A very romantic vampire couple you created here.There poses and clothing are very beautiful,the whole scenery has something dreamingly and melancholic in it.

do u support the new age vampires or the older version of vampires?
Reply
:iconmelyanna:
melyanna Featured By Owner May 29, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Older version all the way.
I used to play the "Vampire: the masquerade" roleplaying game by Whitewolf and many of my vampires are inspired by that.
Besides from that, I love the novel by Bram Stoker and even some more traditional horror stories.

wdf is i t always about twilight...i would love it if people get over that they sparkle and get on with life...its someones own idea for the fact that they have sparkles...i see it as they were trying to make it where it wasn't copied take that into point of veiw as well

Yup!
And I am kinda glad that you asked - I did this way before Twilight was written, so it is a bit weird when people associate it with those books.
Though obviously I am always flattered when people like my art, even if they relate it to Twilight and even if I don't really like sparkly vampires and abusing boyfriends.

Very lovely! I especially love the moon and all the little stars, the detailing like that. Did you use salt to make the stars?

Thank you so much for the nice comment! :)
I used egg tempera (a permanent fast drying painting medium, like acrylics, but made of natural pigments) and an old toothbrush.
I filled the toothbrush with tempera, like you'd do with a brush, then placed it above the sheet and moved the bristles with my finger. The bristles are flexible, but hard, so they spray small stills of paint on the sheet.
It's really funny. :)
Just be careful, if you try it, to cover up things you don't want to be painted, on the sheet and outside of it! :D
There is a better explanation here: [link]

I love the coloring and the whole design of your picture. The gargoyle statues are awesome! I feel as if I'm looking at a beautiful image on a stained glass window. The only comment that I have to make about this piece is the shadowing under the woman...it makes her look like she is floating. Maybe make the shadowing my sparse to fix that issue.

I always like comments like this.
I have that problem with shading to add depth: it's always either too dark or too light.

Beautiful! I love the color palate you used and the way the sky kind of curves around the moon. It would be really cool to see deeper shadows around the vampires themselves to give it more of a mysterious feel. :D great job!

This was my first experiment with this kind of colouring, but I'd love to do some new pictures coloured in the same way, with improved contrast as you suggest.
