMAZING!!!!

Neeein, nicht verschieben ö__ö
Vielleicht ist es nicht so geworden, wie du es haben wolltest, aber ich finds total schön! *O*
Auch die Farben und die Komposition... also wehe, du löschst es! xD
Celestial91 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2011  Student General Artist
Wow...ich bin sprachlos...
es ist wunderschööön.
Das Motiv ist klasse... mit den Blumen sieht echt schön aus. Alles ist so harmonisch aufgebaut.
Und dein Colostil ist auch wundervoll.
Was für eine Papier verwendest du? Man sieht nämlich die Struktur des Papiers. Das macht das Bild interessanter^^

your fixing job seems pretty good though!
was there originally a lot of white before you scanned it?
Hixateez Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Her hair is gorgeous:heart: And all the flowers are beautiful! And the combination of green and red, and orange and blue that I can see balances the picture, even if it was unintended.
Her eyes are beautiful, too, and I like the way you've colored the jewels.

I LOVE THIS!!:heart::excited:
