I actually said "wow" out loud when I saw The Painting by ~meru. The intense colours and deep expression of the character, contrast nicely with the stark white wings. ( Suggested by AieienNothing and Featured by Marker-Guru )

its a shame the waterprint i dont think you can really apreciate that way the painting...

still, it looks amazing also considering that its a tarditional media

i know...^^; ... i usually don't do watermarks on my pictures..but with all the art theift i've been hearing about with other artists i just don't want to take the chance....i might put a small non-water marked version on my website in the near future though....^^;;

but thank you for the comment!

let me know i really want to see your work good


maybe you can have a recognition mark taht defines you than you can make it a part of the painting, in sumi-e art the signature of the artist goes with the composition of the painting it forms a part of it

it will be good maybe instead of putting the watermark you can have a signature that its part of the painting, i dont know hehehe :)

good luck :)

This is very beautiful... The colors are gorgeous and your mastery of the media is greatly respected. I can never seem to get any control over watercolors, so I really apreciate how concise your lines are and the smoothness of your colors.

*chuckles* Understood. My boyfriend has taught me a lot about drawing that I wouldn't have gotten nearly as well from any of my professors. It just happens that way sometimes.

And no need to thank me. I was just telling you honestly what I thought. It's very beautiful.

Just so you know... I'm fairly certain (c) doesnt actually mean copyright. I'd use the symbol if I were you.

Never the less, it is meaningless what you write. If you put it on line it will be stole and ot is nothing you can do to stop them.
