lovely! your style fits so well with this character <3 very bold and free... with a side of Burton-ness ;D

Very Burton-like with the usage of bold lines and harsh colors. I love it!

How gorgeous is this???? I love watercolour, and you wield it very well! I love the shadows on her body and the delicate details of her face and stitches ♥

Oh, I have to agree -- your style plays SO well to Burton's. Wonderful color-mixing. Great job!

I love the way you do shading, omg. And the subtlety of the mood. It looks very Dave McKean.

Hee, Dave McKean is always a big inspiration to how I put down the lines. Thanks!

How lovely--the style you used really seems to fit the movie. :)

Ooh, this is super pretty. :) I love your color choices, and the shading on her "skin." Such an appropriately moody piece, also (both in her pose and the general starkness/lack of background detail). Poor Sally.

So sad. And I think the watercolor adds nicely to the stitched-together nature of the character.

It's lovely, it really captures her. and the mood is eerie and yet soft, like it should be for this fandom. awesome job!

She's lovely--so melancholy and perfect. And I love the watercolor and inking. She looks so delicate compared to the chair--like it's another thing trapping her there.

I love how the quality of the washes support the sadness of the composition--just lovely.

Oh, this is so pretty and sad! Watercolors are the perfect media for a picture like this, and I think your art style suits Burton's world really well.

Scratchy! You worked well with the variations in ink line, and the shape of the background wash gives it a wonderful composition. Really nice, really eloquent.

beautiful! great colors and love that background effect.

Lovely painting~ I don't see enough watercolours. The medium is really suited for this piece, too, with the textures and luminosity.

The watercolours here are so fantastic -- the way they bleed over just a little bit into the separate patchwork parts of Sally, but in some places seem to hardly cover what they need to, like there's slips of colour missing. I really like it! Wonderful stuff!

Lol, the bleeding is me being impatient to put the paint down and not waiting for it to dry properly... :)
Thanks!

The watercolor is phenomenal. I love the dark background, it's clean and brings such contrast to the image. She looks so vulnerable there, i's touching in a bittersweet way.

Oh, absolutely lovely! :D

So fabulous - I LOVE the big brush of watercolour background that sets up the mood, and then Sally curled up on a chair, I mean. I feel like I should be incredibly melancholy with this, but something about the way Sally is looking off to the side, almost distracted or thoughtful gives this a whole new perspective of hope. Which is pretty awesome!
