Mekania Commission by nefgoddess Mekania Commission by nefgoddess
This took way to long to finish, but was officially started 4 months or so ago if memory serves.

I like her dress and the composition, but im personally not entirely happy with it for some reason. Happy with the character , not the bg. I may have over worked it ><.

Its 15 inches by 11 with the boarder, and I think about 12x 9 without.

Took over 20 hours spread out over the last 6 months (seriously working on it for about 3). Did it in about 5-6 sit downs.

Media- Watercolour, white guoche and watercolour pencil on cold press illustration board

This is positively gorgeous. I see nothing wrong with the background at all, it's a beautiful scene and you did a great job with those flowing drapes. The character looks beautiful but I have to admit that it's the drapes and the sky that really catch my eye!

I think it's lovely work! The billowing curtains and the clouds in the background really give this a dreamy feel to it. I love the detail you've put into the character from the embellishments in the outfit to the feathers in the wings. Great work!
