Commission - Zhan Feng by redsama Commission - Zhan Feng by redsama
A special order from.. well, my sister ==" I wasn't paid any money for this pic, instead I received 10 household-chore coupons from her LOL (That means I can ask her to do my housework part for 10 times :D)

This is Zhan Feng (not sure about his name) from my sister's fav novel, Lie Huo Ru Ge. I didn't read the book, just drew him based on her description =P

Sketch (or better version ==" ) >>

Zhan Feng (?) @ Ming Xiao Xi

I opened this. Closed this. went 'wait, what?' Opened this again. Stared at for while.

This is very beautiful! I love the view point; the butterfly at the front flying passed, how you have created the perspective of the butterfly being closer to me -and the distance between the two is very effective. ^__^~ The detail of his face and fan and the effect of it all is truly breathtaking (I mean it! I just audibly sighed =)).
I love the style in which you did the background, the simple colour of the blue on the one side of the background fading into the white of the other side creates a sense of space and even without further detail it makes me think of a garden.
I love the colour blue in this picture, it is brought through the layers of the picture, connecting the branches to him, to the butterfly.
Truly great in my opinion ~^^~ sorry for such a long comment!
What paints did you use, (my guess ;p =inks, water colour and pencil?) I've spent all this year experimenting with water colour and oil paint, it's been really fun! (despite the stress of a finishing due date!)
I really like this picture! Also I am in a good mood ~^__^~ (partly because of your nice comment!)
did your sister like him? And have you used up all your coupons yet? ;)

Omg, thank you for such a thoughtful comment! I'm really really happy to read it! :tighthug:
And in this picture, I used pencil, watercolor and white ink ^^ I haven't had a chance to use oil paint. I need to try it sometime D:
And haha, she likes it but still complains about it somehow D: And I used all of the coupons in just a short time hahaha :D
