nice:) For the Elizabeth Arden one, is that the actual scan? Some of the petal details aren't very visible..

Really nice. Like the colours. Reminds me of Georgia O'Keefe's paintings. Maybe you should stay on this technique and style for a while. Explore it further. Live it. Somehow I think women have this special touch when depicting flowers.:-) .

that's really good control on those watercolours ;)

just a small detail - the cap looks a little off balanced? other than that, overall effect looks great and.. girly haha...

I always draw little man with a big belly. But I just don't know why people prefer taller man together with shorter women. Could this be the other way round? I will try doing this on my drawings :)

On, the pose of your big belly man reminds me about images from Egyptian Art!

It's girly, but it's nice! I saw it in Style magazine, and it's a really nice intepretation of the actual perfumne ad. The illustration brings out the light and floral essence of Pretty. Nice job on the bottle, same observation abt the cap. Read your contributor's interview as well - yellow's profile is so different from the real you! :)

zero and sansan: yes u are right! i didnt notice it before tho, thanks for pointing that out :-) the style team liked yellow better than me, so he got the interview instead. ha.ha.

sokkuan: thankew, me went around China. i'm tanned now. woot!

art addict: hey thanks, i never saw it that way before.guess because i'm short myself. But what u suggested is a fresh way of looking at it, for me :-)

dang i think the watercolour one shows you know your art basics right. that takes skill to do so nicely. yellow undies are great too. i would wear them. on the outside!

Mr.B said...

The first one ish nice! reserve on yellow undies for me yo!

F L E E said...

adeline said...
