Prisoner of thoughts
These last weeks I have searched more than ever for art to express myself, sometimes I feel that I cannot explain everything with words, sometimes I just draw for fun and crazy ideas that come to my mind, but this time it is not like that, this time I wanted capture how I feel in this work, which can also be interpreted by each one as you like, however, I imagine this scene as myself, being harassed by my own mind and thoughts, reflecting that small voice that fills me with many negative things inside me, which sometimes causes me a little anxiety and above all makes me feel locked up, a prisoner.
I quite liked this drawing as well as the last work that I presented in my previous post and from here came the bird that I drew in that work, here I painted this crow that represents that voice inside me, full of negative and sad thoughts, really It is a somewhat difficult moment for me, but I am glad to know that I have at least something to cling to, to paint and say what I really feel.
I made the sketch and although it seems strange I think the most difficult thing was to draw this crow, I almost never draw animals, but I tried to do the best I could, I chose a quite realistic palette and a beautiful red hair, I liked the contrast that his hair made Unlike the other tones, for the grass, I chose a desaturated and dark green, however later I changed this color because it looked better with a slightly more yellow tone, a detail that I quite liked was painting her nails red too and by the way these hands were quite a challenge as I don't normally paint them in this position but I think it looks good.
With a gray and white tone I painted his clothes, he needed a color that was not so striking in his clothes to give more prominence to his face, which is what I like the most.
For almost all the drawing of my character I used a diffuse brush, in his hair I used a hair texture brush interspersed with the diffuse brush, I added many more details to the face and I definitely fell in love with his eyes, they were very pretty and full of light , continue applying the grass, for this I used a brush that simulates this shape and texture and here I realized that I really didn't like this shade of green very much, so I made a color adjustment to the grass layer and gave it a hue more yellow, also paint some long branches coming out of the lawn. I started to fill in this cute raven using a desaturated shade of blue.
And draw its feathers, for this I used 3 brushes, the diffuse one, a hard brush and a textured brush, its texture was similar to a feather but not exactly the same, so it cost me a lot to paint and make it look as real as possible , the colors I used for the crow ranged from black to desaturated dark and light blue tones, finally I painted the sky and added something that was not in the sketch, it occurred to me at the end of everything to draw a kind of fence in the background to reflect even more this feeling of confinement, I finished my work making small color adjustments as always and that it had much more depth and realism.
I want to show her face more closely since I really like how she looks, as I mentioned something that I love a lot about this drawing are her eyes, I love how they turned out, I always try to highlight the eyes in every work I do and for this I feel very proud.
