Lady Apple by obsessedkitten Lady Apple by obsessedkitten
This is a painted version of one of the sketches in my last sketch medley!

It's been a while since I painted anything from a proper pencil and paper sketch - and actually kept to the linework. I'm quite pleased with the results!

----------------
Pencil for sketch.
Photoshop CS5 + Wacom for colours.

Original sketch can be found here:

Thanks for looking!

I saw the sketch and I'm glad to see the painted version. :)
Reminds me slightly of Jessica the rabbit.
Way cool shoes :XD: Oh, just noticed the fishies on the dress! Nice detail!

Thank you! It's nice working with something simple. You kind of have to concentrate what you know about painting into a little area :D

This is really lovely. Her elongated figure looks so graceful and I like the calm expression on her face. Also, those shoes are awesome.

I really like this one, nice colours, nice characters, and a nice tribute to the goldfish ;) I also like that she really feels a bit like a fruit, all those soft colours :] The light on the hair and the lower part of her dress really catch me eye, aswell as the fish pattern. I also like the way her face reflects the light... almost feels a bit like porcelain :O Very geisha-ish, fits the mood. The red around the eyes and the lashes are cool too :3

Thanks you lovlies! I enjoyed working on this a lot :) It took me back to cleaner brushes, and since I've been working with such textured brushes for so long I kind of enjoyed it. Maybe I can combine it from now on!

Yeah, maybe! I guess one could, kinda use more textures around focus areas and stick to smoother stuff where you don't have to have as much detail and things going on? :) Test it a bit in your next piece I'd say, I'm sure it'll be cool :]

When you first mentioned coloring this sketch, I was dubious because it wasn't my favorite of the group (not that it's not beautiful, just not my fav!), and I couldn't imagine what you'd do with it. Well, I stand corrected! This is SO beautiful, and it actually really was a good lesson for me to see how much depth and color can bring a sketch to life (Im especially enamored with her feet/shoes/shadow!)

I aim to surprise! Or... something like that. I knew a lot of people would prefer the other sketches, but to me this had the strongest silhouette. I really liked how compact her shape was which made her seem even more reserved and elegant.. (psst... I am working on another one of the sketches now though!)

I really like the simple non-existent background, it's a nice touch that makes her stand out that much more.

very nice! I really love how you designed her outfit and put in the little fish details, and the falling leaves and snow particles really suit her well : D
