Emerald by adlovett Emerald by adlovett
This piece took a while to finish between projects, but I learned quite a bit in the process. It was partially inspired by my Jewel painting in 2009.

I'm toying with painting Ruby and Sapphire sometime.. but I have some other really cool ideas I want to paint first... stayed tuned!

It is an amazing piece of Art. And every time I look in to the creature's eyes I feel cumpeled to capture, in to paper, the same point of view, you saw this beautiful creuture in your mind...Two words: Breathe taking.
And the fact that you used complementary colours makes the pictures more alive and beautifully made. The traits, the little reminders that the creature gender's a female are so beutifully done. The tentacles resembling the luxurious creature hair; the 'shy' sholder; the plumbed lips and the mesmerizing green eyes...magnificent.
Please, keep the amazing work you're doing, the world needs, i need to see beautiful and talented artists fuit of their labor.

Thanks! This is a character design for a story I'm planning to develop sometime in the near future. My design has evolved quite a bit since this piece, so I'm excited to share it when I get back into it!
