The dragonflies are actually a proof of my laziness, as at the beginning I was planning to make them fly around the whole drawing - and as you can see, poor things are just twitching.

If you're going to mention Klimt's The Kiss in the comment, save your fingers. It's not like I haven't read it over and over 1000 times under this work, it's getting tedious. I used to have art history at high school and then at the university and I've seen that painting quite a couple of times, but I'm hardly a fan of Klimt and I didn't have this picture in mind when drawing this.

Watercolour and pencil on 30x42cm watercolour paper.

:skull:A sense of mighty tensions that ravage alike the perfected ride known my friend, there, well, well done here....:skull:
Lovely! Oh, wow, the dragonflies really add to the atmosphere. How did you animate them?

Made a second layer with their wings in another position and saved in .gif format.

Ojej, czy to moja wyobraźnia płata figle czy może naprawdę te ważki latają? : D nieziemski pomysł, jesteś genialna. Gdybym mieszkała bliżej, to już zaczęłabym się szykować na Twoją wystawę... Tak żałuję, że nie mogę przyjechać'' Jestem skrajnie oczarowana Twoim stylem, trochę przypomina fińskie bajki : D znasz… ? Jeśli uda Ci się dostać baśnie Andersena z ilustracjami Dismana (a może już je znasz ; ) ) to koniecznie zobacz. Są świetną inspiracją, uwielbiam jego kolory!
Tak poza tym, ta ilustracja, a dokładnie poza, przywodzi na myśl Klimta, nie mylę się?
